I cannot wait for the next one. Mystic City has the magic of the Harry Potter series, the forbidden love of the Twilight books, and the dystopian future of the Hunger Games. From page one I was on the edge of my seat. The plot is so exciting; filled with action, betrayal, family drama, political intrigue, and fantastical happenings. I'm a fan. ( )

Mystic City made my reading list as soon as I saw the beautiful cover. Little did I know that Theo Lawrence was about to blow my mind. I was under the impression I knew where this story would take me, but I was pleasantly surprised to figure out that I actually had no idea.

Aria wakes with a lack of memories. According to everyone around her, Thomas is the love of her life and she fought against all odds to be with him. It makes perfect sense since they are now engaged to be married. However Aria can't shake the feeling that things are just...off.

I can't deny that the characters are what really drew me in. While Aria isn't the type of protagonist I'm usually drawn to, I did find her interesting. The fact that she was willing to question things, even when she was assured on all sides that her memories were fine, made me smile. Of course once Hunter came into the picture you couldn't have stopped me reading if you wanted to. Funny, kind, and absolutely intriguing, Hunter is a character to swoon over. You'll get no spoilers from me, but their story is wonderful.

My one wish for Mystic City was that the world building was a little more solid. Let's be honest, a futuristic New York is just too delicious not to describe! I was teased with a look at a world that is split in two. The rich live above the filth, and the poor in it. New gadgets and technology rule the day, and people are constantly monitored no matter where they go. I really wanted more showing and less telling. When Lawrence was describing, it was gorgeous. All I wanted was more. I'm hoping that the next in the series will help me further dive into this new setting.

Despite any small qualms that I may have had with the world building though, I really enjoyed Mystic City! I blame my Fantasy addled brain for the lack of five stars, because quite honestly the story line and characters together are more than enough to keep you reading this book. Readers of dystopian, fantasy and even romance will all find something to love here. I will happily admit that I am eager for more! ( )

Read my overall review of the whole series so far here! Spoiler Free!

I won't lie, the only reason I picked this book up or at least considered reading it was because of the "fans of X-men" line--I can't help but be a little curious about a book when a publisher uses that line. So I went in with weary expectations, only to come out of it all with my mind blown and me counting down the endless number of days until the sequel.

This book was FANTASTIC! One of my favourite reads this year for sure!

It just had everything I want in a book: A rich, twisting plot full of drama that wasn't very predictable (there are clues along that way that you pick up on but there were some things that I happened that surprised me!); a dash of romance; a strong female lead; mystery and a whole lot of suspense and action. I had a very hard time putting this down at the end!

It can be worrisome when a book is compared or suggested to fans of another series. I often find the new books are carbon copies of the "fans of BLANK" books so it can be disheartening when you actually read it and it doesn't meet your high expectations. I can happily say that this book was unlike anything I have read--sure it takes similar plot concepts from other stories but the way that they are weaved all together makes this book totally original and a joy to read.

Overall: I know that this book gets mixed reviews on Goodreads but I think for those who want to try something a little different, this one is worth a shot! It is hard to say anything else without giving too much away but fans of dystopian who love a good mystery plot will LOVE this!

After finishing this book I thought to myself... "This Author is a genius."

I honestly have not read a more intriguing, unique, captivating Young Adult book since the Hunger Games. It was everything I look for in a book and more. There were magical elements that take you to a new place and let's you escape reality. There was also a pretty intense forbidden romance.



I was sucked in from page one and didn't want it to end. The twists and turns had me on the edge of my seat and the secrets/lies held me captive. Hunter was definitely my favorite character in the book. I loved how he had to remind Aria of the love they once had. Together they had to trust one another and go against everything they stood for to save the world they live in. It was an Amazing love story that brought so much to the table!



I can't wait to get my hands on book 2 and see what happens next. ( )
