Beacon

by Angela Brown

Tsunamis reduced the USA into a shell of itself, called The Fold. Surviving humans and vampires joined forces to form The Colony, where registered citizens do as they’re told.

They donate blood quarterly and dream of being chosen as Attendees for the Jubilee celebrations, that is, everyone except Macie Breen. With high school graduation near, she’s anxious to ditch the rules in hopes of starting a new life with Thane, an unregistered and also her best friend.

Her hopes fizzle when Macie is selected as an Attendee, forever registered. Any future with Thane…impossible. Being chosen comes with another unexpected price.

Truths about The Colony blaze into ashes and lies when she discovers the vampires haven’t kept their part of the bargain. Worst still, Macie’s life unravels as her stint in the city of Bliss forces her to face daunting truths about who, and what, she really is.

excerpt

 

Thane tapped the door. “Would it help if I said I didn’t see anything?”

 

“No!”

 

He snickered some more. I cringed. Embarrassment coursed through me, heating every inch of my skin.

 

“Would it help if I told you what I did see looked beautiful?”

 

I hesitated half a heartbeat. “Don’t lie to me!”

 

“It’s not a lie.” He didn’t laugh. His voice, his tone, quiet, honest.

 

I stared at the door and wanted to giggle myself. Flutters erupted in my belly.

The story starts out with Macie stating that she does not believe her mother and father are dead.  Macie’s parents have been missing, or dead according to the Colony, for eight years now.  This gives the reader a kind of quick snapshot into the society that Macie is living in here. This story starts off with Macie over sleeping and having to hurry to get to school and the Jubilee Assembly so she doesn’t get into trouble.  After getting ready Macie is on her way to school when she is further slowed down helping an elderly lady, and this gives the reader a first glimpse that maybe Macie is not a normal girl.  Macie gets knocked down by a boy who is unregistered, since he is described as unregistered due to his clothing and not being tattooed on his ear.  This further gives the reader an idea that this society that Macie is living in may have some problems.  The Colony that Macie is living in has registered and unregistered citizens.  Registered citizens get housing and jobs and other things to help their lives and in exchange they agree to give a gift of blood on a regular basis to the Vampire overlords.  The unregistered citizens do not want to give this gift of blood and as such do not have access to the luxuries, education and jobs that the registered citizens do.  Macie plans to stop being a registered citizen after she becomes eighteen and can receive her parents’ belongings, but something happens before she can get to that point. Macie is chosen to go to Bliss, and this is what happened to her parents right before they disappeared.

This book was really interesting and a very different way to do a paranormal story. While there is some romance in this, there is adventure as well.  I found it hard to put this book down.  I would read this book again.

I’m giving this book 5 fangs.
