Darkest Minds Series by Alexandra Bracken

“They were never scared of the kids who might die, or the empty spaces they would leave behind. They were afraid of us-the ones who lived.”

Ruby’s world is turned upside down when on her 10th birthday, she develops powers that sends her into a government controlled “rehabilitation camps” for kids. When Ruby soon discovers that things are not as they seem, she escapes, barely, and is on the run. This is where the book begins.

“Let’s carpe the hell out of this diem.”

It slowly becomes no secret that Ruby is not the only one with these powers and that the government is not good. She bands together with a group of supernatural kids who want freedom from the evil government as well as questions answered. among these group of kids is a boy named Liam who Ruby finds a connection with.

“Cause, frankly, the way I see it, you and me? Inevitable.”

In this books series, we see Ruby not only embrace her powers but become the leader of the Children’s League but find love with Liam. Liam is soon captured and has his memory of Ruby erased, Ruby not only needs to save him but save the world.

“We’ll just have to try to make better mistakes tomorrow.”

Set in a faced paced trilogy with a follow up book after, we read about Ruby coming into her powers, as well as her life, and taking control of her destiny. This is a fantasy, superpowers, sci-fi read with romance and ultimate friendship mixed in. There’s corrupt government, rebellious kids, and secrets in almost every chapter. This was one of the very first fantasy series that I have ever read (back in 2017) and it remains one of my favorite series still to this day.

“I think I’m losing it—I don’t know what’s happening, what happened, but I look at you, I look at you, and I love you so much. Not because of anything you’ve said, or done, or anything at all. I look at you, and I just love you, and it terrifies me. It terrifies me what I would do for you.”

Rating: 4 out of 5.
