Chela's twin brother, Micah, is in a coma, she is determined to find out what happened to him, she knows the Tainted's are behind his fall and she will will stop at nothing to help him.
Now the Tainted's are after her, they want her for who she is and what her memories hide. Chela's mother was an Epiclesium, making Chela and her brother one's too. However, living in Castle Hayne's they must hide their identity. They live in a society ran by Tribunal, where their every move and decision is watched.
Chela is soon caught using magic, which is illegal and is sent to Minders Camp but first she must face the Governors Sword Champion at SwordFest, which is where she meets Faris and Seth. Both Hot and both of the Angel blood, one a Tainted, the other a Caducean.
On top of everything else, Chela has been chosen to defeat the Beast, who the citizens of Castle Hayne fears most. But once she is face to face with the Beast she sees him for who he really is and not the monster he is made to be.
Chela risks her life to save her friends and love ones at all costs. She's not about to let Tainted's or a corrupted government stand in her way and she's not about to back down.
KaSonndra Leigh did awesome, I love the characters in this story, I felt like I could connect with them on some level, except maybe some of the Tainted's just a little too crooked for me but that's the point, she made you feel angry, sad and even made you're heart swell up at the really mushy parts, she did an amazing job and I can't wait to read the sequel.
The book starts off in full force. We are introduced to a ton of characters, and a ton of future world terminology. I have no idea what anything is, and its not really explained very well. For the first part of the book I was very confused. Because everything was just kind of thrown at me I had to keep rereading parts, and I kept getting the secondary characters mixed up. I was about ready to give this book 2 stars until it hit its stride.
The longer I stayed with the book the better it got. The more things started clicking into place. The more the characters started connecting with me, and the more interesting the story got. The last 100 pages or so saved the book for me. The action was definitely action filled.
I think this book could use work on world building, character building, and general clarity. It was often so fast paced that I just couldn't keep up, which made me not care if I did. Overall though, a decent read once you get through the beginning.
This book is about a girl, Chela, who is related to the angels and is trying to solve the mystery of her brother's accident. She meets a lot of characters along the way and has powers that she never knew she had.
I am breaking my own rule when rating this book. I admit I was unable to finish it. Usually when that happens, I give a book one star. However, the strength in this book is the fact that it is obvious that the author has a broad imagination. I can sense that there is an interesting plot that is in Leigh's head, although I don't quite understand it.
I wasn't able to finish this book because of the choppiness of the prose. And it's odd because there are moments where there are paragraphs of elegance. But because of the oddity of this, it is hard to get a clear sense of what faction is against who and why and how to truly delineate the different type of magical folk. Plot-wise, the main character, Chela, is infuriating because she makes obvious mistakes that she already knows are mistakes and then gets angry when she gets in trouble. She also has a love interest that seemed incredibly similar to the antagonist (I will leave this vague as to not be a spoiler).
I do think there is promise of an interesting plot, but because of this issues, as it stands, the text is hard to get through. I think with a strong editor, this book could be greatly improved.
By KaSonndra Leigh
I read this novel as a chapter a day read, and let me tell you, it was really difficult to hold back and not race on through! The last five chapters I did read in one setting-I simply could not wait longer.
This is a very complex, incredibly well-thought-out, urban fantasy/paranormal/supernatural/alchemical/scientific/dystopian story, which I am happy is to be the first in a series-because there are a lot of secrets, multiple characters, and backstory of which I wish to read more! There is so much content in this book, a fully-imagined and fully-articulated world-building, much to be admired and enjoyed. Set in a future area which we today would consider eastern North Carolina, society following "the Tidal Wars" is very restricted, according to genetics rather than by wealth or merit. Life is as rigid as during the Middle Ages, and those "without" (commoners) are restricted to living outside the walled enclaves. Those within the walls are subject to the governmental entity of the enclave, and the border guards and "dark soldiers." It is much worse than the Orwellian creations of "1984." Even in such a society, though, rebellion exists, and here it takes the form of descendants of angels-both the good and the fallen.
I won't say more because I don't want to reveal any of this totally complex and astounding novel-I'll just say-if you're read it, well, read it again. If you've missed out so far-what are you waiting for? "When Copper Suns Fall" rocks!!
