Steel Lily by Megan Curd

Title: Steel Lily
Series: Periodic Series #1
Author: Megan Curd
Publication Date: August 20th 2013

AVERY PIKE is a commodity. No, more than a commodity. Her existence is guarded at all costs.
She’s a water Elementalist, the strongest of her dwindling kind. She creates steam to provide energy to fuel Dome Four: the only thing standing between humanity and an earth ravaged by World War III. No steam, no Dome. No Dome, no life.
Or so she thinks.
That is, until a mysterious man offers her a way out of having to donate steam. A way to escape the corrupt government of Dome Four. While the offer seems too good to be true, Avery is intrigued.
But when she arrives to her new home, she realizes the grass isn’t any less dead on this side of the fence. Instead, the lies are just hidden better.
…Which means digging deeper.
When Avery enlists the help of her friends to uncover the truth, she learns that while some secrets are better left concealed, humankind was never meant to live in a cage. And when you can control the most sought after resource, you can learn to control anything…including the fate of your world.

My Review

5 absolutely AMAZING stars.

I received this book as an ARC from the author, and after hearing so many great reviews about this book, I couldn't wait to get started. I had to stop a few times since I'm busy on holiday, but I managed to devour this book in less than 2 days.

STEEL LILY has a mixture of romance, humour, thriller, mystery and action. Avery Pike is an orphan, she has the ability to create steam. She's the most powerful elementalist out there. I thought Avery was strong, witty, a bit annoying sometimes, brave and HILARIOUS! I laughed out loud so many times while reading this book, oh my, all of the sarcasm.

And then there was Jaxon. I mean, he wasn't my type of 'bad boy', but he was amazingly funny! I mean, he can never speak one sentence without at least one sarcastic word in it. It was hilarious!! I had to stop a few times just to get my laughter in control.

This book took a huge twist, I mean, ABSOLUTELY HUGE twist. I was so surprised I had to stop for a bit. How could you have guessed that Riggs was.....No, I'm not going to reveal anything away, you'll just have to read it yourself! Hehe!

Oh, and the action!! I couldn't help sometimes but imagine myself being in there sneaking around and fighting along with Avery. I mean, the book was so well described that I was basically living in it. Megan did an amazing job creating this world of World War III, not only did she make it action-packed, she mixed it up with a little bit of zombie-ish people too, those people that were contaminated and all of that. Which I absolutely LOVED!!

Oh WOW! I seriously can't wait for book 2. I mean, after THIS, how can you NOT be dying for the next book!!??? You have to go and buy this book when it comes out! I mean, you HAVE to! (Or else I'll let Avery turn you into steam, muwhaha)
