Okay, I finished Larkstorm this week, and I can't stop thinking about it.
Seriously, y'all - it's Matched meets Hex Hall. In other words, dystopia AND witches. What's not to love?
GO READ IT.
I can't actually review it, though - considering that I know the author. See more about my review policy here.
In the years following the destructive Long Winter, when half the world’s population perished, the State remains locked in battle against the Sensitives: humans born with extra abilities.
As one of the last descendants of the State’s Founders, seventeen-year-old Lark Greene knows her place: study hard and be a model citizen so she can follow in her family’s footsteps. Her life’s been set since birth, and she’s looking forward to graduating and settling down with Beck, the boy she’s loved longer than she can remember.
However, after Beck is accused of being Sensitive and organizing an attack against Lark, he disappears. Heartbroken and convinced the State made a mistake, Lark sets out to find him and clear his name.
But what she discovers is more dangerous and frightening than Sensitives:
She must kill the boy she loves, unless he kills her first.
Actually, this was the first book I read on my brand new Kindle, and I'm so glad it was one I loooooved.
In other news, for those of you who may worry, I spent a long weekend in San Francisco, hanging out with friends and doing some research for another project. Now, I'm currently in Sacramento, working on Ever Afters 2 (I need to send it to Courtney by Feb 2).
