The Night Before Christmas: Fuse by Julianna Baggott

Yes it is that time of year for a Christmas Eve review (in rhyme). This year is a preview of Fuse by Julianna Baggott:

‘Twas the night before Christmas
I was alone in my flat
Wrapped up in blankets
And a warm woollen hat.
I had just finished reading
A book titled “Fuse”
It blew me away
Left me emotionally bruised.

The sequel to “Pure”
A series quite apocalyptic
Although the titles don’t hint it
They are in fact cryptic*

The Pure are the dome-folk
Tied up with secrets and lies
They use special forces
As assassins and spies
Against the Fused, who are people
with a permanent weld
To doll’s, babies and cats,
All things that they held.

They melted together
In the great blast
When society ended
In a nuke holocaust!

Now armies are building
and new plots are hatching
There are heroes a-growing
and the villains need catching!

The series is awesome
I think you should read it
If you have a need for apocalypse
Then these books will feed it!

Fuse is the sequel to the amazing Pure by Juliana Baggott. The book is due out in February 2013 when my full review will be posted.

A few words that will be used in my review: dark, compelling, awesome, intriguing.

* the titles not the story
