I just wasn't able to finish "The Breaking Light". I got to around 20%. It just didn't work out for me at all. The book started out with the MC being held at knife point by her future love. And that was wonderful..............until.......she couldn't take her eyes off of his lips. I mean come on people!!! This girl is being held a knife point by this guy that for some reason wants to kill her and she can't stop thinking about how hot he is and how much his lips are kissable. I'm sorry but my stories need more substance than that.
After that this one pretty much just got worse. We have a romance for no reason and the story just fell very flat. I have to say that the story the author put these character's into just didn't work out.
In a stratified society where contact with the sun is a luxury reserved for the elite, those kept prisoner in the darkness will do anything to find the light. Arden—beautiful, street-smart, and cynical—is one of the citizens of the lowest Level, known as Undercity, of an off-world colony. A blackout band traps Arden in her district, but as sister to the leader of the most powerful gang in Undercity, she has access to Above.
There she meets Dade, one of the few lucky enough to be born into the sun-kissed families who reside in the Towers soaring above the rest of the city. But life isn’t perfect in the sky. Dade, desperate to escape his upcoming arranged marriage, has a secret of his own, and he’s willing to risk everything for it.
An unlikely romance develops between the two teens—but their love faces opposition from above and below. When her gang pressures Arden to help break the grip of the elite and end Dade’s interference with their drug trade, she is forced to make a deadly choice between love and family loyalty. But will the brewing class war destroy the world around them first?
