it was amazing
Read in February, 2012 — I own a copy

Oppression is a new, original first in the series of ‘Children of the Gods’ story. I have not read any book like it in the paranormal and fantasy books I have read so far.

Elyse has always felt that she has a unique and extraordinary ability since she was a childhood, a secret she only shared with a Anna, her best friend since childhood. This is not the only secret that. After the death of her parents, Elyse doesn’t seem to get settled much in any place that she goes. However when she arrives new in town, everything seems to go in chaos and a whole new world of different personalities and people is revealed to her.

Elyse is a very likable character and is easy to understand. She is fun, as well as full of adventure. Elyse is brave and is always at the front when it comes to protecting her friend which is a real big struggle when unexpected circumstances come into view and she has to stretch that protectiveness further which could be fatal. One other main character, one of the first that Elyse comes to meet is William. He is a totally lively, cute, funny and enthusiastic guy who is just fun to be with and hard to dislike. He is keen to help Elyse through the problems she faces and is one she can rely on. But Elyse's problem is not just any problem it could get her killed. Will William be prepared to help her and take that risk that leads to Elyse's death?

The storyline is filled with adventures and excitement keeping the story on edge and in action at every turn of a page. It is enveloped with romance, happiness and enthusiasm adding a unique edge to the story. It is an exploration of paranormal happenings along with the true meanings of friendship and love.
It is an exciting read packed with so many different things keeping you interested. It is a serious must-read, a gripping story that will hold your interest until the last turn of the page. I will strongly recommend to those readers who enjoyed the following books : Soul Screamers Series, the Iron Fey Series, Dragon Diaries Series, Witchblood, Trylle Trilogy and Morganville Vampires series.
