Have your say

WHAT best-selling author Julianna Baggott has created here is one hell of a nightmare world – for her characters, that is.

For us, it’s a sensational, thrilling ride.

The second book in the Pure trilogy, Fuse sees protagonists Pressia and Partridge continue their quest to save their post-apocalyptic world from further ruin, with devastating twists and turns along the way.

Vividly written, it’s little wonder film rights have been bought for this series as each sentence oozes creative imagery that would look fantastic brought to life on the big screen.

From page to page we are also given in-depth access to the minds of our heroes, but at times this can disrupt the pacing as we get too caught up in their observations and thoughts.

Captivating and enthralling, it will leave you wanting more.
