Powerless by Lauren Roberts digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A New York Times bestseller!

This sparkling edition includes a special case stamping, bonus content, and a teaser to book two in this heart-pounding series!

Perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, this young adult fantasy follows the forbidden romance between a powerful prince and an ordinary girl as they try to survive their kingdom’s grueling laws pitting them against each other.

She is the very thing he’s spent his whole life hunting.
He is the very thing she’s spent her whole life pretending to be.

Only the extraordinary belong in the kingdom of Ilya—the exceptional, the empowered, the Elites. The powers these Elites have possessed for decades were graciously gifted to them by the Plague, though not all were fortunate enough to both survive the sickness and reap the reward. Those born Ordinary are just that—ordinary. And when the king decreed that all Ordinaries be banished to preserve his Elite society, lacking an ability suddenly became a crime—making Paedyn Gray a felon by fate and a thief by necessity.

Surviving in the slums as an Ordinary is no simple task, and Paedyn knows this better than most. Having been trained by her father to be keenly observant since she was a child, Paedyn poses as a Psychic in the crowded city, blending in with the Elites as best she can to stay alive and out of trouble…easier said than done.

When Paeydn unsuspectingly saves one of Ilya’s princes, she finds herself thrown into the Purging Trials. The brutal competition exists to showcase the Elites’ powers—the very thing Paedyn lacks. If the Trials and the opponents within them don’t kill her, the prince she’s fighting feelings for certainly will if he discovers what she is…completely Ordinary.

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“Start of the book had me in a choke hold, where the final act did not. I loved the banter between Kai and Paeydn. This slow burn was almost everything. Almost had me laughing out loud. My heart goes out to Kitt more though for how everything went down in the end. I have such disdain for that trope; it’s the reason it lost a star for me. Did not expect that ending, as I had hoped for something better. Will be reading the sequel because I love the premise of the Ordinary fighting back against the powerful elites.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book was AMAZING!! There are truly very few times when I have had this much fun reading a book. It was fun, it was witty, it was cute. Y3ni the romance had me giggling, blushing and kicking my feet in the air. I truly LOVED it. My only problem with it was that the plot did not feel fleshed out enough. So it was more romance centered than actual plot centered which is okay but just was not what I was expecting going in.”
