After the Fire
After the Fire is a masterpiece that depicts clearly how corruption twists such innocent concepts as a religious base where all believers live a life devoted to being true to God into something much more abominable. Under the leadership, or in this case dictatorship, of Father John, the Brothers and Sisters of The Lord’s Legion are led to believe that everything they do is in the name of the Lord, however, Moonbeam, the brave, resilient protagonist, who loses her Faith very quickly and starts doubting the Prophet, has to keep pretending in the name of survival. This novel, whilst being wholly fictional, shocked me at what goes on in the world and how manipulating and catastrophic lies can be. Additionally, I enjoyed the way Will Hill wrote this first-class piece of work as it is engaging and leaves the reader desperate for more as you are taken straight into the action. As you go on reading the book, everything makes more sense and you start to see the bigger picture of what is going on.
