Firebrand (Alternative Detective #2)
by A.J. Hartley
Hardcover, 336 pages
Published June 6th 2017
Once a steeplejack, Anglet Sutonga is used to scaling the heights of Bar-Selehm. Nowadays she assists politician Josiah Willinghouse behind the scenes of Parliament. When government plans for a secret weapon are stolen, their investigation leads right to the doorsteps of the city’s superexclusive social club, Elitus. Ang has a chance to catch the thief, but only if she can pass for a foreign princess. Her best chance to learn the ways of royalty lies in the aloof Dahria Willinghouse and the intense Madame Nahreem, a woman possessing high standards and unusual pets.
Yet Ang has other things on her mind. Refugees from the north are trickling into the city, but an ambitious politician is proposing extreme measures to get rid of them. She soon discovers that one theft could spark a conflagration of conspiracy that threatens the most vulnerable of Bar-Selehm. Unless she can stop it.
“What a world Hartley has created! A world of great danger... murder... suspense on just about every page. And enough twists and surprises to keep the pages turning long into the night.” —R.L. Stine, bestselling author of Goosebumps
“Readers who come for the tightly plotted mystery will stay for the heroine who does all she can to resist.” —Kirkus, starred review
“Hartley has composed another electrifying fantasy that buzzes with intrigue and timely political and social issues, making this a must-have addition to any collection.”—Booklist, starred review
“A richly realized world, an intensely likable character, and a mystery to die for.” —Cory Doctorow, New York Times-bestselling author
Steeplejack was very unexpected. This read like a dystopian in a world you needed to know more about and a girl fighting for survival when most Steeplejack's die young. If you love Vicarious by Paula Stokes then you need to add Steeplejack and Firebrand to your TBR today!
