Into Darkness, J.T. Geissinger
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I was a bit confused when I began this book – I’ve read all of them so far and its a great series, but it seemed an unfamiliar world. All became clear though once I realised we’d moved forward 25 years and the world had changed – big time! And not for the better…
Lumina is special, and she has to keep her differences hidden or risk a fate literally worse than death. The world is ruled by Sebastian Thorne, owner of the Phoenix Corporation. We see now how he links to the mysterious group where people are only numbers, and they are out to kill any and ultimately all Ikati. After the Flash they became scattered and Magnus – who is known as the Seeker – has made it his task to find and get together to safety as many as possible. When Lumina is in danger after an incident he rescues her, takes her to the others and she learns more about who she really is, and what part she needs to take.
Its another fantastic read, and it was great seeing how all the threats opened through the series gradually drew closed, pulling together all the different factions. The world is a dangerous place for their kind, though most humans don’t have it good either… and then Magnus and the group learn that time is running out for the Ikati. Its plunges him and Lumina into a dangerous, some would say foolhardy, recue attempt risking their own lives too – but its all or nothing, and neither can sit back and let thousands of their people die without trying.
Magnus and Lumina – wow – already connected via their sensual and erotic dreams, and yet in reality he veers from seeming to be attracted to being closed and cold. She’s torn, and confused but when they do get together its explosive – literally!!
Fantastic finish, really well written and its been a fantastic journey.
Stars: Five, a cracking finish to a fabulous series!
