Looking For Dei by David A Willson


Fifteen-year-old Nara Dall has never liked secrets. Yet it seems that her life has been filled with them, from the ugly scar on her back to the strange powers she possesses. Her mysterious father refuses to say anything about her origins, and soon, she and her best friend must attend the announcement ceremony, in which youths are tested for a magical gift.

A gifted youth has not been announced in the poor village of Dimmitt for decades. When Nara uncovers the reason, she uses her own powers to make things right. The decision sets her on a path of danger, discovery, and a search for the divine. In the process, she learns the truth about herself and uncovers the biggest secret of all: the power of broken people.

My Thoughts

Looking For Dei was quite an enjoyable book!  I really liked the magic and the world building.  Lately, it seems, most YA fantasy books are becoming more and more alike.  This one didn't have that issue.

This story was unlike any other I have read.  It is refreshing to read a book that is fresh and new.  There was a lot of information (character development, world building, etc.) so the book was info dumpy at times.  However, that is typical of most first books in a series.

Overall, this was a great book and I recommend it to YA fantasy lovers everywhere!

*Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
