I was a little confused/annoyed at the beginning of the book where Shelby's narrating the events that took place between the last book and this one--there's so much, and it's so significant that I really wanted to be there experiencing it, not just having it recapped. Also, I didn't quite understand the change in her feelings toward Max from the end of the prologue to the beginning of the story. But Shelby specifically seemed to have mellowed quite a bit from what she had been in the first couple books, which I definitely appreciated. :) It was nice to see her starting to use her writing skill again as well.
All in all, I appreciated being left with some solid hope after all the darkness of the last two books. It still doesn't mean life will be easy, but there's some light on the horizon, which is a definite relief. :)
Content--violence, gunplay, and deaths; mentions of wounds, blood, and dead bodies; mentions of criminals being executed; mentions of cursing
• The writer's words painted clear pictures that helped me to visualize the scenes and the emotions of the characters. The author's writing style was concise vivid, and clear.
• The descriptions of locations and emotions were well done, easy to visualize, and to feel. I felt like I was a part of the scenes with Shelby, Max, Patrick, Bianca, Lanh, and Carter on their quest to find the Federal Government.
• Shelby's personality was rational again in this book of this series. She was likeable.
• There were many twists and turns to this plot, which kept my interest. There was lots of action and suspense. This book was not predictable.
• The pacing of the story was neither too slow nor too fast.
• There was a smooth, coherent flow to this book.
• This story had a satisfying ending fir this series.
• This was a clean read and I appreciated that.
• This was a Christian apocalyptic novel. Religion was a part of the characters' daily lives. No religious lectures.
Light of Dawn is the conclusion to The Remnant series, written by Vannetta Chapman. This series is a believable dystopian series that explores the collapse of society following a solar flare that takes out the power grid across the world.
It's your typical post-apocalyptic chaos you'd expect in dystopian fiction so why am I struggling with expressing my feelings?
I don't want to ruin this story for you and perhaps I'm saying too much. But, this book explores the idea of finding happiness in whatever situation that you're in. I appreciate that the author didn't tie everything up with a neat little bow and make everything right. I don't want to give spoilers but how many times do you read a book and everything is resolved and perfect and the characters find some semblance of happiness when the source of their conflict is resolved.What if things don't get better? What if they cannot? Shouldn't one strive to put their trust and happiness in God in spite of their circumstances?
These characters touched my heart. I felt their fears, their losses, and their love. I followed them through their darkest moments and watched them emerge with a stronger faith in God and love for one another.
I've just one big problem with this series and that is that I'm done with it. It's over. I don't want to say goodbye to Shelby, Max, and the rest of the remnant. I'm just not ready and I'm not sure if I ever will be.
A complimentary copy of this book was provided by Netgalley. I was not required to write a positive review, and have not been compensated for this. All opinions are my own.
Now I am ready to start the "What the Bishop Saw" series by Ms. Chapman. Love her style!
