In the beginning was the darkness, and in the darkness was a girl, and in the girl was a secret…

In the domed city of Yuan, the blind Princess Isra, a Smooth Skin, is raised to be a human sacrifice whose death will ensure her city’s vitality. In the desert outside Yuan, Gem, a mutant beast, fights to save his people, the Monstrous, from starvation. Neither dreams that together, they could return balance to both their worlds.

Isra wants to help the city’s Banished people, second-class citizens despised for possessing Monstrous traits. But after she enlists the aid of her prisoner, Gem, who has been captured while trying to steal Yuan’s enchanted roses, she begins to care for him, and to question everything she has been brought up to believe.

As secrets are revealed and Isra’s sight, which vanished during her childhood, returned, Isra will have to choose between duty to her people and the beast she has come to love.

In anticipation for next Tuesdays release of the final book in The Darkest Mind series, In The After Light, we have started a thread.  I (Jen) haven’t read this series yet, so as Chelsea said on the thread:

“Jen just started book one so I thought we could all comment along and watch her squirm as she goes through the perils (hehe) of the first two books. 😛
Squirm, Jen, squirrrrrm!
(but mostly, swoon over Liam)”

Here is the link to our current discussion.  It’s entertaining thus far! -https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/2052174-buddy-read-for-epic-finale-spoiler-free-please

The Darkest Minds Synopsis:
When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.

Now sixteen, Ruby is one of the dangerous ones.

When the truth comes out, Ruby barely escapes Thurmond with her life. Now she’s on the run, desperate to find the one safe haven left for kids like her—East River. She joins a group of kids who escaped their own camp. Liam, their brave leader, is falling hard for Ruby. But no matter how much she aches for him, Ruby can’t risk getting close. Not after what happened to her parents.

When they arrive at East River, nothing is as it seems, least of all its mysterious leader. But there are other forces at work, people who will stop at nothing to use Ruby in their fight against the government. Ruby will be faced with a terrible choice, one that may mean giving up her only chance at a life worth living.

We are a very tight-knit group here on this blog, so we tend to read a lot of the same books at the same time. We create threads on Goodreads and invite all of our closest friends from the site to read along with us. So, we decided to start posting our threads from Goodreads on here so anyone who is interested can follow along on our updates as we all read-and even join in and comment along if they like 😛 Enjoy!

The book we chose to Buddy Read this time is:
