Last Light Falling features fifteen year old twins Arena and Gabriel, who live in a dystopian America. Set in 2053, the country is falling apart. War rages in the country, but a more Biblical fight is about to start with Arena and Gabriel at the heart of it.
Arena is a strong, likeable protagonist. Circumstances have made her a fighter, which she is going to need to be.
I think the relationship between the twins was well written and believable. I think what makes a dystopian story work is that it plays on real fears and on things that could happen. A great young adult read.
