Hi, everyone! I am back with another book review for y’all. So grab a cup of tea and get comfy.
I’ve teamed up with Booktasters again and they introduced me to Kristen Traganas’ The Light of Ives: Memories Remain. This being the first book in the series and I’m not quite sure when the next one will be coming out, but I’ll keep you all posted.
Let’s. Get. Reviewing.
Lucy is eager to leave Emerald Lake. She wants to live with the humans but is also afraid of leaving her friends and family behind. Is it worth it? Will the dark side of human existence scare Lucy away?
I’d like to start off this review by saying that I couldn’t put this book down. It kept me hooked, but I did find some sort of plot hole. The entire time I was confused because I wasn’t sure when the story took place. Was it set in the future or modern day? Maybe it’s just me but I couldn’t find anything indicating what sort of time period the Lucy and the other characters were living in.
Also, was Emerald Lake a separate planet or a city? I never understood that either.
Despite the plot holes, I found this book very interesting. The idea behind the lumenguards and the Indomites was interesting. But how can you tell a lumenguard from a human being?
There were a few things that I would’ve liked to know more about, but otherwise the writing was beautiful and kept me interested all the way through the book.
I would recommend this book for fans of any Neal Shusterman books such as Challenger Deep and Scythe.
Thank you to Booktasters and Kristen Traganas herself for contacting me and introducing me to this great book.
Thanks for reading everyone. I hope you all are doing well and reading some great books. Let me know in the comments what you’re currently reading. Also, if you have a book in need of reviewing you can contact me via Twitter or leave a comment with a link to your book. I’d love to read it.
