Synopsis: “A meteor strike plunges the world into darkness. A stranger to the village of Brigos Glen restores power and light, supplied by three businesses, known as “The Company,” located beyond the forbidden mountains. The stranger reveals a plan so the Brigons can maintain the power and share the light with outlying territories, which remain shrouded in darkness.
Now, seventy years later, The Company summons six Brigons, including the young engineer Sam Mitchell, to attend a conference in the mountains of the forbidden Outlands.
Responsible for compiling a report about Brigos Glen from his five companions, Sam learns how managers and villagers largely ignored the plan or compromised it to self-interest, forsaking their duty to share the light. They also took for granted The Company responsible for generating and transmitting the power.
In an ordeal fraught with failure, revelations, and judgment, Sam discovers the true identity behind The Company and learns the fate that may befall Brigos Glen . . . that is, unless he can stop it.”
My take: So, when I read a book and review it, the review typically centers around how the book affected me. I’m a very emotion driven reader so when a book is good I feel it deep within in my chest as I’m reading.
While this book started off a bit weak for me, once I hit the middle it seemed to reach its stride. The Company is more thought provoking rather than emotion provoking. As I read the story, I realized the parallels of the story and our walk with God. God is continually asking us if we need help, all we have to do is accept it. However, it’s important to remember that accepting that help comes with responsibilities, mainly the responsibility of offering help to others who are seeing Him.
Even if you aren’t into Christian Fiction, you can enjoy this story. I can’t say it lends to being a science fiction book, but I can say that it has that type of feel to it.
