Product description

Review

"With its achingly slow-burn romance and incisive examination of power structures, this is a masterfully constructed novel, made all the more impressive as it's a debut."--ALA Booklist (starred review)

"A richly constructed world full of fantasy and diversity, with a mystery that will keep them guessing until the very end."--School Library Journal (starred review)

"This fierce, feminist novel throws memorable characters into a provocative set of circumstances, and the constant twists will leave readers yearning for the conclusion."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"This well-crafted fantasy offers a mirror that reflects themes in our own difficult world, namely privilege, immigration, and individualism versus the common good. A queer subplot with sensual tenderness adds rich complexity to the story. Thrilling and timely."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

Reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, We Set the Dark on Fire burns with parallels to today's biggest news headlines. Readers will walk away with thought-provoking questions to ponder, and the story's ending will ignite further fascination.--BookPage (starred review)

"Mejia's debut creates a lush and beautiful Latinx-inspired world featuring complex female characters. With thrilling adventure, unexpected twists and a cliffhanger ending, readers will clamor for the next installment."--Shelf Awareness (starred review)

"Mejia pens a compelling, gripping story that mirrors real world issues of immigration and equality."--Buzzfeed

"We Set the Dark on Fire is dystopian YA as you've only dreamed it could be. Mejia's story is specific yet universal, intricate and vast; it's fire and smoke and the phoenix rising from the ashes."--Tor.com

"With lots of action and palace intrigue, the novel is a page turner."--New York Journal of Books

"We Set the Dark on Fire simmers with political revolution and forbidden love between two powerful young women--I couldn't put it down."--Audrey Coulthurst, author of Of Fire and Stars

Five starred reviews!!

In this daring and romantic fantasy debut perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale and Latinx authors Zoraida Córdova and Anna-Marie McLemore, society wife-in-training Dani has a great awakening after being recruited by rebel spies and falling for her biggest rival.

At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarized society. Depending on her specialization, a graduate will one day run a husband’s household or raise his children. Both paths promise a life of comfort and luxury, far from the frequent political uprisings of the lower class.

Daniela Vargas is the school’s top student, but her pedigree is a lie. She must keep the truth hidden or be sent back to the fringes of society.

And school couldn’t prepare her for the difficult choices she must make after graduation, especially when she is asked to spy for a resistance group desperately fighting to bring equality to Medio.

Will Dani cling to the privilege her parents fought to win for her, or will she give up everything she’s strived for in pursuit of a free Medio—and a chance at a forbidden love?
