‘I found it hard to put the book down!’ Esha Packer
’I have not enjoyed reading a fantasy book this much since The Hunger Games and I devoured every single page.’ Zoe Mann
Life outside the domes is not possible. At least that’s what Insiders are told.
Twins Eli and Talia shouldn’t exist. They’re Outsiders.
Their home is a secret. Their lives are a secret. Arafel is a secret.
An unexpected forest raid forces Talia into a desperate mission to rescue her family while protecting the sacred Book of Arafel from those who would use it as a weapon. As Talia and her life long friend Max enter the dome, she makes some unexpected discoveries, and allies, in the form of rugged Insider August, that will change the course of her life forever.
She’ll stop at nothing to save her family but will she sacrifice her heart in the process?
The Fire Sermon meets Gladiator in this brilliant YA debut.
Praise for Book of Fire
‘The world building was done with great detail, I was able to picture what I was reading and that made the experience that much greater.’ Esha Packer
‘I was blown away by the intricate details throughout this book of the 2 different worlds, the characters, the mythical beasts, the character development and their relationships with one another.’ Zoe Mann
‘Michelle has woven elements into the story beautifully, she has brought history and the future together in one book.’ Gemma McGee
Michelle is a firm believer in magic, and that ancient doorways to other worlds can still be found if we look hard enough. She is also a hopeless scribbleaholic and, when left to her own devices, likes nothing better than to dream up new fantasy worlds in the back of a dog-eared notebook. Doctors say they’re unlikely to find a cure any time soon.
In between scribbling, Michelle love reading, running, attempting to play gypsy-folk music and treasure-hunting on deserted beaches with her young dreamers-in-training.
Michelle holds a LLB (hons) degree, an APD in Public Relations and is an Accredited Practitioner with the CIPR (with whom she's won awards for Magazine & PR work). But she is definitely happiest, curled up against a rainy window, with her nose in a book.
