Review of "Fires of Change" by Sarah Lark

Twenty years after a group of German immigrants settled in New Zealand on South Island this second book in the series continues the story by focussing on their daughters. In New Zealand an uprising under the Maoris is making life on North Island dangerous. A mix of Christianity mixed with cultural identity is spread by a prophet and creates an explosive mix.

The author uses real historical facts to tell her story what in my opinion makes it worthwhile to read. As I have not read the first novel and there are many different characters in this novel it took me quite a while to fully get into the story.

There is quite some violence in the story so not suitable for too young a reader.
