Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This sequel to Elemental (2012) is quickly paced and jam-packed with action. Thomas and his friends are on the hunt for a new island to call home after battling pirates, the unknown terrors of the outside world, and sometimes themselves on Roanoke Island. Thomas’ newly discovered element comes in handy now as well as bolsters his previously flagging self-esteem. When the small band of hardy, desperate adventurers discovers a colony of people living on another island, hope flares until suspicious events threaten to tear apart the group of friends like nothing has yet. John realistically weaves dystopian elements into what could be a future America, using familiar settings and creating past situations that believably lead into Thomas’ story. The truth behind the division between elementals and nonelementals lingers throughout the story, finally revealing itself and creating even more plot twists to urge the characters along. A strong follow-up to an unusual, interesting postapocalyptic world dusted with just enough romantic and paranormal traces to attract a wider readership. Grades 7-10. --Julie Trevelyan

More About the Author

Antony John was born in England and raised on a balanced diet of fish and chips, obscure British comedies, and ABBA's Greatest Hits. In a fit of teenage rebellion, he decided to pursue a career in classical music, culminating in a BA from Oxford University and a PhD from Duke University. Along the way, he worked as an ice cream seller on a freezing English beach, a tour guide in the Netherlands, a chauffeur in Switzerland, a barista in Seattle, and a university professor. Writing by night, he spends his days as a stay-at-home dad--the only job that allows him to wear his favorite pair of sweatpants all the time. He lives in St. Louis with his family.

I read the first book, Elemental and got hooked. It has action and adventure, as well as a sprinkle of romance. I have Skyped with Antony John, and he's a cool guy (with an awesome British accent). I will be watching for Book 3!

Format: Hardcover
Thomas has become the unwitting leader of their small group. The adults have been cowed for their deception. And when they arrive at Fort Sumter, the Chief takes Thomas under his wing and treats him as almost an equal. But it soon becomes apparent that he’s hiding something sinister.

Firebrand is the second installment in the Elementals series. Blending post-apocalyptic fiction and fantasy, this series is dark and unpredictable. There is plenty of mystery, suspense, danger, and intrigue – making this sequel just as exciting as the first. The characters and story are captivating. The novel was impossible to put down. And with another mild cliffhanger ending, I’m left eager for the next in the series.
