I'm having trouble sleeping and reading helps. Sadly, I can't read many of the books I get discounted because the writing is bad: too many ly adverbs or dialogue tags, boring and repetitive scenes that never seem to go anywhere, characters acting completely stupid.
I'm happy to say that Discern has none of these problems. I enjoyed this book. Well-written, no typos, just a great, story that kept me entertained. There isn't a ton of romance, if that's what you're looking for, but the romance is there, and I can see promise of more in the future. The world is creative, the plot active. It kept my interest. I love how magic students have their own university. I typically dislike high school angst, so I'm glad the main characters are older. I think the best target age is 16-20 year olds, but older adults who enjoy YA literature will like it as well.
Intimacy: kissing Swearing: none that I can remember Violence: quite a bit of action violence, but not over...
While on vacation I took along Discern and the other three novellas for Katon University. I loved them. They are fun, adventurous and good for all ages. I've shared Andrea's books with my granddaughter and she's 11 and I'm 63. I can't wait until book 2 come out next year.... I'm sure I'll be as equally entertained as I was with book 1. Keep up the good work Andrea and thank you for keeping your books clean and swear word free. There's nothing I hate more that to get into a book that looks like it will be good then they start cussing and saying words I hate to hear, or getting way to sexually explicit. That's a sure fired way to keep me from reading their books. I'll always recommend you to my reading friends. ;) Happy Writing, Sherilynn
I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
There are spiders, lots of spiders. I don't like spiders!
This book is about a young girl who is starting college for magic. She has to learn how to use her magic and she is having a difficult time. There is a tad bit of romance with a ruggedly tall dark and handsome guy, but not enough that the story is overshadowed by it. There is friendship, and there is family issues. Glad I'm not related to Nicole's mom.
The story could have used a prequel, but I am sure in following stories the blanks will be filled in. I suggest this book for an older crowd, 15+.
