Summary (from Goodreads):
She was an anomaly with a death sentence. Now she’s free.
Thalli was scheduled for annihilation. She was considered an anomaly–able to experience emotions that should have been eradicated by genetic modification. The Scientists running the State couldn’t allow her to bring undue chaos to their peaceful, ordered world. But seconds before her death, she is rescued.
Now Thalli is above ground in a world she thought was destroyed. A world where not even the air is safe to breathe. She and her three friends must journey across this unknown land, their destination a hidden civilization. It’s their only chance of survival. Broken and exhausted after an arduous journey, they arrive in New Hope, a town that survived the nuclear holocaust. When Thalli meets the people there–people actually “born” to “families”- -her small world is blown wide open.
Soon after their arrival to New Hope, the town comes under attack. She has escaped imminent death, but now Thalli is thrust into a new fight- a fight to save her new home. Does she know enough about this world of emotions, this world of chaos, to save not only herself, but the people she has come to love?

About the Author:
3 sets of print copies of Anomaly and Luminary (US only)
Luminary was a really good read. It was cute and it had a lot of interesting elements added to it. I really enjoyed learning about Thalli and how she continued on with her life. The story continues right where Anomaly, Book 1, finished off. Although the beginning was slow, once it picked up, it kept on running. This story definitely takes you on a thrill ride and you will be clinging to your seat just waiting to find out what happens. I am so excited that this series is a trilogy! I cannot wait until the last books come out!
