Meridian by Josin L. McQuien

The electrifying sequel to Arclight, which Pittacus Lore called "powerful and gripping." Those within the Arc thought that they were the last humans left after the world was destroyed--but they were wrong. There are more survivors. But there is also more to be afraid of. A suspenseful sci-fi thriller to hand to fans of Veronica Roth, Stephen King's Under the Dome, and Justin Cronin's The Passage.
Marina thought she had solved all of the Arclight's mysteries. But there is so much more that Marina is only discovering now. There are more people out there; those in the Arclight compound aren't the only humans who survived the Fade, the monsters that destroyed civilization. Only Marina--and her friends, all of whom have connections to the Fade they never knew about--can lead everyone to the other survivors. But there are also darker dangers that even the Fade fear. The sequel to Arclight, Meridian is an intense, action-packed page-turner about the lines we draw between right and wrong, light and dark . . . and how nothing is ever that black and white.

Meridian quenches your anticipation to the much-loved prequel by Josin L. McQuien. Arclight was just the beginning to the problems that would plague the light side and the dark side. Taking symbolism to a new level Josin manipulates the ideas of white and black and makes you question exactly who is right and who is wrong. If you like continual twists and turns and the dark unknown then this book would suit you well. Josin entwines the readers into her web of thoughts and lets her imagination, and yours, run free. The dilemmas that the main character Marina faces are complex to be sure and inspire deeper thoughts of identity but it can also be noted that this book is meant to entertain a vast audience and will surely do so.

  1. Ooo, so you loved Arclight and Meridian! That's great! I have not read either and to be honest, I'm not entirely interested in the series. However, I love how this book goes beyond the surface of a usual story! Symbolism is important to me, so I'm glad to see that has a huge part in this book. Fantastic review, Hannah!
