Luminosity Review

Published: November 2012
Publisher: Entangled Teen

My name is Beatrice. When I was born, I was blessed with the Sight. I was immediately removed from my parents and enrolled in the Institution. At the age of twelve, I had my first true vision, earning my raven’s wings. And when I turned seventeen, one of my visions came true. Things haven’t been the same since.

The Institution depends on me to keep the City safe from our enemy, the Dreamcatchers, but I’m finding it harder to do while keeping a secret from everyone, including my best friend Gabe. It is a secret that could put us all in danger. A secret that could kill me and everyone close to me.

But the enemy has been coming to me in my dreams, and I think I’m falling in love with him. He says they’re coming. He says they’re angry. And I think I’ve already helped them win.

Our Thoughts....

Tell me about the plot... 

After a war that almost destroy the planet, the Seers are back and they protect the city and it's Citizens. That's how they world now works, the Seers live separeted from the Citizens in the Institution and they must keep the Dreamcatchers away and prevent them from kiling all the Citizens.

Beatrice, Bea, is probably the best of her class, her vision are clear and especific and they become true. But the Institution keeps a lot of secrets, and most Seers aren't allowed to know. 
Bea needs to understand what's going on inside the Institution in order to save those she cares about. 
But The Keeper, the leader of the Seers, and her Raven are watching, always Watching her every move, and maybe... The Keeper isn't very happy with what she's seeing.
Female Main Character

Bea is a very intriguing character. At first, she's like the rest of them, used t living inside the Institution and watching the City through tinted windows. But suddenly her Visions start becoming true and she starts having Dreams of a blonde boy named Echo. The problem is, Echo is a Dreamcatcher and she likes him. After meeting Echo, Bea starts having doubts about all the things they were taught to believe. 

Bea is a strong character. She fights for her friends and t make sur they're safe but with all the secrets she doesn't know who to trust.
What about the hotties of the book?

Echo and Gabe...

Echo is calmed and collected. He's mysterious. He's the blonde Dreamcatcher that wants to save his people from a pest that's killing them.  Echo tries to guide Bea, he wants her help but he also knows a lot of things she doesn't.
Gabe is Bea's best friends. They've known each other since they were little, and have always been there for each other. But now tha Bea has been keeping secrets from him, he's not exactly happy.

What was the best part?

I love reading about the ins and out of the Institution and Dreamcatchers. To see how much control the Institution had over all of the Seers and Citizens.

What you didn’t like about the book?

I think they were some things that were very predictable, not just for this book but for the future... we'll have to wait and see. 

Anything else I should know about this?

Yes! This is the first book in the Raven Chronicles. And the ending, yeah it makes you wanna have the second book right now. 

I'm really looking foward to the rest of the story and learning what happens to all this lovelies characters.
