Three Books and The Power Within Them

By Klarizza Aggabao

When it comes to books, I always tend to gravitate toward characters that are shaken to the core because of a life-changing event. These books are entertaining because of what the characters do with their new powers. Oftentimes, they accrue powers that amplify their hidden strengths, while other powers that don’t seem important may have the most impact.

Since the Spring 2018 edition of the Orange and Blue Magazine is all about power, I will be listing books that involve power in some way, shape or form. Whether it be magical powers or the power to stand up to one of history’s worst characters, the characters in these books have a sort of power that helped and encouraged them to jump over hurdles, fight battles and face the one thing that is standing in their way.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

It’s a given to add Harry Potter in this list, and it’s not just because of the magical elements embedded in the plot. Alongside being witches and wizards, the characters also touched on powers of resistance against evil, the power behind the houses and powers of friendship. With seven books in the original series, there are endless types of power Rowling introduces for the characters and readers to immerse in.

The book focuses on Lina and Doon who live in an underground city that heavily relies on a generator for their light source and electricity. When the lights begin to flicker, Lina and Doon soon find a way to prevent the darkness. The two 12-year-olds flee from family, friends, the authority and fight their way out of the City of Ember to a life outside the darkness.

“Wolf by Wolf” by Ryan Graudin

What if Hitler won the Second World War? Yael, a former death camp prisoner, fueled by the memories of her loved ones who were killed in death camps, finds it her mission to win the Axis Tour and kill Hitler. The Axis Tour is an annual motorcycle race across continents, and the victor wins an exclusive audience with Hitler himself. Yael was also a part of a human experimentation that caused her to transform physically. With that power and the fire within her, it is up to Yael to avenge the death of her loved ones, millions more and the world.
