Remnants: Season of Fire

#2: Remnants: Season of Fire   -     By: Lisa T. Bergren

Remnants: Season of Fire By: Lisa T. Bergren

It’s officially the release day! So head over to your favorite book dealer and check out Remnants: Season of Fire!

As the second book in the Remnants Series, Season of Fire has a bit of a slow start but from there picks up tremendously. This book is full of adventures and twists with every turn of the page. Season of Fire starts where Season of Wonder left on as we return to the journey of our favorite characters. What I love about this book, is that although we thought we knew these characters already, we have learned more about them and another level of the depth within these characters. Bergren has done amazing in crafting these characters and sharing their hopes, fears and struggles.

I love that this is also a Christian book and that theme echoes through ever page of the story. It isn’t watered down so that people will like it more, the artists shares who she is and her beliefs through this story. I cannot wait for book three! In a time where so many poorly written books with no morals stock the shelves it is great to see such a fun dystopian book.

Firstborn

Firstborn By: Lorie Ann Grover

Firstborn is a story you have not read before, the concept of a civilization that does not allow female firstborns and the only way they will live is to be declared male. Firstborn is an interesting take on the Young Adult Dystopian genre. Tia, born a female, is living the life of a male, preparing to do her part to help guard her city. She will be the first declared male to do so. As Tia struggles to fit in and do the job necessary she comes to realize that she can’t do what she knows to be right and at the same time is fighting getting old as a female declared male.

This was an interesting story that I had high hopes for, I really struggled through a good part of it because I felt a lot of things weren’t explained and sometimes completely ignored. Other times I felt the story was dragging on one end and rushing on the other. Some events that were thought to be significant go on like it was just a moment and not that important at all. I hope that a lot is clarified in the next book.

Anyone with a love for dystopian must read this book! Bergren has taken a genre that has flooded our book shelves and given it a whole new look. The idea of a dystopian book from a Christian perspective is fascinating and seeing how Bergren wove her story so beautifully with characters you will fall in love with, epic-battles that will have you on the edge of your seat this book is not one to be missed! Sword fights, mystery, romance and a calling that cannot be ignored! I am so excited to see what will happen next!

Luminary By: @KristaMcGeeYA

Thalli is back in the second book in the Anomaly trilogy and the Scientists are still on her trail. After finding their way to the surface Thalli, Berk, Rhen and John find themselves on a 900 mile trek across what used to be the United States. After long days filled with dust and attacks from animals they had only seen on screens the group finally makes it to the town of New Hope, where Thalli learns the truth of what happened to the world. With so many questions Thalli is not sure what to believe. With violence from the nearby town of Athens threatening New Hope, Thalli volunteers to go on a peace seeking mission to find a way for the towns to work together. From everything she has heard of about Athens she expects to find a town of ruthless people but instead finds Prince Alex who is kind and a city in need of help. With the stories of the Designer that John has told her Thalli finds herself searching for answers and the truth but her time is running short because the State is closing in on the group.

Krista McGee never fails to impress and continues the Anomaly Trilogy  with a captivating story of hope! This story will surprise you from beginning to end, with twists and turns around every corner and new characters you will love. McGee keeps you guessing all the way through. This trilogy will be the next big dystopian book! The only negative is having to wait until July for the conclusion! I absolutely loved this book!

Anomaly By: Krista McGee

Anomaly By: Krista McGee

The world has been destroyed by nuclear war, with the planet  left uninhabitable a group of ten scientists have created a new world underground, a society of engineered humans. They have each been created with a specific purpose and task to perform within the underground world. However, there are no emotions, no relationships, they complete their task and aim to be as efficient as possible.

Thalli is different, she asks questions, has a curiosity about the world that is looked down by others. For seventeen years she has managed to hide the fact that she is an anomaly, and now her life is in danger. Her days are numbered until the scientists are done using her as a test subject and decide that she will be annihilated. As she waits Thalli begins to hear stories about the Designer, someone who has a bigger plan for her life much bigger than she could have ever dreamed of.

If you are a fan of The Hunger Games, Divergent, Farenheit 451, and other dystopian books you must read Anomaly! McGee approaches the dystopian books from a Christian perspective.

Anamoly will glue you to each page until the very end, with strong characters you want to learn more about, you will identify with Thalli as she searches to learn more about the Designer and what the means for her life.  The only negative about this book is you will have to wait until next summer to read the second one.

This book is a must read for everyone’s reading list.
