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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
