We rated this book:


Paedyn Gray has a secret. She is a powerless Ordinary hiding out in a shining society that only rewards those with powers and persecutes those who don’t. She poses as a Psychic, fearing discovery and hiding her true nature. But when Paedyn unwittingly pushes herself into the path of a prince, she is forced into dangerous trials that are meant to test the abilities of an Elite. Now, Paedyn is battling the hazards of the trial, her own Ordinaryness, and her blossoming feelings for the prince that she saved. Can one girl manage to win the day – and get the boy – even if she’s completely Ordinary?

This book was highly entertaining and romantic! The characters were well-developed, with depth and chemistry that made me root for them. The worldbuilding kept me invested in the story, as did the familiar yet original romance. The dynamics and banter between the book’s love interests made for a lively and enjoyable read! The book stayed true to well-loved tropes but managed to put its own twist on old stories. Any fan of fantasy romance will love this one!
