BUAN: THE PERFECT MORTALS by Reece Bridger.
I received a free ebook copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
This book is in dire need of a professional proof reader/ editor. I found a multitude of typos and extra words that were unnecessary and distracting.
The story itself is complex and the setting is detailed enough to maintain the reader’s interest.
The plot centers around the four Harmon siblings.
Description from Goodreads:
“During a ceasefire of a war that has taken more lives than could be considered just, there are shadows of betrayal and deceit lurking in the rays of the morning sun. Something is lingering on the horizon, and it’s hell-bent on destruction, despair and death.
Whatever it may be, it’s driven the Goddess to some very desperate measures.
Life for the Harmon siblings has been hard enough, but now they face responsibilities that they never asked for. They never asked for power. They never asked for a world of monsters. They never asked to come face-to-face with demons, the corrupted of their own people, or their own mortality.
But that is just what they will have to do. They are the chosen heroes of Cornelia, the final hope for order and sanity, the last line of defence against the darkness.
They are the Buan.”
The description of this book makes it sound much better than it actually is. However the fact that the author is only 20 years old can account for the generic plot.
I did enjoy the idea of the four siblings each receiving powers that coincide with their personalities.
If this book had a better editor and proofreader I would have given it an additional star. However, I found it very distracting that almost every page contains at least one error.
The second book in this series dies sound interesting and perhaps with more experience under his belt, the author will be more concise and careful in his execution of the sequel.
I rate this book as 2.5 out of 5 stars.
