The Lovereading4Kids comment
October 2016 Book of the Month Absolutely thrilling! This is the second in the truly wonderful ‘Broken Trilogy’ and is just as captivating and if possible, even more gripping than the first. This world must be entered through Broken Sky, it may be the 1940’s, but it’s nearly two thousand years after The Cataclysm, war and atomic weapons are banned, yet one man is determined to take over the world. We are launched straight back into action, the prologue sees former Peacefighter Amity on trial for murder and sentenced to a prison camp, after President Gunnison’s Harmony regime steamrollered over the Central States. L.A. Weatherly sends you backwards and forwards in time, feeding information, building fear, never allowing you to settle. I felt alert and constantly aware, ready, waiting for the next adrenaline shot. Disbelief settled in an uncomfortable pit in my stomach as Amity battled to survive the Harmony 5 camp. Darkness Follows is full of clever, original, thought provoking writing, this is one addictive trilogy and I will be impatiently stalking the final instalment, Black Moon. ~ Liz Robinson
Teens love to read and so in addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read the first title in the Broken Trilogy, Broken Sky. You can read their full reviews here.
- Jodi Coffman, age 14 - 'Broken Sky was one of the best books I have read in a long time.'
- Humaira Kauser, age 17 - 'This book is one to look out for. Broken Sky is going to be one of the hottest YA books of 2016!'
- Amelia Corrick-Gough, age 14 - 'This book was so good! The ideas behind this world were very creative, and I particularly liked the ideas of peacefighters, those who take to the skies to fight another plane, keeping the peace.'
- Edel Waugh - 'This was an interesting world created around astrological signs and how the world is grouped depending on them. It was an interesting and enjoyable plot and Amity was an inspiring female lead character.'
- Eloise Mae Clarkson, age 14 - 'This is a book I would definitely recommend to a friend. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would rate it five out of five stars.'
- Izzy Read, age 15 - 'A decisive tale of the oncoming of war- ironically set in a “perfect” world, where war is illegal...'
Darkness Follows by L. A. Weatherly
Welcome to Harmony 5: a secure prison camp where the rebellious and the Discordant are broken. Amity is their newest inmate. The rules are simple here: obedience or death.
