What a series! What an incredible story! What a dynamic cast of characters!
The series was up to about book #6 when I stated reading it, with The Last – the first book. It was OK, but there was a subtle hook in the story and I picked up the second book, which was Anna’s story. And what a ride it has been, since then! The Light: As in the previous novels, this one has a powerful gripping narrative. A refugee convoy just east of Denver, Colorado, where a group of survivors who are full of hate and greed and guilt… where Lara leads them through an act of redemption that restores their sense of humanity. I had tears in my eyes, as they shed theirs.
There are beasts and demons throughout this series, but, but the true monsters are men and women who show what true evil is, and the amount of suffering they can cause, and the strength of character it takes to fight back.
The Light has epic battles, and there is the unleashing of mysterious supernatural forces that John Michael Grist has imagined. Yet there is, in reality, a science underlying it. You marvel, and you turn pages, and once again, MJG rocks your sense of reality with another breathtaking leap that will challenge you to keep up with a narrative flow that is, by times, more poetry than prose.
On the final pages of The Light, Amo – The Last Mayor in America – contemplates the words I used in the title. John Michael Grist has the talent to take that concept, and make you feel as if you have lived it.
