Kate Parker's life is pretty ordinary. She is a star swimmer and has a supportive group of family and friends. However Kate's life spins out of control when she meets handsome and mysterious Lucas. As Kate and Lucas start to fall for each other, Kate begins to realize that Lucas is hiding something. Something potentially dangerous, and something that's pretty out of the ordinary. Soon, Kate not only starts to uncover what Lucas is hiding, but also discovers a special gift of her own she never knew she had.

Thank you very much to the author for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

Supremacy was a very unique fantasy/romance with an interesting concept, however I do think it had it's flaws. Still, I think that the author provided concepts that were quite new to the paranormal YA world.

The special gift that Lucas and Kate possess was very interesting to read about. It was not anything that I had read about before and I was intrigued to read about Lucas' world. I thought that the author did a great job at keeping things completely out of the typical paranormal YA, which was a good thing.

What I didn't enjoy, was the overall characters. They were all very one-sided, very flat, and there wasn't much to them at all. Kate was so simply put and I really wanted more from her. I think she had the potential to be a great kickass lead, but she was very dull. Lucas was also very typical of a YA love interest, and I wanted more from him.

The relationship was just average for me. I feel like I wanted more chemistry between Lucas and Kate, and I didn't feel like they quite fit together. I wanted more of a stronger dynamic between them.

Overall, I'd love to see where the author takes the unique concept and hopefully builds on the characters in the series.

  1. Awww, it's a pity to hear that the characters weren't the best! Hopefully that improves over the series, definitely!
    I love it when there's a new concept to a genre - always makes it a little harder to predict what might happen! :D

    1. Haha yes it's definitely not predictable, so that's a good thing!

  2. Great review Em - constructive criticism without being a jerk XD well done lovely :) and all books can give us something to take away - even the ones we had issues with :)

    1. Absolutely! Thanks Cee, the hardest thing was to try and not come off like a jerk, so I'm glad I achieved that!

  3. This one sounds interesting enough- pity about the characters and the romance, though! Lovely review, Em :))
