Fire Country (The Country Saga) Reviews
In Fire Country, we meet a female who is stronger than she thinks she is. Sienna is a 15 year old member of a tribe of people who call themselves The Heaters. Living a precarious existence on the edge of what appears to be a radioactive desert, the Heaters have lots of enemies. Some are human: the Icy tribe, the Glassie tribe, the mythical Wildes and Marked tribes, but some are not: like the Killers, giant black panthers who hunt for human flesh. And the fire, a disease which eventually kills them all. (some sort of radiation sickness, is my guess). There are hints that a terrible tragedy had befallen modern man: the sky for example was once blue but is now red.
So this was one of those books that kept me up past my bedtime last night. I needed to finish it! I’m not sure when Estes came across my radar, but several months ago I bought this book out of curiosity. I am so happy to have found this little treasure. Estes is a spell-binding storyteller. I was hooked within the first few pages. His country slang imbedded in my brain as I internalized his characters. Fire Country is book 1 of The Country Saga, a companion series to The Dwellers Saga. My understanding is that while Country and Dwellers are separate, the final book The Earth Dwellers combines elements from both. As a reader, that means it is in your best interest to read both sagas in order to understand the final installment.
