Disclaimer This book was sent to me by the publisher Harper Collins via Edelweiss for an honest review Opinion I cannot tell you guys how excited I was to receive an ARC copy of this book from EdelweissSO excited So when I started actually reading I realizedmaybe this isn’t exactly what I imagined it to be But naturally I kept readingAnd readingAndreadingSighThis was ALMOST my first DNF book of 2019 Daniela’s family sacrificed everything they had to give her a better life In a world where men are the hierarchy and are sold two wives to prosper and be happy there is a school for girls where such women are educated and molded As a Primera Daniela is made into a wife that is both strong and intelligent One that is cunning and to be used as the right hand for her future husband It is a life of calculated sentences practiced facial expressions and complete modesty and structure But when Daniela is forced into making a deal with a member of a dangerous rebel group in order to hide the past that could get her killed she begins to uestion the life that she has spent so many years striving for Should she do what is expected of her and stand with a man that is both cruel and devious or should she fight for her people to hopefully make a difference It took me almost 2 weeks to finish We Set the Dark on Fire which is practically UNHEARD OF for me What I was HOPING was going to be a creative and fresh YA story about the oppression of women in a world of men salivating on excessive power was a dreary story that barely held my attention and one that resembled other books a little too closely This is The Handmaid’s Tale set in the Latin Community and resembles current events that can either be closely similar or completely off base depending on your stance and view of the world I wanted this book to be innovative and a new outlook on themesissues that havecanare happening in the world But it didn’t uite feel like thatFor me this book didn’t touch on any feelings and issues that I didn’t already see or think about It seems like SO much of this book was a parallel version of The Handmaid’s Tale which is so spectacular and gut wrenching that I can’t imagine ANYONE wanting or even ATTEMPTING to try and replicate it But that is what this story feels like to me a less heart shattering YA version of a story that is and was so incredibly impactful As soon as I started reading I found I had a difficult time getting into the story and sticking with it My mind was wandering my eyelids were getting heavy and it took a good few chapters for the story to make me want to keep reading The turning point for me was when Dani leaves the Medio School for Girls and begins her new life as a married Primera Though I was hoping of this story was going to be held at the school because that is what the description lead me to believe and that after all is what grabbed my interest But that aside the story finally starts to “become something” when Dani is moved into her new home and given her wifely duties But as soon as I started to gain interest I found myself bored and skimming pages againIn this story that author uses a writing style where she has Dani reflect on her childhood or what it was like over the border I love flashbacks and moments from the present that will spark a memory for the character but how it was done here just wasn’t executed well At times It feels like the author has put too much emphasis on making the story detailed and creatively written Usually I am a HUGE advocate for a poetic way of words that describes everything so vividly but the exuberance of reflections and descriptions kept losing my interest There was TOO MUCH of this and it took away from the story and made me lose focus countless times Regarding the characters everything felt rather predictable Carmen became the chosen Segunda in Dani’s marriage which the reader will have easily saw coming Mateo was the typical villain with zero heart or even a glimmer of kindness in him which I found to be slightly unbelievable It made his character one dimensional and simplistic rather than a villain with layers and a backstory that molded him to be such a ruthless and cold soul Carmen started out as a character that could have really stolen the show with her charm and charisma but she was really put on the side and only made a love interest and the second wife of Mateo But where I really lost interest in this story was the bizarre way the author introduces the romance of this bookIt was to be simply put sudden and uncomfortable It didn’t flow smoothly it came out of such an unimportant conversation and encounter and was suddenly justthere WHAT Where was the hints that this could be a relationship The buildup The moments of fluttery nervousness and thoughts from our main character that this COULD be something she wants It just made ZERO sense and felt ridiculous This could have been a beautifully woven romance that was gentle and made strong by their shared bond But instead it came across feeling like some fleeting little fling with no substance At this point I just kept reading to get it over with This isn’t to say that the book is horrible that it has no direction and that the writing is impossible to get through Because it isn’t any of those things It just didn’t hold my interest and attention and I couldn’t connect with the characters or what they were really FEELING in these serious and scary situations I just wanted substance for this story I wanted to feel the anger agony anguish and sadness for these characters I wanted to be excited for rebellion understand every aspect of what they were fighting for and be yanked into the story with no yearning to come out Unfortunately We Set the Dark on Fire just wasn’t what I expected and what I was looking for

In this daring and romantic fantasy debut perfect for fans of The Handmaid’s Tale and Latinx authors Zoraida Córdova and Anna Marie McLe society wife in training Dani has a great awakening after being recruited by rebel spies and falling for her biggest rival At the Medio School for Girls distinguished young women are trained for one of two roles in their polarize. Really like the setup and appreciate the FF relationship and Latinx representation; the concept here has a lot of potential an arrogant straight man has two wives who fall in love with each other instead we love to see it Unfortunately I found the romance developed way too uickly and the rebellion to be handled in a flimsy manner the main character’s role was mostly just conveniently overhearing important information at the right time lol
