Sepora is both the only princess of Serubel and the only living Forger of spectorium anywhere in the world. These two things should mean that her life is magnificent, but instead it means that she lives a life of slavery to the King, her father, who demands more and more spectorium from her. When Sepora runs away from Serubel and straight into the hands of her enemy she has no idea she will fall for him.
My thoughts: This is such a great book! I love the idea of a Forger as a person's possible ability. This book had ALL the things I love in a book: people with fantastic abilities, a Romeo & Juliet-type romance, and drama, drama, drama between kingdoms and people.
Sepora is a great character who is extremely resilient even when she goes through ridiculous amounts of drama and trauma. She never stops caring about her people even when she's become part of Theoria in so many ways. I cannot wait to see what happens for Sepora.
Tarik is a wonderful young leader who has just taken over as King in the wake of his father's tragic death by a terrible disease ravaging their people. The cure it seems is spectorium and they need more and more. Tarik's character was so dar great too because of his relationships with everyone else. He was easily the guy that everyone wants to be friends with.
Together Sepora and Tarik easily begin to create a world that they can both happily fit into whether they realize that's what they're doing or not. This was one of the BEST ARCs I've read. I thought that the cover was perfect for the story of the book too. This world was so engaging. Loved it! It's a MUST BUY for both my home collection AND the school library!
