Fire and Flood Review


Hey guy its Meagan and today I’m here to review a book by an awesome author, Fire and Flood by Victoria Scott.

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?-goodreads.com summery

First, I give this book 100%, it was fast-paced, interesting, full of great characters, and just all around great!

I wanna get something out of the way now… you’re gonna hear a lot of people call this book a Hunger Games rip-off, and while there are similarities, I would not call it a rip off. Now I really wanna go into detail about so called “rip-offs”, but that is another post for another time…

Now that that is out of the way, we can talk about the characters, and how amazing they are! Really though… Guy is mine… sorry. All the characters are so real and have consciences; when something bad happens, they feel bad about it; they don’t just forget about it and move on as if it never happened. Also, I really enjoyed Tella. It was interesting to see a girly girl in a crazy situation like this, and Victoria Scott uses that aspect of Tella to make some funny narrations. It also has a lot of potential for some great character development!

Next, let’s talk about the Pandoras, and how amazing they were! Seriously, I want one of these things for a pet (specifically Madox). Madox was just so sweet and adorable, but always came to help Tella if she needed it.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! It was everything I hoped for and more! The action was fast-paced, the characters were great and REAL, and I’m just really interested to learn more about the race in the next book!

Questions: who was your favorite character? Who was your favorite Pandora? Did you feel that this book was a Hunger Games rip-off, or do you agree with me? Comment and we can talk!


Keep reading… BYE!
