It was a very interesting short story that I would like to see Mr. Lavanway turn into a full length novel. I could see him fleshing out the details of the scary state this world will be in in his futuristic setting. And it would be nice to see how the underground characters try to fight for the freedom they once heard of.
I probably would have given it four stars for that reason, but it doesn't deserve to be dinged because I wanted more. I recommend it in that respect!
The question before you now, is still a choice between Good or Evil, but includes what you will do, and where you will stand, and when. Will you stand on principle no matter what; will you trust in Almighty God to rescue you and those you love? It's a trick question. Here's another: Will God save a people who have had it in their power to save themselves, but chose not to act? "It is better late than never", but "Now" may indeed be late. Read Ilyan Lavanway's Sevenfold and make your choice.
