Eclipse, volume 1 – Book Review

Eclipse tells the story of a dystopian future where a solar flare has destroyed the way we live. The sun burns so brightly that it will burn anyone in daylight, instantly killing them. Ten years have passed and people have adjusted to living nocturnal lives. There are a group of people who wear special suits that allow them to be out in the sun. While on a routine check they find someone who was murdered by being left out in the sun.

The first volume deals with the murder, finding out who did it and why. It’s a great introduction to the series. It’s easy to read, the artwork is nice and the story flows really nicely. It does a great job of showing you the world, but still keeping the story going so you aren’t bogged down in details.

There are also a few flashbacks to the few days after the solar flare and gives backstory to the main character David Baxter. It would be nice to get more of this, and maybe there is in volumes 2-4.

Eclipse is a really good read and I had a great time with it. I’ll be checking out the rest of the series as soon as possible.

    I at first thought this was Twilight-related. What are your opinions on The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave? My mate really enjoyed it.
