Arclight by Josin L. McQuien

A harrowing sci-fi thriller that #1 New York Times bestselling author Pittacus Lore proclaimed "Powerful and gripping." This bold and astonishing novel about identity, unnerving connections, tortured romance, and facing our worst nightmares is made for fans of Veronica Roth, Stephen King, and Justin Cronin.
The Arclight is the last refuge in a post-apocalyptic world consumed by terrifying creatures called the Fade. No one crosses the wall of light that keeps the last human survivors safe. There's nothing else left and nowhere to go. Or so they thought, until Marina, a lone teenage girl, stumbles out of the Dark.
Marina doesn't remember who she is, where she came from, or how she survived. And the Fade want her back. When one of them infiltrates the compound and recognizes Marina, she begins to unlock secrets she didn't even know she had. Marina knows she's an outsider, but she'll do anything to protect those who saved her. Whether they want her help or not.

Josin L. McQuien’s Arclight would fit perfectly into our societies current love of dystopian novels and films; if you cant get enough of apocalyptic action and the mysterious unknown then this is the book for you. If you’re sick of the romantic side of things then this book is great for you, its light on romance and doesn’t go into the mushy details. McQuien's imagination runs against the grain for the typical werewolf, vampire, and zombie villains and goes for a refreshing twist by inventing her own creatures of the dark. If you want a book that is creatively intertwined with plot twists, characters, and a little bit of violence then this book is a must read.
