What is it about?
(Blurb from GoodReads)
The country is divided, separate, and segregated. In the West, techies with amazing technical aptitude are feared and hated; in the East, mages with spectacular supernatural powers are regulated and permitted. Caught between these two worlds, non-magical, non-technical mundanes try to survive from day to day.
When innocent mages are targeted as victims of brutal hate crimes, two sisters are hired to find the killers. Fleeing events in the West, Jenira, the feisty mercenary, and Cat, the tech genius, become a secret and powerful team in an attempt to keep their small family together despite their different natures. What they don’t plan on is teaming up with a Magitech – a man with the rare ability to manipulate both magic and technology. His existence could change everything – the future, the foundation of their society, and maybe even Jenira’s heart.
Thoughts on Worlds Collide
This is an interesting take on a different world. Mages exist in the full light of day, bracketed by those known techies – individuals who have a high affinity to tech and the intelligence to match. They naturally oppose each other, but many are asking why. Into this mess comes a pair of sisters with marked talents of their own, and the supposed opposition between them. They are living proof that the sides can live together…. along with Davin, a dangerously robust magitech…. someone with the powers of BOTH.
It ebbs and flows, twists and weaves, crafting a tale that is both futuristic and medieval…. leaving us with a narrative that promises more.
- Intriguing characters.
- I love the sisters.
- Honestly, I might even like Cat more.
- World building is interesting.
- Doesn’t flow quite as smoothly as I would like.
