enormous wall known as the Frontier that separates them from the 'easies' who have all the power are names that represent light warmth Everything they don't have Which is kind of sad in a way And it

EBOOK ´ ê S.G. Mark

Er On the other side of the Frontier they find America is not what they expected and instead they are thrown into a shocking and deeply personal contest that threatens to destroy their love When the chance comes to escape back into the Dark Zone it may already be too late I received Blackout from the author in exchange for an honest reviewBefore Blackout I hadn’t read a dystopian in uite a while Well I read The One in May but it’s one of the few I’ve read all year I’ve been reading so many contemporaries lately I’m not sure what I was expecting from Blackout but it wasn’t what I got It was so good though It has similarities to both The Hunger Games and The One but it’s also similar to something else that would be a spoiler if I said what it is There are reviews on Goodreads that give the whole thing away so if you really need to know go read one of those That’s a warning to be careful on Goodreads if you don’t want to knowSet sixty seven years after solar flare hit the Earth Blackout is narrated by Phoenix the male DZ as the citizens of the Dark Zone are called That surprised me as it seems like the obvious choice for a female YA author would be to write from the female DZ’s point of view I really like Phoenix though so I’m glad that Madeleine Henry went with him for the main character Seen only through Phoenix’s eyes Star is a weaker character and I don’t know if I like her that much Not much time is spent on their relationship at the beginning of the book Phoenix seems to believe he’s deeply in love with Star — and that she loves him too — but they seem to be together out of convenience to me There are only seven families — twenty four people in all — left in Dark DC and most of them are adults I hope Phoenix and Star don’t end up together at the end of the trilogy but if they do I can’t say I wasn’t warned in advanceRight now my pick for Phoenix would be Elektra After Phoenix Elektra is probably my favorite character They’re thrown together along with another boy named Tinder as roommates in America Most dystopians give their characters unusual names with no explanation Blackout actually gives that information DZs all have names that symbolize light and warmth — Flint Spark Wick Aura and Burn Elektra is a Shadow one of the mysterious elite DZs who are the best hunters and fighters and are rarely seen by the rest of the DZs She’s strong smart and a fast thinker but there are hints that her life as a Shadow is not easyI like Tinder too At first meeting he seems timid and weak He is physically weak — skinny with knobby knees — but I think there’s a uiet strength to him He stands up for himself when he needs to I think he will end up being an asset to Phoenix as the trilogy moves along I hope Phoenix learns to rely on Elektra and Tinder and to dwell less on what he thinks Star might be doingBlackout is pretty short but a lot happens in those 182 pages I hate being so vague but I really can’t talk about the plot without giving away spoilers The ending brings a lot of information all at once and of course it ends with a cliffhanger just as Phoenix is discovering what he and his companions are really in for It made me wish I already had the next book to read It’s not out yetmaybe soon?
