After succumbing to the sudden and terrifying urge to rip people’s eyes out of their sockets, 16-year-old Lysandra Blake finds herself tied down in a psych ward, convinced she’s crazy. The doctors have no answers, and Lys is ready to give up when the mysterious Jeremiah Mason appears, telling Lys that she’s not insane—she’s addicted to a rare and deadly drug that she has no recollection of using. Mr. Mason offers to take her to his facility where he can treat her. Desperate yet suspicious, Lys agrees to go with Mr. Mason to his facility where she meets with a fellow addict, the tall and handsome Kamau. Together they discover that Mr. Mason may not have told them the truth about their condition—they’re thrown headfirst into a world of daunting powers that are not only unbelievable, they are dangerous.
What I liked about this book:
This is a wonderfully written and quick read. It draws you into a new world of magic and keeps you moving through to the cliffhanger ending… I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Schneider has in store for Lysandra and her friends.
What I didn’t like about this book:
This book took a few chapters to really get moving and the history of what was going on with Lysandra was pretty vague, but well worth it once you got into the book. The only other thing I, personally, didn’t like was that the author would constantly use Lys’ name(the repetitive nature just became too much) sometimes the use of pronouns is a good thing.
Who I would recommend this book to:
For anyone who enjoyed reads such as the Twilight series, the Harry Potter series, or even the Hunger Games series…
