Today on The Rest Is Still Unwritten I'm happy to be celebrating the release of Ignite by Danielle Rogland! Ignite is Danielle Rogland's debut novel and an is an enjoyable dystopian read.
My review of Ignite went live yesterday and I hope you enjoy the excerpt I have today to share.
In the ruins of dystopian London, the Empire rules through fear and fire.
“Everyone knew about ‘The Flames’ and how much trouble they had caused the Empire. They were the only rebel group anyone knew of that had lasted longer than a few months without getting caught, leaving candles behind whenever they snatched somebody out of the Empire’s grasp. To get involved with people like them is stupid. So stupid.”
Ever since her parents were murdered by the empire’s agents, Jacks has been living on the street as a pickpocket trying to keep away from trouble. When she accidentally witnesses the rebel group ‘The Flames’ in the middle of an operation she is unwillingly swept up into their world, and has to decide if she’s going to go back to looking after herself or join the rebellion and help them fight for the people of London Ruins.
She knows that getting involved was stupid, but does she really have a choice?
YAY! I certainly hope to see more of this world in the future and join The Flames on more adventures!
