A worldwide economic collapse has left society in shambles with only basic technology. Stephen is able to connect to what’s left of the grid to play a video game with a stranger. What’s left of tech is easy for Stephen to manipulate. It’s not enough to sneak off to play games online and Stephen longs for excitement. That’s exactly what he gets when he has to go to town to get parts. He meets a girl on the run from the new government enforcers – the Watch.

I was immediately immersed in this post-a

The Watch and the Wand is the second book in the Gene Assist Series, a dystopian tale dabbling in genetic engineering. The science is intriguing and complex and it’s possible to see nano technology invading our lives in the not too distant future.

This book starts after the breakdown of society and 15 years after the conclusion of book one: Fair and Foul. Stephen’s dull life comes to an end when he meets Bean, a girl on the run from the dangerous Watch. With Bean, he sets off into the unknown wo

This book is set several years after Julianne's initial adventure in The Fair and Foul which brings a fantastic set of new characters - although we do see some cameos from the past.

The Watch and Wand is set in a gritty and richly described dystopian world where survival is tough and technology (as we know it) is all but gone. The two main characters are refreshing and unexpected because they're not your average carbon Clark Kent cutout. Something that made me love them that little bit more.

It's been a little over a year since I read the first book in this series, and while I'd recommend reading it first for a better overall understanding of how society came to be in this shape, The Watch & Wand could be a standalone.

Set fifteen years after the end of the first book in this series, the world is barely recognizable, and it's a struggle just to survive.  This is almost a coming of age story for Stephen.  He's anxious for adventure and fairly naive as the story begins, but becomes jad

The title alone is a super fun play on the basic idea of the book. It said magic to me, silly me. So I was expecting a bad Harry Potter knock off. So NOT what I got. Woot.

YA Dystopia, I told you that much already. There is two real main characters. A cast of supporting characters who vary in just how supportive they really are. LOL. Don’t trust anyone. Very good advice.

The Magic, however, is technology with a really big dose of how much is really good for us. Can we ever go too far? I don’t want
