's review

it was amazing

I don’t usually read YA or Fantasy books, but Kyla’s books are like crack to me so of course I decided to read Affiliate. When I started I was immediately intrigued and fell in love with the time period. I am a HUGE fan of Western Civilization and while this is obviously fiction it is set in a similar time, so I was hooked.

Our heroine is Cyrene is seventeen and we first meet her on the day of her Presenting. Today is the day that will determine the rest of her life. She will learn if she will be First, Second or Third Class. During her Presenting she captivates King Edric and becomes an Affiliate to the Queen.

From the moment Cyrene begins her time as Affiliate her life as she knew it completely changes. She has multiple challenges and learning who she is. She has these new abilities and is seeing things differently. This story is really just a tease of what’s to come and learning the class systems and characters. We need to learn of Cyrene’s powers and I am dying to see where things could go with King Edric. I have so many hopes and for this book and I can’t wait to see what’s in store.

Despite this story being YA and our heroine being seventeen it doesn’t feel like typical YA. The best way I can describe it is to say she isn’t a seventeen in high school. She is an adult according to her culture and making adult decisions that will affect the rest of her life. It’s very grownup YA. That being said, I do highly recommend even if this isn’t your typical genre if you are fan of Kyla’s angst and creativity!
