Meet your new favourite heroine. Blue Brennan is witty, kick ass and you’re going to love her.

Blue Brennan is jaded and bitter despite her pinup girl looks and quick wit. Night after night, she scours the Seattle club scene looking for someone or something to fill the emptiness inside.

When she meets the mysterious Kasey, her world stops… literally. He claims she has the ability to control time and stuns her even further when he reveals his own gifts.

Blue is inexplicably drawn to Kasey and reluctantly enters his world filled with a new breed of humanity. They’re misfits like her, blessed or cursed with powerful abilities, struggling to hide their differences from the rest of society.
Then the group discovers a nameless, faceless sociopath with nightmarish powers; and he’s coming for Blue. She’s left reeling when they discover her gifts are the key to defeating his terrible evil and saving them all.

Now she must race against the clock to harness her own powers and save her new friends. Can she be more than a renegade? Can she be a hero too?

This book is fantastic. It has tons of action, it had my gripping my kindle for dear life on more than one occasion. I found this book a really different one to read, it’s urban fantasy but that also doesn’t feel like a complete fit. It mixes science fiction, adult lit and a few other things in between.

The cover is also a lovely one, and one I feel fits the book really well. Despite the fact that the story is about people with supernatural abilities, the whole book feels very realistic and believable. I really liked the characters and enjoyed getting to know them. I don’t want to give too much away, but they’re all very interesting and complex. Blue is probably one of my new favourite heroines. She’s quite witted and stubborn and a really fascinating character.

The Blue Effect is an exciting start to what I’m sure is going to be a fantastic series. If you’re a fan of young adult/urban fantasy, you’re definitely going to want to add this to your wish list. Your only problem will be waiting for the release of book two. ( )
