"We devoured them!" Mark Amery.
Mark Amery's teenagers devoured the first two great books in a new series for young adults - and their parents - Children of the Furnace. They're by Nelson author Brin Murray and set in a future inspired by the threats of climate change.

Little bit anxious about this - but my first book launch turned out to be a lovely experience, amazing turn out and lots of enthusiastic, friendly faces. Yay! So thrilled at the fantastic support. Our young readers were FABULOUS.😁 Brilliantly well done, Urvashi, Indy, Georgia and Edward - you are superstars!!
"Injustice? Stick it to them! Tyranny? Let’s rebel! Alien invasion? Save the world! Also, where else do you get genuinely kick-ass female heroes outside YA fiction? The adult world is trying to catch up – but they’re still wearing high heels."
“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, Children of the Furnace
“Thorough and vivid, a book I wanted to get back to every time I had to put it down.”
- NZ Book Council Librarian Blog
"Amazing. Vivid and fascinating… nuanced and complex. An engrossing novel that changes the way you see the world."
-Caitlin Lyle Farley, Readers' Favorite, 5 star review
