Head Shot

Author Biography (Long)
Hilary Thompson was born to parents who made a habit of taking roads less traveled. But she was also a Libra, a first child, and an independent, willful child, so she has made a habit of taking a few roads on her own.

After trying on hats made for artists, architects, restaurant and retail workers, landscape designers, legal secretaries, and professional students, she retreated back to her first loves of education and writing.

Hilary now teaches high school full time, writes whenever and wherever she can, and reads as much as her eyes can handle. She also tries not to spoil her own independent, willful children or neglect her wonderful soul-mate of a husband too much. She tends to ignore laundry baskets and dirty dishes.

Dream Cast
This casting isn’t necessarily about who I would pay to play in my movie, but rather who I picture in my head when I’m imagining a scene. Having a distinct face in mind helps me visualize how the characters would look and sound as they react to the events and people around them.

Astrea (Ah-stray-uh)
Sophie Turner. Totally stealing this idea from blogger (LINK) because I had never found a real person to be Astrea. I had a mental image, though, and this actress is spot-on. The brilliant hair, the feisty side-glance, the angry, innocent beauty. The main difference is Astrea has grey eyes, like smoke.

Lexan (Lex-ehn)
Douglas Booth. Such a pretty, pretty boy. Even without the Boy George makeup. He should really have blondish hair for a perfect Lexan, but those eyes? Perfection.

Stian (Sty-ehn)
Jake Gyllenhaal, when he’s a little bit laughy and a lot bit scruffy. The main difference is Stian’s eyes are green, and I believe Jake’s are blue. Eh, no big deal.

Brenn
Taye Diggs. He visited my high school dance class one year, and I haven’t exactly forgotten…he seems the perfect blend of serious eagle-eye, fun uncle, and secret-keeper extraordinaire. (No spoilers, but he keeps a big one!)

First Leader Keirna (Keer-nah)
Lucy Liu. She’s great at funny, but I think she could easily pull off what Kate Winslet does in Divergent – the switch-flip between caring leader and psychotic visionary. (I’m remembering Kill Bill!) The haircut, jacket, and slightly imperious smile in this pic are how I usually visualize Keirna too.

4****

An unusual story of intrigue, teen angst, romance and discovery, set far into our future. A story about a young couple fighting to accept their destiny, torn between fulfilling a prophecy and deciding their own fate. Their struggle against the expectations if others is impressive and inspiring. Instead of simply complying, they seek to understand the reasoning and fight for freedom when they find it lacking.
Astrea is a 16 year old with a heavy burden on her shoulders, she and Lexan desperately fight their mutual attraction.
Reading about Asphodel’s awe over common things in our everyday lives gave me a new perspective.
Unexpected twists left me gasping and anxiously awaiting the next book. ~Review done by Jai
