Circumstellar by J.W. Lolite
They say that the eyes are windows to the soul, but in Circumstellar by J. W. Lolite, they’re a lot more than that. Part fantasy adventure, part coming-of-age saga, this completely captivating novel follows purple-eyed 16-year-old Ingrid Farheit as she comes to terms with who she is, where she came from, and what her future holds. But, Ingrid’s story is not your typical teenaged drama—it’s filled with secrets, surprises, strange beings, martial arts, myths, mysticism, and much, much more. Left to live with her dear-old, drunken “Auntie” after her mother passed, Ingrid is constantly struggling to feel confident and comfortable with herself—and, to get to school on time. But, when she is attacked on her way home from hanging out with her best friends Lesia and Ty, these things become the least of her concerns. After realizing that her attackers were not necessarily human, Ingrid is introduced to a clandestine community of powerful people, and is schooled in a history that can’t be found in any textbook. She trains physically, gets a boost of self-esteem, and develops an open mind, and her connection with Lesia and Ty deepens as, together, they discover amazing things about themselves, the universe, and each other. Yet, is all of this enough when lives are on the line and the fate of the universe is uncertain? You will have to read Circumstellar to find out—and, when you do, you won’t be disappointed.
Circumstellar is one of those books that is hard to put down. Both the story and the storytelling are of superior quality, and will hook you from the very beginning. The plotline is fast-paced, action-packed, and full of intriguing moments that beg you to keep reading. Lolite’s writing style is incredibly clever, rich, and vibrant, with great attention to detail and a frequently flippant tone that’s downright delightful. All told, this, the premiere book in J. W. Lolite’s new series, is sure to thoroughly entertain you and leave you eagerly awaiting its follow-up.
