dystopia/post-apocalyptic fantasy (less fantasy, reads more like an alternate world)This book was so good I am finding it hard to talk about it.To say I loved it is an understatement. I felt incredibly moved right from the beginning. And by the end I felt like I had emerged from reading the book somehow changed. *wipes tear away* That's all I have for this review for now.Good Winter of Fire By Sherryl Jordan is a Kindle In a grim future world where the sun has vanished from the sky, people glean what warmth and light they can from the firestones mined by an untouchable caste known as the Quelled Countless taboos are shattered when Elsha, an idealistic and rebellious Quelled girl, is chosen to be handmaid to the Firelord the man revered by those calling themselves the Chosen Traveling iIn a grim future world where the sun has vanished from the sky, people glean what warmth and light they can from the firestones mined by an untouchable caste known as the Quelled Countless taboos are shattered when Elsha, an idealistic and rebellious Quelled girl, is chosen to be handmaid to the Firelord the man revered by those calling themselves the Chosen Traveling in the privileged class, Elsha encounters ugly, unthinking prejudice she also meets a few relatively enlightened Chosen men, who cannot help falling in love with the feisty maid Spurred on by a hatred of injustice, Elsha battles against sexism, improves life for the Quelled, and even it seems hastens the return of the sun to her world.. Award winning New Zealand author Sherryl Jordan began her writing career with picture books, but soon moved on to novels for older readers Her breakthrough came with Rocco, published in the United States as A Time of Darkness, and since that time she has gone on to pen many titles for young adult and juvenile readers that have been published both in her native New Zealand and throughout the world The recipient of a 1993 fellowship to the prestigious writing program at the University of Iowa, Jordan used her time in the United States to speak widely at schools and conferences about her books, which blend fantasy with bits of science fiction and romantic realism All my young adult novels have been gifts, she noted in the St James Guide to Children s Writers I don t think them up They hit me over the head when I least expect them overwhelm me with impressions, sights, and sounds of their new worlds enchant me with their characters and dare me to write them.. A viral Book Winter of Fire Few YA novels are are well-written enough to be just as compelling when read as an adult - much less read as an adult for the first time, and not just revisiting a loved story from one's youth, with all the fond memories and nostalgia we bring to a re-read. But that is how I've just read this book, and I was extremely impressed.The parable of slavery and repression is a familiar one; whether we consider the idea of women being subservient to men, or one people enslaving another - both of which are present in the novel - the struggle for freedom and equality rings just as true. The world as described by the author isn't burdened with complex illustration, which might have been a detraction under a lesser-skilled pen. Here, though, the simple facts of Elsha's world are strongly felt without the need for complicated geography, history, or socioeconomic structures (as is often the case in novels even like this one, where the element of fantasy is very slight). We see the harsh inequalities in the world as presented, and feel vividly the fire in Elsha's heart to remake that world and lead her people to a better place. And yet the richness of character and the importance of the relationships she forms in the course of her journey is never neglected, and often does more to compel us to her story than the forces and long-standing beliefs arrayed against her.That this YA novel is out of print is a damn shame, as this story really deserves to be known more than simply via those who loan out their cherished, hard-to-find and hard-to-replace copies.
