It was foretold by the elders that those born on a prophesied day with crescent moon birthmarks would change the future at a time when our planet was on the edge of darkness. Taken away and trained until the time to act came, the Remnants were kept safe by the Knights of the Last Order to. Together they would try and save the world.
There is so much more to this story but any more would lead to spoilers and it is too good of a story to be spoiled. My brevity is more out of fear that I would blurt out everything that makes it awesome, when it’s really something you have to see for yourself. This futuristic fantasy story is told with a Christian message behind it leading us to a story you think you might have read before but ends up being an entirely new tale. The characters brought me in quickly and kept hold of me throughout the entire story. There were a few twists and turns I didn’t see coming that brought the story to another level. The relationship between Andriana and her knight brought into question so many avenues to be explored between the different characters that I hope will be answered in the next book.
Adriana is a great heroine, not whiny or annoying. The world of this story was written so well that at no point does it feel like the author had to stop the story to explain things. It is all explained through our heroin’s eyes.
This was my first Lisa Bergren novel and I was thoroughly entertained. This book could be classified in several different categories, fantasy, dystopian, and even post-apocalyptic. If you are a fan of The Hunger Games and Divergent this is one you will not want to miss. This is the first in the series and sets the stage for what could easily be up there with the newest NY Times bestsellers that have become so widely popular. I will be in line for the next in the series.
