  • Strange Fire (Anchor & Sophia #1) (Export Edition)

    Parents’ Choice Recommended

    What if the asteroid heading toward Earth in Tommy Wallach’s New York Times bestselling novel, We All Looked Up, actually hit and demolished our planet?

    What if, after thousands of years, two civilizations rose from the ashes? What if those cities found out about each other?

    Through the viewpoints of multiple characters, Strange Fire describes the beginnings of an inevitable war between these two civilizations, a war that will pit faith against science, zealotry against technology...and brother against brother. 

    They said that the first generation of man was brought low by its appetites: for knowledge, for power, for wealth. They said mankind’s voracity was so great, the Lord sent his own Daughter to bring fire and devastation to the world.

    The survivors were few, but over the course of centuries they banded together to form a new civilization—the Descendancy—founded on the belief that the mistakes of the past must never be repeated.

    Brothers Clive and Clover Hamill, the sons of a well-respected Descendant minister, have spent their lives spreading that gospel. But when their traveling ministry discovers a community intent on rediscovering the blasphemous technologies of the past, a chain of events will be set in motion that will pit city against city…and brother against brother.

    Along with Gemma Poplin, Clive’s childhood sweetheart, and Paz Dedios, a revolutionary who dreams of overthrowing the Descendancy, Clive and Clover will each play a pivotal role in determining the outcome of this holy war, and the fate of humanity itself.

    The Giver meets The City of Ember in this start to an epic new trilogy from New York Times bestselling author Tommy Wallach.

    “Was this story written about me?”
    I shrugged.
    “Yes or no?”
    I shrugged again, finally earning a little scowl, which somehow made the girl even more pretty.
    “It’s very rude not to answer simple questions,” she said.
    I gestured for my journal, but she still wouldn’t give it to me. So I took out my pen and wrote on my palm.
    I can’t, I wrote. Then, in tiny letters below it: Now don’t you feel like a jerk?

  • We All Looked Up

    Four high school seniors put their hopes, hearts, and humanity on the line as an asteroid hurtles toward Earth in this contemporary novel.

    They always say that high school is the best time of your life.

    Peter, the star basketball player at his school, is worried “they” might actually be right. Meanwhile Eliza can’t wait to escape Seattle—and her reputation—and perfect-on-paper Anita wonders if admission to Princeton is worth the price of abandoning her real dreams. Andy, for his part, doesn’t understand all the fuss about college and career—the future can wait.

    Or can it? Because it turns out the future is hurtling through space with the potential to wipe out life on Earth. As these four seniors—along with the rest of the planet—wait to see what damage an asteroid will cause, they must abandon all thoughts of the future and decide how they’re going to spend what remains of the present.
