By Amanda Marin
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Flicker to Fire (Crimson Sash Book 3) by Amanda Marin. It is a story that pulled me in from the beginning and I was hooked. I have loved reading this series since the first book. I love the characters of Neve Hall and Micah Ward. They are both brave, strong, and have a fierce determination that the Nation’s human rights abuses do not go unpunished. Neve and Micah are characters that you can’t help but root for them to succeed against the Nation. They stand up for those who seek freedom and escape. They also have a love for one another that is undeniable. What does the future hold for Neve, Micah, and the New Republic? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages wondering what was going to happen next. It has both heartbreaking and heartwarming moments. I found my emotions going up and down the entire time that I was reading the book. I enjoyed reading about the additional characters that each have their part to play in the story. The author does a wonderful job of making both the storyline and the characters come alive. I felt like I was right there with them. Don’t miss out on an exciting and entertaining story that I didn’t want to put down until I had read the final page. I highly recommend reading it. It is the third book in a series and to fully understand all that transpires it is best to read the stories in order.

Flicker to Fire is the third book in the Crimson Sash series by Amanda Marin. It is an original futuristic, dystopian, YA fantasy- with sci-fi elements, action, adventure, drama, intrigue, friendship, romance, politics, violence, social justice messages, human rights issues, emotion, and lots more.
This book follows on from the first two, with a bridging storyline and many recurring characters- so I really recommend reading the first two books before starting on this one, to get the best possible reading experience of this story.
I have followed the series from the beginning and have been eagerly awaiting the release of this book to continue the adventure. So much has happened along the course of these three books- so I couldn’t help but get caught up in everything that transpired here and what the characters were going through. Amanda Marin certainly knows how to spin a riveting tale and held me enthralled the whole way through.
I don’t want to reveal any of the plot, past or present- just in case you haven’t read any of the books yet, as I really don’t want to give anything away that may spoil the story for you- except to say that if you love dystopian, YA, or future fantasy- then you probably won’t want to miss out on reading this book/series.
I wonder what Ms. Marin has planned for us next?

Thank you, Amanda Marin!

I enjoyed this book. This is the third book in this series which can be read as a stand alone but I highly recommend reading all of them from the beginning. This is my favorite yet in this series. This is a well developed story that has characters that pulled me into the story right from the first chapter. This is an engaging story that I read in one sitting. I had no issues connecting to the characters as they brought the story to life. Neve and Micah are back in this story. Their story is full of hope and love. It does get a little dark in a few spots but the twists and turns kept me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what they would do next. There is a lot they go through in this story so I highly recommend reading it just to see. They are great characters that make a great story. This was a great rainy day read and I highly recommend it.

Beyond the broken wall, a fire has begun to burn …

Outside the refugee center in Kébec Village, the border wall separating the New Republic from the Nation continues to crumble. On one side, Neve Hall and Micah Ward are Sans Murs operatives, documenting cases of the Nation’s human rights violations as escapees arrive. On the other, Isla Pryce has begun a ruthless mission to purge the Nation of Sufferers who, like Micah, have been unfaithful to their vows.

Then she arrives: Blythe Thatcher, a mysterious young woman on the run from Isla’s vicious Inquisition Board. In Blythe, Neve sees a way to help Sans Murs further its cause—and rid the Nation of its callous Suffering system once and for all. But when the Nation uncovers their plan, the struggle that started as a flicker quickly turns to fire, and only Neve and Micah can extinguish the flame.

Love Gaia: The Diary Directive by TL Clark – Review by Faith Jackson

Love Gaia: The Diary DirectiveLove Gaia: The Diary Directive by T.L. Clark
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed reading this because it gives some idea of how our future generations will react to the right now in the future. Ahora, one of the main characters and her schoolmates, must learn savage experiences. Living a protected life, their history is appalling. The doctor and her inmates were put through an ordeal but it was a need.
The weight of authority is weighing down on them. They must remember “Truth. Admiration. Resilience” as you read through this rousing and harrowing tale of destruction, endurance, and ambition.
This is a book of determination and endurance. I love this because it teaches a great story which everybody should read and want to be a part of. A haunting yet harrowing story which is a page turner, great world building in a unique time period, easy to read, unpredictable, the characters are great, the story is original, informative and entertaining! Take the time to read this and you won’t be disappointed!

Love Gaia: The Diary Directive by TL Clark

Love Gaia: The Diary Directive by TL Clark is a young adult/ dystopian read about hope and survival. I found myself lost in the pages and couldn’t stop reading till the end. I will say there was some areas I had a hard time with but that didn’t stop me from reading. My emotions were all over the place and my heart ached at times. This story is about Aroha and her friends, harsh lessons are learned and they learn not to make the same mistake twice. Find out what happens next in this absolute must read I just want to add I love the cover. I can’t wait to see what this Author brings us next.

This is my first book by this author and i thought it was an interesting one. It was well written and had a completely different feel than anything I have read recently. It is set in a post-apocalyptic world after most of mankind have been wiped out. This is not for the faint of heart because it is raw and emotional and thought provoking. Definitely worth the read if that is your thing and you need a different book to take over your weekend!
Happy reading!

Love Gaia

A very neat dystopian Young Adult book based on the post-apocalyptic future, where the entire man kind has been wiped out, it is very thought provoking and an amazing story. Set in the future world, the story moves back and forth between the youth reading their harsh history lessons through the diary of Dr. Rachel, one of the survivors of the apocalypse. Aroha, a young woman reaching adulthood lives a peaceful life in an almost perfect world, an idealistic community where people believe in high values – Honesty, respect and fortitude. Aroha’s teacher walks them through a brutal history lesson about the founders of the community and the struggle they went through to form this society. She reads out a dairy of one Dr. Rachel, who is one of the founding members of this community. Dr. Rachel was one of the survivors who was kept underground for years together after the apocalypse which happened around the year 2069. Dr. Rachel loses everything, but she is determined to fight back for her freedom. The dairy talks in depth about Dr. Rachel’s struggle and her vision on the basis of which, the society of Aroha is formed. The book is indeed very though provoking and very unique book. It is a very short book, and very easy to read, do not miss this one!

Love Gaia: The Diary Directive by TL Clark was a captivating read. The point of views switching from past to present was uniquely done. I appreciated it in the YA dystopia setting so much. I enjoyed Ahora and her friends, they were so naive and innocent. The topics covered really hit close to home but it was still an uplifting read.
