I'm happy to say that Discern has none of these problems. I enjoyed this book. Well-written, no typos, just a great, story that kept me entertained. There isn't a ton of romance, if that's what you're looking for, but the romance is there, and I can see promise of more in the future. The world is creative, the plot active. It kept my interest. I love how magic students have their own university. I typically dislike high school angst, so I'm glad the main characters are older. I think the best target age is 16-20 year olds, but older adults who enjoy YA literature will like it as well.
Swearing: none that I can remember
Violence: quite a bit of action violence, but not over the top for even, say 13-16 year-olds.
A title rife with hidden meanings.
Does Nicole, a college freshman, discern her magic? Does she discern other's magic? Well no, on both counts. How does a girl who can't even "Channel" learn to do the magic necessary to qualify for an internship with the most powerful magical person around, who also happens to own the one thing that may be the key to her existence.
And beyond that, why does her mother want her dead?
Oh my. So much to learn, not counting how to say, "Arete" the term for what she is. Oh, and you aren't going to learn it in the first book of this series. Why do we have to wait?!? Such agony and suspense!
[note to self: breathe. it will help.]
Okay, the first thing is, Arete is pronounced "Ah Reet ay" Not "Ah Reet" as I first thought. How do I know? Well, just trust me on it for now...
I read the author's first series several times. I like the books that much. When I read Discern, I wondered if it would be as good. Well, in my opinion, I think this is by far the best of her writing.
I've read Fablehaven several times, Percy Jackson once, and Harry Potter 6 or 7 times. I lost count. A good story is hard to read without finding yourself lost in the twists and turns a good author takes your mind and heart through as you leave this life and enter another. Andrea Pearson does that to you very nicely, and horribly, and wonderfully, in Discern.
It's nice because there's humanity and love in the book. It's horrible because, well, horror is horrible. It's supposed to be. It's not the kind, however, that leaves you cold and helpless and dark.Read more ›
There are spiders, lots of spiders. I don't like spiders!
This book is about a young girl who is starting college for magic. She has to learn how to use her magic and she is having a difficult time. There is a tad bit of romance with a ruggedly tall dark and handsome guy, but not enough that the story is overshadowed by it. There is friendship, and there is family issues. Glad I'm not related to Nicole's mom.
The story could have used a prequel, but I am sure in following stories the blanks will be filled in. I suggest this book for an older crowd, 15+.
