Blackout

REVIEW Blackout í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Er On the other side of the Frontier they find America is not what they expected and instead they are thrown into a shocking and deeply personal contest that threatens to destroy their love When the chance comes to escape back into the Dark Zone it may already be too late. I received an ARC of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review Powerful and engaging Blackout takes dystopia to a new level and gives the readers a story reminiscent of Kiera Cass s The Selection but with blood This is one new series to watch out forImagine a day without electricity No lights No gadgets No machines No electronics No heat Unthinkable right Welcome to Phoenix Troublefield s life Except it s a thousand times worse because he s been living in darkness ALL HIS LIFE And no daylight either because the solar flare that caused the worldwide Blackout sixty seven years ago also left the sky covered with jet black clouds plunging the world into perpetual darkness Life basically sucks in the Dark Zone so what do you do Here s what You surviveAnd that s what I like best about the main character Phoenix He s a survivor He s not a character you get to like at first sight He s angry and rough but he does what he needs to survive And he s damn good at it He doesn t only provide for his own family but for his girlfriend s too Speaking of Star I think she s one hell of a liability for Phoenix She s too soft and doesn t have the sense of self preservation needed to survive in the Dark Zone I don t think she could ve survived without PhoenixBut wait til you see them on the other side of the Frontier The Carnival changed these characters into something I love the character development Phoenix meets new people and I think it helped change the way he sees things Star s change is astounding The kind and timid girl transformed into an aggressive player who will do what it takes to win The Carnival and provide electricity for her familyThe other characters are worth mentioning too Elektra and Tinder are actually my favorite characters although they re totally opposites Elektra is feisty and smart and cool while I admire Tinder s innocence and sincerityI also liked the world building The Dark Zone is as grim as it gets while in the other side of the Frontier people are practically wasting electricity I like this contrast between the two settings and how the characters acted in both I also think The Carnival is a very uniue contest to be in Honestly when I read that the chosen DZs will compete in a game I thought Oh no not another Hunger Games Good thing it s very different from THG but still a really good dystopian taleThe twists and turns are also unexpected and will put you on the edge of your seats The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger too But it s not a cliffhanger that will frustrate you but one that will carry you on until the next book Practically screaming for book two here

CHARACTERS Blackout

REVIEW Blackout í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Region known as the Dark ZoneSixteen year old Phoenix Troublefield endures the dark with his girlfriend Star Windsong When America announces that it will trade electricity for immigrants Phoenix and Star sacrifice themselves for the power that might save her younger broth. It truly says something about a book when despite all the hectic things going on in your life your busy schedule work kids writing whatever it may be you make time for the novel You invest in it and savour itI read this in less than three days which always means I enjoyed the book A book that is read in that time for me is good And not just good but addictive I want to know I can t leave it aloneI even read this book while I was eating dinner That s how much it hooked meThe concept of Blackout isn t really new but the details were uniue The whole dystopia end of the world YA type novel isn t anything we haven t seen before But I m a sucker for a good one And this book is like the Hunger Games meets a very soft non alien infested Pitch Black It has hints of other stories I ve read and films I ve seen that focus on the post apocalyptic society the injustice the conspiracies the dictatorship that is only just hidden by a we re in this together bullsht smoke screen This novel is no different And yet it isI loved itThe characters were undeniably some of the best I ve read in a while And to make a change the POV was in the head of a male named Phoenix Now when I first read the description I nearly scoffed Phoenix Troublefield Are you kidding me But in the first few chapters I began to understand the odd names Star Phoenix Blaze Wick All the names of the DZ s aka the Dead Zone inhabitants who are on the other side of the enormous wall known as the Frontier that separates them from the easies who have all the power are names that represent light warmth Everything they don t have Which is kind of sad in a way And it made me appreciate their names and meanings even Phoenix is tough strong and very male I liked how he was portrayed But his weakness was Star and that just made him admirable and likeable He has a strong sense of family though he uestions his place as a Troublefield until he eventually leaves to go to the US on the other side of the Frontier I liked how he did it for Star For love She wanted to get electricity so her brother Wick would have heat and hopefully recover from his illness The Easies offer electricity for one young DZ in the home to come across the Frontier and join the Carnival It isn t clear what the Carnival is until they go to the other side Worst part is they re separated when this happens so you truly feel the anxiety of Phoenix s mental state as he fears for her and wonders where she is and if she s okayThen they get to the other side and discover that the Carnival is like some kind of twisted dating game show where they the DZ s have to win the hearts of four spoiled a hole kids from prominent United States families Two boys two girls It shattered my heart as both Phoenix and Star sat side by side painfully absorbing this shtbomb the bstards have just dropped on themFrom then on it s like The Hunger Games with all the schedules and faking things pretending to be happy and smiling for the camera But with a twist Phoenix plays the bad boy and their profile pages are online and they update for all the internet users to see Like a social network A TV dating game show on the web It s clever I also loved the idea of the phones they all had with the pop up schedules It just felt so realistic I could imagine the future being like thatAs for characters besides Phoenix there were many to like Elektra being one of them She s a shadow DZ s that keeps to themselves are basically the strong elite of the DZ s and are feared by those who aren t them She turns out to be a complex character She s tough but not confrontational and doesn t try to make a point of her strength or abilities You just know it and you know not to mess with her The scene where they get a medical exam and Phoenix says that she has several hairline fractures on her legs and severe burns on her back and he tries to ask her about it she just brushes it off I like that about her and admired her after that She doesn t want people feeling sorry for her despite her tough life She s worked hard and earned it and that s all she sees about it Good for herTinder is a cute kid and a softie Phoenix abhors his weakness at first but then you see him start to treat Tinder like a little brother It s a nice subtle relationship they have I love the contrast and their banter was always funny to readBlaze is supposed to be the bad guy but I didn t see him that way He and Phoenix end up being rivals which wasn t a surprise but they re both doing it for similar reasons They want people they love to have electricity To have power and live in warmth Blaze is tough and strong but his fear of losing out on the prize aka the girl called Hazel who they re both playing to win the heart of causes him to act irrationally and that doesn t end well for him I felt a little sad for himStar She s Star Not my favourite character Oddly my least favourite She has a loving heart and warmth about her but she seemed easily swayed and didn t hold a strong sense of who she is of who she and Phoenix are to each other I understood her jealousy at times but I just thought she reacted like an idiot She was unfair to him and the way she hid so much from him pretending to play Wesley when instead she goes for Bing the pervy dufus without telling Phoenix just annoyed me I like a girl who tells the truth because it s right Not hide it because she thinks she s protecting him He s a grown man and a tough one at that he can handle it Phoenix may have been just as jealous but he was mentally strong enough to know that the Carnival was just a game A dangerous one And he knew they needed to win no matter the cost Otherwise bad sht would happen Though we don t know what exactly that means until the end And it s horribleThey use the rejects those that don t win the competition as guinea pigs to try to find a cure for this epidemic that is turning the infected blind It was an unpleasant discovery to say the least But I m so intrigued to know The ending left it with many uestions unanswered and I m desperate to read book two I m sure it will be even better than this oneI rate this book 5 out of 5 simply because I couldn t find fault with it Love the writing loved the characters the scenery the plot EverythingThank you for letting me read this AwesomesauceReviewed for Bit N Book Promoters web facebook twitter
