We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia

We Set the Dark on Fire

It is expected to be published on February 26, 2019, by Katherine Tegen Books.

I don’t know how I found out about this book. Maybe someone retweeted the information and I thought it was interesting. This is the debut novel for the author. I don’t know what it is about the synopsis that pulls me in, it just does. Cannot wait for February. 

I love this cover. I love how the colors fade from one other. I love how there are images that are cut out – such as birds, the flowers, and the flames. I love the typography. What do you think?

In this daring and romantic fantasy debut perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale and Latinx authors Zoraida Córdova and Anna-Marie McLemore, society wife-in-training Dani has a great awakening after being recruited by rebel spies and falling for her biggest rival. 

At the Medio School for Girls, distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarized society. Depending on her specialization, a graduate will one day run a husband’s household or raise his children. Both paths promise a life of comfort and luxury, far from the frequent political uprisings of the lower class.

Daniela Vargas is the school’s top student, but her pedigree is a lie. She must keep the truth hidden or be sent back to the fringes of society.

And school couldn’t prepare her for the difficult choices she must make after graduation, especially when she is asked to spy for a resistance group desperately fighting to bring equality to Medio.

Will Dani cling to the privilege her parents fought to win for her, or will she give up everything she’s strived for in pursuit of a free Medio — and a chance at a forbidden love?
