Fire City




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

Twenty-five years ago the world changed forever. A great war, which had raged for three years ended, and the reign of the Demons began...

Within the crumbling walls of Fire City, fifteen-year-old Martha is a member of the resistance, a small band of humans fighting for freedom in a lawless and horrifying new world. Amidst the chaos of battle arrives Jonah, a handsome stranger with a thirst for revenge and a power to destroy the Demon rulers.
As Martha and Jonah’s lives collide, the future of the resistance is altered forever. The battle for humankind will now begin. An epic story of catastrophe, survival and the power of humanity.

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
