Product description

Review

We Set the Dark on Fire burns bright... it will light the way for a new generation of rebels and lovers.” (NPR.org)

“With its achingly slow-burn romance and incisive examination of power structures, this is a masterfully constructed novel, made all the more impressive as it’s a debut.” (ALA Booklist (starred review))

“A richly constructed world full of fantasy and diversity, with a mystery that will keep them guessing until the very end.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“This fierce, feminist novel throws memorable characters into a provocative set of circumstances, and the constant twists will leave readers yearning for the conclusion.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

 ”This well-crafted fantasy offers a mirror that reflects themes in our own difficult world, namely privilege, immigration, and individualism versus the common good. A queer subplot with sensual tenderness adds rich complexity to the story. Thrilling and timely.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Reminiscent of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s TaleWe Set the Dark on Fire burns with parallels to today’s biggest news headlines. Readers will walk away with thought-provoking questions to ponder, and the story’s ending will ignite further fascination. (BookPage (starred review))

“Mejia’s debut creates a lush and beautiful Latinx-inspired world featuring complex female characters. With thrilling adventure, unexpected twists and a cliffhanger ending, readers will clamor for the next installment.” (Shelf Awareness (starred review))

“Mejia pens a compelling, gripping story that mirrors real world issues of immigration and equality.” (Buzzfeed)

We Set the Dark on Fire is dystopian YA as you’ve only dreamed it could be. Mejia’s story is specific yet universal, intricate and vast; it’s fire and smoke and the phoenix rising from the ashes.” (Tor.com)

“With lots of action and palace intrigue, the novel is a page turner.” (New York Journal of Books)
