The story follows Talea, a humble laborer girl that hides a dangerous secret: she can control lightning. Talea and her family work hard to survive and make a living as laborers, until one day when she discovers a boy that holds the same ability as her, as well as mysterious masked men stalking her. The novel has this dystopian vibes that remind me of The Hunger Games in the beginning, with her family obviously suffering to make ends meet living through strict rules of the government and mandatory drafts of the men to the army.
The story has a lot of potential to develop into an amazing series, the world building flows perfectly and is easy to grasp. I am hoping for a more romantic side-story development in the subsequent books (you guys know I need some romance) however since the main character is 15 I’m not sure if that will be the case.
The pages flew in my hands, its very intriguing and fast paced. I am eager to read the following books in the series!
