Review

Set in a near-future world of dark and light, where the lines of good and evil are blurred, one girl tries to navigate life on the edge. Sarah Rees Brennan dazzles her readers with stunning world building and original characters. In a story steeped in tragedy and turmoil, Brennan s characters find their strength in a tale that will leave you breathless till the very end. Hannah Moushabeck, Odyssey Bookshop
"

Sarah Rees Brennan writes with fine control and wit, and I suspect that word of this magical thriller will pass through the populace with the energy of wind, of fire. Gregory Maguire, author of "Wicked "and" Egg & Spoon"
Brennan takes the genres of young adult, fantasy, and romance, and through her own writerly, alchemical process converts them into something new and strange and lovely. Read the first few pages of "Tell the Wind and Fire" and see if you don t agree. Kelly Link, author of "Get in Trouble"
"

"Retellings of beloved classics are tricky, but here, Dickens' overall plot and major characters translate effortlessly into this intriguingly imagined setting. Lucie and Ethan are more complex than their rather insipid Victorian prototypes, and Carwyn retains all the bad-boy fascination of his charismatic counterpart."
Kirkus
"Compelling similarities exist between the narrative and present-day events, where uprisings and terrorist acts are increasingly common, making this an engrossing and relevant read."

Brennan s writing really allows the characters to come alive I ve been thinking about them ever since I finished the book! Plus, the plot twists totally kept me on the edge of my seat. I would recommend it to all of my friends. Kiara R., 17 (Girls Life reader)"

"Lucie is a dynamic and complex character, burdened by oppressive secrets from her past and yet fiery and fierce, hellbent on saving those she loves no matter the cost."
