I’d like to thank Nora M. Garcia for sending me a copy to read and review, The Lightbearers was simply amazing!
The main story focuses on Cassandra and Phillip a passionate couple that develop mental and psychical powers that help them mediate and be spiritual. These powers make them The Lightbearers and they have been chosen to help protect the human race. In steps Dr Adam Natas an evil and manipulative man who stops at nothing to achieve his goal. His new school, run completely by robots, is educating the children and controlling their minds. Cassandra and Phillip know something is wrong, but can they stop him?
The main characters Cassandra and Phillip are the perfect couple and i’d love to have a relationship like theirs (In reality I think I do). You will be envious because they simply love one another so much. Actually, I don’t even think envious is the right word, I think you are generally really happy for them. Without one another I don’t think they’d have the strength to try and defeat Dr Adam Natas!
Dr Adam Natas is a villain and a bad one at that. The weird thing is that you do actually want to find out more about him because he doesn’t reveal an awful lot. The nature of working with robots has hindered his emotional development, which Cassandra warned everyone about. PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE LISTENED!
Reading about robots taking over human tasks did actually scare me. I do sometimes wonder if the human race is becoming too reliant on technology. I am hypercritical considering I’m typing this on a computer, but even so, I am a little worried, he he.
Overall, The Lightbearers was brilliant! It was well written, throughly researched and a perfect sci-fi mystery.
