I had the ebook and I also listened to some on Audible. Love that the Boxset had the first 6 books of this series. There is a total of 12 in this series and then 6 or so more with a spin-off series; which is really still this series because it’s the same main character, so there’s 12 more books to read to get the full story. Then more spin-off books with some other characters too. The narrator was good; her accent was a little weird at times, but overall she did a great job. I enjoyed the listen. It was nice having the ebook too though.
Overall, the series was entertaining and fun! Love all the powers the characters have! Some really cool tatùs (magical tattoos); healing, fire, electricity, super speed, plus so many more! Loved all of that! There’s also a super sweet romance! This is mostly YA, but there are some light adult elements in these first 6 books. I read all 6 books in a row, and I didn’t get sick of the story, so that a major plus. The story doesn’t start out very original, but it has enough unique elements throughout the series to make the book its own story. It can get a little repetitive and there were times the characters should’ve know something they found out in a previous book, but didn’t. Still overall, lots of interesting ideas going on. I’ll do a brief review of each of the books. There will probably be spoilers in some of the reviews for the previous books in the series.
This one starts out with 15 year old Rae finding out she’s supposed to get a tatú that will give her a magic power when she turns 16. Her parents are dead and she’s been living with her uncle and aunt, but since her 16th birthday is coming soon, she is sent to a special school with other people like her. Rae is dealing with learning about this whole new world and it doesn’t help that her dad wasn’t exactly a nice guy, so she’s treated poorly by some. She does meet some friends though, and has a sexy mentor in Devon. Unfortunately, he’s not single and 2 tatús can’t be together anyway. This one is very YA.
