About the Author:

Francesca Haig grew up in Tasmania, gained her PhD from the University of Melbourne, and was a senior lecturer at the University of Chester. Her poetry has been published in literary journals and anthologies in both Australia and England, and her first collection of poetry, BODIES OF WATER, was published in 2006. In 2010 she was awarded a Hawthornden Fellowship. THE FIRE SERMON, her first novel, was published in 2015. She lives in London with her husband and son.

Review:

`The Map of Bones is a wonderful book - thrilling, emotionally engaging, booby-trapped with some incredibly inventive twists and turns and some excellent action sequences and, from beginning to end, it is intensely moving. Like its predecessor, this is a book that forces us to consider what it means to be human, and how important it is to respect the humanity in others. Francesca Haig's writing is exquisite, loaded with turns of phrase and lines of dialogue that are so perfect and so beautifully realised, it reminds us how powerful the written word can be. And, on top of all that, it is - along with The Fire Sermon - the most exciting and rewarding novel we have read in a very, very long time. You have got to read these books, they are storytelling at its absolute finest.' STARBURST.PRAISE FOR THE FIRE SERMON:`This book is a thought-provoking whirlwind of a story, with a fab lead character, grisly politics and brave adventure. I loved it!' Jessie Burton'A hell of a ride. I would recommend it to anyone I can, regardless of age' James Oswald`Set in a vividly realised world of elite Alphas and their `weaker' Omega twins, it holds a mirror up to our obsession with perfection' Guardian`Words like `masterpiece' and `instant classic' are cliche, but in the case of Francesca Haig's astounding THE FIRE SERMON, they're the only words to use' Starburst Magazine`This terrific set-up spools out into a high tension tale of mistrust and dependency, injustice and optimism, told with poetic intensity' Daily Mail`Haig's post-apocalyptic world is colorfully fleshed out, and the conclusion ask us to consider who, really, is the Other' Washington Post`With its well-built world, vivid characters and suspenseful plot, this book... is poised to become the next must-read hit.' Kirkus
