Publisher's Summary

The fire that was to change so many lives started with a single shaft of lightning. It struck on a still and moonless night and cocooned for a while in the heart of an ancient pine. The woman camped nearby with her group of troubled teenagers slept on, hearing nothing. But one among them would be lost forever. For soon the pupa of fire would hatch and engulf the entire mountain. Into this inferno will come the Smoke Jumper. His name is Connor Ford, and he braves the flames to save the woman he loves but knows he cannot have.

Epic story

After a heart-stopping first chapter the book slows its pace and gradually builds up a picture of the main characters and their lives. There's perhaps a little too much about smoke-jumping in the middle of the book, but after that the story takes off and one feels by the end that one has been witness to an epic story.
