Review of Fire Country (Country Saga #1) by David Estes (Review by Sparkles)

Fire Country (Country Saga #1)
by David Estes





In a changed world where the sky bleeds red, winter is hotter than hell and full of sandstorms, and summer's even hotter with raging fires that roam the desert-like country, the Heaters manage to survive, barely.

Due to toxic air, life expectancies are so low the only way the tribe can survive is by forcing women to procreate when they turn sixteen and every three years thereafter. It is their duty as Bearers.

Fifteen-year-old Siena is a Youngling, soon to be a Bearer, when she starts hearing rumors of another tribe of all women, called the Wild Ones. They are known to kidnap Youngling girls before the Call, the ceremony in which Bearers are given a husband with whom to bear children with.

As the desert sands run out on her life's hourglass, Siena must uncover the truth about the Wild Ones while untangling the web of lies and deceit her father has masterfully spun.

My Review -
 5 Stars!! 

  *I received a free e copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

This is the first book from David Estes that I have ever read. Now I'm kicking myself for not having read it sooner. From the moment I picked it up I did NOT want to put it down. The author draws you right in to this amazing complex world with these amazing complex characters. With one book David Estes had made me a fan for life. I experienced so many emotions reading this book. I laughed, I cried, I cheered, and I felt terrible sadness. Siena, Circ, Skye, Lara, Wilde...they are all my new best friends. I read A LOT and I have no qualms stating that this book has the BEST ending I've ever read. Fire Country has easily made it's way onto my "favorites" shelf and David Estes has made his way to the top of my favorite author list. Amazing book that I would recommend to anyone who loves amazing books!
