Review 'Ignite' by Danielle Rogland
In the ruins of dystopian London, the Empire rules through fear and fire.

“Everyone knew about ‘The Flames’ and how much trouble they had caused the Empire. They were the only rebel group anyone knew of that had lasted longer than a few months without getting caught, leaving candles behind whenever they snatched somebody out of the Empire’s grasp. To get involved with people like them is stupid. So stupid.”

Ever since her parents were murdered by the empire’s agents, Jacks has been living on the street as a pickpocket trying to keep away from trouble. When she accidentally witnesses the rebel group ‘The Flames’ in the middle of an operation she is unwillingly swept up into their world, and has to decide if she’s going to go back to looking after herself or join the rebellion and help them fight for the people of London Ruins.

She knows that getting involved was stupid, but does she really have a choice?

My Review:

Ever since I read the Hunger Games, I’ve been a huge fan of dystopian books. So when I received an invitation to read and review ‘Ignite’ by Danielle Rogland I Immediately said yes. Especially after I saw that beautiful cover. That cover just makes you want to grab this book, and don’t stop reading till the end.

In ‘Ignite’ we travel to the ruins of New London. New London is ruled by an evil emperor called Donavan. There is only one remaining rebel group that still remains, ‘The Flames’. One day Jacks, a homeless girl accidently finds herself in the middle of an operation of the Flames and before she knows it, she is in way over her head.

Although my head was filled with wedding planning stuff, I was totally swept into this book after I first started reading it. Which is kind of impressive, since there isn’t much non-wedding-related-stuff that can grab my attention at the moment. ‘Ignite’ is full of suspenseful moments, and I found myself easily visioning the world of New London. From the moment I started reading, I just didn’t want to stop reading ‘Ignite’. It definitely kept me on the edge of my seat.

‘Ignite’ is written through several point of views. Since I have a lot of trouble keeping characters apart, especially if there are many different characters, I was a little afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep up with this book. Fortunately this book was written in a way, that made me keep all the characters apart easily. And I enjoyed reading every single page.

If you’re looking for a nice dystopian read, ‘Ignite’ is definitely one for you. I loved every single page of this book and I’m super happy I was able to read this one.
