My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I find myself a little speechless as I have just finished “The Last Keeper of the Light” by Nikki Broadwell. This intense dystopian novel is about Sandal, only a child when the end of days begins, and her life long struggle for survival. Sandal and her people know the grid has gone down but the why is always on her mind. Many times in this book, I see direct correlations to current events in 2018. Nikki Broadwell has woven a beautifully dark tale that rings all too true in parts of the story. Her ability to blend facts with fantasy is wonderful and almost prophetic of a future we may actually be facing. This isn’t a high fantasy filled with creatures that don’t exist, so it’s even scarier for me since the world she laid out is eerily possible. It is a fantasy after all, so some bits you need to keep an open mind about. I’m normally not one to read apocalyptic novels, but the description of this one really hooked me and kept me fascinated until the very end. I wasn’t sure how this book would end but I can tell you I was very surprised. Her vision for this story was truly compelling and even if the ending left me a little out of sorts, I can appreciate how Nikki Broadwell came to it. So, I give “The Last Keeper of the Light” five stars!
