Hunger games meets Handmaid's Tale.....two other books I loved. This up and coming author displays incredible, raw talent in this young-adult genre thriller. Meet Emma: hostile, rude, independent survivalist....who stuggles to find her compassionate, human side following a life of tremendous struggle. Her dog-eat dog philosophy along with the wall shes constructed around her heart and home have kept her alive longer than most. But when needy people come to her door one day, something inside her complels her to help. Her decision starts off a chain reaction that leads her into a world she didn't know existed and jumps stats her heart in ways she never thought possible. The story is a fast read, I couldn't put it down. The characters are realistic and compelling. Brown brilliantly creates a world full of danger, fear, love and new beginnings. Can't wait for the next one. If you loved hunger Games, look no further...enjoy this one! You won't be sorry.
Loved this book. If your looking a fast paced, easy to read, page turner and love the supernatural, look no further. Brown has an fabulous ability to weave pop culture, current issues and true history into the backdrop of her supernatural world. The result is a very authentic, believable plot, which says a lot considering how far-out-there this story is! Great characters, original story, well written.
The Light of the World is entertaining and will leave you wanting more. Buy it, you're in for a treat!
