Book #38 Read in 2013
Arclight by Josin McQuien (YA)
Arclight tells a tale of people trying to escape the dark so that the Fade (parasitic creatures) do not get them. Marina is the first person to come back from the Fade and her fellow teenagers do not really know what to make of her. One Fade breaks into their compound and wants Marina to leave with him. He tells her that she is still connected to the Fade and Marina wants to go to fill in the missing gaps of her time outside of the compound. But will what she finds out be a good thing?
This book had good action to it. The characters were interesting and well developed. There was humor in it as well as some teenage romance. Marina was a great protagonist--tough, intelligent and independent. This book will keep readers engaged the entire time. I enjoyed it.
I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program, in exchange for a review.
