Discovery Blog Tour: Review Stop


By: Lisa White
Now Available!
Publisher: Crimson Romance
Discovery on Goodreads here.
Grace Mackay thought she was normal, a little shy maybe, but no less normal than any other struggling young waitress.  But she did not know about the secretive Powers world.  She did not know she was the only key to the Powers’ survival.  And she certainly did not know her newest boyfriend, Gregory, was an Anti-Powers prince who intended to break her heart and her bones in no particular order.
But when she discovers that Ben, her best friend and unrequited former crush, is actually her secret Guardian with superhuman powers, Grace’s normal world turns upside down.  And when she learns that she has the Gift, the rare power to heal the injured and resurrect life with her touch, it is official – Grace is a weirdo even in the Powers world.  But what freaks Grace out more than all that is the fact she has feelings for Ben again – and he has feelings for her – which makes Grace’s new normal a lot more complicated.
Discovery is the first book in the Council of Powers trilogy and is available at all major eBook retailers.
My Thoughts:
Gotta love Superheros!

I really enjoyed Lisa's first book in her Council of Powers trilogy. There was a lot of story and the characters were all well developed. What I really appreciated was that the evil guys WERE actually the bad guys, no shades of grey in this trilogy!

I loved the relationship between Grace and Ben and how protective he was over her. Grace is a great heroine and a genuinely likeable character, and Ben was a perfect partner for her. But than we have the gorgeous and charming Gregory, who broke my heart. That's all I'm going to say about him.

There were a few factors about Discovery that kind of irked me a bit. The main one was the narration, Discovery is told from multiple perspectives and I got a bit confused with who was who within the first quarter of Discovery. I think I would have preferred to have the story completely narrated from Grace's first or third person narration. Another minor factor that I found distracting, was the age of the main character and two best friends. They're all suppose to be in their early to mid 20s, but I honestly kept forgetting this fact because while reading the dialogue between them all, they seemed to be better suited for senior high school students. But with that said, I still really enjoyed the interaction between these "Three Amigos" and truly felt the comradery between them all.

Overall, I would recommend Discovery to those who enjoy a YA read with a healthy combination of fantasy, action and romance!

Happy Reading!!!
