Review : Fair To Hope by Sam Reed

Velma had lived two lives: her first as a former foster kid, and her second as an unlikely recruit into a secret order that satisfied her need for retribution. Her fifteen-year-old self had given up on hope, but after three years with the Taram, she’d found her life’s purpose.
That is, until she is surprisingly named Kachina, the fabled chosen empowered to fight the last battle for the fate of the world. Having to kill someone she loves was never part of the bargain, even if it means saving everyone else from damnation. Building a normal life free from the pull of the Taram–seems like the only answer to her prayers. Except her best friend, the other Kachina, is coming. The legend is clear that one of them must die.Velma will have to weigh the cost of her life against a world that’s constantly betrayed her and quite literally decide if she’ll be damned in dying, taking the whole world with her. 

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

This book comes out August 30th 2016

I wasn’t too sure at first about how this book would go. I found the start to be a bit slow and it did take me a couple of chapters to really get into it. I also felt like we were dropped in the middle of a story, i felt abit lost in this complex world at first. The second part was alot more fun and entertaining. When we actually see Velma using her magic and training for the big fight. That was amazing and not long enough. Overall, the story was great and interesting, but a bit slow during some parts. Velma was a fantastic main character. Strong. Kind. and fun to follow around. I really enjoyed reading for her POV. The side characters were probably my favorite thing about this novel. Sue was just so fun and sweet. I absolutely adore her. So was Nita and pretty much everybody from the town. But the best one has to be Enoch. He is just so freaking amazing. I’m sad we didn’t get to see him more, i’m dying to know more about him. He was truly magical and entertaining as hell. Love the fact that his eyes changed color, such a lovely little detail that made me love him even more.  As for the writing style, it was great. I see alot of potential in this writer and i will gladly read more of her work.
