Addictive. This book has been amazing. I can’t wait until it becomes as mainstream as the HP series. I want all the merchandise! I want the necklaces, dresses, and weapons mentioned in these books. It’s the kind of book where you feel like if you just tweaked your senses enough, you could use “magic” like these characters. It’s not really magic, but that’s explained in the books. My daughter, who is 10, read through the 3rd book first. I can only read before and after work, so I’m still on the second book. I can say without hesitation that I will purchase the rest of the series and anything else the author has written. I also purchased the audio version so I could listen on my way to and from work. I have no regrets.
“When my father’s hand had brushed over the paper, I used to wonder about what had influenced his drawings. What gave him inspiration? He used to show me drawings of a city, pointing out where the mage had built a wall or designed a tower. I know none of it is real, but… what if it is?”
Five years after her father’s death, Mara Danarko believes everything is going great. Her mother has a wonderful boyfriend, Bryce, and Mara is getting used to small-town life.
Her world is turned upside-down when she comes home one day to find Bryce trying to kill them and an old family friend mysteriously appearing out of nowhere. Injured, Mara passes out only to wake up with a strange new power called Source which supposedly originates thousands of years ago from a biochemical called Voyana.
She has to learn how to harness it before she hurts someone by accident. However, not everyone wants her to master her newfound power.
Will she be able to control her Source in time to keep it from being used against herself and those she cares about?
