The Tinderbox

The Tinderbox

The Tinderbox is an exhilarating young adult science fiction book by actor Lou Diamond Phillips.

Once the two worlds of Indira and Mano were one planet. But a schism broke them into two. Of course, being populated with humans, the two new worlds quickly devolved into mortal enemies of one another. The worlds have a common prophecy of reuniting when an Indiran Prince and a Manoan Princess fall in love. The Indirans believe the prophecy is only a myth. However, the King of Mano believes in it so much that he keeps his only daughter, Allegra, trapped in his palace.

With the world-building of Star Wars and the plot of a fairy tale, this book of two warring worlds definitely kept my interest. In fact, I read it a single day. While I would have appreciated a bit more backstory and personality in Princess Allegra, overall The Tinderbox is a rousing tale that teens and pre-teens will love. 4 stars!

Thanks to Aethon Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
