Review: Prismatic- Sarah Elle Emm

Summary: Rare glimpses of birds are the only reminder of the freedoms Rain Hawkins once had. Now segregated into a mixed-race zone within the United Zones of the Authority, under tyrannical rule of President Nicks, Rain is forced to endure the bleak conditions set upon her. The possibility of a way out arises when Rain discovers an organized resistance called The Freedom Front, and learns that she, along with many other multi-racial people, has special abilities. Determined to overcome her situation, Rain sets out on a mission with the resistance that will fill her life with wonder, romance, and the undying hope for a better world. Title: Prismatic Author: Sarah Elle Emm Pages: 250 pages Rating: 5/5 stars Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review. I didn't really have a clear idea what this book was going to be about but once I started I was sucked into the dystopian world that Sarah Elle Emm created and I didn't wait to leave. I loved how the author took such a major event such as the holocaust and used it in her book as the second coming of Hitler. I also liked that she used mixed races as the "unpure" ones, it made things interesting. I think she took a of that from her real life so it made it easier to connect with the story and the characters. I also found the romance heartwarming due to the situation that the characters were in was so dire. I loved Rain! I feel like she was a heroine that anyone could look up to. I also loved that she had a bit of a rebellious side. She is definitely a girl who knows what she wants and won't stop until she gets it. Jabari seems like he could be a great new book boyfriend *wink*. He is so caring and not pushy with Rain. He too, won't stop until he gets what he wants. Elizabeth Nicks sucks! I really despise her and I want to know what her deal is and who she thinks she is. She needs a good kick to the face that's for sure. I flew through this book and I can't wait to get started on book two Opalescent. I need to know how they acquired their abilities and if they will be successful in freeing the mixed races from that tyrant of a president. I would recommend this novel to all dystopian lovers and even those who aren't. It is that good that everyone should pick this book up.
