ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

Supremacy is Christin Lee's debut novel. It is the first installment of a Young Adult and Paranormal Romance series.

The story started with Kate Parker, a seventeen-year old girl who is said to be really intelligent, and who has this huge heart for animals. She met Lucas, a Spanish exchange-student from a university nearby, as she was looking for a stray dog in the woods. The guy was having trouble with his motorbike so she hel

Mini review:


I received this E-ARC via the author in exchange for an honest review.

I really wanted to like this one. But unfortunately while I liked the main character, I didn't like how weirdly overprotective her family was. It started to remind me of some typical paranormal books.

Still recommend.

Kate has everything she could want, good friends and family, easy grades and a happy life. When Lucas enters her life, she couldn't begin to imagine where that would lead.

I received a free ARC in exchange for an honest review (so there may be a few changes between this and the finished copy).

The first half of the book reads very much like a YA Romance, before the Fantasy elements start to affect the story and dominates the second half.
Kate is an interesting and likeable character. She loves to s
There’s a new YA author in town and Christin Lee is setting a high bar for YA reading that is young YA safe, too! Supremacy is an exciting start to a new series that takes us to the center of the earth where a hidden society, far superior to us surface dwellers has remained hidden for eons.

Kate is an almost typical teen who is used to having things come easy to her in life with her total recall of all that goes on around her. Being a passionate animal rescuer on the hunt for an abandoned dog, sh

This was a pretty good ready and helped me come out of a reading slump. Kate and Lucas are both likeable characters (though equally frustrating at times) and there is an air of mystery that clouds the story. This went in a direction I hadn't been expecting when I was trying to figure out what the big secret is and I think that is what really kept me coming back for more.

Not a fantastic book but definitely doe

This was an incredibly fun book. And I know that's such a typical adjective to use, but it truly was. I continually found myself reaching for it, wondering what was going to happen next, until before I knew it, I was turning to the last page. There's an addictive quality to this story, and I think this mostly stems from the writing being so quick and easy to read.

The characters and their relationships with one another felt very authentic. Kate has an immense love for animals, while also dealing

This was a most unusual read and one of the key strengths of the book. A PNR read but the paranormal element was totally unexpected. For most of the book I had absolutely no idea where it was going and in terms of plot line, I enjoyed being in the dark and the mystery. It feels like most PNR plots are already 'done' but this one had me going "what?"

The lead characters of Kate and Lucas were immediately likeable. They meet over a broken motorbike and are clearly attracted to one another. Lucas im

I did like this story however there was something because of which I couldn't enjoy it wholeheartedly.

Kate Parker is a 17 year old who has the ability to remember everything once she reads, sees or hears anything. She's an animal lover and she rescues them whoever needs help. Everything in her life is pretty much normal until she meets Lucas. They are both drawn to each other

We follow Kate, a senior and top of her class and swim team in Texas. She has her two best friends and her family who are a bit crazy at times. She also has her herd of rescue animals, because that’s what she does she connects with animals and can’t leave a wounded or lost one behind. On one of these outings to find a lost animal she meets a mysterious and sexy guy named Lucas. With his accent and looks she’s instantly drawn in but she ca

HO-LEE-CRAP, I Loved this book.
For one, it was incredibly well written. Were there occasional editing slips? Sure, but they were few and far between. Secondly, I'm just gonna say it, this is the best author submission I've ever read. I have never heard of Christin Lee, I have not already fallen in love with her books before she sent me the email to review this book, so all this love and admiration is coming straight from her work. This was her debut novel, annnnndddd now I have an author crush.

My copy was supplied to me by the author! Thank you so much! The fact that it was an ARC does not affect my review of it.

This was a pretty good book! Usually, Fantasy is difficult to write when you are inexperienced, but Christin Lee pulls through. The book was written simply, with no fancy words trying to impress the reader, and that is what makes it so effective. Although the story starts off pretty slow, it's interesting enough to keep reading. For me, the characters seem so normal and averag

I’m so happy! I love reading great books and this was truly a great book! Great ready, everyone, Christin Lee is going to be an extremely well known YA author!

I was already excited to read Supremacy just from reading the description that the author sent to me, but as I got into it I just couldn’t put it down! Actually, I wasn’t completely honest just now, I had to put it down last night because it was late and my husband really wanted me to turn the bright iPad off so he could sleep. But then th

A YA paranormal is exactly what I was looking for. Supremacy fits this description perfectly. Christin Lee has a way with telling this YA story that even the not YA reader will love this book. I kept thinking I had to put this book down and get something else done but I kept reaching for the book having to read on more chapter…one more paragraph. What’s the problem with that? I read many more chapters and paragraphs.

Being a teenager having their first relationship is testing at best. Add into t

WOW! Ms. Christin just freakin' NAILED it!!!! I rarely like YA novels and this book is one of them! I was blown away of Supremacy. From the tart up to the last I was hooked! The story and the characters are amazing. This book is about Kate and the mysterious Lucas. Kate is a girl who has a special characteristics that made her somewhat special. She loves animals and has a knack in taking care/interacting with them. Lucas, a mysterious student who made Kate's heart beat faster and intrigued her. ...more

I have mixed feelings for this book. On the one hand, it has consistency issues and poor character judgement/personalities. But on the other... I kind of like where things are heading. At first I didn't have a clue of what this book was going to be about, until we 'meet' the other society. I liked that and it has potential, BUT, this book needs a bit more polishing in the details. Some things just don't add up. Despite it all, I think I will pick up the sequel when it comes out.


