5 Stars Out Of 5
I loved this sci-fi trilogy
December 21, 2016
There was a nuclear war. The Scientists were the only people who survived it. They were sure emotions were the reason for it, so they carefully constructed their new world to be emotionless. Just productive. But Thalli is an anomaly. She FEELS. And if her secret is revealed she will be annihilated...
Typical Thalli: I know my malformation goes far beyond a sickness of the body. My mind is sick, my heart is sick. But I will never tell. Because, if I am perfectly honest, I like my sickness.
I loved "Anomaly!" Krista McGee is a brilliant author. The story world was well constructed, the plot twists in this book completely unpredictable (and numerous).That made the story so exciting. I just get used to one reality and then Thalli's world is turned inside out again. Both Thalli and Berk are characters I loved getting to know.
Generally, I don't read futuristic books, but this book proves that they can be great. I recommend this to all Christian teens and adults who want something that's out of this world, but still Christ-based.
Typical Thalli: I smile to myself as I realize I feel less and less a part of the State. That Thalli from the State is disappearing, being made into Thalli from New Hope.
Forty years ago there was a nuclear war. The ten scientists who were thought to be the only survivors have maintained an emotion-free world underground. Thalli is an anomaly. She was scheduled for annihilation, but with her friends she escaped. But is there any point? Is there any life above-ground and if there is, will the people be friendly?
Krista McGee is a wonderful author. I'm surprised again by the number of plot twists in her books. Another great thing: Thalli matures so much in "Luminary." She learns to trust the Designer whatever the situation.
One thing, though, I would love if Krista McGee changed is the amount of telling in the story. Instead of he was angry Id love to see his fists clenching, his eyes turning red, his feet stomping. But again, the plot twists make up for that and go beyond. I recommend this to any Christian reader and lover of science fiction. And if youre new to the genre, like me, you might just love it anyway.
Typical Thalli: I wish John were here. The Designer would listen to him. Or, at the very least, John would know what to do in the face of the Designers silence. I feel so very alone.
Thalli is held hostage by Loudin as he makes Kristie work on the oxygen in the State. As Thalli learns more and more about his dark plans to change the world in unstoppable ways, she knows they have to stop him. But how can they, when Loudin seems to have everything - absolutely everything - under control? And why is the Designer not doing anything?
"Revolutionary" is the last book in the Anomaly trilogy. This story is like the first two in that it has plot twists you would have never imagined and is written in a way that will keep you turning pages. It shows you that, even when you don't feel that God is near you, He is and He'll turn everything that seems to be going wrong into something beautiful.
Personally, I thought the ending could have been bigger, but that does not stop me from eagerly awaiting Krista McGee's next book.
Krista McGee has written the Anomaly trilogy as well as three other books: "First Date," "Starring Me" and "Right Where I Belong."
