Teen Reviews: Brightly Burning


This book was absolutely brilliant – it was a mix of so many things; sci-fi, mystery, romance. It was a beautiful blend and had just the right amount of each element. Being set in a future of governmental evils and love interests who just can’t stay still, it reminded me much of Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray, but with considerably more mystery and less robots. I’d recommend this book to anyone who wants to try getting into more suspenseful genres while still imagining worlds outside of our own society. I personally loved the book. The characters were a breath of fresh air and the story made them feel so real. I wish I could go deeper, but I don’t want to spoil anything for future readers! My only advice is to read it – you will be far from disappointed.
