Severed by Lizzy Ford and Julia Crane
Two sisters with special gifts and an unbreakable bond ...
Cyena Tyana were born to powerful parents who are among the ruling class on their planet. Their lives are pampered but isolated, constricted to the city walls in which they were born.
Fun loving with a rare but powerful mind power, Tyana is accustomed to being treated like a princess and using her influence to get anything she wants – including protecting her sister from the elders and students who look down on her. The opposite of Tyana in most ways, Cyena’s second-class mind skills make others view her as a blemish on the family bloodline. No one but her sister believes in her.
They don’t know that a war is brewing, until it erupts. A class war tears their perfect world a part, leaving them helpless, alone and worse –severed from one another.
Each girl will risk her life to find the other, and each will be challenged to hone her powers in order to survive environments unlike any they’ve ever experienced.
Rate & take
Another Y.A. offering that grabbed my attention from the book blurb. This is book one of the Starwalkers series. It had potential and it did offer me entertainment, however it felt written with the intention of a series from the beginning and the amount of action was carefully controlled and doled out. From reading the blurbs of the next few books in the series it seems that continues to be the case. I really want to get invested in a series that is either well into numbers of books, or even better is entirely finished, however this will not be one of them as it didn't feel like it would hold my interest in the long run.
