Book Review for “Rouge”- YA Urban Fantasy

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this book. It is a girl’s “superhero” story, not that I don’t think guys will like it as well. There is some swearing, and some sexual content, so I recommend for ages 17 and up. I am looking forward to the second book. This one pretty much lays the foundation of where the “superpower” comes from and who the enemy is. Great characters, only I have to admit I wasn’t thrilled with the love interest, he was a little to weak for me. But the door is left open to some interesting relationships in the series. I give it 4 stars. Would have gotten a 5 without the swearing and the sex. So if that kind of thing doesn’t bother you, then add a star.

Book Review for “Runners” YA Dystopian

I was given a copy of “Runner” by the author, Sharon Sant, in exchange for an honest review. This is a YA Dystopian novel who’s main character, Elijah, meets up with a group of ‘runners’ who are trying to stay a step ahead of those chasing them. This story is about teamwork, loyalty and how a group of people can become a family. I enjoyed the story and would recommend it for ages pre-teen and up. Sharon Sant has an easy writing style and a way with characters. I would definitely read more of this author’s work. I give the book 5 stars for YA readers.
