Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody

Book beginning:

I peek from behind the tattered velvet curtains at the chattering audience, their mouths full of candied pineapple and kettle corn.

56%:

He grabs my hand and twirls me around quicker than Blister’s top, and I’m spinning too fast to remember to be sad. At one point he dips me so low that my hair brushes the floor. He makes quite the show of waltzing around the dance floor.

      It’s called the “burning city” because smoke envelops the Gomorrah festival, and once upon a time it was burned to the ground but it did not die. Instead it keeps burning, keeps moving, keeps growing. The smoke forever surrounds Gomorrah even though it no longer burns. 🙂
