Tell the Wind and Fire


Thanks to NetGalley and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for the arc of Tell the Wind and Fire by Sarah Rees Brennan! Tell the Wind and Fire is a take on A Tale of Two Cities with a bit of magic involved. Lucie’s boyfriend, Ethan, has a doppelganger named Carwyn. Ethan lives in the Light city and Carwyn is from the Dark city. Lucie’s parents are both non-existent in her life. Her mother disappeared (she was punished for using magic to heal people) and her father was tortured and drained of his blood and dark magic use. Lucie’s father has some lucid moments but not many. She gets involved in the rebellion unknowing who is leading it. The dynamic characters make this a wonderful book! I also appreciate the author’s note at the end of the book that explains her reasoning for basing her story on A Tale of Two Cities. Highly recommended for fantasy readers as well as readers of Charles Dickens.
