Today I will be reviewing Prophase: A Present Tale (The Mitosis Series Book 1) by Mitchel Street.
This book is full of some truly stunning moments, and the visualization in it is incredible. The author does an amazing job of setting the scene for everything that takes place, and Piper is an easy to engage with and likable character that audiences will find easy to connect with.
There is a lot of magic and sorcery in this book, and at times it can get a little overbearing just how much is introduced. The author does a decent job of keeping it all relative and simple, but at times I wish he had stepped back and allowed us to fully appreciate each piece independently before introducing something else.
That being said, that is only a minor complaint, and I can definitely see fans of fantasy novels truly enjoying this new world and following along with the compelling characters. It is a fairly typical 'average girl discovers she has special powers and is important' story, but it is well-told and enjoyable.
Fans of the genre will enjoy this one as an easy escape!
