Book two in the Arclight series by author Josin L. McQuein is a fast-paced apocalyptic science fiction story about finding oneself, refusing to be someone you know you are not, and taking the step to help others, even if it means taking risks. When Marina finds out she is actually a Fade and not human and has to deal with sharing herself with Cherish, the Fade that invades her thoughts, figuring out who she can trust means serious business. Knowing there are people outside the Arc who need saved, Marina and her friends take it upon themselves to do what is right.
Meridian is a book where I felt torn between liking it and hating it the entire time I was reading. The characters are very well-written, and each has their own unique place in the main story. The world building lacked depth to me as the story felt more dialogue-driven, and this is probably where my dilemma falls in giving this book a better review. I enjoy books on the apocalypse, zombies and new human forms and this book definitely provides this element, just needs more content than dialogue. I would recommend this book, but only after reading the first book in this series, as this may help clear up the lack of world design.
