Overview

The Forgotten, book one in The Lux Guardians series, is a Young Adult Dystopian novel set both in a future wreck of London and London in the Victorian era.

Honour and Horatia Frie are twins living in a world of wreck and ruin.

Forgotten London is a dismal place of containment, rationing, and a four-family-per-house regulation. Twenty five years ago the world was set ablaze when solar flares obliterated three quarters of the Earth’s population and wiped out whole continents in one blow. The flares brought with them The Sixteen Strains: agonizing and fatal diseases that plague each of the forty one zones of Forgotten London and the rest of the world. The only places that escaped fatal damage were two countries now known as The Cities – States and Bharat. The rest of the world – The Forgotten Lands – is contained within borders for the people’s protection against even deadlier Strains outside the barrier. But fifteen year old Honour thinks differently. He thinks that they’re kept inside the fence for other, more menacing reasons. He thinks that States are planning to kill them.

Branwell and Bennet Ravel are twins living in a world of danger and secrecy.

In Victorian London, years before the solar flares hit, the Ravels’ world has just been turned upside down. Their father, poisoned by something even genius Branwell can’t determine, has passed away. His dying words were unnerving orders to keep each other safe no matter the cost, and to hide everything he has ever invented. When one of his creations goes missing – a device named The Lux that can generate unlimited energy – the twins are shocked to discover that their very own government has stolen it and, according to their father’s journals, are planning to use it to create unfathomable explosions to destroy their world.

    World-building was amazing, complex but simple enough to understand without problems when concentrated. There was many characters and their age variated, which is fresh for YA books, especially the ones that are part of dystopian genre. I also loved the unique mix of genres and how they worked together to make the book interesting. For a debut author I say this is exceptional and really wonderful - I can't wait for the sequel!

    The basic storyline sounded good, but this ended up being one of the most confusing books I've read lately.  Too much jumping around to different times and locations---very hard to follow.
