Oblivion by J.F. Johns (Eternal Darkness Trilogy)

Book Review

Oblivion Review

I really enjoyed Eternal Darkness (Read Review). So, when J.F. Johns contacted me about the second book in the series, I was thrilled!

It is such a privilege to be able to read something before it is released to the masses and no matter how many times it happens I always feel a little zing (my inner fangirl jumping up and down)! 

Oblivion- Eternal Darkness Trilogy Book #2 (Release Date: March 1, 2017)

The world is divided between humans and cyborgs.
Scarlet Lock is neither.
She is a soldier created to kill on command, and is now in the hands of Lucian White, leader of the Revolutionaries.
Lucian and Scarlet share a past and now a future. They need to find the other X-Prototypes before the battle against the government begins.
Eric Thorn will stop at nothing to get Scarlet back while Andrew Silverstone needs to find Eric to save his sister.
It’s a race against time.
They must hurry or else, fall into eternal oblivion.

My Thoughts…

Oblivion picks up four months after Eternal Darkness. Scarlett and some of her friends find themselves in dire circumstances and it is up them to escape and reunite to prepare for an imminent war between the New Government and cyborgs. Scarlett has learned a tremendous amount about herself and what she is capable of but her memories are still fragmented and there is so much that she is desperate to know. She finally meets someone who may have answers but is reluctant to relive the horrors of their past.

Scarlett’s evolution as a character at this point is fantastic. She is no longer fearful and is closer to embracing who she really is. The question is, does she really know who or what she is? Her view on what she is and who she is to the people who love her is a constant inner struggle and I felt for her through the entire book. We also get a far more in-depth look at characters like Lisa and Curtis and there are many surprising things to discover. Things I definitely wasn’t expecting.

Like the first book, the writing is wonderful. Very evocative. The pace picking up as the intensity of the story increased. Very well done by the author. Many questions are answered in Oblivion, but of course, there are now new ones and still some pieces of the puzzle that need to be solved. The ending was completely unexpected! Often in books, the author is afraid to take chances with their characters. Not in this case, and I loved that.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the next one. I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff so I am good and hooked. Thank you J.F. for sharing Oblivion with me in advance.
