The Battle Ground Series has been near and dear to my heart since I read the first book. It’s been quite a while since I stayed with a series and read the books as they came out. Rachel Churcher is an extraordinary writer and she’s created these characters that I’ve come to know and love.
Finding Fire is a wrap up of the lose ends left in the precious books. It covers how different characters got to the spots they did, and where they are headed to next. Without spoiling, I definitely shed a few tears.
Please read these books in order. If you read Finding Fire, you’ll spoil the entire series for yourself and be lost as well. Do yourself a favor and commit to reading this series. The way Rachel Churcher weaves these characters’ lives together is just top notch writing.
I think the bonus material of Rachel Chrucher‘s process while writing this series was such a neat addition. It just added to how special this series is.
Thank you to Rachel Churcher for the review copy and chance to honestly review this book on publication day. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio.
She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. She has renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends – but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction.
Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.
