BOOK REVIEW: Dissever (Unbinding fate #1) by Colee Firman

Goodreads Description:

Addison Sanders is used to spending her days in the snow-capped mountains snowboarding and practicing combat at grandfathers centuries old estate. But all that comes to a screeching halt when she wakes up to find the entire estate has been moved to an amazing tropical location, right in the middle of a busy tourist town on the ocean. 

After meeting Tanner on the beach one night, everything Addy’s life was built around changes. He’s smart, funny, covered in tattoos, and completely not her type.

Humans shouldn't be able to see into her world, but somehow Tanner can. That makes him dangerous and against her better judgment, Addy can't stay away from him.

At the same time, a guy she grew up with who never gave her a second glance can’t get enough of her. Gage is tall, blond, gorgeous, and not human. He has plenty of girls vying for his attention, so she has no clue what he wants with her. That’s got her pretty suspicious of his motives.

With her grandfather acting as the Overseer for an ancient group of human-like people called Akori, her life is already complicated. But when he dies, things get downright ugly.

As the last living Sanders, Addy is forced to try to claim her grandfather’s position. Instead of inheriting his role as Overseer, a strange Akori symbol appears on her neck. It’s a mark no human should be able to carry. 

Addy discovers her family was deceived into serving the Akori for the last 250 years. The mark leads her to a stranger who may turn out to be the key to ending her family’s centuries old burden. 

With her grandfather gone and the power and secrets of her family up for grabs, placing her trust in anyone could lead to disaster. Betrayed by old friends and leery of new ones—she’s left to cut through the lies and deception to get to the truth.

Addy discovers that sometimes its better not knowing and misery really does love company in Dissever—Book One of the Unbinding Fate Series.

Also available in the Kindle Store - Bonds are broken and new connections are forged in Sanctify—Book Two of the Unbinding Fate Series.

Mary's review:

I was given this book from the author for an honest review.

Best part of book: WOW!  This is a much different story than others that I have read.  I loved Addy!  She was an amazing character, through and through.  At first, I thought she was just a teenager who just wanted to please everyone, but she was so much more.  She truly cared for her family, friends and her heritage.  On top of that, the "human" Tanner can see her world.  Now, that should be impossible, but he can.  Oh, but I can't forget to talk about Gage.  I think of him as Addy's protector but there is more to it.  Then there is Matt and Kim, friends of Addy and a big part of the story.

Now, I can't spoil everything but there are SOME GREAT twist and turns in this story!  I loved it and the action that came with it.

Not so great about the book:  The ending was a little bit confusing because of what happened, but I am excited to see what book 2 will bring in the adventures of Addy and characters.
