Will Hill is a total master of books that give you a serious thrill, a hefty dose of adventure and sucking you into a series so hard you’ll read them over and over.
We were totally gutted when the ‘Department 19’ series ended, but Will is back with a brand new book, ‘After the Fire’, and it sounds incredible. Here’s the deal:
Deep in the Texas desert, Moonbeam lives with her Brothers and Sisters. They’re safe, protected by the Fence and Father John. Because Father John knows what’s right and what’s wrong. But then Nate arrives from Outside, stirring doubt…and suddenly Moonbeam’s world is on fire. But what happens after? What happens when you lose everything you’ve ever known?
Powerful, gripping, and beautifully told, bestselling author Will Hill’s After the Fire is a novel about love, hope, loss and, ultimately, courage.
Sounds epic, right?
How would you like to see the cover AND be one of the first people in the world to read the book?
It’s your lucky day. Look at this stunner!
Will loves it too.
After The Fire was inspired by a real-life event, the Waco siege of 1993, and tells the story of Moonbeam, a seventeen-year-old girl who has grown up inside a religious cult in the Texan desert, kept safe by the Fence and the absolute authority of Father John. But when her entire world is destroyed in a blazing inferno, she finds herself in a place every bit as strange and disorientating as the one she escaped. There she tells her story to two strangers, although she knows she can never tell them the whole truth. Because some secrets are too big to reveal and some things that have to stay hidden, no matter the cost…
I love the cover that Usborne have designed for the novel. I think it captures the mood of the book perfectly without giving too much of the actual plot away – the washed out colours and the rough, scratchy quality of the images suggest (to me, at least!) the unfamiliar world and darkness that lie at the heart of Moonbeam’s story.*
*They also somehow managed to find a font that is exactly the same as my handwriting. Which is slightly unnerving :)
