Review From User :
Okay, so it's officially been a week since In the Afterlight was released, and I must admit, it took me a little longer than I anticipated to finish... but oh, god, when I finished it...
It was a little emotional. Not because of anything that happened in the end necessarily (this is going to be a spoiler-free review for those who haven't finished), but just because IT'S OVER and that makes me sad on so many levels that I can't even fully express my desolation.
Only rarely in my life has a book actually made me feel emotions for every freaking thing the main character felt... and I mean Every. Freaking. Thing.
God, I actually just laid down on my bed with the book on my chest with a tears leaking out of my eyes when I finished the last page because that is how attached I got to the main characters.
I swear to God. If you haven't read the series yet, (first of all if you haven't read the series yet, gtfo this page because you're gonna spoil yourself but first read this) you should just know... this series will fuck with your feels. It will make you stupidly happy and ridiculously sad and angsty and giddy and all the emotions on the emotional rainbow in between. If you cannot deal with your emotions being fucked with, don't read this series. But if you want something that has a plot and a purpose and the best goddamn character development arc ever, READ IT.
I am both scared and excited for Passenger...
Alex Bracken, you are a genius.
Ruby can’t look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government’s attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. With them is a prisoner: Clancy Gray, son of the president, and one of the few people Ruby has encountered with abilities like hers.
Expand text… Only Ruby has any power over him, and just one slip could lead to Clancy wreaking havoc on their minds.
They are armed only with a volatile secret: proof of a government conspiracy to cover up the real cause of IAAN, the disease that has killed most of America’s children and left Ruby and others like her with powers the government will kill to keep contained. But internal strife may destroy their only chance to free the “rehabilitation camps” housing thousands of other Psi kids.
Meanwhile, reunited with Liam, the boy she would-and did-sacrifice everything for to keep alive, Ruby must face the painful repercussions of having tampered with his memories of her. She turns to Cole, his older brother, to provide the intense training she knows she will need to take down Gray and the government. But Cole has demons of his own, and one fatal mistake may be the spark that sets the world on fire.
