Book Description

14 Feb 2013 Pure Trilogy 2 (Book 2)

The next part in the epic PURE trilogy, for fans of Cormac McCarthy, Justin Cronin and Suzanne Collins.

Partridge has escaped the safety of his father's empire and left the Dome, where his people - the Pures - have sheltered for so long. He has ventured into the destroyed world inhabited by the Wretches, who live crippled by their injuries.

Pressia, a Wretch, is desperate to decode the secrets of the past and, together with Partridge, she must seek out the answers that will save all their futures. But Partridge's actions will not be forgiven. As the Dome unleashes horrifying vengeance upon the Wretches, Partridge has no choice but to return to face the darkness that lies there, leaving Pressia to continue searching for the truth that will change the fate of the world for all time.

More About the Author

Julianna is an award-winning poet, novelist, and young adult writer. For years, she has been thinking about writing a futuristic dystopian novel about a society of haves - the Pure, who escaped the apocalypse and live in an uncontaminated dome-covered city - and have-nots - the wretched survivors who live in the nearly-destroyed outside world.

Product Description


'A great, gorgeous novel, boundless in its imagination. You will be swept away' (Justin Cronin, New York Times bestselling author of The Passage)

'Discomfiting and unforgettable' ( The New York Times )

'This novel sizzles with invention and viscerally disturbs with its portraits of catastrophe' ( The Sunday Times )

'She has a flair for keeping the pages turning with a combination of short, sharp action beats and drip-fed revelations. Strong stuff, and gripping to boot' ( SFX magazine )

Book Description

The second book in the PURE trilogy for fans of THE PASSAGE, THE ROAD and THE HUNGER GAMES.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stuck in the middle with Fuse 18 Feb 2013
It's often hard to review second books in a series. World building is normally done in book one and plot resolution is yet to come. With no beginning or end, we have only middle, so how to judge? 'Fuse' has this problem in abundance. It adds little to book one, remains readable throughout, but leaves the reader only with more questions.

That I feel so discomfited signals a degree of disappointment with the book. I really liked Pure. It is dark and dirty; a dystopian vision that works, that goes deeper than just another Hunger Games clone. 'Fuse' however ploughs the furrow left by Kantiss Everdeen. Pure explores some interesting areas, such as the role of technology in human advancement and the futility of hankering for a better time. The concept of being fused to your past was fascinating. Best of all 'Pure' wasn't all about an oppressed group sticking it to their overlords. Which is exactly what 'Fuse' is.

The fragmented heroes in this book are trying to destroy the Dome and bring down its leader, Ellery Willux. The book starts slowly. The bleak existence of those outside the Dome makes for heavy reading, but things do eventually get going. The narrative becomes exciting and there are some great set pieces, but I felt the story became a string of events, with characters arbitrarily being pushed in one direction or another. It's plot development as practised by the writers of Lost.

Too often characters would suddenly acquire significant pieces of information, important landmarks would not be guarded, characters who had been useless, suddenly acquired value. Worse still, Willux, the central villain becomes a caricature of himself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up to Pure 20 Feb 2013
Please don't read this review if you haven't read Pure (Pure Trilogy), the first in the trilogy.

Pure was a highlight of 2012 for me. Here is a dystopian vision utterly horrific. A vision of a near future so mangled and grotesque that you want to look away but you can't. A world in which all souls who survived the Detonations are fused with whatever they were holding, clutching, embracing, fixing at the time of the catastrophic explosions. One of them is Pressia, the girl with a doll for a hand but uncannily practical nonetheless and she returns as our heroine in Fuse.

As Fuse begins a Wretch is found, her fusions cured, her skin soft and unblemished. But the child Wilda is unable to say anything but this: `We want our son returned. This girl is proof that we can save you all. If you ignore our plea, we will kill our hostages one at a time'. Willux, the leader of the Dome, wants his son Partridge returned. The pretence is gone. There is nothing that the Dome will not do to the Wretches scrambling for a living outside the walls. Pressia, meanwhile, is on the trail of the Seven who alone have the knowledge that Pressia and her followers need to uncover the truth behind the Detonations and the possibility of a cure from their fusions.

Among the characters returning in Fuse are my particular favourites Capitan (or Cap) and Helmud. Brothers fused together they each carry a horrendous burden. Their story develops throughout the novel more so, I'd argue, that any other. There are other familiar figures here too - Lydia, the fearsome Mothers and Bradwell. It is arguable that such is the strength of the other characters that this time Pressia's tale is less prominent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vivid and Powerful 19 Feb 2013
By Marleen TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I received my copy from Headline Publishing through Nudge and rated it 4.5 stars.

In this, the second book in the Pure trilogy, we meet our protagonists where we left them at the end of the book one. Pressia is with Bradwell for whom she is developing feelings she doesn't recognise or trust and trying to come to terms with the fact that she's recently found and lost her mother, discovered that her father may still be alive and the existence of her half-brother, Partridge who is a Pure, from the Dome and the son of Willux, the man who caused the destruction of the world.

Partridge is still living outside the Dome and glad to be spending time close to Lyda, the Pure girl he loves. He is also devastated following the brutal death of his mother and brother; deaths ordered by his father. But his mother left him with something; three vials containing the first step in a cure for the damage done by the detonations. If they can find the next two steps it might be possible to undo the devastation his father has caused, but their chances seem slim.

Partridge's father wants his son back and is not beyond keeping all of the people outside the Dome hostage to achieve his goal. Willux has plans for his son and nothing or nobody is going to stop him from achieving them. Faced with a possible massacre among the Wretches he has come to recognise as different but very worthy humans, Partridge has no choice but to submit to his father's demands. He has to go back inside and hope that he will be able to fight the battle against his father's evil plans from there.

Meanwhile Pressia, Bradwell, El Capitan and his brother Helmud leave on a seemingly impossible quest to find the ingredients and formula needed to create the cure.
