Fire & Flood is about Tella. Her brother is dying, and only she can save him. She gets an invitation to the Brimstone Bleeds, a game where the winner can get the Cure, something to cure all illness. She plays through the first two rounds, with help from some allies.
I think if the author had a different intro, I might have liked this book better. It made me almost not read it, but I'm glad I did. This book is a lot like the Hunger Games, but with little animals to help the characters along. I think that people who enjoyed the Hunger Games will love this book.
