    Would Recommend

    After the Fire was a very interesting read and held my attention the entire time. We start off right in the action of during the fire. Honestly, I’m not a big fan of books starting off right in the action. I haven’t had a chance to get to know the characters yet. Names are being thrown around with meaning to the main character, but I haven’t been properly introduced to them yet. I’m not connected to characters enough to care very much about the situation they are in and the emotions they are feeling. For me, these types of scenes are more effective after I’ve gotten to know the characters a bit. This book is told in an interesting way. The entire book is told from Moonbeam’s perspective after the fire. It’s mostly her talking to a psychiatrist and an FBI agent and relaying all the stories of the goings-on at the base. I’m not a huge fan of the way this was told. I think it would have been more intense and exciting if it were told in a linear timeframe, because we know the end result already, so there is no reason to worry for Moonbeam. We just hear about things that happened to her and others in the past. So, it’s just not as effective in causing me to be at the edge of my seat with anticipation (though, to be honest, this did still happen at times). Also, not a whole lot happens in the current day, but some things (some important things) do happen. But it’s mostly Moonbeam coming to realizations about the life she’s been living and healing from it. Having said all that, I was still completely invested in Moonbeam’s journey. I felt for her and really connected with her character. The storytelling was really good, too, even though I wasn’t a fan of the setup. I was totally captivated by the story. I would recommend this book. I’ve never read a book about a cult before, but I found it to be a very good book.

    Emotional

    I enjoyed how the book used the Before and After format to unfold the story events. The main character, Moonbeam, has an intense and fascinating story to tell, which author, Will Hill, does in a moving writing style that pulls a reader in and places you right into the trauma and action. After the Fire is an emotional, riveting, and sad story. It is a compelling YA novel not to be missed by any reader.

    After the Fire

    After the Fire is a fictional book by Will Hill that feels like an account from someone who lived and was witness to the events. After the Fire is listed as a Young Adult story, I am far from that age category and enjoyed it very much. At times After the Fire is a page turner. I was given an early copy to review.
