    1. This book is beautiful Grady has a incredible gift for story telling His writing style is so beautiful, I d read his books only for that, regardless of whether I liked the story or not There were times I just had to stop and reread a sentence because it was so beautiful and profound Masterfully done I was prepared to give this a lowish rating at first, but the I read, the my rating climbed I got so connected to the characters, particularly Aiden and Ben I knew right away I DID NOT like Christi [...]


    2. Firefighting burns in Aidan O Neill s blood The son of a fireman, O Neill has a sixth sense about fire and often takes dangerous risks When one act of disobedience nearly gets a rookie killed, O Neill is suspended His weeks off are supposed to be a time to reflect but instead he escapes to Mexico, where another rash act of bravery actually kills him But only for a few minutes Called back to Reno, he s now haunted by visions of hell and paralyzed in the face of fire And at the worst time, because [...]


    3. 3.5 stars When I first started this I considered giving it about two or three stars It took me a bit too get into the writing and story, but once I did I couldn t put it down You can tell the author knows what he is talking about when he describes the fires and I felt like I was Aidan as he went into burning buildings Aidan wants to avenge his father death, but he learns much from the fire He can t control itd God must control him The ending was intense with Aidan facing the arsonist Can t wait [...]


    4. This is a fast paced book about a fireman who is having trouble dealing with the death of his father who died in a fast burning, too hot fire that was never investigated In the first few chapters he gets suspended, goes to Mexico and saves the life of a child, almost losing his life in the process, and gets called back to work before his two week suspension is over, because of a plethora of fast burning, too hot fires in the their sector of the city.


    5. You could probably get through the first third of this without knowing it s meant to be Christian fiction, except for the clean language The beginning sets up Aidan A O to his friends as a somewhat reckless firefighter who has a weird relationship with fire, and a family history of tragedy The second third introduces the mystery element these fires aren t right They re being set by an arsonist The last third seems to switch gears completely, making it a full force Christian fiction story as sudd [...]


    6. 4.5 Stars I loved this book This was an awesome story, although it is different than most suspense novels, but I loved that I have recently discovered that I enjoy suspense stories about firefighters, and I really enjoyed this one I especially loved the fact that the author is a firefighter and paramedic so he writes from personal experience, this book was written so realistically that many times I felt like I was really there, living the story right alongside the characters The mystery behind t [...]


    7. I was first introduced to Shawn Grady through a blog for books opportunity with his third book Falls Like Lightning I loved that book and am now going back to read his first two.Through the Fire didn t disappoint I loved the fast pace action, the characters and the edge of my seat suspense of what was going to happen next.Mr Grady s history as a fire fighter and paramedic are great for his writing The emergency scenes in the book are well written, and it is obvious that he knows what he is writi [...]



    8. Fantastic readThank you Mr Grady for a great read The characters are very believable and the setting is very good Will definitely read from this author.


    9. Amazing GraceI loved the story, the message I really was able to get into this, and appreciate the characters get to know them.



    10. Aidan O Neill, a fireman with an innate ability to read fire, knowing when and how it will burn, becomes overconfident in his gift and it leaves him with the guilt of another fireman s tragic accident.It is a blow to his pride and to his faith Told with a great deal of knowledge, not only in a fireman s line of work, but also in a man s struggle to cope with a loss and with guilt This isn t a carefully weaved tale of salvation, but one of redemption.Even though he encounters betrayal through the [...]


    11. Even smoke runs from the fire But I find myself compelled to enter hell s havoc and the swirling chasm, to take for my own the taming of the element, screwing my courage to the sticking place When blackness billows heaven bent from hallways, and flame tips lick lintels like a serpent s tongue, the Sirens stand singing Mast ties won t hold fast.Enter the cloud.Enveloped by heat.Vanquish the destroyer.I come from a family of firemen And borne into my blood was a gift It arrives at times in whisper [...]


    12. Amazing lookAs the mother in law of a chief in FDNY, I have always thought that firefighters are special This book, with its insightful handling of tragedy associated with the job is eye opening By toughing it out , and not talking about their haunting experiences, they risk losing everything My son in law was at ground zero every day for months He has never recovered completely from losing so much and so many This book has helped me understand what goes on in a firefighters head They are a trul [...]


    13. What an amazing novel When I read a taught mystery with well developed characters, I m happy But this book goes beyond that Woven into this story are powerful metaphors and similes something I struggle with as a writer , as well as vocabulary that I actually looked up for the precise definition Now THAT is a good read in my book I bought this book on whim, and I m glad I did I will be reading the entire series.


    14. I hadn t planned to be a firefighter when I picked up Shawn Grady s debut novel, Through the Fire But that s what it felt like as I plunged into the action with firefighter, Aidan O Neill Wow This guy can write And are you serious This is his first novel I look forward to his next novel.


    15. GrippingIntense, heart wrenching, and suspenseful I really got a lot from this book The brotherhood and camaraderie within the characters was tangible.





    16. I decided three things as I read this 1 Firefighters are awesome 2 I really don t like Aidan 3 It s hard for me to enjoy a book much when I really don t like the main character who s supposed to be a sympathetic character.There was some interesting writing mostly when the author was describing the regular calls that a firefighter has and it was enough to keep me from completely disliking this novel, but there was too much annoying stuff and poorly done writing to let it be much better than toler [...]


    17. Writing style is sparse in places, sort of a stream of consciousness with some fabulous analogies and way of putting things which fit the character, Aiden The story was told entirely from the male Aiden point of view and the action was non stop There was a lot of firefighter jargon, which I followed OK because I took Firefighter I training, but the casual reader might find it a tad overwhelming or hard to follow There is a definite faith element which I like , understated, very well done and rea [...]


    18. I couldn t finish reading this book Seems like it should be in the teen category Parts of the book were improbable to me How did he go from a coma in Mexico to fighting fires again in Reno so quickly I really doubt that would ever happen.



    19. StruggleI really struggled to get into this book I had no issues or dislikes about the book other than having to force myself to keep going.


    20. This was my pick for try a chapter and while I did like it I didn t love it so I won t be getting the rest of the series.



    21. Wow, I just finished reading Through the Fire I m thankful for the review copy of this fascinating, enlightening book I realized how clueless I was as to what firefighters go through day in and day out to save peoples lives and risk their own It s astounding Only someone who s been in a firefighter s shoes could show the realistic side of this demanding, sacrificial job that most of us take for granted Shawn Grady s been in the fire as a firefighter in Reno, for many years, which gives him a uni [...]


    22. Through The Fire by Shawn GradyWe start off in a day of the life of a fireman, Aidan O Neill Only, Aidan isn t just a fireman He s got a gift, passed through his family He has the ability to hear the fire, read the flames, know where they re going to be next What a fantastic gift this must be for a fireman However, and I believe due to this gift, Aidan has placed his work above all else In some attempt to avenge his fathers death, he will not rest until he has beat every single fire that God has [...]


    23. The debut novel of Shawn Grady, THROUGH THE FIRE, is an adventurous chronicle of Reno firefighter Aiden O Neil and his struggle to overcome the loss of his firefighter father several years ago Grady shines when writing about the daily fears and dangers faced by firefighters while on the job, and the numerous accounts of Aiden and friends fighting the fires are the best part of the novel.Aiden is also a really good character When his actions cause a rookie firefighter to almost lose his life, Aid [...]
