A magical city divided.
A political rebellion ignited.
A love that was meant to last forever.

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City’s two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents’ sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths.

But Aria doesn’t remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can’t conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place.

Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.

My Thoughts

Mystic City by Theo Lawrence is one of those books that after reading, I'm perplexed by it, frustrated even. I'm torn between liking it and all out hating it.
The blurb is great and whet my appetite for what I hoped would be a really entertaining read, but by the time I was a third of the way through I got bored, and that's a shame because I thought the book started off well, but f
or me it was a very up and down read.

While I liked the characters, I didn't really connect with them at all - I didn't care enough about them as people to be bothered either way what happened, they lacked any real depth, and I just found them shallow and boring. 

And that's it really, I was bored. I just lost interest, and I didn't enjoy it.
Sadly it was just a 2 Star read for me :|


  1. And my hopes were soo high. Mainly because I wanted it in my shelf, but still. ;D Daangit.

  2. Maybe get it from the library and 'try before you buy' Patricia
