Jet Stroud, a nineteen-year-old ARC citizen, gained admission into the prestigious Skylight University after emerging as the best overall student in his entrance examination. Skylight University was founded by Christian Albright, who used his knowledge of artificial intelligence to create a functioning university system. Before joining the university, Jet faced rejection and discrimination from the people in his country and his parents, who abandoned him as a toddler. Something was special about him—his neon-like illumination eyes, of which he was unaware of the cause and side effects. He seeks to have a better life at Skylight University. Out of pity, Cutter, a fellow Blaze player on his school team from his country, told Jet about his condition called Epebus Mortem. Jet soon realized other students on the Skylight campus had the same condition. Despite this, Jet and his friends were determined to resolve the mysteries behind their problems, which kept on unfolding. Will Jet and his friend be successful in their quest to find a solution? What are the mysteries behind his conditions? Read the 866 pages of the book to find out.
I enjoyed some aspects of the book. Jet's journey underscores the significance of separating our current circumstances from our future aspirations. Jet consistently demonstrated a readiness to unearth resolutions for the Epebus Mortem issue. This vividly illustrates how unwavering resolve and effective collaboration can set us apart. Cutter is a valuable companion, exemplifying attributes that individuals should be attentive to when choosing friends within society. Cutter consistently worked in harmony with Jet, Bo, and Cord to tackle the obstacles they encountered, displaying a lack of bias among them.
Some aspects of the book did not resonate with me. Despite the author's division of the book into 23 chapters, I observed an absence of page numbers. While each of these 23 chapters had a title, incorporating page numbers would facilitate locating specific text parts during reading. It might benefit the author to condense and make the mysteries more concise. The progression felt like moving from one mystery to another, creating a chain of mysteries linked from the paintings, Christian Albright, the Book of Vishmu, Heliographi, the serpent, and the prism, all the way to the Atrum and the Lucem.
The Prism Effect by J. Wint is remarkable and deserves high praise for its content. The author's work shines through in teaching readers valuable life lessons, encompassing teamwork, cooperation, resilience, and the significance of genuine friendship. These lessons are skillfully woven into the narratives of Jet, Cutter, Bo, and Cord. I found no mistakes, so it is extraordinarily well-edited. Due to the aspects of the book I enjoyed, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. The elements that didn't resonate with me didn't hinder my reading experience.
I strongly recommend it to those who have an appreciation for science fiction and are interested in embarking on a literary journey centered around a team's mission to discover the mystery behind a disease.
