Publisher's Summary

Book two in the critically acclaimed The Fire Sermon trilogy - The Hunger Games meets Cormac McCarthy's The Road in this richly imagined postapocalyptic series by award-winning poet Francesca Haig.

Four hundred years in the future, the Earth has turned primitive following a nuclear fire that has laid waste to civilization and nature. Though the radiation fallout has ended, for some unknowable reason every person is born with a twin. Of each pair, one is an Alpha, physically perfect in every way, and the other an Omega, burdened with deformity, small or large. With the Council ruling an apartheid-like society, Omegas are branded and ostracized while the Alphas have gathered the world's sparse resources for themselves. Though proclaiming their superiority, for all their effort, Alphas cannot escape one harsh fact: Whenever one twin dies, so does the other.

Cass is a rare Omega, one burdened with psychic foresight. While her twin, Zach, gains power on the Alpha Council, she dares to dream the most dangerous dream of all: equality. For daring to envision a world in which Alphas and Omegas live side by side as equals, both the Council and the Resistance have her in their sights.

    "liked it"

    This story was entertaining enough but some of the details were too detailed. Some of the temper tantrums and whining by the main character made me think she was a hopeless complainer and overly emotional. n

    All in all, the story kept me entertained enough to finish it. And, if there is another book in the series I will listen to it, if only to see how it ends...

    "A sequel You can't put down"
    What made the experience of listening to The Map of Bones the most enjoyable?

    Having not listened to the previous book in over 6 months, I enjoyed the summary information in the beginning. Cass is a ego-centric character. As Zoe & Piper begin to evolve and the plot thinkers, you become hooked. The performance by Laura Fortgang was excellent, and pacing keeps you invested in the story.i could not put down the 2nd half of the novel!


    What other book might you compare The Map of Bones to and why?

    This series falls somewhere between the Hunger Games & the Divergent series. (Closer to Alegent & Insergemt for dentils and back story.


    Which character – as performed by Lauren Fortgang – was your favorite?

    Zoe is so complex, and modern.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent series. The Amazon reviews are dull and inaccurate. The story is complex, but just as good as the Fire Sermon. Many of your questions from the first novel get answered. Can't wait for Mrs. Haig to publish the final installment.

    "Great Story"

    I am a fan of the Hunger Games. This isn't quite as good, but is well worth the time. If there is a third book, I'll be all over it!!!
    Well time spent listening!!!

    "Better than the the Fire Sermon"

    ... In both story and performance. I will admit I struggled through the first one with no intention of reading the second but after doing so I am glad that I did. The reader did much better in this book than she did in the first one but she is still not my favorite. I probably would avoid the audible version of a new series with the same reader. That being said she did pretty good this time with only the hint of the nasally whine from the first. It may be the book itself lending toward the reoccurring whiny monologue from the main character, who believe it or not is still my least favorite character in the book. The author did manage to flesh the characters out a bit more which was interesting. I like the idea of the story and I will probably read the third which I fear only can end with tragedy (although who knows maybe Haig can surprise me?)
