Shield Breaker by Scott Beckman

Shield Breaker

Amazon | Goodreads

Fantasy Series Book 1

3/5 Wizards

I received a copy of this book from the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was released on June 6, 2018. 

What is it about?

Cait is a 15-year-old girl who wants nothing more than to learn magic so that she can be the one to repair the world which was destroyed by others who wielded such powerful magic. She lives in what may be the only place where humanity has survived; a small portion of Denver, Colorado shielded by magic. Cait is about to find out that they aren’t the only ones who survived after all.

Was it good?

The story was interesting, and I was surprised by the big showdown. The main reason I didn’t rate this higher is because I didn’t like Cait. She is only 15, but she was annoying. She’s fed, warm, dry, safe, clean, loved, and unhappy because her parents don’t want her to learn magic for very valid reasons. Magic is what destroyed the world and so her whining and complaining and thievery and poor justifications for her actions made it difficult to sympathize with her.

This book has wizards, zombies, and moral dillemnas.
