I liked the world building—the slang, the glimmer and the glamour, the monsters and the winged. You’ll have to read the book to relish the setting. There’s also a lot of suspense and action. I enjoyed all the surprises Macie had in her path.
An incredible start to this YA dystopian series. The first thing that captured me was the phenomenal world building. What happened to the continent itself, the virus, and the supernatural aspects. A new culture rose with promises of a bright future, but there is corruption within. Everything is wrapped up so wonderfully in one grand picture.
Macie is a strong and likable heroine. She's had a hard life and the weight placed upon her gets heavier with each chapter. Never mind being a teenager just trying to figure out your life, hers becomes so much bigger than that but she doesn't crumble beneath the weight. Thane is the sweet best friend grown into something more. His own secrets are astounding. The whole cast of characters add to help create this fantastic world and story. A story that will take you places you least expect.
I highly recommend BEACON. It's my favorite book by Angela Brown yet!
What a ride! The poor heroine faces an endless stream of adventures during which she discovers the reality of the fake world in which she grew up, and learns who (or what?) she really is. I'm not a fast reader but I read the last third of this book in one night because the action wouldn't stop and I couldn't put it down. I didn't want it to stop.
First of a series, and I can't wait to find out more about this fascinating world. Very refreshing to find something deeper and more complex than your average paranormal. Great read.
Beacon is filled with action. There's never a boring moment in this book! So many elements are streamlined into this story and work so well with the world that the author has created. The world building is absolutely awe-inspiring. I enjoyed Macie so much. She was a great character that I loved reading about.
I can't wait to tune in for the next book in this series! Angela Brown has started her YA dystopian series in an explosive way with Beacon. I have no double that the rest of this series will be just as incredible!
