Reviewers generally admired Sullivan's new spin on the fairly common postapocalyptic device of a world without functional adults. They noted that as with several recent SF novels with young characters (like Mira Grant's Feed and The Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins) Sullivan forces her protagonists to face some very adult pain. Critics were somewhat divided on her world-building, however; some found the ubiquity of the Shine technology implausible, while others felt it to be a realistic representation of the near future. But despite such disagreements, critics agreed that Lightborn is worth looking into. This is an excerpt from a review published in Bookmarks magazine.
