Darkest Hour (Battle Ground #3)

Author Bio – Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio.

She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. She has renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends – but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction.

Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.

My Thoughts

The third in the Battle Grounds series. It was a good read however it didn’t have ass much of an impact as the second book did.

The jumping between Ketty and Bex ws hard at first to get used to but as each chapter changed point of views it got easier to follow.

Ketty is still a great character and she is harsh and not the friendly style of person you can see she is a person who you would love to have on your team. She is strong and she is loyal. Strong convictions and a sense os duty is what keeps this young lady going.

Bex is one character that I didn’t like. She seems to be built up as the babyface or the hero and there are times when the blurred lines make it almost impossible to know which person or side is right and what side is wrong.

Dystopian books are a lot of fun to readas they show a different side of humanity than most novels. The stories also tend to deal with exaggerated topics that we deal with to a lesser extent.

This series is getting so good and I wan to see so much more and quickly as I just want to know how this ends.