3 “Mysterious society” Stars

I finished this book a while ago, and I'm still not sure how to rate it. The first half was more like a 3.5, but the second half was probably a 2.5, so that's why I'm going with 3 stars.

Honestly, I felt like I was reading two different books.

When it started, we met Kate Parker, a super smart teenager with a passion for animals who was trying to rescue a stray dog. Of course she had me falling in love with her right there and then, because how could I not love someone

I didn't know much about this book other than it's a YA/Urban Fantasy, and I really had no idea what to expect. Kate is an interesting character. The word “hyperthymesia” is never used, but Kate has it. In case you're unfamiliar with it, it's also called Superior Autobiographical Memory, and those who possess it can remember every detail of everything that ever happens to them. Kate tells Lucas if she hears it or sees it, she will rememb

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

There was a bit of an insta-love thing, but although the “feelings” were immediate, the relationship progressed fairly slowly (at least physically), which evened it out a bit, and I was able to get used to it quickly. Kate’s relationship with Lucas gave me mixed feelings- on the one hand, they really liked each other, but on the other, she was actually afraid of him, and that is both unhealthy and hard to s

his story takes a slightly new twist, while adding layers as the pages turn.

Kate's interests don't fit the normal teenage girl scope, but rather she would love to spend her life rescuing animals, something her loving family and supportive friends allow her to indulge in. When she tries to help a stray dog, she instead ends up helping an intriguing guy fix his motorcycle. Suddenly, her interests widen and she can't get him off of her mind. But there's a lot more to the handsome stranger than meet

I received this book from the author. This does not change my opinions

Let me start by saying that the cover and the blurb do not live up to the story. That’s for sure.

At first, I almost put Supremacy down because I felt like the insta-love right in the first chapter was a bit too obvious and over the top. But I pressed on, and I did not regret it.

This book is about Kate. She is overly sheltered by her family, has a condition that makes her remember everything she ever sees or hears, is on the

*I was given an ebook copy of this book from the author to read and review. But that does not affect my view of this book*

So starting off this review, I really liked this book! I first off loved that she was from Texas, since that's where my family lives so I could relate to Kate that way. And I also loved the overall feel of this book! Supremacy is about a 17 year old named Kate who lives in Texas. She's smart, sassy, and athletic, and she is also very helpful and animal friendly.

This novel started very slow for me; just a little too much exposition. While it does a good job of establishing the characters, it makes things seem a little rushed once you get to the meat of the situation. Plus, Kate isn't that complex of a character so it doesn't take a lot of t

Supremacy was an author review request, it was also her first book release as well.

Supremacy is set up where there are two very different worlds and one young girl that may help save both of those worlds before it's too late.

While it took awhile for the book to reach it's point about what the book is really about, but I enjoyed the character interactions. So even though it took awhile, I think the character's stories took care of that big gap.

Supremacy is a #YA #UrbanFantasy set in Texas. Seventeen year old Kate Parker has perfect recall. It allows her to remember everything that's ever happened to her.

When out searching for a stray dog she meets Lucas a nineteen year old Spanish student, and helps him fix his motorbike. They become friends and Kate must introduce him to her over-protective family. But Lucas is even more protective of her, it is what he has been trained to do.

Kate is an ordinary girl who has a special affinity with animals, and she has a photographic memory. Lucas is a foreign student who is studying abroad. Kate has never fallen for a guy before, but Lucas is different. She falls for him almost instantly. However, he is hiding a secret, and Kate is determined to find out what it is.

I really enjoyed this book. I knew I was going to be into the book, but I didn't realize how much this book would reel me in. I do have to admit that the first third of the book was pretty mundane, but I think that it was necessary to add a little bit of character development before getting into the main plot of the book. With that being said, the character development was very well written.
My favorite thing about the book was the beginning of the romance. I'm not going to give anything away,

In the world we live in, the thought of a whole society living below us rarely crosses our minds. But Christin Lee’s book, Supremacy harnesses and builds up the idea of life below the surface, and makes it into an engaging heart clenching urban fantasy romance novel which will leave you dumbfound at the end of it.

The beginning of the book starts off rather normal and basic. The story then builds up into something unimaginable, with a natural paced relationship build up to the uncovering of secre

In a search to find a lost dog, Kate runs into Lucas, a college student with intriguing eyes and a Spanish accent.

Story had a bit of a slow start and lagged with trivial detail. Of course, there was no denying the chemistry and good rapport between the two. Strange how Kate felt this incredible surge of energy when she touched him. What’s that about?

Kate was pretty cool. I mean, you would have to be to be able to fix a motorcycle after taking one class. She was smart and skillful. But her most e

Blown Away!

This was an amazing story, and though it is a YA, anyone who loves a good fantasy and romance, filled with secrets and attraction, will like this story. There is Kate and Lucas! A connection that cannot be denied, and writing that connection is a gift. Lee certainly has this gift for telling a good story, and bringing the reader on a grand journey.
