Jinxed (Jinxed, 1)
Lacey has always wanted to work for Moncha as a companioneer, someone who builds bakus. Bakus are the newest in technology, a cross between a smartphone and an animal. Her first step is to get into Profectus, the academy that will help her accomplish her goal. But then she’s rejected, and her dream shatters.
After a baku shopping trip gone wrong, Lacey finds a heap of metal she realizes is a baku. Once she repairs the cat baku that she names Jinx, her life changes for the better. Jinx gets Lacey into Profectus and helps her win new friends and many a baku battle.
Slowly, Lacey begins to realize Jinx isn’t like other bakus. He doesn’t always listen to her commands, and he appears to have a personality. Lacey realizes that Jinx is part of a secret that could destabilize everything Moncha stands for and that there are people out to destroy him.
Can Lacey and Jinx find their happy ending? I thought this book had a fun, engaging, and unique storyline. I also liked the characters and relationships, along with the cliff-hangers that always make you want to know what happens next. I am eagerly anticipating the final book in this series!
