Description

I think you showed her little mercy by dumping her into the lives of a broken and predatory couple like Jasper and Petra. Córdova builds up action in subtle moments in the background, but her focus is always on our complex and intriguing heroine, who I am excited to see grow even more in the sequel.

Instead I’m simply proud of Incendiary because I think my heroine is riotous and unforgettable, and if you read it I hope you’ll like her too.But things are not quite as they seem and Renata is going to have to find the answers in herself before she can truly help anyone else.

Just finished Incendiary on the train to work after just a few days of not being able to put it down.I drafted Incendiary during six insomniac weeks in the spring of 2004, when my first child was six months old and I looked with horror at the world he was growing up into.

It was one of those books that you love to hate but the realism, the pathos, the fear is brought out on every single page. Even the villains were multi-faceted characters who were nuanced and although not exactly sympathetic to them, I could understand some of their decisions and actions. The book feels intoxicating with endlessly beautiful language and creative touches that really bring this intricate world to life.

This structure gives the plot a somewhat uneven pacing, but the battery of revelations during the finale was perfectly pitched. Obviously you deal with the corrupt kingdom and the rebellions attempts to fight back, regain control, and just stay alive.

The power of this novel lies in its extraordinary momentum, which sweeps us along a concatenation of events that follow the bombing. I am an ordinary bloke (an expression that might be used in your fine country or origin) living in Chicago who likes to read. The narrator has a bunch of grammatical quirks consistent with her background as a highly intelligent but patchily educated Londoner. Loved the way you got inside Batman’s head and his 4 year old’s reactions to what was happening around him. She can take a little: your first kiss, your biggest loss, the secret codes of a rebel army… Or she can take it all.

It brings a tear to my eye to think about it, even sat at my desk at work, and I actually don’t think a book has affected me as much in a long long time.
