The PJV is on FIRE today! In honor of Alexandra Bracken’s wonderful series, The Darkest Minds.
At the PJV we are big fans of Alexandra Bracken’s The Darkest Minds series. If you like Young Adult Dystopian, you can’t go wrong with Bracken’s series. You have this crazy world where kids have developed super powers and to combat this, the government has rounded them all up and separated them by their powers. The ones they can control, they try to re-educate them, the ones that are too powerful are killed off. It is a very dark series and has all kinds of action and adventure, political intrigue a smidge of hopeful romance…and all packaged in a tight plot with writing that just pops off the page. Have I sold it to you yet?

In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken
ABOUT IN THE AFTERLIGHT
Ruby can’t look back. Fractured by an unbearable loss, she and the kids who survived the government’s attack on Los Angeles travel north to regroup. Only Ruby can keep their highly dangerous prisoner in check. But with Clancy Gray, there’s no guarantee you’re fully in control, and everything comes with a price.
When the Children’s League disbands, Ruby rises up as a leader and forms an unlikely allegiance with Liam’s brother, Cole, who has a volatile secret of his own. There are still thousands of other Psi kids suffering in government “rehabilitation camps” all over the country. Freeing them–revealing the governments unspeakable abuses in the process–is the mission Ruby has claimed since her own escape from Thurmond, the worst camp in the country.
But not everyone is supportive of the plan Ruby and Cole craft to free the camps. As tensions rise, competing ideals threaten the mission to uncover the cause of IANN, the disease that killed most of America’s children and left Ruby and others with powers the government will kill to keep contained. With the fate of a generation in their hands, there is no room for error. One wrong move could be the spark that sets the world on fire.

This New eBook Novella connects the last two novels in The Darkest Minds trilogy.
Sam didn’t think things could get worse at Thurmand rehabilitation camp. Then the Reds arrive. Everyone assumed the kids with firepower had been killed years ago. Instead they were taken away, brainwashed, and returned as terrifyingly effective guards. To her horror, Sam recognizes one of them: Lucas, the one spark of light in Sam’s dark childhood.
Lucas has a deadly secret–he beat the brutal training that turned his fellow Reds into mindless drones. When Sam defends herself against an attack by a vile PSF guard and faces a harrowing punishment, Lucas must risk his everything to save her.
