Adept was one of the books I picked up in the 12 days of Bookmas, and the premise intrigued me. Some hundred years ago something devastating happened to Earth and the Moon, and the world was plunged into a dystopian world where magic came back.
The pure genius of this book was to balance the magic with the old technology of the yesteryears. Which I think, Erik did a marvellous job in his storytelling.
The main character Laney is no mary sue, she is clumsy, a bit awkward and is, in fact, a brilliant character. Not to go into spoiler territory but I love the romantic side of this story as it felt real. Her supporting cast was fully fleshed out, and I like every one of them.
The dialogue and interactions between the cast were real and organic, and I could see the whole world in my mind's eye.
Excellent book and I look forward to reading the next one.
