Praise for A THOUSAND FIRES

“A Thousand Fires pulls you in close and shows you the essence of what it means to keep fighting. Shannon Price is one to watch.” ―Gwenda Bond, New York Times bestselling author of Stranger Things: Suspicious Minds

“Brutal and beautiful, A THOUSAND FIRES broke my heart. A fast-paced tragedy of love, betrayal, and vengeance.” ―Heidi Heilig, author of FOR A MUSE OF FIRE

“Modern, unflinching and filled with haunting, lingering imagery, A Thousand Fires gives the story of the Iliad the bare-knuckled update it deserves.” ―Colleen Oakes, author of The Black Coats

“Fast-paced… Vivid descriptions and intricate details bring San Francisco to life … A promising debut.” ―Kirkus

“A heart-wrenching tale… action-packed and intense… A fantastic read.” ―School Library Journal


Shannon Price’s A Thousand Fires is a breakout contemporary debut―think The Outsiders meets The Iliad―that’s perfect for fans of Courtney Summers and Veronica Roth.

10 Years. 3 Gangs. 1 Girl’s Epic Quest…

Valerie Simons knows the city’s gang wars are dangerous—her own brother was killed by the Boars two years ago. But nothing will sway her from joining the elite and beautiful Herons to avenge his death—a death she feels responsible for.

But when Valerie is recruited by the mysterious Stags, their charismatic and volatile leader Jax promises to help her get revenge. Torn between old love and new loyalty, Valerie fights to stay alive as she races across the streets of San Francisco to finish the mission that got her into the gangs.

Review

A Thousand Fires take a piece of our world gang activity and give us an authentic face that I think we all can identify. The fear that your children will make choices to join causes they believe with satisfy some injustice from their past or change the world. Our MC is an extremely personable character who draws you into her revenge story, struggles with loyalty and love. The author brings up big questions like how do we respond to the blooming violence in our world? How do we continue to survive when we are so broken? What is the cost of seeking revenge for the hurt inflicted by others? The perfect novel for a highschool setting to open hopefully a peaceful discussion about real issues that teens hear about and experience. A great debut novel.
