We Set the Dark on Fire by Tehlor Kay Mejia is the first book in the We Set the Dark on Fire duology.
It was my first book by this author and I really, really liked it.

We Set the Dark on Fire is about Daniela Vargas who has been attending the Medio School for Girls. This is the school where genteel young women get trained for one of two roles in there polarized society. A graduate has learned to run her husband's household or to raise his children, both will live in luxury. Daniela is the best student, but her future depends on nobody finding out who she really is and that her papers are false. Her parents sacrificed almost everything to acquire fake identification papers so Dani can attend the school and get a better life for herself.

Despite some surprises Dani seems in the clear on her graduation night. But she isn't prepared for all the tough choices she has to make, especially when she is asked to spy for the resistance group who fights for equality in Medio. Will Dani cling and keep fighting for the life her parents made possible or will she give up everything her parents fought for and fight with the resistance for a free Medio…….. and a chance at forbidden love?

I really loved the story and the writing is very good. I had expected a little more romance, but I didn't mind. The title really suits the book and the series. Can't wait for the second book to find out how it continues.
