[good reads] winterborne
January 22, 2017
Continuing my digital ibooks ipad binge, I decided to read another freebie. This time it was young adult novel Winterborne (Universe Unbound: Book One) by Augusta Blythe. This book plays into the whole magical worlds idea that’s extremely popular right now. These worlds happen to be filled with creatures like leprechauns, bloodhounds, and humans that turn into animals. I thought I knew where this book was going at first, but it turns out to be a little bit more interesting near the end with an interesting twist of events. Maybe other readers would have guessed the ending, but I did not though I did think the string of events was strange about half way through.
In this series, all members of the Winterborne family are born members of the Universals. They are capable of great powers once they reach their seventeenth birthday. The two main characters are Loie and Mia. Born on the same day at the same hospital, they became like family due to unfortunate circumstances. They’re more tightly bound than the reader realizes at first though. I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out why!
