Heaven is closed, and the Apocalypse is at hand. The dead continue to walk the earth while the living face biblical plagues. Now that Clarke is gone, Micah’s dream of an ordinary life has never been further out of his reach. And as the antichrist’s grip on humanity tightens, Micah understands that he must embrace his legacy if he ever wants to see Clarke again.Vestige has been among the first dystopian YA book that I've read and ever since then I couldn't wait to see the whole picture of this story. Now Scion is out and I had a chance to read it. Luckily I can say that waiting payed off.
The first book in this series was fascinating for so many things. It's the first time that I've seen the apocalypse happening instead of just seeing the consequences of it. When people randomly started disappearing it was a sign that something bad is about to happen. Clark and Micah are now apart and both must fight to end all of this, to end the evil.
Firstly, I should say that some readers might have troubles with this book because it has a lot of connections with religion and the Bible itself. It depends from person to person I guess how they will experience everything that's going on in this book.
Secondly, this book was much darker from the previous one, which is something I really enjoyed and which was a perfect fit for the story. The situation at hand was really serious and dramatic and the picture of the whole environment helped in a way that it created the fitting atmosphere.
Lastly, both Micah and Clark were much different. They both seemed older and much more scared but still ready to fight and be brave. With help of the others Micah worked really hard and when the whole story got the full picture I must say I was really surprised as I didn't expect it. Only thing that I was missing here was the romance. You could feel that in both of them but I missed them together.
Rating: 4 stars.
Until the next time,
