Getting to Know the Characters of "Fire" Blog Tour Stop and Giveaway

Last year my first review for Fantasy Book Critic was for an up and coming new author
Kristin Cashore, author of Graceling. Now Fantasy Book Critic has the opportunity to host the 13th stop in a 15 stop blog tour for the upcoming companion novel to Graceling, Fire scheduled to be released October 5, 2009.

Wondering what
Fire is about? Here's the blurb borrowed from Goodreads:

"Fire, Graceling's prequel-ish companion book, takes place across the mountains to the east of the seven kingdoms, in a rocky, war-torn land called the Dells. Beautiful creatures called monsters live in the Dells. Monsters have the shape of normal animals: mountain lions, dragonflies, horses, fish. But the hair or scales or feathers of monsters are gorgeously colored-- fuchsia, turquoise, sparkly bronze, iridescent green-- and their minds have the power to control the minds of humans. Seventeen-year-old Fire is the last remaining human-shaped monster in the Dells. Gorgeously monstrous in body and mind but with a human appreciation of right and wrong, she is hated and mistrusted by just about everyone, and this book is her story."

For the past two weeks
Kristin Cashore has been making stops all over the blogosphere and introducing readers to characters that will appear in Fire. So without further ado Fantasy Book Critic is please to present you, in Kristin Cashore's own words an introduction to 4 characters from Fire:

Lord Mydogg and his sister, Lady Murgda. Lord Gentian and his son, Lord Gunner. Did ever two more villainous teams come betwixt and between? They hate the king; they hate each other; both teams have their eyes on the throne; but only one team can win this fight!"

Does the introduction to these characters have you wondering what's in store? Below is a 40 page look at
