In the dawn of The Rebirth Period, a new species of humans dominates the Earth.
In their second year of life, they experience the Luminescence and awaken to a mystical ability. Except one. Her name is Rayne.
In a society whose values and manners are as refined as the language they speak, her peers mock her because she has no higher ability. In the early hours of her 17th birthday, she experiences a night which will change this.
As her new reality brings adventure and peril, Rayne is desperate to learn the purpose of her power. Rejected by her Colony, she must hide the truth of what is happening to her. Though she finds friends from unexpected sources, Rayne finds herself hated and even more of an outcast when she’s involved in an accident which turns deadly. As her world unravels, everything she thought she knew about the Luminescence and society is changed, and she must uncover the truth on her own.
There’s little I love more than the chance to binge a series so when I saw two books in the Rayne Trilogy up on NetGalley, I couldn’t resist. I’m not sure how I feel about the covers, but the story itself hooked me from the first chapter. The world building was really fantastic and unlike anything I had read before. I’m already excited to dive into book two!
Rayne’s journey isn’t an easy one, but you’ll find yourself rooting for her throughout. At first she only has to deal with not having an ability like everyone else in her society, but things go from bad to worse pretty quickly.
I loved the concept of a new type of human living here on Earth in the future, and think everything came together really nicely.
Now, on to book two!
