  1. The New Dark by Lorraine Thomson is a book I requested from NetGalley and the review is voluntary I found this an interesting read with mutants that are treated poorly, but at the same time they raid and kill villages This is about a girl that survives a raid and is looking for her boyfriend and her brother, they got separated after the raid The girl befriends a mutant and he helps her It is interesting, it got slow in a couple of places but immediately picked back up Enjoyed it Love the cover


  2. Actual rating 3.4 Story After Mutants raid Amat and take Sorrels little brother and her friend and love David with them, Sorrel starts to search for them, only to find people who call themselves the free people There she learns that not all mutants are bad and not all people are nice and good Even if sometimes I knew what would happen, I still found the story to be entertaining and I can t wait to read the second book Characters I liked the main character Sorrel, because next to her being smart [...]


  3. I ve been given an ARC by Bastei Entertainment via NetGalley in exchange for an honest opinion.This is embarrassing as it s the first ARC I ve got from NetGalley that did not really float my boat.Hell I can guess there is always a first time to everything So honestly here I liked the concept, I liked that it made me think about who s right and who s wrong in general BUT I did not like the main characters I did not dislike them either but I had difficulties to really walk in their shoes and I ll [...]


  4. They came thundering through her village, killing, kidnapping and destroying all that remained Mutants, a product of a post apocalyptic world Somehow Sorrel survived and escaped, a girl now alone in a hostile world berating herself for her failure to save her family, for feeling fear and for surviving the monsters her peaceful village was no match for.Sorrel is now determined to somehow find and rescue her baby brother and hopefully the boy she loves When she is rescued by a fanatical religious [...]


  5. Mini review I received this E ARC via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review DNF I was really looking forward to reading this It sounded right up my alley Unfortunately it didn t work for me The beginning totally turned me off And I just couldn t get back into it I do still recommend.


  6. I received an ARC from Netgalley for a fair reviewIn a post modern society, Sorrel barely escapes after her village is raided by mutants She finds that young brother Eli and beloved David were captured by the band of mutants and finds herself in a dangerous pursuit to get them back As she progresses on her journey she learns about the world outside of her village and the dangers that it holds Everything she thinks she knows about the before could actually be real and she learns that not all mut [...]


  7. Ich muss gestehen am Anfang hatte ich wirklich so Schwierigkeiten mit diesem Buch Allerdings ist es etwa ab der H lfte so richtig spannend geworden Einstein hat mir am besten gefallen er ist irgendwie der Hammer Jetzt muss ich eigentlich wissen wie es weitergeht und ich werde mir auf jeden Fall das n chste Band auch noch holen Der Schreibstift war eigentlich ganz angenehm aber wie gesagt anfangs auch ein bisschen holprig Ich glaube ich musste mich erst mal an diese neue Welt gew hnen.



  8. I m not even sure where to begin I didn t hate it I didn t love it, or even really like it I wasn t disappointed I m not angry I just feel a lot of towards this book.WARNING This book contains themes of slavery, oppression, racism, sexual assault, and prejudices against disabilities To name a few.I understand that this book was trying to point out the wrongness of all of these issues I do get that, but it just fell so flat to me If you are going to take on such issues as these, maybe take than [...]


  9. There was so much that went into this novel I honestly think it was one of the best novels I have read in a while It had sadness, despair, hope, a hint of romance, revulsion, friendship it had a little of everything And while in the beginning I was wondering if the book had any redeemable qualities, I kept going and it was definitely worth it Now I have to wait for the next one Wonderful book I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.


  10. Thank you, Netgalley and publishers, for an advanced e book copy of this story All opinions are still my own and are not influenced in any way.The New Dark by Lorraine Thomson is about a dystopian sci fi book about a girl named Sorrel whose town gets raided by mutants She barely escapes, but is now on an adventure to find her little brother and childhood crush Along the way, there are many dangers Will Sorrel ever find David and Eli This started and ended strangely It dives right in, and you sor [...]


  11. 4 stars ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoy this book I loved the post apocalyptic story line, Sorrel firceness and courage, David s feelings and how Lorraine Thomson managed to show us that good people does not only come in human form.This is a book I highly recomend and can t wait to read the following ones.


  12. Check out my blog for reviews and bookish stuff natysbookshelf.wordpress I have received this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I had to battle through this book to get it finished It s 221 pages long, but to me it felt like it would never be over I wanted to give this book the fairest chance possible, but it didn t work too well.The New Dark tells the story of Sorrel, a girl living in a post apocalyptic settlement of Amat, where there is no electrical energy, no currency, no [...]


