Title: The Exemeus
Author: Folami Morris and Abeni Morris
Publisher: Royal Colours Ink
Publication: January 3rd, 2013
Hyalee Smith is dead, she just doesn’t know it yet.
Her short life was devoted to love and to hate. Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world. Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, she has been given another chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.
In a world where fear is the only currency, Dephon has committed the ultimate crime: inspiring hope.
His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple. Heir to a legendary power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back. His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the world has ever known. The only problem is, she's been dead for 13 years.
Once I started reading dystopian, I couldn't quit. It is now one of my favorite genres. When I found out that The Exemeus was a dystopian novel, I knew I had o read it. It didn't disappoint me at all. I loved the characters in this story especially Hyalee and Singleton. The story was beautifully written and very descriptive. I was able to picture everything going on in the story and at times, felt as if I was there. I love when stories are able to drag me in like that. I had no clue what was going on around me as I was reading this. I was completely shocked at how much time went by when I finished. What I also loved about this book was its uniqueness and originality. I haven't read a dystopian book like this so I really enjoyed this. Most stories are told though a female's POV so I was glad to find out that this book was told through a male's.
Hyalee was a kick-butt character!!! I loved her!!! The relationship between Hyalee and Singleton was my favorite part of the book. I loved watching their relationship grow and development into something more. Hyalee as a character was very different from a lot of other characters in books and that is what I loved about her. She had a lot more depth.
The Exemeus is an enthralling read that had me hooked after the very first page. At times, it did get a little slow for me. But once the story picked back up, I wasn't able to put it down This story was full of action, mystery, suspense and romance. It has it all!!! There were so many twists and turns throughout this story that it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I was left completely shell-shocked most of the time. This is a book that I will definitely reread. I loved everything about it!!! It is a must read everyone!!!
