A pulse-pounding thrill ride, where a teen girl must participate in a breathtaking race to save her brother's life - and her own.

Time is slipping away. . . .

Tella Holloway is losing it. Her brother is sick, and when a dozen doctors can't determine what's wrong, her parents decide to move to the middle of nowhere for the fresh air. She's lost her friends, her parents are driving her crazy, her brother isdying - and she's helpless to change anything.

Until she receives mysterious instructions on how to become a Contender in the Brimstone Bleed. It's an epic race across jungle, desert, ocean, and mountain that could win her the prize she desperately desires: the Cure for her brother's illness. But all the Contenders are after the Cure for people they love, and there's no guarantee that Tella (or any of them) will survive the race.

The jungle is terrifying, the clock is ticking, and Tella knows she can't trust the allies she makes. And one big question emerges: Why have so many fallen sick in the first place?

Victoria Scott's breathtaking novel grabs readers by the throat and doesn't let go.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Fire & Flood:"Great for readers needing a fix in between Hunger Games movie releases." -Kirkus"Tella is an especially strong and likable character, which makes this gripping adventure all the more enjoyable." -Booklist"Tella's voice is feminine, smart, and sassy. Importantly, although male-female chemistry is definitely present, the emotional drive of the novel doesn't rely on romance. Family, camaraderie, and Tella's bond with her furry Pandora companion matter just as much in getting her through the first part of her life-and-death race." -Publishers Weekly"Scott captures the essence of what it means to sacrifice one's self for a loved one. She does a magnificent job of developing each character and developing their backstories gradually, instead of all at once. This keeps the story interesting and virtually impossible to put down." -VOYA
