    Luminosity (Raven Chronicles #1)


My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight. I was immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution. At the age of twelve, I had my first true vision, earning my raven’s wings. And when I turned seventeen, one of my visions came true. Things haven’t been the same since.

The Institution depends on me to keep the City safe from our enemy, the Dreamcatchers, but I’m finding it harder to do while keeping a secret from everyone, including my best friend Gabe. It is a secret that could put us all in danger. A secret that could kill me and everyone close to me.

But the enemy has been coming to me in my dreams, and I think I’m falling in love with him. He says they’re coming. He says they’re angry. And I think I’ve already helped them win.

Dystopia is one of my favorite genres. Luminosity by Stephanie Thomas is a fantastic YA Si-if dystopian. Thomas created an amazing world with Seers, Keepers, Watchers, Dreamcatchers, and humans. All the characters are wonderful: Bea ( Beatrice) is the main character and I loved her strong heroine character so much; Gabe and Echo are the two guys in her life. Gabe is her best friend. Echo is the guy that visits her in dreams.

Bea is a Seer. Seers only purpose in life are to protect humans and the city from the Dreamcatchers. Bea and Gabe have been raised in the institution for this purpose. Echo is a Dreamcatcher and Bea's enemy, but when Echo starts coming to Bea in her dreams, she’s not sure about anything anymore—what she’s been taught by the Keepers, or the feelings she has for Echo. Both Gabe and Echo are great guys, and with Luminosity being the first book in the Raven Chronicles, I can't wait to see how this will turn out for Bea.

Luminosity is a new take on dystopia. Stephanie Thomas gave me an amazing storyline with Seers and Dreamcatchers and a beautiful romance that I have to find out what's going to happen with Gabe and Echo, and where this cliffhanger with Bea, Gabe, and Echo is going to take them in Evanescence, the sequel. I recommend Luminosity as a refreshing, new twist in dystopian. It’s a must read!

Stephanie Thomas has been writing ever since she could put letters together to form words. When she was a small child, she would present her mother and father with self-made newspapers filled up with make believe stories and pictures. Her love for writing followed her all throughout her schooling, where she entered and won writing contests of all sorts. Stephanie decided to become an English teacher and completed her B.A. at The Pennsylvania State University. While teaching, she later went on to get her Master’s in writing from The Johns Hopkins University. She completed her very first manuscript during her graduate studies, and by the end of the program, she had completed two more.

Stephanie is quick to tell anyone that she’s a born and raised Philadelphian, and her heart will always belong there. She moved to Baltimore with her husband, and they’ve been living there for the last five years with their doggie, Sailor, and their rabbit, Buns (aka “T Sizzle).
