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.

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!

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.

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."

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.

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.

As a life-time reader you go through a great number of books, even from a very early age. Over the years you start to develop unique tastes and cravings that not every author can provide. You also learn many common threads (some people call them tropes or clichés) that the vast majority of authors repeat. And then... then you have books like this one, that surpass your every expectation.

Set in a (sort of) post-apocalyptic setting in the United States of America, J.E. Plemons has crafted one of those rare treats, a novel that defies (and defines) an entire genre. Right from the start the author is able to sink their hooks into you and never let go for the entire wild ride. I found myself reading well into the twilight hours turning page after page, I couldn't put it down.

Arena and her twin brother, Gabe, are fascinating characters that feel like real people. Their struggles in this fictional world are breath-taking and haunting; I had to physically remind myself to breath sometimes. I could not help but get heavily invested in these characters and their strangely familiar, yet alien world.

The future depicted here is both simultaneously terrifying, yet beautiful in its own way. The author has obviously done their research on American history and is familiar with that old adage of "Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it". The story also plays with fate, destiny, and heritage, asking us to think about who we really are, and where we choose to go. Is this set in stone? Can it be changed?

They say you can feel an author's passion in their works and I felt it here in spades. J.E. Plemons felt very strongly about this book and everything inside it.
