Lyrian Wallace was only ten years old when the Malevolence struck on October 10, 2056. She thought the next decade had numbed her to the grief, the death, the bots, and the daily struggle for survival. She lost her parents when they became Sleepers, but like everyone else, she had pieced together a new family. Lyrian was almost content when the Alliance began taking them . . .
The world always took things away from her. She could only live for today and never dared to hope for any heaven. But when her circumstances change, Lyrian must choose how she might live for both this life and the next.

Doulos, D.K. WoE Is Us. Greenville, SC: Ambassador International, 2021.
D. K. Doulos is a new author. WoE Is Us is a dystopian, end times novel written for young adults but I think it is a good one for parents as well. The underlying message of the book is that technology is not evil but that it can be used for evil. The story is set about 40 years in the future and the leaders of our country have used technology for evil – it is called Malevolence. I think the book contains a warning to be careful how we use technology and to speak up when we see others going down a slippery slope toward allowing technology to control our lives.
Another message is the importance of sharing your faith with family and friends. Lyrian has no biblical background knowledge and she has been an orphan since she was 10. My question while reading was – did she have parents who had faith and just didn’t share it? Was there no one in her circle of family/friends growing up who could have shared their faith with her? Why did she not even know some of the most well-known Bible stories? Christians have an obligation to share their faith and I think WoE Is Us does a good job of showing why.
Lyrian faces some difficult tasks and decisions throughout the plot of the book. Since she is not a Christian, she has to rely on her own wits and trust friends. She learns some difficult lessons. Lyrain shows a lot of growth as the plot progresses. Doulos has created some very likable characters in WoE Is Us. I hope that there are more books about these characters planned.
WoE Is Us would be a great addition to a K-12 Christian school library. I think it is appropriate for middle school and up.
I received a complimentary copy of WoE Is Us. This is my honest review.
