Trigger warnings: violence (loss of body parts, burned bodies), swearing

The first book in a new dystopian series that promises darkness and danger, yet also the strongest bond of family.

Herat of Smoke is a YA dystopian novel about social inequality, social injustice, and family bond. Set in the future, the Earth is too polluted to live in, except in the Domes, where privileged residents live in comfort and protecti

This book starts a new series for Megan but it is filled
with the heart-stopping drama and tension as the previous series’ of hers that I’ve read!

Megan is a masterful storyteller who will have you on the edge of your seat throughout the whole book. I started late two days ago or I could have finished it yesterday.

If you have read any of Megan’s books then you’ll know what to expect but if you haven’t yet well now is the perfect time to start. You are in for a treat so just get comfortable and let

I never thought that a dystopian book about Vampires would work for me, but here we are. Lanni lives in a crumbling city where everyday is a fight for survival. With fires and vampires threatening to engulf them, Lanni does everything in her power to make sure her sister is taken care of. When the fires hit closer to home, Lanni is forced to make a decision that could change everything for her and her sister by leaving the domes and accepting the help of a stranger who says he's their father.

Heart of Smoke is the first book in what promises to be an intriguing apocalyptic/paranormal series.

Picking up at the end of her previous Girl of Glass series, Heart of Smoke follows Lanni, a girl born into a dying world beyond the protection of multiple glass domes that cover the Earth, shielding the one-percent chosen to survive the apocalypse.

Whereas Girl of Glass is told in the third-person, Heart of Smoke shows the world through Lanni's eyes. I LOVED the change in perspective for this world

I really enjoyed Heart of Smoke! This story was so easy to get immersed into! It captured my attention from the very beginning and kept me guessing throughout! I thought the author did an amazing job describing the details of this dystopian world, it was very easy imagine and understand. And although this is only book one and there’s still a lot more story to come, I feel the characters are so well written I’ve become attached to some of them already! I can’t wait to find out what happens next i ...more

This book was great fun to read! I found it to be a really good book, quite compelling, and difficult to put down.
I do love books with lots of action, which this one certainly had! Although set in a world that this author has used before, the world of Girl of Glass, anyone new to this world will have no problem either reading or enjoying this book, and this new series. I really loved returning to that world, yet seeing it from a completely different angle.
I do not hesitate to recommend this boo

A grim tale of survival which displays the
horrible conditions that the characters must
deal with daily.
The adventures they endure in their desperate
bid to escape their circumstances are harrowing.
Make sure you're settled in comfortably for a
good read.
Enjoy !!

Found it to be a bit slow in the beginning, the world building was well written. Got into the story more once found new characters come into play and the end left me wanting to know more. Interested in the next book for sure! Need to know what happens with Lanni, Walsh and also Alec!

This was just not what I was expecting at all. I couldn't get connected with the characters and I couldn't follow the plot well.
