Wake (City of Light – 1) By Sherry Rossman

Young Adult Christian – Science Fiction – Fantasy

Date Published: February 1, 2016

Serve the community. Obey the laws. Exist on anxiety pills. This is all Monet, a ward of her city, can hope for until she and her friend, Luke, find an old book that shows the history of mankind—a past that’s been hidden from them and all the citizens of Titus. As their curiosity takes them down a dangerous path, extraordinary events begin to occur, showing them God may exist and is reaching out to them through illegal art and a realm of paranormal activity. Monet and Luke find themselves at a crossroads: live within the safe, logical confines of Titus, or embrace the wild truth and risk death.

BookMy Review

5 stars

Monet lives in a world where there is no religion or art. The citizens of Titus all the do is obey the laws and take their pills. If you veer from this path and start believing in something besides the laws then you are a cult member and are taken away. But Monet and her friend Luke have a secret. Luke builds amazing status of angels and they are based on an old battered book they found.

This is not going to be a secret for long. The angels are being discovered and the more people that are learning about Monet’s secrets mean more people that are not following the laws. The truth has a way of coming out.

This sounds like many other dystopian stories out there the difference is how it is executed and this book stands definitely stands out. Monet had her mother taken away from her so she is aware of the game she plays with the book. It’s amazing how far some people will go trying to control people. I admit that I don’t know how I would live without all forms of art or religion, especially if I discovered some fragment of its existence at one time.

I love dystopian stories and really liked Wake. It is the first in a series so now I have to patiently wait until the next book comes out. Make sure you get this book today, you won’t be disappointed.

To purchase Wake make sure to check out Amazon and  Goodreads.
