Blending magic and superpowers, Jordan Elizabeth creates a conflicted seventeen-year-old heroine, helping the weak, opposing the wrong, and eager to move away from her parents’ influence. It doesn’t help that her parents don’t like her boyfriend, or that they keep secrets. Because Banon’s not meant to know her powers yet—not till she comes of age. And she’s not meant to marry outside her clan.

Two clans and one clan war start this novel, giving a sense of Romeo and Juliet crossed with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But witches or fae hide complex, often confusing motivations, and it’s hard to guess whose side the dark stranger is on for the first half of this book. One clan is clearly evil, mostly; the other mostly good. But there’s history too, in a story that crosses continents and eras. Sometimes befuddling, sometimes simply exciting, filled with action, heady with romance and tragedy, and with great snarky dialog from its teen protagonist, Time to Live might invite many characters to die; lines will be crossed and rules broken before the end. It’s a fast fun young adult novel, perfect for girls who wish they had superpowers with which to save the world.

Disclosure: I was given a free copy and I offer my honest review.
