Severed by Julia Crane and Lizzy Ford

Two sisters with special gifts and an unbreakable bond ... 

Cyena and Tyana were born to powerful parents who are among the ruling class on their planet. Their lives are pampered but isolated, constricted to the city walls in which they were born. 

Fun loving with a rare but powerful mind power, Tyana is accustomed to being treated like a princess and using her influence to get anything she wants – including protecting her sister from the elders and students who look down on her. The opposite of Tyana in most ways, Cyena’s second-class mind skills make others view her as a blemish on the family bloodline. No one but her sister believes in her.

They don’t know that a war is brewing, until it erupts. A class war tears their perfect world a part, leaving them helpless, alone and worse –severed from one another.

Each girl will risk her life to find the other, and each will be challenged to hone her powers in order to survive environments unlike any they’ve ever experienced

My Review:

Cyrena and Tyana are sisters to one of the most powerful families on their planet.  Restricted to the walls of the city, the girls are oblivious to what is going on outside of the walls.   Tyana has the most prestigious power that any could have and that is mind power.  Cyena’s powers are less notable and are considered second class which makes her an outcast in her own family.

When all hell breaks lose and the girls are separated it us to them to figure out how to get back together and to help figure out why things are the way they are.  Being separated, the girls are made to use their powers beyond what they are used too in order to survive and to find each other.

Severed is a great start to a fantastic series.  Both girls are strong in their own ways and it is because of their love for each other that they flourish in a situation that both are unsure of it.  It also because of this situation that both girls must look inside of themselves to figure who they truly are and use that knowledge to help them survive so that they can be reunited again.  Along their journeys the girls lives change and they learn who to trust and whom not too.  Seeing these girls grow up throughout the story I am anxiously awaiting to see what is in store for them in the second book
