Format: Kindle Edition
This tale encompasses people who look like humans except they have blue tattoo-like figures on their hands, which glow under certain circumstances and they are called Akori. Akori never die but if they are wounded severely they "scatter." That is they disappear for many years and then one day they appear once again looking just the same age as when they scattered. Then there are humans who die naturally and don't have the paranormal powers of the Akori. Last but not least are the Mesen who are Akori who have rebelled against the ones residing in Tremain, which is a large estate, usually situated in some cold, snowy region but at the time of this story, it has been re-located in a warm area of the U.S. on the ocean. Addison Sanders, called Addy, is a human who is the granddaughter of Fate, a human and also Overseer of Tremain. There are many characters in this story, and most of them are young adults, with romance, special powers and many conflicts between the Akori and the Mesen thrown in for good measure. The plot is unique and well written with many unusual and unexpected twists. Although it is considered in the YA genre, older adults will enjoy it also if you like sci fi type stories. I enjoyed it and it is a page turner.

SUMMARY:

Overall I have to say I enjoyed this book, although it was a little slow getting into. I found myself putting it down and not picking it up again for several days until I was about 1/3 of the way into it. However, as hard as I tried to follow along, it all seemed a little confusing to me. There was not enough explanation throughout the story about who each of these characters really were and what their roles were. For example, I get that the Overseer is in charge...but in charge of what? Do the Akori report to him? Does he make important decisions? And what is the history behind the Akori; who are they? What did they use their powers for before it was taken away? And what, exactly, do all the friends do in the estate besides "hang out" and train? The action scene at the end was very intense and I found myself grimacing at times, however I was frustrated by not being able to follow all the information that was revealed at once. Also, I wished the story had not cut off so quickly. I love a good cliffhanger, but with all the build-up and new characters being introduced right at the end, I expected at least some sort of immediate resolution before the characters jumped right into another predicament (leading to the second book).

CONS:

There were the typical spelling and grammatical errors that you find in self-published books, enough that they really slowed the flow of reading. Since the author has also released Books 2 and 3 in this saga, I would think the errors in book 1 should have been corrected by now. The author totally overuses italics in an attempt to add emphasis.

It's a new twist on a tale of immortals intermixing with humans. LOVE the hook at the beginning, and the characters were easy to relate to. The author writes well and has a firm grasp of how to keep a reader interested with the twists and turns of this new mythological tale. Worth the read, and looking forward to reading the next in the series. Highly Recommended.

Loved it, the mythology in this book was so unique & fascinating. I loved getting all the background on all the elements involved and I can't wait to learn more in the next book.

Addy is a great MC and I really liked her. She is pretty BA & funny, so she is easy to relate to. I liked Gage even though his & Addy's relationship started really awkwardly. The great thing about that though is that it made it very real & relatable. Of course I am a sucker for a best friend romance, so I loved them together. There were some great scenes between the two of them that were very intimate & then I realized they never even kissed. I love how protective & sweet Gage is. The ending left me so sad because their relationship didn't get very far before things got in the way. Tanner freaks me out a little still, his & Addy's relationship is weird to me. Addy claims they are just friends, but I feel like they are way more "friendly" than they should be. I don't make it a point to cozy up to/touch guy friends, but maybe that is just me. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next book, especially since they have a weird connection. There were some great secondary characters that were great too; Jax is pretty interesting.

Overall I really enjoyed the book; the plot & the characters were all very engaging. Can't wait to read the next one, I definitely recommend it.

*Thanks to the author for sending me a copy for review!

Addy loves texting, shopping, and hanging out with her best friends, but she's not your average teenager. Growing up on the Tremain estate, she has been groomed from a young age to take over the family job of Overseer for a magical race of beings called the Akori. The only problem is that this job has never fallen to a female in the hundreds of years the Sanders family has served the Akori.

As her grandfather ails, he shifts the estate one last time to a pristine beach in Florida. Considering that the usual locales are frigid and harsh, Addy is thrilled with the move, but there's a problem. The estate has landed here before, and Addy learns that the move had little to do with chance or her grandfather's desire for a little sun.

Besides growing concerns over her grandfather's health and her looming obligations should he pass away, Addy finds herself drawn to a mysterious stranger who is in turn drawn to the estate against his will. But as their friendship grows, so does the interest of her childhood friend, Gage.

Overall, the story is well-written, the dialog flows naturally, and the plot is fresh and easy to follow. The history of the Akori and Addy's family involvement are woven into the story without lingering too long on back story in any one place. I also love how Addy and her friends are, for the most part normal teenagers, even those who are not human. There are no vampires or werewolves in this story, but the immortal and powerful Akori provide a unique stand-in for those who enjoy that genre, while providing enough of a change for those who weary of it.

I highly recommend Dissever to anyone who likes ya fantasy set in the modern day.
