Heartsblood (Children of the Furnace #3)
Author(s): Brin Murray
AVAILABLE OCTOBER 2020
Three heroes will rise
Wil, Jace and Leah were shattered by the horrors of the New Atrocity but must rise to find strength again before it is too late.
If they are to stand any chance of stopping High Patriarch Sachs’ vision of a world engulfed by fanaticism, fire and blood, they cannot stand alone. They must forge shaky alliances while knowing that in the great battle that is to come, the only friends they can truly trust are themselves.
But then Wil is captured and seems destined to repeat his father’s betrayal.
The odds against them, already steep, become impossible.
Because to save Wil now, they must take on the might of the Revelayshun alone.
‘Hear the rhythm, we said, and feel the heartsblood warm.’ I stand silent awhile. ‘The words still hold true, tho they feel different to me now. Cuz yer gave yer heartsblood for em, is why. They did cost us more’n we can pay. But we’ve come this far, so can’t leave off now.
Have to make yer all count.’
Dystopian fiction at its very best. The last 100 pages are totally heart stopping. A momentous read that you will never forget. - Bob's Books Blog; Thorough and vivid, a book I wanted to get back to every time I had to put it down. - NZ Book Council Librarian Blog; Relationships between characters are complicated and engrossing and the characters themselves are layered and fascinating. A great read and I can't wait to get my hands on the sequel. - The Sapling; A complex, sustained narrative voice and a rhythm of language that offers magic and poetry." - NZ Book Awards, Best YA Category
