Book Description

If your fate has already been chosen for you, would you change it? Fifteen-year-old Arena Power blindly accepts her destiny in a world filled with tragedy, chaos, and a lingering wickedness that will tempt every man's soul until the last days on Earth. Set in the United States in the year 2053, America, like most of the world, has undergone catastrophic earthquakes, famine, and an economic collapse, which has rendered the nation hopeless. It has turned to other nations, like Russia and China, to help restore what was once a world power. Unfortunately, the new America has grossly caused civil unrest that will eventually be the precursor to a much bigger war of biblical proportions.

Orphaned at the age of nine, Arena and her twin brother, Gabe, have learned to rely on each other through the toughest times. Not only do they share the same birthday and the tragic loss of their parents, they both have a birthmark on the back of their necks in the shape of a crucifix. This is only but a small sign of the destiny that will follow. On their fifteenth birthday, they receive a mystery letter and key from their estranged Uncle Finnegan. This key will unlock their fate, and it will be up to a priest, who has vowed to protect them since birth, to unfold the layers of their destiny-to undo the evil that has spoiled the world, and to help unleash God's wrath upon those who have turned from Him in the last days of history.

Last Light Falling weaves righteousness with evil, treachery with truth, and shows just how far the will of man can survive on faith alone. Arena and Gabriel's fate will determine that course of history for which has already been written. They were not born to save the world; they were chosen to prepare it for the final days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last Light Falling is a Rising Star June 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some books tell stories that stay with you, and become an allegory for parts of your life, this is one of those books you'll find yourself thinking back on with the courage and strength shown by the main character Arena. The year is 2053, and things just aren't the way they used to be. Post-Apocalyptic stories are becoming more and more popular these days, and this one will ultimately stand out as one of the best. It's a story of faith, love and survival that will leave you reeling at the end, without ever letting up on the pace from beginning to start.

"That moment when you finish a book, close the cover, and look around, realizing that the people around you have no idea you've just had a Significant Emotional Event at the hands of a paperback."

5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic read July 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
J.E. Plemons' "Last Light Falling: The Covenant" is a contemporary fiction novel about fifteen-year-old twins who have been destined to change the world. Other than the loss of their parents, Arena and Gabriel Power lead relatively normal lives with the same concern as other teens. When their fifteenth birthday arrives, they are most worried about high school starting soon. But they don't realize that they are to receive a letter and key that will send them on a journey toward their destiny, entailing preparing the world for its final days. I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. It has many elements that are in the dystopian YA books that are popular today, but it has a fresh feel to it. The two main characters work well as protagonists, and their unique personalities (one is sassy, one is geeky) make following them on their journey very engaging. The plot of the book starts at a moderate pace, but really gets going about a third of the way through the book. The writing in this book is top-notch -- descriptive, emotional, and compelling. I feel as though I felt everything Plemons wanted me to feel. Even his descriptions of day-to-day activities, such as sibling interactions, are spot-on. Overall, this is a darn good read that will make any fiction fan want more. Can't wait to read the next in the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely recommend this fast paced sci-fi read May 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I knew I would enjoy this fast paced sci-fi read when I saw the book cover and read the description.

The author gives readers an interesting plot- If you could, after finding out what lay in store- would you change your Fate?

Our main character, Arena, finds herself facing this thought in 2053. Planet Earth is not the same planet as it was 50 years previous. It has been taken to levels that were simply unthinkable in the early 2000’s.

With catastrophic events all but leveling Earth and her inhabitants, surviving through the day was an accomplishment not a given.

Arena is 15 when this story begins. She also has a twin brother, Gabe, who complements her character nicely. Their destiny unfolds with this story and while I refuse to give even one spoiler, I think the author really knocked the ball out of the park.

The attention to details and addition of certain things in the story made this a truly unforgettable read.

Fast paced sci-fi with just the right amount of suspense evenly distributed. There was not a single lag throughout this read.

Definitely recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A highly believable apocalyptic story! July 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Last Light Falling begins in 2053, with believable world conditions as they could exist at that time. The story also beings on the main characters fifteenth birthday, twins Arena and Gabe Powers, whose parents were killed in a tragic car crash six years previous. Although they are still trying to accept the passing of their parents, the story is told through the voice of Arena. Growing up, Arena’s Uncle Finnegan had taught Arena self-sufficiency, including the art of warfare and how to be invisible to the enemy. This is just the beginning of the unfolding of an incredible story. What I found so fascinating about this apocalyptic story is how real to life it was made to seem. The author's writing was amazing and included several events that must have taken some very extensive research. I know from writing books that this is the most time consuming part of writing a story. This book was written so well, that the realistic events stick in your mind long after you have finished reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Action-packed story July 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a well-written story that I have no trouble recommending. The author doesn't make you wait long to start the action. The book begins on the fifteenth birthday of Arena and her brother Gabe. They're twins but very different in personality. They've lost their parents and have been living with a foster family. This is the year, however that will change their lives completely.
The book is full of suspense and action as the author carefully unwraps the mystery and the destiny of the twins. Overall, this was an enjoyable read. For a fantasy book, it gives you a plate-full of hopelessness in an apocalyptic society with a side dish of faith and hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sure to be the next big series July 15, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Last Light Falling was a fast paced end of days book that was hard to put down. This book was full of unexpected twists and turns that kept me entertained throughout. Young Arena and her twin brother Gabe find out on their 15th birthday that they are meant for something big. I enjoyed watching as these two emotionally connected siblings struggle between good and evil to survive. Arena is a very powerful character and with the help of her gadget wielding brother can conquer. This book has left me wanting more and I will definitely be on the lookout for the second book in the series to come out.

More About the Author

Jay Plemons' life is nothing short of ordinary. From an aspiring chef, carpenter, educator, musician, husband, and father, nothing ever seems too busy when adding yet another hat into the mix as a fiction novelist. With a degree in music business, and a minor in English from Middle Tennessee State University, the aspirations to continue his journey in the arts, has followed Jay to write the Last Light Falling series, which has not only touched on some of his personal experiences, but has also helped him further explore the heightened convictions of faith. Though his first love is music, writing has profoundly changed the way he expresses himself to others, which has recently impacted his son to follow in those same emotional footsteps. When Jay isn't drumming, writing is his cure to life's distractions.

Jay's only philosophy is to enjoy whatever time you can whenever you can, with whoever you can, because the uncertainties that tomorrow may bring will have a profound impact on how you give your time today. If we could all just stop for a moment and enjoy the little things in life that make the big things worthwhile, our troubles would all seem inconsequential.

Raised in a fundamentally sound Christian home, Jay's quest for knowledge was under a jaded, but compassionate moral compass. But with all questions about life, there's never a good time for harsh scrutiny, but being a child of God, timing is everything. While scrutiny may come under experiences, it's our experiences that breeds humility, and that's what bridges our relationship with God. This is the true nature in which man may take several paths before realizing his chosen path was never meant to be in judgment, hidden in shame and guilt, or riddled with harm. We may not understand the world around us, but comprehending its vast secrets was never the true intentions of our being. We were called to serve one another and accept a gift greater than our minds can possibly fathom--love.
