    Interesting Start to Series

    The New Dark is the first book in the Dark Times Trilogy. This is the first book by Lorraine Thomson so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a well-written dystopian story. This should not be read as a standalone. While this book is written for young adults, older adults will enjoy it too (at least this one did). There is violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat that all of that info here. The storyline is somewhat predictable but this book is still worth reading. As usual, everything and everyone are not as it seems. I do want to find out more about this characters and will continue to read the rest of the trilogy. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and chose to leave a review for other readers.

    I liked it

    *voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from NetGalley* When I first read this, I got sucked in because I absolutely love the kind of stories that have that village feel. You know, villages with horses and 'everything is wood' kinda thing. They were simple but alright despite everything that happened. In this case, it's a Dystopian, which really just makes it cooler. The characters were another favorite. I really liked David and Sorrel, but it's funny because even they had a lot of growing up to do. It was both frustrating and entertaining to watch, especially when it effected the other characters. The story had its lags, especially when it would go from their mini adventures to horrendous mind games with creeps you'd rather see dead, but it was overall good!

    Dystopian book that has a good world concept

    3.5 stars...The new dark left many questions. The book is a dystopian society but it really doesn't explain what happened. We just know there was a "before". There are mutants, not sure what happened to cause the mutants. We meet Sorrel and her love interest David in the opening chapter. They live in Amat. It's a rough life where you hunt and trade for things you need. Sorrel is a young teen and naive. Mutants attack their camp and many people are killed. She survives but now is on her own. This is her story. I don't want to give too much away in the book but I did enjoy the world. I enjoyed the story but there are so many open questions. The book ends on a strange note too. Like not a cliffhanger and not an open question. I thought maybe my book didn't download all the way. I have actually reached out to the author just to check if that really was how the book was supposed to end. I would recommend the book but just know that there will be open questions and a strange ending. It appears as though this will be a trilogy so hopefully that will answer some of the questions.

    Wow! Need book 2

    I requested this book due to the blurb and the cover. It seemed something up my alley and I was delighted to receive ARC. I enjoyed reading this book. The plot was good and I liked the main character in the book Sorrel. It’s a dystopian book and it talks a little about how life was before and how it is now and how some of the inhabitants survive this new world. How there are mutants who attack humans. Without giving away any spoilers I must say that Einstein grew on me and I hope to learn more about his fate in the next book. ❤️ The book does have its moments where it’s a little slow but honestly what book or movie doesn’t? Don’t fret it picks up speed and that “slow part” is needed to show us how vulnerable we can be. I hope there is a book 2 following the release of this series. I really want to know what happens to the main characters of this series. As mentioned above, I received this ARC by NetGalley on behalf of Bastei Entertainment in exchange for an honest review.
