For fans of Matched, The Hunger Games, X-Men, and Blade Runner comes a tale of a magical city divided, a political rebellion ignited, and a love that was meant to last forever. Book One of the Mystic City Novels.
Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.

I was really looking forward to reading Mystic City, especially when the description referenced Blade Runner, but unfortunately this book fell flat. I liked the idea behind it and everything, but couldn't help but compare the whole memory wipe scenario to another book I read called Renegade by J.A. ...
I really wanted to like this book. The ideas, the mystics, the agin and technology and futuristic New York...sounded awesome. But there was far too much exposition, description, apparel listings. The dialogue wasn't believable and felt forced. The descriptions of characters' appearances got boring r...
This review is also on Living for the BooksI'm getting so sick of books being compared to The Hunger Games. Especially when the only thing they have in common with The Hunger Games is that the book is dystopian. I have a lot of issues with this book but I think I'll start with the positives. First o...
