Benjamin Knight really evolves throughout the first three books, and finally in New Light he takes a stand against the might of Alexander and his army. With his friends Carl and Safran (two of my favorite characters in the books), Ben sets out to unite the tribes of the wastelands.
Every single character, main and supporting, has their time in the spotlight. Deacon, Catrina, and their allies are trapped inside Maleton, but they make the most of their time by disrupting the order and ruling of Alexander.
Matthew, Arian, and Lord Marcus face the mighty army of Alexander, led by the cruel General Boshtok. Their only hope lies in the city of Morton, who is led by the delusional Baron George. Only by convincing him to march his armies and meet with the tribes to the north can they outmatch the invaders.
Characters rise and fall, sacrifices are made, and the end is bitter sweet. New Light is a fantastic book and it closes out the Alexander Saga wonderfully. If you pay close attention, you may read a small bit that teases the next adventure for Ben and his friends! If you enjoy fantasy stories, do yourself a favor and get this book. If you haven't read Knightfall or Darkest Before Dawn, then you've got some catching up to do, and the time will be well worth it!
Benjamin Knight and his crew are at it again in “New Light” (The Chronicle of Benjamin Knight #3).
This 361-page Star Wars-esque (sans the Stars) read has Benjamin Knight, Safran, Carl, and others trying to help Safran and her family reclaim their home.
The prologue begins this read with 2 brothers, Anwin and Darwin of the Thackary Tribe. These boys remind me of Orion Pax and Megatronus (Anwin the oldest, and Darwin being the younger of the two).
Certain events occurred to where they had to fend for themselves, and at the same time found sanctuary within another tribe who took them in with open arms. Somewhere in there (and IT IS explained), Anwin came into a “gift” and learned how to utilize said gift to have certain events unfold.
Last that we remembered, things looked pretty grim for our friends from the previous 2 books:
Prison did not suit our heroes as they rally alongside those who are eager and willing to fight while trying to prove their innocence due to being accused of a heinous crime, as well as being thrown in the middle of a war. Things start to turn around for them as they figure out a way to prove their innocence and dethrone the true guilty party.
Meanwhile, Alexander is living up to expectation as the Liege of Lieges (good or bad, depends on who you ask and what you read; I AM NOT spoiling this one for you!), swaying the populous as he continues his actions and deeds. He is also looking for someone that is holding his attention a great deal.
“New Light” is a hefty read for those who are happy with a good lengthy book. As with its predecessors, several Pop Culture references are in “New Light” (Transformers, Star Wars, Final Fantasy, Indiana Jones, and more).
Mr. Jackson-Lawrence has kept an eye on his editing and proofing in this book, and it has served him very well. As long as his eyes are steady and focused in this aspect (and retains those who have assisted him, if he did seek assistance in this department), his reads will be all the more enjoyable.
Robert Jackson-Lawrence published ANOTHER enthralling read in “New Light” (The Chronicle of Benjamin Knight #3). I am very proud to have read all three books, and even more proud that they are a part of my Library of Great Reads!
Thankfully I managed to find this series after the 3rd book had been released, I am now looking forward to book 4 which the writer has managed to hint at throughout this book.
