Set in the torrent of the end of days, this book follows a boy on his journey through purgatory as he struggles to regain his memory and survive. Rescued after his death and brought to the first stage of purgatory by his guardians, Zachariah Ezekreth is lucky in some ways, though he doesn’t feel like it. The land he is now forced to call “home” is over-run with demons. No one is interested in aiding the lost souls, and there is no point in trying to pass the tests that would allow one to move closer to salvation.
At least that’s how Zach feels about it. Besides, he doesn’t even know what he did to earn his place in this messed up world. What little experience he has gained has taught him to trust no one. He keeps to himself, pushing everyone away. But there are those that won’t be so easily swayed.
First off, there are his guardian angels, which have a severe lack of good timing as far as Zach is concerned. Then there’s Dewelance – or Dewey as Zach refers to him – a SoulBird determined to help him reach Heaven, whether he wants the help or not.
People of the Fire is a rocky adventure that will keep you guessing. You'll root for our hero even as, at times, you will want to smack him for being so oblivious. It is an enjoyable ride, and good start to the series. So check it out today. See it on Goodreads here.
