Title: Tell the Wind and Fire
Author: Sarah Rees Brennan
Publisher: Clarion Books
In a city divided between opulent luxury in the Light and fierce privations in the Dark, a determined young woman survives by guarding her secrets.
Lucie Manette was born in the Dark half of the city, but careful manipulations won her a home in the Light, celebrity status, and a rich, loving boyfriend. Now she just wants to keep her head down, but her boyfriend has a dark secret of his own—one involving an apparent stranger who is destitute and despised.
Lucie alone knows of the deadly connection the young men share, and even as the knowledge leads her to make a grave mistake, she can trust no one with the truth.
Blood and secrets alike spill out when revolution erupts. With both halves of the city burning, and mercy nowhere to be found, can Lucie save either boy—or herself?
Celebrated author Sarah Rees Brennan tells a magical tale of romance and revolution, love and loss.
So my sister recommended this to me and at first, I was a bit weary, but in the end, I picked it up.
This book had a bit of a slow build up for me. While there were many things happening at the beginning of the novel, I didn’t really connect to anything. I wasn’t very interesting, but then a little after the halfway mark, things started picking up for me. I started getting much more into it and ended up loving this book.
The ending completely made up for the somewhat lacking beginning. Seriously. This book gets amazing and beautiful. The ending left me completely stunned. I loved it, and it was so beautiful.
So yes, I would totally recommend this book.
