Title: The Last City
Author: RM Gilmour
Genre: Sci Fi Romance, time travel, dystopian
A battle approaches Threa - a war of wills, one driven to control it, and the other to destroy it.
While immersed in their history, Lydia learns of the overwhelming threat to the planet and its people. And even though she was brought to Threa by her soulmate Jordan, it has come to be her home. And she will not let it go.
Every day Lydia trains with Lena and Dax, but she doubts she will ever be as strong as they need her to be. She is determined however, to be strong enough, to be ready, should she ever again, be confronted by an enemy.
But what she can’t fight, are Jordan’s memories. With each step that he takes toward the past, Lydia feels him pulling away, closing himself off.
As the war rages, Lydia is determined to stay strong when her faith in Jordan is challenged. But is she strong enough to survive her own fears? Or will his ties to the past sever the unbreakable bond between them?
They say home is where the heart is but what happens when the one person you trust the most betrays you for the greater good?
War is coming to Threa and everyone is preparing for the upcoming battle, especially Lydia. Every day she trains under the guidance of Lena and Dax but the more she trains and studies, the further Jordan retreats from her. Jordon’s love gives her the strength to deal with life in this foreign place but when someone close to Lydia betrays her, will Lydia have the strength to face it without Jordan? Or will Lydia crumble under her fears?
WOW! The Last City picks up right where The Colony left off and I loved every minute of it. From the action scenes to the intricate plot twists I didn’t see coming to the all-consuming love between Lydia and Jordan, this is an emotional read. Characters are tested, especially the growth of Lydia from timid to warrior-like made this a page-turner. Time flew by as I lost myself in The Last City. Before I knew it, it was over. I can’t wait for the next installment in this explosive dystopian series!
Favorite Character/Quote: “She was the toughest person, I was sure, I would ever meet. The strongest of the warriors, the most undefeated. She was the force I wished to live up to.”
