YA F MAFI
I haven’t enjoyed a YA series this much since Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Vampire Academy! It hits all my fan-buttons at once: romance, fantasy, strong characters, and plenty of witty banter along the way. (It’s mostly from Kenji. Kenji is bae. Fight me.)
The story also keeps moving at a decent pace which I liked. Plenty of action, dialogue, or descriptions to keep me interested!
Once you get far enough along to learn more, the book has an X-Men type feel to it which I enjoy. There is a dystopian backdrop, but there’s not really enough word building and descriptions of the world to justify it truly being a dystopian. Most of the conflict is internal for Juliette. I’d call it more of a Sci-Fi / Romance—heavy especially in the romance aspect. Both things I’m a sucker for.
I’ve already breezed through books 1-3, and just have to wait for my hold on 4 to arrive!