  13. I loved the post apocalyptic story line in this book The world is destroyed by fire and brimstone before the events of The New Dark take place, and the time before is simply referred to as Before, which the main character learned about in stories from her grandmother Speaking of the main character, Sorrel, that s right Sorrel, is totally amazing She s a fighter, stubborn, and has a lot of common sense I wish I could ve seen of her in Amat before the mutant attack And can we talk about that weir [...]


  14. I was on the fence after I read The New Dark One one hand, I thought that the basic storyline for the book was fantastic A post apocalyptic world where mutants were common That caught my attention from the get go But, I found that I had issues following the storyline at the same time There was not enough background given about what happened Before , how the mutants came to be and what Sorrel s birthmark means When I finished The New Dark, I was at odds at what rating to give it I settled on a 3 [...]


  15. I love fantasy, and on the whole, I love sci fi as well, so this YA book should have been a winning cocktail, angst and all In the end, though, despite some interesting comments on mutants and society, I wasn t completely hooked.Similarly to Michelle Kenney s great Book of Fire, a post apocalyptic novel about people living wild in the forest facing off against a civilised and invariably slightly evil post apocalyptic society, The New Dark is about Sorrel, a girl from Amat, a community that is a [...]

  19. Das Buch ist keine bahnbrechende Dystopie.Aber eine nette Unterhaltung f r kleines Geld 4,99 als eBook In einer dunklen Welt ist Liebe die einzige Rettung Keine Schulen, keine Superm rkte, kein Internet eine globale Katastrophe hat die Zivilisation vernichtet.Klappentext F r die 16 j hrige Sorrel gibt es nur ihre Familie, ihr Dorf und einige unglaubliche Geschichten aus der Zeit Davor Eines Tages greifen Mutanten das Dorf an und metzeln fast alle Bewohner nieder Sorrels kleiner Bruder Eli und ih [...]

  21. The New Dark is a new dystopian series centered around our main character, Sorrel We are very briefly introduced to her and her village, where she lives with her young brother Eli and her boyfriend David The story begins with her village being completely destroyed by invading mutants.Honestly, this book was just confusing and distasteful The whole novel has this sense of hopelessness and depression I felt like the author threw in a bunch of shocking events just because There was no real rhyme or [...]

  23. Spannende Dystopie mit kleinen MakelnDas Cover ist sehr sch n und hat mich sehr gereizt, mir das Buch genauer anzusehen Die Story dahinter versprach auch so einiges und auch die Protagonisten waren einem teilweise auf Anhieb sympathisch Der Lesefluss ist sehr gut, da der Schreibstil einen wirklich mit sich tr gt und dadurch die Seiten nur so dahinfliegen.Dennoch muss ich sagen, dass mich das Buch nicht g nzlich berzeugt hat Es hat ein paar Makel hier und da inhaltlich gesehen wirkt es ein zweima [...]


  24. I received this arc from netgalley in exchange for an honest review So this book half so much promise but just fell short for me Sorrell sorry if I butchered the name was very two dementional for me I could not relate to her at all which is very important for me Even if I hate a character, I connect with their personality on some level, which makes books great for me But it wasn t the case with this book I loves the idea about a dystopian society with mutants evolved humans but THEY WERE NOT EXP [...]


  25. DNF at 53 pagesIGGER WARNING SEXUAL ABUSEThis book has a great premise, but I personally didn t like the way it was executed and it triggered a trauma, so I decided not to finish it.The writing was okay ish, the worldbuilding was lacking and the pace was just off fast when I wanted it to be slow and slow when I wanted it to speed up.I will say the sexual abuse was minimal touching, looking, attempts at kissing But it still brought up my trauma, I m afraid Books should have trigger warnings, in m [...]


  26. I received an advanced copy of The New Dark through Netgalley for an honest review of this book.SPOILERS.Everything about this book confused me and jarred me The concept for this book hooked me at once, mutants and post apocalyptic elements sound great The world itself was underdeveloped not explaining to the reader how the world came to be as it was created confusion We begin the book with a possible romantic interest story and within moments the entire village is dead without warning After thi [...]


  27. 3.5 StarsSorrel and her village of Amat are attacked by a group of people called mutants Her mother is killed, but her little brother and the boy she likes are taken by the mutants Sorrel then tries to go after them to rescue them.While this book was interesting, and the writing was good, there was somethings that I thought were missing For one thing there really wasn t any background information What caused their world to what it is today There were some vague references of the past, but nothin [...]
