Although targeted at the "young adult" age group it is suitable for all ages as it has a good and original plot. I am far from the target age group and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I do not normally like series as I get fed up waiting for the next in the series which often do not appear however with this one no problem as the second in the series is out. I do not know if this is to be a long series but I will certainly read the next one in the near future.
I think the main reason that I want to know more as there are loose ends that I hope will be tied up later however the book almost works as a standalone but does end with an unexpected twist making me want to know more. The mix of Akori and humans is intriguing as is why the power of the Akori needs to be controlled, there is a romantic theme running through the story but it is not overdone. I liked the character development where the background and abilities of the characters was slowly drawn out. In all a good story with many refreshing new ideas.
While I will not go into details about the plot in this review (as this has already been adequately described) I will say it is about human beings and aliens from another world trying to find a way to coexist peacefully. The book's central character, Addison aka "Addy", is a young woman whose parents were killed at her birth resulting in her being raised by a handful of humans in a surrealistic alien kingdom aka "Tremain" positioned on earth but having to "travel" to different regions in order to not be detected. These aliens aka "Akori" do not die when they are killed but instead are "scattered" able to return as they were in a 20 year period. The Akori are marked by ancient symbols and the power of those currently holding it is being threatned by a seemingly renegade group of Akori aka "Mesen". There is an Overseer's Stone which is the responsibility of the leading human and is ceremoniously passed from one generation to another. Power struggles ensue, Addy starts to develop romantic feelings for an Akori who is tragically scattered in trying to heal someone (his energy is drained), and trust issues develop between Addy and other young people she grew up with. The story line does move along and keeps you wanting to know what is going to happen next.
I do realize that this book was written for a young adult audience in mind. There is some emphasis on what the young people are wearing in a "trendy" kind of way. I wish, however, that the author would have developed the characters a little more deeply so that you could really get to know who they were as people. I also would have liked to have the geographic areas to which the alien/human kingdom Tremain traveled to described in greater detail. That would probably be the only real criticism I would have. Otherwise I really LIKED this book. It is a good read for young and old alike.
As her grandfather ails, he shifts the estate one last time to a pristine beach in Florida. Considering that the usual locales are frigid and harsh, Addy is thrilled with the move, but there's a problem. The estate has landed here before, and Addy learns that the move had little to do with chance or her grandfather's desire for a little sun.
Besides growing concerns over her grandfather's health and her looming obligations should he pass away, Addy finds herself drawn to a mysterious stranger who is in turn drawn to the estate against his will. But as their friendship grows, so does the interest of her childhood friend, Gage.
Overall, the story is well-written, the dialog flows naturally, and the plot is fresh and easy to follow. The history of the Akori and Addy's family involvement are woven into the story without lingering too long on back story in any one place. I also love how Addy and her friends are, for the most part normal teenagers, even those who are not human. There are no vampires or werewolves in this story, but the immortal and powerful Akori provide a unique stand-in for those who enjoy that genre, while providing enough of a change for those who weary of it.
I highly recommend Dissever to anyone who likes ya fantasy set in the modern day.
This book took a few chapters for me to get in to as you meet a lot of people and get a lot of information in a short time. Though once I got the characters sorted out in my head I really found it hard to put down.
There are some real shockers in this book, twists in the story that caught me by surprise. It made for an interesting and enjoyable read. I am most definitely looking forward to reading the next one
