Steel Lily: 1 (The Periodic Series)

Steel Lily - Megan Curd Also on my blog Chibi ReaderBy now I’ve read my share of dystopias. The Hunger Games were my introduction to the genre and then only few other series managed to keep me a fan of this type of books. It was with great joy that when I finished reading Steel Lily I just wanted to read book 2 to be ready by my side so I could just pick it up and start reading it, too. Believe me when I tell you that Steel Lily is like a piece of candy that you’ll love and won’t be able to stop eating. Steel Lily is about Avery, a girl who has the ability of making water turn to steam and because of that she is called an Elementalist. Basically. everyone lives in a world where WWIII has taken place and destroyed everything. Energy is not the same and they live off the steam the Elementalists make, or so is thought (no spoilers here ;) !!!!). When faced with a certain situation, Avery and her friend Alice have to move out of the Dome they in. And that’s when things begin to move forward and give way to a beautiful and not so smooth journey in Avery’s world.Avery kind of won me over right in the first character so she might have clouded my judgement of the book from the beginning (I’m obviously joking but I really liked her!). She just says whatever she wants and doesn’t back down, even when older students or even teachers at school make fun of her or try to make her do things. I just loved the first chapter because there she shows her personality right away and we learn that there is no bullshit with her. Oh, how so many girls could learn from her in real life…We meet so many interesting characters throughout the book, too! Oh guys, the love interest. Yeeshh, he is up there in my book boyfriends list, and that’s kind of a tough list to enter! Jaxon is kind of different from other boys in books. From his physical description he would probably be like a secondary character or the bestie, at least that’s what I think from other books I’ve read and that’s one of the things that make him unique. He says what he thinks, just like Avery and I just want to see what will happen to them in the future. Then there is Sari and Alice who become major characters in the plot development. I loved Sari but Alice, Avery’s best friend from the dome, annoyed me some times… I would talk about many more characters but they are for you to discover in case you choose to read the book.There were not one but several plot twists (YAY!). They don’t make your head hurt, don’t worry, they are really well introduced and only make the story even more intricate at the same time that it makes you even more entranced with it.Steel Lily is, for now, one of my favourite dystopias and for any fan out there who likes this type I can only say: read it and prepare yourself to be enchanted. *eARC provided by the author in exchange of an honest review*
