After the Fire
After The Fire was a remarkable story about the struggles of everyday life within the Lord's legion. It shows the contrast between Father Patrick's rule and Father John's. It was a wonderful book highlighting all the good things that people were still able to accomplish and the sick, twisted acts of those poisoned by what Father John promised.
Moonbeam was an amazing character capable of standing up to Father John; she saw through his lies and acted by helping out her Brothers and Sisters. One of the most fascinating parts of the book was how words to do with their version of Christianity were seen as nouns, words with capital letters. Many words like this were "Ascension" and "Servants of the Serpent", these little things created an air of unease for the reader, giving them the idea of something similar to a cult or an extremist group.
This story lets us think about the horrible torment that takes place in the book and some similar things happening in the real world. I would highly recommend this book to readers who like action and mystery, many more things that readers enjoy are conveyed in this book but it is a very long one to read.
