In the future, books are a distant memory. The written word
has been replaced by an ever-present stream of images known
as Verity. In the controlling dominion of the United Vales
of Fell, reading is obsolete and forbidden, and readers
themselves do not—cannot—exist.
But where others see images in the stream, teenager Noelle
Hartley sees words. She’s obsessed with what they mean,
where they came from, and why they found her.
Noelle’s been keeping her dangerous fixation with words a
secret, but on the night before her seventeenth birthday, a
rare interruption in the stream leads her to a mysterious
volume linked to an underworld of rebel book lovers known as
the Nine of the Rising. With the help of the Risers and the
beguiling boy Ledger, Noelle discovers that the words within
her are precious clues to the books of the earlier time—and
as a child of their bookless age, she might be the world’s
last hope of bringing them back.
BLOOD, INK & FIRE is a gripping, evocative tale that asks,
who would we be without books?
