I read this book as part of The Morgaine Saga omnibus; the sidebar information is for that edition. As in Well of Shiuan , Fire of Azeroth opens with Morgaine and Vanye in a new world although this time without introducing a new supporting character.

This world, though, is not already a disaster. Quite the opposite: the deep forest into which they've travelled, fleeing the horde from the previous book, is pristine, sheltered, and beautiful. When the meet the native inhabitants, they're welcoming and trusting, such an abrupt change from their previous travels that Morgaine and Vanye are both tempted and worried. I'm very glad that, after the previous two marginal books, I went ahead and read this one.
Not only is it much better, it shows what the previous books were missing. Previously, Morgaine and Vanye's darkness and angst have been set against worlds that were at best harsh and at worst nightmares.
It's hard to tell a story in uniform black. Here, Cherryh writes a world that both the reader and the characters care deeply about and want to protect.
Gate of Ivrel
The background provides contrast and a reason to care about the story. In the Shathan forest and its inhabitants and protectors, Cherryh captures a sense of age, sacredness, and longing that reminded me of Tolkien's Lothlorien or any of the more successful portrayals of sacred woods. It's beautiful, deep, and full of a feeling of peace and age in the way that no location has been previously in the series. The inhabitants are worth caring about, Morgaine and Vanye make friends the reader can root for throughout the book, and Shathan is resilient and not just the next target of evil.
This makes for a more balanced story, a more effective sense of growing suspense, and a climactic battle and aftermath full of hard decisions. Cherryh also finally lets Morgaine open up a bit.
