Read Strange Fire (Anchor & Sophia, #1) Online Free - It only takes a spark.
They said that the first generation of man was brought low by its appetites: for knowledge, for wealth, for power. They said mankind’s voracity was so great, the Lord sent his own Daughter to bring fire and devastation to the world.
The survivors were few, but over the course of centuries, they banded together to form a new civilization—the Descendancy—founded on the belief that the mistakes of the past must never be repeated.
Brothers Clive and Clover Hamill, the sons of a well-respected Descendant minister, have spent their lives spreading that gospel. But when their traveling ministry discovers a community intent on rediscovering the blasphemous technologies of the past, a chain of events will be set in motion that will pit city against city…and brother against brother.
Along with Gemma Poplin, Clive’s childhood sweetheart, and Paz Dedios, a revolutionary who dreams of overthrowing the Descendancy, Clive and Clover will each play a pivotal role in determining the outcome of this holy war, and the fate of humanity itself.

I know I keep on saying this anytime I read YA, but where were these amazing stories when I was growing up? Now, if I was still in high school (thankfully I’m not) and had to write a book report I’d pick Strange Fire. Wallach packs friendship, family, betrayal, a dusting of romance/lust but more...

Man was destroyed for their desires, now the remnants of the human race are at odds with each other. Tommy Wallach's first novel in the Anchor & Sophia trilogy, "Strange Fire" takes place many years after a catastrophic event destroyed almost the whole world and the Descendancy is a religion...

So, my first thought was, this is quite the detour from Wallach's normal pieces. But as I continued reading it, I realized that The Descendency is what happened to the survivors of the asteroid in We All Looked Up!
Other than that earthshaking revelation, I enjoyed the story a lot, and was investe...

I received an advance copy of this book from Simon & Schuster Canada in exchange for an honest review.
I was really excited to read this book. The science/religion debate is one of my favourite things to discuss or hear opinions on, and with a comparison to books like The Giver, I was immediat...

3.5 stars. Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to my expectations. I really liked Wallach's book (which apparently is loosely connected to this one which is so cool!!) We All Looked Up. I was super excited when I came upon Strange Fire while walking by it in a bookstore. I picked it up and st...

The story is a terrific page turner, and the world is a fascinating combination of Wild West homespun, and hints of a revolution im the making. When I realized when and where the story was actually taking place my mind was blown. This is ultimately a science fiction fantasy about a face off betwe...

"Was it the scientist in him,always eager to research a new subject, or just the sinner?"
Let me start off my review by saying this book was not at all what I expected.. But kind of in a good way. It threw my expectations off and that's what I like. When a book can surprise me! Reading the inside...

I picked up an ARC of this book at ALA 2017 and I'm glad I did! It definitely exceeded my expectations by far! I mean, everyone these days is trying to write the next big dystopian YA novel, right? And this one doesn't sound particularly different from any others, at least from the blurb. It's yo...

I have really enjoyed Tommy Wallach's previous books, so I was so excited to check this out, especially a post-apocalyptic vision of the future where technology has somehow (mysteriously until maybe about half way where we finally learn what happened) destroyed society as we know it and now group...

I went into this cold, having forgotten what the book was about, so it took a little while to get the lay of the land.
The story is somewhat interesting, with a similar feel to Blood Red Road and others, but it’s also a wee bit dull, as well.
It seems like the author is trying to write...
