Luminary (Anomaly #2)


by Krista McGee

Release Date: 01/07/14 | Thomas Nelson

She was an anomaly with a death sentence. Now she’s free.

Thalli was scheduled for annihilation. She was considered an anomaly–able to experience emotions that should have been eradicated by genetic modification. The Scientists running the State couldn’t allow her to bring undue chaos to their peaceful, ordered world. But seconds before her death, she is rescued.

Now Thalli is above ground in a world she thought was destroyed. A world where not even the air is safe to breathe. She and her three friends must journey across this unknown land, their destination a hidden civilization. It’s their only chance of survival.

Broken and exhausted after an arduous journey, they arrive in New Hope, a town that survived the nuclear holocaust. When Thalli meets the people there–people actually “born” to “families”–her small world is blown wide open.

Soon after their arrival to New Hope, the town comes under attack. She has escaped imminent death, but now Thalli is thrust into a new fight–a fight to save her new home. Does she know enough about this world of emotions, this world of chaos, to save not only herself, but the people she has come to love?

Character Guest Post


We are aboveground. Aboveground. I never thought this was possible. Never, in all my seventeen years did I ever consider leaving the State, standing on earth that once was radioactive, travelling towards the possibility of people who have lived their lives with no idea that the State existed. I can barely comprehend this new reality. I am scared and excited and incredibly curious. Always curious. I want to know more about the world and its secrets. The possibilities seep into my brain like a sustained note on my violin. Will there be survivors? Will they be kind? Cruel? What if there are no survivors? What if we have asked escaped the State only to die here? But I cannot dwell on that possibility. I have to trust the Designer, to believe that he has a purpose in allowing our escape, a purpose for us here. Aboveground.
