Goodreads Synopsis for Fire & Flood: Time is slipping away….
Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can’t determine what’s wrong, her parents decide to move to Montana for the fresh air. She’s lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother is dying—and she’s helpless to change anything.
Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It’s an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother’s illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there’s no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.
The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can’t trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?
This is one of my favorite series. It has been described as the hunger games meets pokemon and that could not be any more accurate in my opinion. As of now there are only two books but I would love for there to be a third. I read both of these books really quickly and gave them both 5 star ratings. I can’t recommend this series enough. I have reviews up for both books, you can find Fire & Flood’s review here and Salt & Stone’s review here. If there ends up being a third book you can bet I will be reviewing that one as well!
