Publisher's Summary

The second book in Francesca Haig's incredible Fire Sermon series.

The Omega resistance has been brutally attacked, its members dead or in hiding.

The Alpha Council's plan for permanently containing the Omegas has begun.

But all is not entirely lost: the Council's seer, The Confessor, is dead, killed by her twin's sacrifice.

Cass is left haunted by visions of the past while her brother Zach's cruelty and obsession pushes her to the edge and threatens to destroy everything she hopes for.

As the country moves closer to all-out civil war, Cass will learn that to change the future she will need to uncover the past. But nothing can prepare her for what she discovers: a deeply buried secret that raises the stakes higher than ever before.

What the Critics Say

"This book is a thought-provoking whirlwind of a story, with a fab lead character, grisly politics and brave adventure. I loved it!" (Jessie Burton)
"A hell of a ride. I would recommend it to anyone I can, regardless of age." (James Oswald)
"Set in a vividly realised world of elite Alphas and their 'weaker' Omega twins, it holds a mirror up to our obsession with perfection." (Guardian)
"Words like 'masterpiece' and 'instant classic' are cliché, but in the case of Francesca Haig's astounding The Fire Sermon, they're the only words to use." (Starburst Magazine)
"This terrific set-up spools out into a high tension tale of mistrust and dependency, injustice and optimism, told with poetic intensity." (Daily Mail)
"Haig's post-apocalyptic world is colorfully fleshed out, and the conclusion ask us to consider who, really, is the Other." (Washington Post)
"With its well-built world, vivid characters and suspenseful plot, this book...is poised to become the next must-read hit." (Kirkus)

    "starting to drag slightly"

    Sadly not as good as the first book, the main character can be very grating which makes it difficult to get behind her. it was once again very well narrated.

    "Disappointing second book"
    Would you try another book written by Francesca Haig or narrated by Yolanda Kettle?

    I really enjoyed the Fire Sermon - the first in the series - and highly anticipated the second volume, expecting more of the same. However, the book lacked the depth of story, interesting narrative and shocking revelations for almost 7/8ths of the book. I might purchase the last book but I might not. Yolanda Kettle's narration has been good throughout but I struggled to concentrate - a product of the writing not the narration.


    What will your next listen be?

    Possibly Jodi Taylor or Frank Oswald.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Map of Bones?

    I would have cut most of the first 2/3rds of the book or rewritten them entirely. After the pace and revelations of the first novel, I found Map of Bones tedious and uninteresting in many parts.


    Any additional comments?

    I must reiterate, I really enjoyed Fire Sermon. I read a lot of fantasy and science fiction and I found the idea of mutated twins in a post-apocalyptic world extremely original and engaging. I am really crushed that I didn't enjoy Map of Bones.
