From Fire into Fire by Normandie Fischer ~ My Thoughts

From Fire into Fire

From Fire into Fire: The Beginning of the Story by Normandie Fischer
Series: Isaac's House Book 1
Kindle Edition, 148 pages
Published June 2nd 2016 by Sleepy Creek Press

From the author of Two from Isaac’s House comes the story behind the story.

Sixteen years after terrorists target Meira, she and her husband face their toughest task yet: telling their boy the truth.

Tony Rasad has spent most of his young life in Lebanon, the Arab-American son of a university professor. Beirut’s where he ought to be now, running around, playing on the beach with his best friend. Instead, he's stuck at this lake house in upstate New York, preparing to go to a prep school he’s certain to hate.

He's about to learn a secret that will change everything. His parents, the liars, have been living under a cover so deep they never even told their only son who he actually is.

Exposing their lies could cost them everything, including him.

My thoughts about From Fire into Fire ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First lines—'"Allabu Akbar!" The madman's cry flashed into memory, and Meira saw again the knife-wielder who proclaimed his god greater than all others. He'd pounced, his face so close to hers that his spittle had dripped down her cheek. But he'd missed his mark, and she, though scarred, had lived.'

I recently listened to Two from Isaac's House and I loved it. With this novella, we get a look at the story behind the story. From Fire into Fire explains what Tony's parents had to go through when he was a young boy and gives us a better understanding of how Tony ended up helping his cousin, doing spy business in the Middle East.

I like the direction that Normandie is taking her readers with this series and I look forward to reading more of the adventures of Rina and Tony. I also listened to Two from Isaac's House, which is the story that comes after From Fire into Fire. You can read my thoughts here.

She studied sculpture for several years in Perugia, Italy, before returning stateside to complete her degree with special honors in English.
