    " it was a good story but it got a little boring with the actual updates of the fires where they were buring etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 2/11/2014

    " This was a well written story about the fires in Yellowstone Park in the 1980s. The author also throws in a romance on the side- it makes for entertaining and at times- edge of your seat, heart pounding action. I would recommend this, especially those who like books that combine writer's creative liberties and historical events. "

    " Kind of boring. Glad to be done with it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanie Jackson | 2/3/2014

    " In 1988 firefighters from across America gathered at Yellowstone National Park. to fight the worst forest fire in years. Claire needs to get away from Houston and the memory of losing her partner in a fire. Chopper pilot Chris Deering is trying to escape from his past in flying fire and in drinking. Through the intense story of battling this historic blaze the two develop a relationship that may be the salvation of both. No guaranttees from the author. The day to day struggles and fears fuel this story just as the undergrowth and dead trees that tourist based policy left throughout the area of Yellowstone fuel the monster fire. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louanne Ayala | 1/30/2014

    " I thought it was a good read. I thought the author's choice of words in some instances was odd - like she was trying to sound like she knew how to use big words without really knowing how to use them properly. I will continue reading the series to see if her writing matures with the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bj Johnson | 1/24/2014

    " This book was ok. I enjoyed the history, but would have liked more sbout the Nez Pierce. The love triangle for me was a part of the story I could have done withot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marti | 1/23/2014

    " A Free Friday nook book This is an entertaining enough tale of the summer of 1988 when firefighters struggled to contain fires that were ravaging Yellowstone. In this novel, there are three main characters--Clare Chance, firefighter from Houston along with her daughter later in the story,Steve Haywood, the forest ranger,and last of all, Deering, the heliocopter pilot. The most exciting part, I think, is where Steve, Clare, and a bunch of rookie firefighters are trapped by the fire and have to lie down on the ground under a thin fireproof covering while the fire blazes on top of them. If there hadn't been the obligatory who's going to get the girl--whom we read twice early in the book has small breasts, I would have given it four stars. "

    " Great read! Made me want to go back to Yellowstone! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee Thames | 1/15/2014

    " An ok read. My wife and I visited Yellowstone in 1999 and the damage done by the '88 fires was still very evident. It was a great vacation and I read this because it was set in Yellowstone. Standard plot and characters. Nothing stood out to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elaine | 12/27/2013

    " A free download on my Nook. I enjoyed it. My sister worked a couple of summers in Yellowstone and I have a couple of cousins who used to be smoke jumpers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Starr | 12/21/2013

    " This book was interesting in the fact I learned a lot about fighting wild fires out west. The story line was OK, but for me there was too much fire fighting details so I'd get bogged down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yovani | 12/21/2013

    " I was kind of fascinated by the story of the fire itself and less interested in the characters. It was a weird book but I'd probably read more of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Krystal Mccoy | 12/8/2013

    " Action, romance, and natural disaster, this story is well-written. I just personally had trouble getting into it. I don't think I related well to the heroine. But I persevered and finished, and liked it! I even learned about an event in history that happened when I was too young to pay attention. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 12/8/2013

    " Free Friday Nook Book - really good "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marla Sommer | 11/26/2013

    " Interesting history of the Yellowstone fires in 1988, but very lame fictional characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 8/2/2013

    " It was ok. Not my most favorite book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heidi R. | 3/6/2013

    " This is a great historical story which melds fictional characters with real facts of the fires that raged through Yellowstone Park in 1988. It has romance, drama, and suspense. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 1/29/2013

    " I really liked this. It was well written for a Kindle book (editing done well). Had enough emotion to put you in the situation but not so much that you would be irritated with any of the characters for long. THe characters felt REAL to me. It kept me wanting to read more and more. :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cara Best | 8/7/2012

    " It was only slightly more interesting than reading the back of a cereal box!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 7/4/2012

    " Lots of info about forest fires & the people & methods that fight them. A somewhat interesting tale of the redemption "by fire" of the 3 main characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 5/27/2012

    " Pretty good book about the Yellowstone fires and the firefighters who put their lives on the line to fight them. Good action and a bit of romance thrown in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dixie Bowman | 4/1/2012

    " I loved it. Maybe because I could relate to all the places and even the experiences as I have been a wild land and urban firefighter and first responder. I loved every minute of it. Thanks for a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bruce | 12/16/2011

    " It took me a while to get through this book. The author couldn't seem to figure out if this book was about fighting wild fires, a love story, and mother daughter tale or all of the above. Needed more focus. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 4/18/2011

    " Descent story, characters are interesting and well fleshed out, but was a bit slower than most of what I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Najae | 8/15/2010

    " this book is a good book this cover page is not the one on my book but it was about the fires that occured in yellowstone washington state in the summer of 1988 "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl K | 6/9/2010

    " Enjoyable book. Sometimes I thought it was a romance novel and at other times I thought it was an adventure novel. Actually it was neither. But I did enjoy reading it. "
