This review may suffer from my delay in writing it. I know what this sounds like but this is another 5-star book. Alight is the follow up of Alive by Scott Sigler. I can’t say enough about this book series. As I write this I’m checking goodreads to see when I read the third novel. I can’t believe I haven’t read the third book yet! This is frustrating because I had my next book to read already lined up, but I loved the first two books in the series SO much.
The storyline is original. Right there is something that is far too rare now. You are immediately invested in the characters. This is YA and I do find myself really enjoying these novels as a whole. I’m not aiming to find them or anything. They seem to find me and on the whole, I really enjoy them. The story in Alight is fast paced and keeps you coming back for more. When you have to put this book down it is disappointing and you can’t wait to come back to it. The story has twist and turns. There are love triangles. There are baddies that are mysterious. So far its kind of like reading a LOST series.
Alight is 448 pages, but it moves incredibly fast. If you liked the first book, Alive, you will love the follow-up. If you haven’t read Alive yet, go back and read my review of that and then go read the book!
