Powerless

By Lauren Roberts
Powerless by Lauren  Roberts digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

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 in order 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 overly observant since she was a child, Paedyn poses as a Psychic in the crowded city, blending in with the Elites as best she can in order to stay alive and out of trouble. Easier said than done.
When Paeydn unsuspectingly saves one of Ilyas 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.

Slightly Smiling Face“I really enjoyed this book and what a great 1st release! I’m only sad about my timing having read this one and The Serpent at the same time - they have a very similar premise and I wish I had read this later or earlier! I would have enjoyed it even more! Kai & Payden are a very interesting couple and I am very curious to see what’s next in store for them in Reckless 💙”

Thinking Face“Though I commend the author for writing and publishing her book, I could not love this novel. It is no easy feat to write let alone complete a book which is why I gave it an automatic 3 stars, but if I had rated the story alone, it would have been 2. This was the type of story that makes you think “I have seen this before.” Page after page after page. And I understand, many stories today reuse similar story plots or structures, but this felt too much like a copy and paste of Hunger Games and Red Queen for me to enjoy. I won’t lie, I hate finished this book b/c I can’t bring myself to DNF books. In all honesty, I wish I had. Nevertheless, I see potential in this author and might check out the sequel in hopes it gets better. A second chance.”
Bad writingLack of diversityPredictableUnengaging charactersUnsatisfying plot
