Title: Lost: The Caelian Cycle

Synopsis: During WW1 a meteorite crashed releasing a mist that changed the DNA of all who were exposed. One hundred years has passed and society is divided between the norms and the Caelians whose changed DNA awakened dormant gifts called talents. Sadie is over it. She's an orphan, her boyfriend was murdered and she's the only Caelian at St. Vincent's without a talent. Once she turns 18 there will be no place for her in the world. That is until a chance encounter with Kian, a Caelian boy who makes her feel uncomfortable and alive at the same time. Secrets of her past are uncovered and Sadie's latent, rare talent is exposed. With great power comes the hunters hired by an egomaniac who wants to use Sadie's power to establish Caelian dominance. On the run with Kian and her friends, Sadie will have to decide whether to hide or fight. Will Sadie accept her new reality or will she stay lost?
Review: This is an excellent book and I just was gripped from the first line. I could not stop reading this book and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good sci-fi story. This was a gripping story that I would happily read again and again and I would probably buy the physical copy of this book.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
