This part of the saga introduces new characters to love and hate, as well as occasional, appearances from previous people in the first novel. It continues to have new and unique ideas which just whet the appetite for more. Enjoy.

Content probably most suited for teenagers/ young adults.
Post apocalyptic where the central areas of the world have become a desert and survival is made possible by the development of a plant for food. But has the plant got more uses... some quite unexpected. Our main character escapes from basically a cult and finds the world isn't as she was told and the story of the world unfolds with her adventures with a dramatic change at the end of the story.
When Ruby’s driven to flee from the safety of her house in order to escape a particularly vile man, she and Thorn risk death, but find a safe haven at a school instead. Only there are dangers there, too. Not everyone welcomes the newcomers.
Then an urbanized settlement holds a contest to see who can develop a use for Fireseed that’s the most beneficial to mankind. Ruby and the others at the school see it as a chance to improve their lives and perhaps the lives of others in their own regions.
As the characters work on their projects for this contest, the talents of some of these young refugees are revealed. At the same time the ugliness of others, including the creators of the contest come to light. This contest also alters Ruby’s and Thorn’s lives forever.
I enjoyed discovering the world of Fireseed, its desolation, and then the promise of life’s slow return to earth. It would be a different kind of life, but it was exciting in its possibilities.
For me the story kicked in after Thorn attempted to “heal” the Fireseed with sun. From then, through the contest and into the final scene, I needed to read. That meant I was truly engaged in the book.
It's a great read for a young adult, and I'll be recommending it to those readers in my family.
