The Fire Children by Lauren M. Roy

     "Two children escape the darkness of their underground dwellings, to find adventure, magic and terrible danger await anyone who ventures above ground.
     Fifteen years have passed since Mother Sun last sent her children to walk the world. When the eclipse comes, the people retreat to the caverns beneath the Kaladim, passing the days in total darkness while the Fire Children explore their world. It's death to even look upon them, the stories say. 
     Despite the warnings, Yulla gives in to her curiosity and ventures to the surface. There she witnesses the Witch Women -- who rumors say worship dead Father Sea, rather than Mother Sun -- capturing one of the Children and hauling her away. Yulla isn't the only one who saw the kidnapping; Ember, the last of the Fire Children, reveals himself to Yulla and implores her to help. 
     Trapped up above and hunted by the witches and the desert wind, Yulla and Ember must find a way free his siblings and put a stop to the Witch Womens' plans, before they can use the Fire Children to bind Mother Sun herself."

I received this book from NetGalley for review.

I had a really hard time getting into this book. The writing was almost like second person, and I kept losing track of who was who.

I read the whole book, but again because of the writing, I just don't really remember anything that I read. The concept sounded interesting, but the world building was kind of weak, and the characters weren't interesting to me. 

There's not much I can say about the characters, other than what I've already said. 

This is a really short review, one of my shortest since I started blogging; I just don't have much else to say, and I really felt like posting this review anyways.
