Surprising Technological Disaster Story


Though it seemed at first to be a pretty standard post-apocalyptic-type survival story with messianic leanings, Lightborn turned out to be much more complicated and interesting by the end. The writing went from terse and modern to delightfully trippy and chaotic in some segments. Xavier and Roksana were believable, well-developed main characters with a commendable sense of loyalty to their families. The large secondary cast was much less developed, but they did add to the story in their own ways. Lightborn technology seemed pretty implausible, but its workings were left vague enough that suspension of disbelief was not too difficult. All in all, Lightborn is a book that I'm very happy to have read.
