What a tense and wild ride this was! Fireborne is an amazing fantasy debut that looks at the period just after a revolution succeeds and asks important questions about politics in general.
“And as with God’s the world quaked, to see them fireborne.”
I love the way that the story unfolds, acclimating the reader to the world and the way that the regime has improved society over the last ten years. By the time talks of war began, I was rooting for the new regime that I really connected with Lee and Annie’s actions. Is new always better? A regime called by any other name is still that: a ruling power.
