Break the enchantments. Find the truth. Ignite the revolution.
A century ago, the Enchanters defeated the evil Lord of the Underworld, but not before he’d unleashed his monsters and ravaged the earth. The Enchanters built the Triumvirate out of what remained of the United States, demanding absolute obedience in exchange for protection from the lingering supernatural beasts.
Sixteen-year-old Flynn Nightsider, doomed to second-class life for being born without magic, knows the history as well as anyone. Fed up with the Triumvirate’s lies and secrecy, he longs for change. And when he stumbles across a clue that hints at something more – secrets in the dark, the undead, and buried histories – he takes matters into his own hands.
Before long, Flynn finds himself hunted not only by the government, but also by nightmarish monsters and a mysterious man with supernatural powers … all seeking him for reasons he cannot understand. Rescued by underground rebels, he’s soon swept up in their vision of a better world, guided by a girl as ferocious as the monsters she fights. But as the nation teeters on the brink of revolution, Flynn realizes three things.
The rebellion is not what it seems.
Flynn himself might be more than he seems.
And the fate of the world now rests in his hands.
*I won a hardcover copy from the author and chose to leave a voluntary review. Thank you!*
This review will be specifically for the Hardcover copy.
I normally don’t comment or take the condition of the book itself into the review unless it effects my reading experience and that it sadly did.
I’m not sure if it was just a bad copy or if all the hardcover copies of this book are like that. But mine had a terrible binding job. The pages just started falling out, which saddens me even more since it was signed. But it got so bad that at the end I was afraid to turn the page in fear it also would fall out. And no it was not me I have books that are super old and reread several times and they don’t lose pages by just turning them.
That being said and other than the fear of keep losing pages I really liked the book. I loved the writing, the story and Characters. I thought it was original and fresh and also super fun to follow. I enjoyed the world building and more so the characters.
So this could or would have been and easy 4-5 star read for me BUT sadly the condition of the book hinder me greatly enjoying it even more.
So I can only give it 3★
