Grace Mackay thought she was normal, a little shy maybe, but no less normal than any other struggling young waitress. But she did not know about the secretive Powers world. She did not know she was the last person on earth with the DNA needed for the Powers’ survival. And she certainly did not know her newest boyfriend, Gregory, was an Anti-Powers prince who intended to break her heart and her bones in no particular order.

But when she discovers that Ben, her best friend and unrequited former crush, is actually her secret Guardian with superhuman powers, Grace’s normal turns a little wacky. And when she learns that she has The Gift, the rare power to heal the injured and resurrect life with her touch, it is official - Grace is a weirdo even in the Powers world.

But what freaks Grace out more than all that is the fact she has feelings for Ben again - and he has feelings for her - which makes Grace’s new normal a lot more complicated.

Grace is your average 20-ish woman, she controls her own destiny. Though she was orphaned early in life, that fact doesn't effect her life in a big way. She has the security of friends for family, and everyone seems to love her. Unfortunately, things aren't always the way they appear. Ben is Grace's best friend, but he harboring secrets that could get thrown right off the friends list, and rebuffing her love while hiding his own feelings in one of them. But, there's more going on than whether or not he can allow himself to love Grace, and it all has to be with the Power, controlling his destiny and hers. When the Anti-Powers enter Grace's life, as her protector, Ben does the only thing he can... he secrets her away... Discovery by Lisa White introduces us to a new world where, once upon a time, Powers really existed. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman... they all have their beginnings somewhere, right? But, when people come to resent those with the Powers, they go into hiding. Until a faction splinters off, and the Anti-Powers were born. It's Ben's job to protect Grace from the Anti-Powers, she has the ability to save both the Powers and the human race, it's all about her DNA, if the Powers are in time.... if they can overcome the Anti-Powers out to annihilate both. Discovery is a lite fantasy read that brings to light how the Powers could have possibly come into being. It was a fun, fast read that I enjoyed immensely! And when I found out the backstory of how Ms. White brought Super Heroes into the picture, it brought me back to the hours upon hours I spent as a child delving into those very worlds, comic books and I have a long history! If you LOVE comic books, you will enjoy this story. If you've ever spent time wondering about how all those worlds came to be, this is the book for you! I highly recommend this book to lite fantasy readers, lite sweet paranormal romance lovers, and enjoyers of the comic book tradition. As well as those readers who love the new genre of New Adult, this is a must read. Five out of five fairy kisses for this reader.

Discovery is a wonderful blend of the very popular "new adult" genre and paranormal romance. The young heroine, Grace, is just beginning her life as a young adult, and she has high hopes for her future and a not-small crush on her best friend, Ben. Then, all of her hopes are dashed when Ben kidnaps her and informs her of the paranormal world she has unknowingly been embroiled in all along. This book had some great moments. My favorite part of Discovery was the references to pop culture (the best example: Stan Lee creating his superheroes to cover for the paranormal beings known as "Powers"). New Adult fans will love Discovery!

Both Young Adult (YA) and New Adult (NA) genres have become very popular in the last five years. Many of these books are dark, and full of very adult themes including sex, drug abuse, and physical violence. Enter Discovery, a YA paranormal book that you can let your younger teens read without fear of exposing them to some of the more “adult” issues. If you were to install a movie rating system for books, Discovery would be PG, something that very few YA paranormals can boast. With an interesting society that includes super-powered beings, and a hero who is handsome and devoted to his heroine, Discovery provides the expected fare for readers of paranormal romance, in a kinder, gentler framework than we normally see. A perfect book for readers looking for more "wholesome" fare.

Discovery by Lisa White is an engaging paranormal tale, geared toward the YA audience. With no explicit sex, I would not hesitate recommending it for an audience ranging from ages 12-13 on. Although geared for the younger set, adults will also enjoy Discovery. Ms. White's world building is excellent, creating a page-turner about young adult superheroes and a beautiful teenage heroine named Grace, who straddles the supernatural world and the "real" world of ordinary humans. Grace's friend, Ben, and her new boyfriend, Gregory, struggle for Grace's favor as she tries to find her way. The twists and turns of these relationships are deftly handled by Ms. White, and she throws in a few curves I didn't see coming. It is delicious when an author can do that! The ending will leave you satisfied, but wanting more, and I'm happy to report that the sequel is forthcoming. Kudos to Ms. White for creating such an imaginative read!
