In a world where the lower classes must endure ten years of forced service to unfairly disadvantaged, magically powered rulers, a teenage boy dreams of rebellion, his older sister yearns for love and knowledge, and a dangerous young aristocrat seeks to remake the world with his dark gifts. Bright Ruin is the final book in a trilogy, set in modern day England, heroes will lead a revolution, with the chance to either transform or destroy, the world.
Bright Ruin starts off where the previous book in the trilogy starts off, leaving no stone unturned as the trilogy comes to a stunning conclusion. Personally, I felt as though the world of this series was dark, not dark in the sense of horror, but of how closely it mimics the society that we live in (especially with the thought of corruption of those at the top of society and how it may affect everyone in society, especially those at the bottom). No character is safe as the end draws near, and their fates remain in the balance, as well as the rest of the world.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
