When Zach and I were born our parents must have counted and recounted: limbs, fingers, toes. The complete set. They would have been disbelieving - nobody dodged the split between Alpha and Omega. Nobody. Born as twins. Raised as enemies. One strong Alpha twin and one mutated Omega; the only thing they share is the moment of their death. The Omegas live in segregation, cast out by their families as soon as their mutation becomes clear. Forced to live apart, they are ruthlessly oppressed by their Alpha counterparts. The Alphas are the elite.

Once their weaker twin has been cast aside, they're free to live in privilege and safety, their Omega twin far from their thoughts. Cass and Zach are both perfect on the outside: no missing limbs, no visible Omega mutation. But Cass has a secret: one that Zach will stop at nothing to expose. The potential to change the world lies in both their hands. One will have to defeat the other to see their vision of the future come to pass, but if they're not careful both will die in the struggle for power.

Industry Reviews

`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
