YA Spec Fic Amazement (III): Mortal Fire


Mortal Fire is about 16 year old part Pacific Islander Cannie and is set in an alternate New Zealand (Southland). It deals with magic, memory and power in a strange, unsettling (uncanny, in fact) and complex narrative. One of the most original fantasy books for teens I’ve ever read and Cannie is a bright, determined, brilliant heroine. Knox talks about her inspiration for the book here
