Zoe Masterson always felt like an outsider. She’s different from everyone else in her rural West Virginia town: destruction and mayhem follow her around like a rabid dog. After a mysterious fire leads to a death, Zoe ends up in what looks like a mental hospital—but is it?
At Weston State Hospital, she discovers that the world as she knows it is an illusion. So much more exists beneath the surface of life: races of people, Guardians, Assassins. . .and the one person she is destined to love forever, all caught up in a battle for control of this hidden world that could cost her the people she loves most.
My Thoughts: M.R. Ferguson created a secret society of Endowed, hidden from human eyes, and full of powers in The Praefortis. The characters were interesting and watching their interactions were amazing. The book was full of action, but even when there wasn't a fight going on I was drawn in. Those were the moments that the characters grew and their relationships developed.
There were many amazing characters throughout the book. I enjoyed each glimpse as a new race or a new character was introduced. Zoe was strong and stubborn. I liked her character a lot, and I definitely loved reading about her introduction and development in the world of the Endowed. The other Endowed are awesome, and their powers are amazing.
Ferguson really made a very diverse world in The Praefortis. She gave back story and developed so many characters. The plot was a wild ride that I loved. I was pulled in right from the start and just couldn't put it down. I would love to read more about these characters and this world, I hope that Ferguson will make this a series, but it is a perfect stand alone novel, too.
