This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
I hate to buck the trend of "wow" reviews on Amazon, but while I found this book interesting, there were far too many flaws for me to rate it more highly. I think the author will mature into a wonderful talent, but she's just not there yet. Perhaps it was the formatting of the e-book version that I read, but I found the storyline jumped from scene to scene with no transition to indicate the passage of time or why/how the main character suddenly found herself in a new location. Especially distracting to me was the incorrect usage of several words; the example that stands out was describing an adversary as "invulnerable" when he was obviously showing a moment of vulnerability. I think that the author was a bit too ambitious with the breadth of story she wanted to tell and found it disappointing that she stopped the book rather than ending it. There's obviously a sequel planned to wrap up the many loose ends, but it left me unsatisfied. ( )

I'm still a little on the fence with this one. I finished it a few days ago but I needed some time to think on it. This is one of those books where I say I liked it, but not enough to read it again. It seems to follow so many books that's I've already read. It started off like I was going to really like it. Two kids getting into trouble, finding adventure but then took this drastic turn into something that left me going back a few pages to see if I missed something. Later it seemed to mash so much into so little space. Maybe it just wasn't my type of story but the premise of it sounded great however it kind of left me feeling like I read 1984 mashed with Hitchhikers guide with a little Wolverine stuck in. That being said I think (for me at least) it has the potential to be a good read it's just missing something. The main character was someone i couldn't relate to, which is okay, I found I was drawn to the secondary characters more. They have more personality. The world buliding is great. The descriptions of planets is quite vivid. That, for me, was the best part. Again maybe, I signed on to something that was out of the norm for me and that's why I have such a hard time liking it because everyone else seems to, but i guess we can't all like the same things.

I think All Light Will Fall is one of the best book I've got from the early reviewer program on LT.
It's a page turner and a very good read.
Now, the book is not perfect (no books are). I think the main character was not really "likable" and some parts of the book were not serving the story.

Author is a very young woman and I'll definitively check her future works. ( )

'All Light Will Fall' is a dystopian fantasy novel that includes elements of many other genres, including religious, sci-fi and young adult. The story follows a young female protagonist who along with her best friend, are searching to find the truth about the society that they live in. Their quest has dire consequences and they end up learning the truth about things that they would never have imagined. Overall, I enjoyed the writing style of the book and there were moments of beautiful imagery. However, I did not really enjoy the progression of the plot, as I found it a bit jarring and difficult to follow in places, and I did not really sympathise with the main character and found that I could not really relate to her. I would recommend this book to fans of young adult sci-fi. ( )

“Do you want to know the truth, or do you want to be seduced by a lie?”
Are you into Dystopian - perhaps with a hint of sci-fi? Drop everything right now! Yes, RIGHT NOW!! Get this book and travel to an entire new and different existence! It’s unbelievable King started writing this when she was only 16 and is able to deliver such a piece of art!
You’ll end up wishing you’re an Arsenal. Or at least, for a little while… superpowers, so you wouldn’t need any sleep… This fast paced adventure, you’ll want to read from cover to cover without giving a blink!
“From your contempt, you will find nothing but the aching of truth.” ( )
