Light the way by Joe Kipling BOOK BLITZ
a surname like Kipling, Joes' future as a writer might have been predetermined
. . . . well at least it assured her a good place on the bookshelves.
avid traveller she spent many years backpacking around the world and has by
pure luck managed to avoid catastrophe, although she has been known to miss a
flight or two.
She now lives in West Yorkshire and if she's not at home
writing she’ll be found hiking in the hills around her house with her dog Rosie.
Joes debut novel Blinded by the Light was published by
Cillian Press in 2013. Light the Way is her follow up novel and the 2nd
book in the UnionTrilogy.
MaryAnn Hunter is
15 years old and her life in the Neighbourhood as an Alpha was dominated by
fashion, celebrity and a desperate need to fit in. Having given up this
position of privilege to join her brother Daryl and Uncle Patrick on the
Outside she struggles to come to terms with the realities of life in the Union
caves.MaryAnn has a real empathy for
others and a strong understanding of right and wrong.
Daryl Hunter is
MaryAnn’s older brother. He ran away from home when he was 15 to join the Union
and before the events of Blinded by the Light they hadn’t been in contact for a
number of years. With his messy dark hair and slender frame he makes an
unlikely resistance fighter. However along with his best friend Peter and
sidekick Flash Gordon they make a formidable team.
Patrick Hunter is
MaryAnn and Daryl’s uncle. He’s the leader of the Union, a rebel group fighting
for the people left on the Outside after a Flu virus decimated the UK. He cares
about his extended family, but the thing closest to his heart is the fight for
equality and he will go to any lengths to bring down the Neighbourhood.
Peter Mallory is
a solider in the Union. He’s Daryl’s best friend and they share a passion for
Sci-fi and superhoeros. He even named his dog and faithful sidekick after Flash
Gordon. Peter’s first impression of MaryAnn was not very favorable and this does
cause some friction. Peter can be stubborn and a little arrogant but remember
not to call him ‘Petey.’
The Director is
the leader of the Light and ruler of the Manchester Neighbourhood. He’s tall, attractive
and the embodiment of everything that the Light, values. He’s a charismatic and
popular leader, but beneath the shiny veneer there’s a cold and calculating
heart.He cherishes his position and
will go to any lengths to keep it.

but comfortable life on her family farm.
