Looking for Dei by David A. Willson
I love the cover! If I saw this cover in the library, it would instantly grab my attention and make me want to read it! The author wrote great imagery and the world felt real, as if I was in it. The plot development was very smooth. I really enjoyed the pace of this book, which held my interest.
I was not interested in some of the perspectives of the characters, like the soldiers, and in some scenes I really wanted more dialogue. However, I was extremely hooked on Nara and Kayna's story. The contrast between Nara and Kayna is striking, considering that they are twins. Nara takes life for granted while Kanya finds joy in taking lives.
The concept of the "broken" ones having special gifts is an interesting twist that I enjoyed, sort of the opposite of real life, but also an inspiration. Mykel was an interesting character, as was the unique concept of being cursed. I liked how Mykel was willing to sacrifice himself for Nara, and their bond is special.
I am hoping for a sequel in the coming years! The ending wrapped up this book, but left room for an extension.
I recommend this book!
