There are lots of stories about the children of gods. But what about those cursed by the gods, and their descendants…
El, a seventeen-year-old, has inherited an ancient and deadly power. She loses control of it, causing a horrific accident, and becomes the prey of a secret organisation known as the Order.
Forced from her family and home, she hides in plain sight amidst the crowds of London, and is thrust into a world she never knew existed; one full of arete: beings with extraordinary powers like hers. As she learns more about the arete world, the line between friend and foe becomes dangerously blurred.
Descendants is the first book in the Young Adult, Urban Fantasy trilogy: The Arete Series.
Fast paced and thrilling
An immersive page turner from beginning to the end. I fully recommend this to others and look forward to the sequel.
Who doesn’t love a good book about people who can manipulate the elements, a book where it is good versus evil? Descendants is a book about exactly that. With its captivating storyline and heart-wrenching plot points, I can guarantee that this will be a book that you won’t be able to put down.
A Fantastic YA urban fantasy!!
I really enjoyed the world that Rae Else created in Descendants. I will definitely be reading more from this author and look forward to the next book in the series!
