The year is 2176. Day Daniels is a Canadian Mountie who believes in their motto “Be It All. Do It All”. On a routine patrol, Day’s partner is killed, his throat slashed. Day is determined to find the ones responsible and see that they are brought to justice.

Canada of the future is much different from the Canada of today. It has been closed off from the rest of the world. Its borders have been closed since the great plagues that almost destroyed it.

When Day’s search for the truth leads her to a meeting with an informant at the techbar Flash Point she meets sexy bartender Lian Firebrand. Day soon discovers Lian is an undercover government operative and shaman and her new partner. To say the two don’t hit is off well is a very big understatement. So begins the second book of the much anticipated 2176 series.

In Day Of Fire Kathleen Nance has done a spectacular job of continuing the remarkable 2176 series. This installment quite literally took my breath away. I very much like that the second book takes place in Canada and gives the reader an even broader view of what the world has become in this day and age. Ms. Nance does a fabulous job of describing the Canadian landscape and the reader really feels as if they are transported to the year 2176. Day and Lian do their best to heat up the cold Canadian setting.

Both Day and Lian are strong characters that the reader won’t soon forget. Day Of Fire is most defiantly Day Daniels' book and she will long be remembered after the last page has been turned.

Ms. Nance not only had the job of creating a story for her featured characters but she had to tie her story into the first book The Legend Of Banzai Maguire. She has done a splendid job on both accounts. I was pleasantly surprised by the continued quality of the story telling. Ms. Nance and Day Of Fire will have the reader eager to read the next installment of the 2176 series, which will be The Shadow Runners out in June by Liz Maverick. Mark your calendars now, as you will want to keep up to date with this spectacular series.
