Map of Bones (The Fire Sermon #2) by Francesca Haig
I enjoyed this second book in the trilogy. If you have not read the first book, you must read it before reading book two. Cass, along with Piper and Zoe are trying to stop the Reformer, who is her twin brother Zach, and the General, from putting all the Omegas into tanks keeping them in a suspended state while their Alpha twins enjoy life without having to worry about them. The writing is beautiful and poetic. I have an advance copy, so I am not sure if the wording will remain the same, but I think my favorite line is "Words were bloodless symbols we relied on to keep the world at bay." The story shows what prejudice and hatred do and the Alpha twins, in hating their Omega twins are really just hating themselves, their own other halves, which is what all prejudice and hatred in the world really is since we people are all people, and in hating and killing other people, is similar to hating and killing one's twin. I received this book free to review from Netgalley and I look forward to the next book.
