And now for something completely different. The book for this week takes a shift from our norm and into the territory similar to The Hunger Games and Divergent trilogies.
The Fire Sermon by award-winning poet, Francesca Haig, is the first novel in a trilogy. The hardcover novel went on sale last month and it's "a sophisticated, lyrical novel that vividly brings to life a devastated, engrossing world on the brink of transformation - and the courageous outcast determined to push it over the edge." You're intrigued right? I loved this story and felt the above description was spot on. Check out the lengthier synopsis:
Before the blast, they say there'd been sermons about fire, about the end of the world. The fire itself gave the last sermon; after that there were no more.
Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that has laid waste to civilization and nature.
Though the radiation fallout has ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born with a twin. Of each pair, one is an Alpha—physically perfect in every way; and the other an Omega—burdened with deformity, small or large. With the Council ruling an apartheid-like society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the Alphas have gathered the world’s sparse resources for themselves. Though proclaiming their superiority, for all their effort Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: Whenever one twin dies, so does the other.
Cass is a rare Omega, one burdened with psychic foresight. While her twin, Zach, gains power on the Alpha Council, she dares to dream the most dangerous dream of all: equality. For daring to envision a world in which Alphas and Omegas live side-by-side as equals, both the Council and the Resistance have her in their sights.Enter our giveaway to dive into Cass' adventure!
