After the Fire

‘The things I’ve seen are burned into me like scars that refuse to fade.’
This book really moved me. It’s a gripping tale of survival, it’s thrilling and spellbinding, it’s a must-read book. I like how the book is presently being told in the hospital, but the real storyline is Moonbeam telling Doctor Hernandez her past life with the Lords Legion. As the book goes on she tells the Doctor more about the Lords Legion and its secrets. Moonbeam soon starts to realise that Father John is not as he seems……
The first passage of her life that Moonbeam tells the Doctor is when Nate arrives at the base, the first happy moment that comes to her head. She talks of him coming to the Lords Legion of his own free will on foot. ‘The Centurions rush to the cloud of dust, guns raised. There are Private Property signs hung along the fence, but they don’t always put people off. I walk towards the gathering crowd of my Brothers and Sisters and push my way to the front where I squeeze in between two Centurions. Walking down the dirt road is a man. He is wearing faded jeans and there’s a duffel bag slung over his shoulder and a smile on his face that makes my knees give way beneath me. The man stops a decent distance away from the Centurions and their guns and raises his hands in a gesture of peace.
“ Easy now. I come in peace.” “What is your name, friend?” Says Horizon. “I am Nate Childress.”’
