Book Fam If you haven't come across this piece of art I urge you to leave all work and other stuff and start reading this!
Bereft is a flawless world created by the author! I devoured the book in one night! (I am a slow reader) The book kept me on my toes the whole time I was into it.
A perfect blend of action, sarcasm, adventure,romance (may be) and courage.
The story will leave you for craving more.
The Story revolves around Sara whom I've come to love. She teaches us that being human is not our

For the first time in 4 years that I've come to be a part of Wattpad, I finally found something that is truly compelling. And right now, I'm struggling really hard to find some book that can compete with the series. Bereft just had the characteristic that can make you stop reading for a while because you can't just take tension that happens inside the book. It's like watching a drama show and you're currently in a very intense scene and you can't bear to watch the next thing that's going to unfo ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone
In my three years on Wattpad, I've read a lot of stories. Some have stood out above the rest but none have come close to the brilliance of Bereft. Ren's writing is captivating- beginning to end. The story line is unique and refreshing among countless in the fantasy/paranormal categories. Sara Gaspard isn't some cliché damsel-in-distress. She's quite honestly a badass, with or without the Original Sin of Pride by her side.

Every twist in turn within the story had me eager for whatever came next.

Ren's powerful descriptions and witty dialogue made me fall in love with all the characters so quickly!
The story has a lot more characters than 'usual', but each one is introduced so seamlessly and given such strong personalities that they all become extremely memorable.
The storyline is written at a perfect pace, with every chapter leaving me on edge; staying up to finish the book within 2 days was very much so worth it.
I came across this series by chance on Wattpad, so now it will be hard to fi

I had a lot of fun reading this! Really liked the characters and the worldbuilding. Will definitely read the next book in de series.
Why only three stars? I was distracted by some plot inconsistencies and most of the big twists were quite predictable (or they were for me at least).
This was actually the first draft of this book, and I believe the author said a new version will be coming soon. I'm exited to see what she did with this.
And like I said: I'll definitely read the next book in this se

I absolutely love this book! It's incredibly addicting and you constantly want to know what will happen next. The plot doesn't let up for a single moment and at points you are on the edge of your seat. The main character is also fully realised as is the world and it is explained perfectly. There are constant twists and turns that leave you guessing until the very end. Everyone should read this!

This book is unlike anything I have previously read for this genre. The story is both fascinating and original. There are many twists, turns, plots, subplots, etc...
The amount of detail is abundant, almost too much so. Also there is a saturation of word choices I felt distracting and also unnecessary. Having said that, I do recommend this story.

Never have I ever been more in love with a book than this series. Everything, absolutely EVERYTHING about it is MAGNIFICENT! The characters, the plot, the writing, the creativity, the depth of knowledge and research and planning and effort that has so obviously been put into it. It's everything I've ever wanted a book to be. This is my absolute favourite. it's literally perfect.

I absolutely love this book, from the writing style to the plot to the way the book weaves in with the other Bereft books, it's just an amazing read and you can tell how much time and effort Tachibana put into it. I completely recommend this to anyone interested in fantasy, demons, or good old fashioned revenge.
