I love a good dystopian story, and this book had that plus great characters and a mix of magic that had e totally entranced!
The magical powers that these characters have were exciting, and I loved learning about them. It’s a magical system that was easy to understand, which I always appreciate! The story begins with an accidental use of powers, and it gripped me from the first line!
The writing is wonderful, and created an excellent world to delve into. This is the first book in the series, and I am looking forward to jumping into this story more with book 2!
Overall I thought this book had a fabulous story with an awesome female MC, and an exciting plot that made it hard to step away from!
To Read or Not To Read:
I would recommend Power Divided for readers that enjoy young adult fiction in a dystopian/post-apoc setting. Readers that enjoy a magical element will be delighted!
