Aversion: Review & Giveaway

41o5z7kXQHL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_

Take a moment, think back to every reckless decision you’ve ever made. Sneaking out late after your parents grounded you, ditching class to hang out with friends or getting fake ids to get into a popular club. Now think about every sensible decision you’ve ever made, the split decisions we make and in hindsight we are grateful to have averted disaster. Are we really in control of our actions?

Gemma Green is not your everyday loner at high school, she is a part of an ancient secret society called Averters. Averters are our mortal guardians and their sole purpose in life is to keep us from making reckless decisions that would yield lifelong consequences. Gemma has trained all her life to be a competent Averter. As the only female of her kind, she must work twice as hard and trust no one. After her first Aversion leaves traces of an error, she slowly understands all that she is and the many secrets of the Averter society. Russ is a handsome, popular athlete at school and Gemma’s new-found temptation. Gemma feels a strange connection with Russ, one she doesn’t intend to explore. Gemma soon learns you can’t out run fate and even an Averter can be surprised.

 

Aversion is the first book in the mentalist series by author Kenechi Ugodu. Aversion is an action-packed young adult fantasy romance; readers are transported in the mind of Gemma Green the only female Averter of her kind. If you think puberty was scary, try adding the complications supernatural changes. The chemistry between the main characters Russ and Gemma is  reminiscent of  first love. It shows love at its purest and most innocent form. Aversion tackles themes like self-discovery, growing up and doing the right thing. Each character was carefully crafted and the small town Sandes became a real place.

Sandes is a small town where most of the story takes place. Kenechi described this quiet town appealing to the reader’s five senses. I can smell the stench of an old cafe and I can describe the feeling of getting an ice-cream sundae at a popular hangout.

If you are a paranormal fantasy junkie and you’re looking for a unique fix look no further. Aversion is a beautifully written story with lessons applicable to real life. Come join Gemma and Russ on their many adventures. Welcome to the real world where Averters are the only one saving us from a curse and a blessing, free will.
