This is the story of Oriannon, a very human-looking girl with an extraordinary gift: the ability to record what she sees and experiences like the hard drive of a computer. When the mysterious Jesmet, thought to be a Magician in the Old Order, begins to connect with Oriannon, he is banished to Corista’s Shadowside.

On another planet, the new faith of its first Believers is t

There are many YA books about over throwing dystopian societies but this interesting in that it chronicles the rise of the dystopian government and actually shows how ordinary people are duped into giving away all of their freedom.

This was somewhat slow to start off (I guess Oriannon agreed with me!), but still enjoyable once it gets going. This is full of interesting twists. I feel so sorry for Margus! Definitely on the gloomy side compared to the first book, but still good. I find this a unique series in the light that I've never seen allegorical science fiction before; it's an interesting perspective. i will definitely read the final book in the Shadowside Trilogy.
