In the dystopian future of For Darkness Shows the Stars, a genetic experiment has devastated humanity. In the aftermath, a new class system placed anti-technology Luddites in absolute power over vast estates—and any survivors living there.
Elliot North is a dutiful Luddite and a dutiful daughter who runs her father’s estate. When the boy she loved, Kai, a servant, asked her to run away with him four years ago, she refused, although it broke her heart.
Now Kai is back. And while Elliot longs for a second chance with her first love, she knows it could mean betraying everything she’s been raised to believe is right.
But Elliot soon discovers her old friend carries a secret--one that could change their society . . . or bring it to its knees. And again, she's faced with a choice: cling to what she's been raised to believe, or cast her lot with the only boy she's ever loved, even if she's lost him forever.
Inspired by Jane Austen's Persuasion, For Darkness Shows the Stars is a breathtaking romance about opening your mind to the future and your heart to the one person you know can break it.
Took me long enough to review this book didnt it???
I think so too.
And I apologize.
BUT just because I took so long to write a review doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it :)
Actually, i more then enjoyed it. It was amazing!
I've been a wuss and have read every Jane Austen novel EXCEPT Persuasion, so I was really curious to read this novel and see how it compared
(I lied a little, I have read at least a couple chapters of Persuasion, so i know the gist of it and what it is about).
This is a great adaptation or inspired version of Persuasion. Diana writes with such fluidity and grace, its a beautiful read. The story line and plot is mind grabbing and exciting and the characters are interesting and creative.
I HIGHLY recommend you add this book to your "to read's" shelf!
