After the Fire

This book is a fabulous novel which is inspired by a real event!!!

Its all about a girl ( Moonbeam, 17) who was part of the "Lords Legion" which is an extreme version of the Christian faith which is really intriguing in my opinion. It's also about her recovery after the fire when the government comes to help Moonbeam and her brothers and sisters.

The chapters are set in "before" and "after" the fire but they both link up in the story beautifully with flashbacks that Moonbeam has about before the purge and after it.

The setting in this book is mostly a room where she and doctor Hernandez and agent Carlyle ask her questions and try to clear her head, called 'interview room 1'. Also, it's in her room where she draws and thinks about the last session she had with them both.

This book really makes you feel like Moonbeam and you feel her struggles and her life which really makes you want to turn over the page and carry on reading.

I really like the ending of this book because it makes you feel really happy for Moonbeam and her brothers and sisters.

However, this book is quite dark which I'm fine with but other readers may not but this, in turn, added suspense and made you carry on reading the brilliantly crafted novel.

My favourite character in this book is Agent Carlyle due to his behaviour and characteristics. He is loving but also he's very down to the point but also Moonbeam trusts him. Also, he is very good at showing sympathy towards her which I like.

Overall I would give this book a 9 out of 10 due to the graphics factor of this book.

I would recommend this book to people over 13 or mature 12-year-olds and I really enjoyed this book and it was a great page-turner.
