Tell the Wind & Fire is about a young girl called Lucie who lives in a New York very different from the New York we know: the city is torn between two very different kinds of magic, and Lucie's own family was torn apart years ago by that conflict. Lucie wears magic rings and carries a burden of guilt she can't share with anyone. The light in her life is her sweetheart boyfriend Ethan, but it turns out Ethan has a secret too: a soulless doppelganger created by dark magic.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] magical thriller.” Gregory Maguire, New York Times bestselling author
“Intricate world-building, effective characterization, and an oppressed class fomenting revolution make this…a natural fit for Hunger Games fans.” School Library Journal
“With nods to Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities, this dark-fantasy-meets-romance will have readers hooked.” Horn Book
“Compelling similarities exist between the narrative and present-day events…making this an engrossing and relevant read.” Booklist
“Lucie is a dynamic and complex character, burdened by oppressive secrets from her past and yet fiery and fierce, hellbent on saving those she loves no matter the cost.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“Retellings of beloved classics are tricky, but here, Dickens’ overall plot and major characters translate effortlessly into this intriguingly imagined setting. Lucie and Ethan are more complex than their rather insipid Victorian prototypes, and Carwyn retains all the bad-boy fascination of his charismatic counterpart.” Kirkus Review
“Lisa Larsen’s sturdy narration engages listeners from its opening line: “It was the best of times until it was the worst of times’…Larsen’s aggressive delivery suits the ugliness of the political corruption and revenge that are at the heart of Brennan’s tale before redemption takes place. Those familiar with Dickens’ classic will admire what Brennan borrows from the original, but this love story with its magical world-building can be appreciated by anyone.” AudioFile
