From Kaylee’s Prologue the darkness of her writing is apparent – and seductive to the reader – ‘Everything would soon be perfect. Pope Matthæus stared out over the inner city. This far above the ground, he could see parts of the train tracks that bordered the heart of Anaxgora. It was a fence, weather the dumb animals inside it recognized that or not. They instinctively shied away from it, staying huddled warm and ignorant in their cloistered homes. They knew nothing but the fields, the food, the knowledge he saw fit to dispense. They were precious, his lambs. And they loved him, as a good flock should. He put a hand on the tempered glass, leaning further against the thick wooden banister that kept him from pressing up against the glass. Too many men, other popes such as he, had jumped from this glass tower. Too weak, all of them, to do what must be done. Some of the lambs must be slaughtered. The blemished had no place in the world he was about to forge. They could no longer spare the time to chase after those who wandered. The Miracle of Science had done great things. They had wiped out disease, torn down the ancient warmongering behemoth that had called itself a governing body. They had created a perfect, productive society, built on reason, discovery, and honesty. But an infection still festered in the outer limits. Crime was not gone, despite their efforts to discourage it through the Cinderscar Project. Ignorance of the wolves outside the fence would be the death of his flock. So he would slaughter a handful, to save thousands. It would be worth the momentary pain and confusion of his flock, to rid them of the danger forever. The outer limits would be purged, and a new order would be born. The plan was nearly complete. He only needed five thousand of them, and the rest could burn. Everything would soon be perfect.’
Kaylee provides a fine synopsis at the beginning of her book – a map of where this initial adventure is heading: ‘Cinderscars never lie. Josephine Martin has never questioned this simple truth. Since the great plague nearly wiped out humanity, cinderscars have been there to single out the wicked, and protect the chosen from genetic deviants who would plunge the world back into ruin. So decrees the Miracle of Science. But when Josephine’s father stands accused of murder, she knows it has to be a mistake. But the only person who believes her is a mysterious boy with arms covered in cinderscars. Pursued by inquisitors, Josephine must uncover the truth and rescue her father. Though that truth may destroy their very society.’
Kaylee’s decision to revise her original Cinderscars proves to be a wise choice – more deeply developed characters, better transitions among the diverse elements of the story, and in general a more polished evidence of fine writing. Finishing this novel provides that much-lauded result of wishing for the next installment. That is the suggestion of a successful novel and series and now that is here. Grady Harp, January 17
