Cover Reveal "Trapped" / Review: "Severed" by Lizzy Ford & Julia Crane



Title: Trapped (Starwalkers Serial #2) Authors: Lizzy Ford, Julia Crane Release date: Feb 16, 2014 Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20734898-trapped

Summary:

Trapped on the war-riddled planet of Lemuria, Cyena must hide her true identity if she is to survive. She seeks refuge with a small pocket of other elites in hiding, only to find herself in more danger with them than she was on her own. Cyena is one of the only members of the most elite Lemurrian bloodlines to survive the invasion, which makes her a bargaining chip the others want to trade to the insurgents in the hope of buying their own amnesty.

Cyena uncovers their plan and works hard to hone her psychic skills, knowing the same skills that condemned her before the war are all that will save her now.

To complicate matters, Kaydon, her rescuer and the son of the rebellion’s leader, offers her sanctuary. But if she leaves the city with him, she loses any chance of discovering what happened to her sister. If she stays, she risks being killed.

Uncertain who to trust and what to do, Cyena will face untold challenges to find some trace of her sister.

Two sisters with special gifts and an unbreakable bond ... Cyena and Tyana were born to powerful parents who are among the ruling class on their planet. Their lives are pampered but isolated, constricted to the city walls in which they were born. Fun loving with a rare but powerful mind power, Tyana is accustomed to being treated like a princess and using her influence to get anything she wants; including protecting her sister from the elders and students who look down on her. The opposite of Tyana in most ways, Cyena誷 second-class mind skills make others view her as a blemish on the family bloodline. No one but her sister believes in her. They don誸 know that a war is brewing, until it erupts. A class war tears their perfect world a part, leaving them helpless, alone and worse 衧evered from one another. Each girl will risk her life to find the other, and each will be challenged to hone her powers in order to survive environments unlike any they誺e ever experienced.

Review
 
Cyena is feeling the pressure. It's unlike any she has ever felt before. Her fate relies on her gift. She's the first Lemurian ever with two talents. The problem? Both are second class and she comes from an elite high class family. Her father has now taken to getting her paired so that she may become the parent of an elite offspring in hopes she keeps her station in society. Her intended Welon is handsome and she felt lucky that it was him. Now she's not so sure.
 
Tyana has a gifted life. She beautiful, born to powerful elite, and the next Star-walker. Her only problem in life is where the next place is that she can make-out with her God of a bodyguard Ryker. His looks alone make her want things that she shouldn't consider, but that warmth spreads. A Star-walker can have anything they want right?
 
The sisters are polar opposites yet at the heart the same. They would do anything for each other. When no one else believes in Cyena, Tyana is always there to have her back. When Tyana leads with her heart risking wrath, Cyena shows no judgement. They both seem to find the same type of man stimulating whether it is in their best interest remains to be seen.
 
This is a story of social cast and how easily a person can be closed off only in what they are taught which can leave them blinded to the world around them. When the sisters become curious about what is happening, it may be two late.
 
Will they find out how to save the Lemurian blood line?
Is it really worth saving?
 
Two sisters, two fates, two planets
Severed
 
5 Stars from start to finish.
I await the next part of the story. What will happen to the sisters? What is the legend that was mentioned? Does it involve both sisters or only one? There are so many questions and I can't wait to get the answers. Lilly Ford and Julia Crane hit this story out of this world.
