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.

...even though it was never told in proper English, or even semi proper English. It was more like American slang with a Heaters twist. There is A Guide to Slang and Terminology in Fire Country in the Front Matter of the e-book. Which is very helpful though. Synopsis: In a changed world wher...

4.0 Enjoyed this dystopian tale
I thoroughly enjoyed this YA dystopian tale by David Estes. I know I’ve said it before but I’m usually too depressed by the bleak world dystopian authors create to care about their characters (except for Peeta from The Hunger Games) but I found myself pulled in by Siena and her plight. I won’t give ...

Fire Country by David Estes is one more book added to the young-adult-dystopian hype. The ratings at Goodreads are very good by now and I received that book for free.
