Fire City




An exciting, very on-trend, new direction by multi-award-winning author, Bali Rai.

Fire City is a lawless place, plagued by gangs of zombies, and ruled in an uneasy alliance between humans and demons. Those who don’t belong must fend for themselves, hunted for sport each night or taken prisoner by the demons and ‘disappeared’. Then, into this chaos comes fifteen-year-old Jonah, a stranger with vengeance on his mind and secrets to hide . . .

Praise for Fire City

“Rai never shies away from difficult topics, and here tackles the controversial issue of honour killings. It's utterly compelling, and will be much-debated.”

Fiona Noble, The Bookseller

“... a gritty read... The different naratives add to the intrigue and the plot moves along at a rapid rate.”

Vanessa Lewis, The Bookseller
