Thankfully, An Uncommon Blue was a page turner for me. I finished it in one sitting. I couldn't put it down! I loved the growth I saw in Bruno. It may only be the first book, but Bruno went from being a high and mighty blue, to a kind and compassionate multicolored fire. He had his whole life planned, and it was a good life. It wasn't until he was caught in a crime of self defense that his life turns upside down--which caused him to reevaluate his motivation.
I loved Bruno's Granny. She set Bruno straight by reminding him that his parents would be proud of him for doing what's right, not the prestigious career Bruno once wanted.
The writing was fast paced. Ryan did a great job of showing me Bruno's world without simply telling me. It was fun discovering this world where fire determined who you are and how Bruno overcomes it.
This was certainly fantastic adventure! There were twists and turns I totally wasn't expecting. Ryan's writing is amazing and this world he created is intriguing. What would you do if your caste was determined by the fire in your palm?
I had the chance to meet Ryan at the American Night Writers Association (ANWA) Conference. He was a great guy and it was fun getting to know him. I look forward to reading his future books.
I give this a 5 out of 5!!
