Blog Tour: An Uncommon Blue by R.C. Hancock

Book Description:

Bruno's never worried about his caste. He lives in the best neighborhood, attends the best school, and is free to choose from the best professions. Until today.

When an accidental reaction changes the color of his fire, he finds himself facing a life of slums and prejudice he never knew existed. Now an outcast, Bruno has to decide just how far he's willing to go to get his future back.

Discover another world where the color of your fire determines everything - your life, your choices, your destiny. Fast-paces and full of action, this thriller is bound to hook teens and adults from the very first page.


Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a nice, quick read - well, it was quick because I enjoyed it so much that I had a hard time putting it down. :) I enjoyed how the relationship between Bruno and his new-found friends developed and it was interesting to go along on the journey with him as he very quickly learned that life was not all unicorns and rainbows.  I do wish that there had been more background given. I finished the book really wishing that I knew more about the fires and how the class system was put into place. I'm hoping that the author will go into more detail about that in the next book. All in all, I will definitely recommend this book to others and I can't wait until the next one comes out.

About the author:

RC (Really Cool) Hancock began his writing career with a story about a dead cat which his second grade teacher thought was brilliant. Convincing others of his literary genius has taken longer than expected, but along the road he has acquired a lovely wife, four entertaining ankle-biters (who, thankfully, look more like their mother), and a degree from BYU in Recreational Management & Youth Leadership (which means he’s really good at having fun.) An Uncommon Blue is his first novel.
