BORN AS TWINS RAISED AS ENEMIES BOUND BY DEATH

Synopsis

The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig

BORN AS TWINS RAISED AS ENEMIES BOUND BY DEATH Cass is born a few minutes after her brother, Zach. Both infants are perfect, but only one is a blessing; only one is an Alpha. The other child must be cast out. But with no discernible difference, other than their genders, their parents cannot tell which baby is tainted. Perfect twins. So rare, they are almost a myth. But sooner or later the Omega will slip up. It will eventually show its true self. The polluted cannot help themselves. Then its face can be branded. Then it can be sent away.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
