The Fire Sermon- Francesca Haig

I recently read, the Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig and honestly I had no plans to read this book. I was surfing and then my eyes hit the cover and I was like,*I want to know more.* I love the cover, it is artistic and simple which I totally love. The funny thing is that I don’t know how but I always manage to grab books that either involve magic or twins or both. I don’t read synopsis, in rare cases I do read them but mostly I don’t. So, it is a mystery. 

I enjoyed reading this book, it was brutal in a way. The start was mysterious and kept me interested. I read it in a go. I liked the concept of Alpha’s and Omega’s but man it was depressing. I hated Zach, I don’t remember a series in which I hated a sibling so much than this one. I really hated his approach to life, his thinking, he was plain brutal. Always justifying his actions like they could be justified. I adored Cassandra, felt sorry for her but despite her sorrow, she had some sense. She was relate-able, and I loved that she voiced her opinion about matters, and wasn’t dumb. She knew what was happening around her, and she knew how she could benefit from her circumstance. The author managed to show brutality on levels where I was kind of reminded of George Orwell’s 1984 and a little bit of Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. They treated humans like they were nothing. I liked the story but man I hated that world. The plot pace was great and there were interesting changes, a few of those changes I had expected but overall I enjoyed reading it. I am excited for the next part. Still hate Zach,  and am happy with that ending. 🙂
