    1. The Firelight of Maalda, is a very intricate and well written story by Melissa Douthit. Her unique storyline and cast of characters are nothing short of awesome. In this addition, you go on a journey from Barenthren (the lost city underground)to Portalis to the cliffs of Maalda. Chalice is faced with many new challenges. Upon the people being transported to Portalis, Chalice learns she is no longer alone, she has a family she didn't know she had. Valderion, Mia and Onya are Chalice' cousins.They [...]

    2. The Firelight of Maalda was a complete and utter surprise. Compared to the first book, The Raie’Chaelia (review here: lostinthought-becca.c) this book was 10 times better, with the writing style more evolved and the characters more relatable. The story and foundations of the tale seemed more original with new information being fed to us, filling us in on all of the important stuff that we really needed to know. Questions were answered that completely confused me in the previous book and helped [...]

I liked the first book better, but this was a really great follow up!What I really like about these books is the amount of fantasy. It reminds me of (and I know I said this in the review of the f [...]

    6. Originally posted at Butterfly-o-Meter Books on Jan 24 2012:Book #2 in the Raie’Chaelia series, The Firelight of Maalda presents us with a very imaginative high fantasy world, interesting world building and certainly an interesting set of characters.The plot is a nice development of book #1, though it doesn’t resolve all the tensions and situations possible, there’s a book #3 coming after all. The story of this book has a nice rhythm in places, but it felt slightly slow for me here and the [...]

    7. The Firelight of Maalda takes off where The Raie'Chaelia leaves off and it keeps going at a brisk pace that is slow enough to keep the reader interested but not too fast as to lose the reader completely. I enjoyed this book even more than its predecessor, presumably because a majority of the backstories of characters and places involved have already been discussed so there is no need to re-hash anything. Chalice is maturing in leaps and bounds as she proceeds to unfold parts of her past, even as [...]

    8. 3.5 stars I want to start off by saying that the author gave me a chance to review this book for free after I had previously reviewed the first book in the series. Thank you Melissa for considering me for this review.Chalice is back in book 2 of the series and it starts moments after we left her in book 1. they have escaped the danger at Chainbridge and they must decide what to do next. People are very sick and they need some serous help if they are going to make it. Chalice helps make a tough d [...]

    9. First, I read the two prequels to the series, The Vanishing and The Journey Begins. Then I started reading the first book, The Raie'Chaelia. They were nice, but I wasn't drawn into the story. I was really worried since I had agreed to be part of the book tour! So, I kept reading.I think it was Buney that changed everything for me. That adorable little furry mountain-dwelling creature. I fell in love with Bunejab the minute he fell out of that tree. I have to say, I always love a good story, but [...]

    10. Reading YA stories is very new to me, I got caught up while reading the stories of Sara Shepard. Many people think that top reviews are only given because the author has his friends, and but that is not the case with me. Personally I don't know the author Melissa Douthit and we are separated by continents. Our connection came with her seeking for book reviewers and I read her post looking up book clubs on . Naturally I wrote to her and she has given to me a free copy to read. The review that I g [...]

    11. This was such a fun sequel to the first book. I have to admit that I was expecting to be bored or frustrated with the story because it is the second book, and so many second books in triliogies drive me crazy. But not this one. The story is well developed from beginning to end. It starts with Chalice, her friends, and the surviving captives of Chainbridge transporting to Portalis. Upon their arrival, the story flowed very naturally with Chalice being separated from her Naeon friends and being th [...]

    12. After reading The Raie'Chaelia last year I was so excited to be able to read the second book, The Firelight of Maalda. Needless to say, I loved The Firelight of Maalda just as much as I loved The Raie'Chaelia.I love Jeremiah, he is such a great guy. I totally get what Chalice sees in him and I just love seeing what he has to say and what he will do. Then there is Chalice, I really like Chalice even if her stubbornness drove me nuts at times. I just love both Chalice and Jeremiah and I think that [...]

    13. Chalice's journey continues! She and all the villagers they rescued travel to the new city. Chalice and her friends discover what a rift there is between the two classes. Now that she is 'royalty' and they are not of her family, she cannot associate with them. When a quest is required, the upper-class will realize just how stubborn and determined their Princess is to save all of them and to do it her way. She just may not realize the cost.Oh how the author catches you up in this story! Chalice a [...]

    14. I've already reviewed the first two books, and I can honestly say, this one shows so much growth by the author.Gone are the cliche's and the "I'm stuck, grab a book, point to something, work that into the plot" feeling. Melissa's earlier talent is really starting to shine.I skimmed through several of the earlier reviews, and there are some excellent ones.It took me just over 2 days to finish the book, but I'm a very fast reader. It was a good enough read, that I found myself picking up my Kindle [...]

    15. The Firelight of Maalda is the second book of the The Raie'Chaelia series.This story continues Chalice's journey to fulfill her destiny,and her love for Jeremiah.Chalice and her group leave Barenthren to travel to Portalis. Chalice is faced with many new challenges and with the help of her friends she will discover new things about her and her powers.She will continue to be a great worrier but she will have to act as a princess of Portalis too.Chalice needs to get The Firestone that was taken fr [...]

    16. Chalice and her friends continue their journey to retrieve the Firestone. Chalice discovers what it means to be Terravailian, the Princess, and the First of the lelierian.The Firelight of Maalda discusses and deals with prejudices between the different nation and gender. Chalice is determined to overcome them.I like that Chalice stayed normal and not pompous as a result of becoming a princess. She wants to be called by her name versus her title.I really like the Chinuk, Bunejab. Every time he is [...]

    17. ******Spoiler included in review****While I enjoyed this book almost as much as the first, I wish there had been more involved along the lines of the main characters search for the missing king and longer in terms of reading. It was an extremely short read. Again, good imagination on storytelling and quite an interesting world created. I was a bit disappointed on the death of Ben. I thought it was too quick and the whole scene that happened in was too confusing. I understand the main character w [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this 2nd installment of the story. While there was still the vivid descriptions that went a little flourishy, there was more action, but also, more development not only into the back story of who Chalice is, but of how the world came to be as it currently operated. I found that I couldn't put the book down, as I couldn't wait to find out if my questions would be answered. Alas, I was left at a loss at the cliffhanger (*pun intended*) we are forced to close the book at, but was m [...]

    19. Good book though I found that some of the descriptions were far to long and i just kinds skimmed over many of the landscape descriptions. Over all it was a good book and i can't wait till November to read the next one!

    20. I promised Ms. Douthit I would read this and review it for her, but then life decided I should stop reading for a while. At any rate I will be getting to this one fairly shortly.
