The Light Reapers

The Light Reapers: Fight for a New Beginning is an intense, action-packed, military sci-fi novel that will have you on the edge of your seat. We follow the Light Reapers, who set out in a post-apocalyptic world to battle the infected. The story picks up right where the previous book left off, but it seems the infected are becoming more intelligent and have turned to torture the uninfected. The Light Reapers must decide to save the world or save themselves.

Author Gary Hickman doesn’t disappoint with this sequel as the action begins from the turn of the first page. We follow the same characters that were in the first book with the introduction of new characters. I appreciated that Lia is tough and can handle her own. Priest, tough on the outside but soft on the inside, especially when it comes to Lia. The descriptions of the battle scenes are gory and unapologetic, and  Hickman does an excellent job of immersing the reader in the action.

The infected are described so well that I felt like I was watching a movie and genuinely afraid of them. This book is similar to the Walking Dead in the sense that the characters are tactical and must survive off the land, but also identical to the Ghost of Mars, where the infected look and act crazy and are not like your typical zombies. The plot and characters are unpredictable, and it’s hard to get attached to a surface because you never know if they will survive. This speaks volumes about the author’s writing style.

The Light Reapers is raw, gritty, and unfiltered and will have you wondering just what will happen next. This is one book that you will not be able to put down and will have you in awe until the very end. However, this book is not for you if you are sensitive to blood and gore.
