An amazing 5 stars
The second book of the ‘Fuel to the Fire’ series by David Staniforth – Rulers Desire. Again, i cannot stress enough how great this series is!
Blurb: Davran returns to her place of birth in this sequel to ‘Fuel to the Fire’ to find her father leading the beginings of a revolution. She is determined to join the attempt to overthrow the tyranical ruler Saurian, even if it means dying for the cause. First they must recruit more people; convince them that dying while fighting for life is not suicide. But after spending her entire fifteen years disguised as a boy, she is even more determined to do so as a woman. Prophesy, it seems, has given her little choice in the matter.
I loved the imagination of book 1 and there was always a part of me that worried I wouldn’t like the second book as much. Well, I needn’t have worried as I actually loved it even more.
The story continues with Davran and Ronyn (the dragon tamer) arriving back into the dark world. Faced with her parents who thought her dead, and a whole host of people who had been searching for her persistently the last 6 months, Davran must persuade them all that hope is still alive. That they must reach for the rainbows.
Davran is now faced with Saurian, the evil ruler of the Dark Kingdom, and his unrelenting desire that Davran must fall in love with him and be his bride.
There are twists, plots and things that will make you shudder. A great second instalment!!
