    This is such a fun and exciting debut novel. It's a really interesting mix of fantasy and dystopian and I flew through it! This book follows Kenadee, a girl who discovers that she has magic. In this alternate America there is an evil president (v relevant) who despises magic and the main character soon has a run in with the government. I won't say much about the plot, but it was full of twists and turns!Oddly I didn't always like the main charact...

    I got the chance to read this lovely book before it came out, and, LET ME TELL YOU! This book is a fabulous read. If you're looking for a mix of The Darkest Minds meets The Hunger Games meets The Fifth Wave, then look no further! Let's define what works well for this book. I think it's the strongest element is the human nature. Truly I believe that these characters acted as real people will. Not to spoil anything, but, put under these pressures, ...

    Some of you guys know that I cannot resist a dystopian book and so I had to give this book a try. This is a book about fighting the resistance against a bad president that rules the country. Sounds a bit familiar with what's happening right now in the world, isn't it?Magic is a big part of this book and its great that the good guys have a major advantage from the bad guys who is the president and his army. Basically the whole story is about the p...

    I received this ebook in exchange for a fair and honest review, so I would like to thank first Oftomes for the opportunity.I won’t go through the synopsis again. From what I read it sounded like an excellent, original idea. The book combines two of my favourite themes: magic and dystopian worlds, so far I was in love!!As I read the books I could feel the pain and anguish of the characters. I started to put myself in their shoes and I was findin...

    I received this book from OfTomes Publishing in exchange for an honest review.I'm a huge fan of dystopian novels, like Divergent and The Hunger Games so when I heard that The Traitors Crux was a mix of dystopia and magic I got very excited and knew that I'd love this book! This easy read transported us to a unique world filled with a great ensemble of characters and the occasional plot twist!When it came to our protagonist Kenadee, I didn't clic...

    Originally published on my blog: Witch Plus CatAs much as I try to get into the whole YA dystopian genre, I just can’t do it.Seriously, if the world turns to bat shit crazy (which seems like it is), find a sixteen-year-old girl, stick with her, because like every book in this genre, she is likely to save the world.I actually find it funny that it’s always the female teenagers that rise up against evil politics to save the world from damnation...

    3.5 Stars***If you would like to see all my thoughts on this book, be sure to check out the review on my here is a snippet and overview of what I thought:Overal, I think that this series has potential. I also think that because this is the author's first book, she has done a good job and can only get better. There is definitely some places that could use development but at the end of the day, she has a g...

    I received a free copy in exchange for review.This book isn't like anything I've read before. I absolutely loved the way this book was written, it was fun and easy to read and I finished it before I even realised the end was near (that's the problem with ebooks folks).It was a very unique story, at least it was to me, and maybe not something I'd have picked up myself if it wasn't for this review (and my blind trust in everything Benjamin recommen...

    I liked the idea of a community of magical people being hidden from the big bad. In this case, the government who wants to use their powers for controlling people. I wasn't a fan of Kenadee. She kept making the same mistakes and expecting different outcomes. I liked Bryce but the relationship with Kenadee seemed to happen too quickly especially for her being an outsider. I was more interested and invested in Harlow. What action there was I enjoye...

    I received an advance reading copy of The Traitor’s Crux in exchange for an honest review. I haven’t read many fantasy novels involving witches for a long time, practically since I read Harry Potter when I was younger...I was pleasantly surprised when The Traitor’s Crux turned out to have similarities. The magic and the concepts in this book were unique but it reminded me of Harry Potter in more of an atmospheric way. The battles in this bo...
