Synopsis: “He used to say, ‘a broken heart breaks all around it. Heal you, heal the world.'”
There once were two children,
a girl and a boy.
One could create,
the other, destroy.
Within every heart lies the power to bond or break.
On an isolated port of floating garbage called Hop, Gaiel Izz and his sister, Lynd, never imagined they’d be able to change anything…
Not their nasty neighbors, not their hungry bellies, and especially not their missing father.
That will change when they discover the power of myracles — magic that either creates or destroys.
As the brother and sister set across Esa to bring their family back together, this power will either unite them or shatter their entire world to pieces.
It will all come down to what truly lies within their hearts…
Create or destroy?
Review: For the most part I enjoyed this book. The book is very entertaining and I enjoyed it immensely. The flow of the book is easy to understand and I love the character building and dialogue. I think the best part of this book was the story, which was really well written and had a lot of great world building. The book is also a great read for younger YA audiences.
However, I did find the book pretty slow. Once the book hit a little past the middle part I felt it was a bit faster, but for the most part the slow pacing hurt the book a bit.
Verdict: It was good!
