About the author

Sara Raasch has known she was destined for bookish things since the age of five, when her friends had a lemonade stand and she tagged along to sell her hand-drawn picture books too. Not much has changed since then — her friends still cock concerned eyebrows when she attempts to draw things and her enthusiasm for the written word still drives her to extreme measures. Her debut YA fantasy, SNOW LIKE ASHES, came out October 14, 2014 from Balzer + Bray, and the sequel, ICE LIKE FIRE, comes out October 13, 2015. Neither features her hand-drawn pictures.

Like Lu, his life has been very definitively split into before and after: before he watched his uncle and cousin burn to death for heresy, and after he realized the dangerous fanaticism that runs his country.

Ben—with the help of his personal guard, Jakes—spends his days testing exactly where the boundaries are in the Argridian Church while hoping no one notices that he doesn’t believe in it anymore. Before his uncle and cousin were killed, they and Ben were part of a Church-ordained group that studied Grace Loray’s botanical magic—but the revolution brought fear and scrutiny until all magic was forbidden. How can this be? Something that was once ordained by the Pious God can now taint a soul?

As Ben watches the Church condemn and burn people for something he used to love, he struggles to find a way to bring reason back into his country—and heretic might just be a title he has to take on to do that.
