What is there more to say about to this book other than it is the explosive finale to the Fire Sermon trilogy of books. For a world where everyone is born with a fatal bond of twinship, where one twin is healthy and the other disabled in some form and they are segregated as such into rival ‘races’ – the Alphas and the Omegas – there is only one way that this story can end.
For one cannot live if the other doesn’t survive.
Francesca Haig keeps you guessing though. Cass is a seer though, and her visions show a world that is burning. This is a book that races towards history repeating itself with another nuclear attack on Elsewhere – the one place that could save the Alpha and Omega people and end the war. Can Cass change the future. Expect as much of a rollercoaster of life and death and emotions pulled every which way, as in the first two volumes of this trilogy. This is a story that does not pull any punches as it holds a mirror up to our own society.
This is an epic story set years in the future, but it is unnervingly a story that could so easily become a reality.
You understand the power of stories. It doesn’t matter if every word isn’t accurate. It’s the message that matters. You knew that, even then. You know that stories matter.
