Library Journal Review

It's been years since the Doom: a mystical plague that not only killed much of society but released magic throughout the world. Technology and societies have failed, people are rebuilding and discovering how to live together despite their differences. Yet battles continue to rage and powerful gangs called Raiders and hunting zealots known as Purity Warriors make travel among populated areas difficult. However, Fallon Swift, a child ordained to be The One who would vanquish the darkness, knows her future begins on her 13th birthday. She will discover the reach of her powers and meet fairies, shifters, and other extraordinary creatures, as well as learn to fight and heal. Bringing back characters from the first book and adding others from the new generation, Roberts continues her series set in an extraordinary postapocalyptic future where magic and humans learn to coexist, and darkness and light continue the struggle. VERDICT The follow up to Year One takes a jump into the future, grabbing readers with epic world- and character-building.-Kristi Chadwick, Massachusetts Lib. Syst., Northampton © Copyright 2018.
