Descendants by Rae Else

There are lots of stories about the children of gods. But what about those cursed by the gods, and their descendants...

El, a seventeen-year-old has inherited an ancient and deadly power. She loses control of it, causing a horrific accident, and becomes the prey of a secret organisation known as the Order.

Forced from her family and home, she hides in plain sight amidst the crowds of London, and is thrust into a world that she never knew existed; one full of arete: beings who possess extraordinary powers like hers. As she learns more about the arete world, the line between friend and foe becomes dangerously blurred.

Descendants is the first book in The Arete Series: a Young Adult, Urban Fantasy trilogy by Rae Else.

OH MY HOT FUDGE SUNDAE!!! Talk about stepping off in it. Whew! This is one page turning bombshell. I was captivated from the beginning and held until the last word. It has all the action, drama, fear, violence and most of all strength. The characters are well developed and believable. Their personalities are unique and complex with multi layers. The scenes are so vivid and descriptive it paints a fantastic backdrop that really makes the storyline pop. The twists and turns as well as some unexpected surprises that keeps your attention on the pages as the story unfolds. I really enjoyed following the characters along as they grew into a vision they would soon become. I can't wait to see what Rae has for us next. Rae did an incredible job bringing this read to life flawlessly. Great job Rae, thanks for sharing this awesome read with us.
