The Flame Never Dies by Rachel Vincent
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The first book in this series, I loved because of its condemnation of religious corruption in a unique post-apocalyptic setting.
The sequel continues to build on all of that, reaching some seriously emotional, and quite often cuckoo-bananas, new heights with a twist or ten a minute, particularly in its second half.
I think I read somewhere that this is to be the end of the Stars Never Rise series, but honestly, I hope not. Not with that ending, and not with Vincent's clear gift for writing this genre. If this is the end of the series, though, I hereby bid it ave atque vale.
