Vicky’s Review of Severed by Lizzy Ford and Julia Crane

severed ecover

About the Book:

Two sisters with special gifts and an unbreakable bond …

Cyena and Tyana were born to powerful parents who are among the ruling class on their planet. Their lives are pampered but isolated, constricted to the city walls in which they were born.

Fun loving with a rare but powerful mind power, Tyana is accustomed to being treated like a princess and using her influence to get anything she wants – including protecting her sister from the elders and students who look down on her. The opposite of Tyana in most ways, Cyena’s second-class mind skills make others view her as a blemish on the family bloodline. No one but her sister believes in her.

They don’t know that a war is brewing, until it erupts. A class war tears their perfect world a part, leaving them helpless, alone and worse –severed from one another.

Each girl will risk her life to find the other, and each will be challenged to hone her powers in order to survive environments unlike any they’ve ever experienced.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this book. The book was short.. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of story there. I think it was neat that each sister’s story was written by one of the author’s. I of course could not tell who wrote which side-  Both sister’s stories were well written, and blended well. In this first book in the The Starwalkers Series we meet Tyana and Cyena. One sister is destined for greatness, while the other is constantly looked down upon. Sometimes we find that the life we thought we knew.. has been sheltered so much that we have no clue what is going on in the “Real” world. It was a little different in the fact that the chapter’s each have  a different sister’s side, But being written by 2 people I understand why it’s that way. There is a cliffhanger at the end.. OMG ! I would definitely recommend this book. And I am looking forward to the next in the Starwalker Series.
