We Are Voulhire: Fires of Vikro by Matthew Tysz is the second book of the We Are Voulhire series. It is a science fiction book mostly centered in Virko.

Lord Eldus of Hillport had planned to have Alcovia send Magnum Caelum iron in exchange for food. It would help them to sell weapons and armor to Hillport and the southern army. They later received terrible news, Lord Eldus, his family, and half of Hillport were dead. The Riva Rohavi had slaughtered them. It became an issue because the iron promised to Magnum Caelum was claimed by Virko. Heer Mayor was sending Rowan, Demetrius Waters, a monk of the church of Destinism, snd Galen Bray to reason with someone in Virko.

In Virko, Hans Hrelek is to take over after his father dies. Lord Venden's health was progressively becoming worse, but he was worried about his only son, Hans. In his house, Rendenhide was built by the military a decade ago. The house was a source of baiting and binding a demon. Hans Hrelek is believed to be controlling that demon and has plans of using it. Demetrius is also planning to do everything in his power to save his hometown. Rowan and Galen Bray are willing to help no matter the cost.

I liked the book because the storyline and plot were amazing, unique, and had a steady flow despite being in several sections. Familiarizing with both old and new characters of the book was easy. Their gradual character development was well-done.

Demetrius was such an epic character. He was willing to help his hometown. His friends Roman and Galen Bray are always there to support him even though it is risky. The friendly, playful, and teasing remarks among them were entertaining and humorous. I'm sure this helped relieve tension present during the strenuous activities that they were doing. The way the author also portrayed Lord Kayden's marriage is relatable. Lord Kayden ignored what he fancied and chose to build a family only because he was concerned about what other people would think of him.

There was nothing I disliked about this book. I will therefore rate it 4 out of 4 stars. I enjoyed reading it and found it engaging and intriguing. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves fantasy and fiction books. But before reading this book, consider starting with the first book of the series to understand the story better. This book immediately continues where the first book ended.
