Luminary by Krista McGee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was so excited to read this book. I really enjoyed book one and so did my daughter!
I actually submitted a short story for a chance to win an autographed book and my submission won so it was even more exciting to read.
I gave this book a solid 4 stars, I really wanted to give it 5 star rating but I couldn’t help but feel as this one was a little too similar to The Hunger Games in certain parts.
Similarities to The Hunger Games:
love triangle-love triangle
Berk is the Peeta of this series with his accidents and love for Thalli.
The King of Athena is the President Snow of this series.
Don’t get me wrong, the series is great so far and I noticed much less redundancy than with book one but I just felt it was very similar to the HG series.
The scientists want to lure the remaining scientists that left the State back so that they can cure oxygen problem that threatens to kill them all.

I did enjoy the story and I look forward to the last book, Revolutionary. Despite a few instances where I felt that the story derived too much from The Hunger Games the story is still well worth the read.
