Her short life was devoted to love and to hate. Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world. Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, she's been given another chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.Thoughts:
In a world where fear is the only currency, Dephon has committed the ultimate crime: inspiring hope.
His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple. Heir to a legendary power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back. His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the world has ever known. The only problem is, she's been dead for 13 years.
Okay, when I was asked if I'd be interested in reading The Exemeus for review, I really had to read the synopsis and think about it. The cover is definitely not my cup of tea.
However, this is a supreme case of "Do not judge a book by its cover." SERIOUSLY!!!
After the first chapter, I was so interested in this story. The Exemeus is a story about Dephon finding out who and what he and his parents are. In a world of solitary, evil rule, Dephon has been given a book to read about the history of Earth and what exactly had happened to get it to the government-ruled Treptonian. This book, The Exemeus, is about Hyalee.
The story mainly focuses on Hyalee and Singleton and what Trepton was when it was Earth. It is her story of finding out about the powers in which she, Singleton, and others have and finding out they are meant to save the Earth.
I was so involved while reading The Exemeus. Folami and Abeni have created such a world that is easy to imagine and not feel lost. I am very anxious and excited to read the next book!
PS...I LOVED Kayin!
A review copy was provided. All thoughts are my own and I have not been persuaded in any way.
The Exemeus is a solid LOVE for me!
About the Authors:
Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.
Folami grew up in the tiny city of
San Mateo, CA, where nothing ever happens and
no one ever leaves. She went to for
undergraduate, getting her B.A in Physics and her B.S in Biology. After
graduation she returned to Xavier
to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch, CA. During
this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends
Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus. She finally escaped to Queens, NY
and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad.
As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of
She has yet to leave. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Development from . She is the mom of
two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds
and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers. Cal
