Sometimes being an outsider is the best way to fit in…
Sasha Carrington has grown up feeling like an outsider, and her parents are too concerned with scaling the Lincoln, Connecticut, social ladder to even notice her. They’d be really horrified to know about the supernatural abilities Sasha and her friends Krystal and Jake possess. But as part of the Mystyx, Sasha has found her place.
Now her parents have suddenly taken an interest in everything she does, and their timing couldn’t be worse. Sasha’s father wants her to become BFFs with snooty Alyssa Turner, who hates Krystal for stealing her boyfriend. Then there’s Antoine Watson, the boy Sasha has liked forever, the boy her parents would never approve of. But with the dark side getting more dangerous by the day, and the Mystyx’s own powers growing in unexpected ways, Sasha is facing choices that could affect her friends, her love life—and even her destiny…
I wondered if I should read this, because after all I didn’t read Manifest, the first book in this series, but I did. I found it enjoyable, but nothing really stood out for me.
Sasha is strong, friendly and powerful. The relationship she has with her parents is a though one. Her parents are more into money then into their daughter. And she’s practically raised by the housekeeper. I wished Sasha would just stand up for herself and tell her parents that she need them to love her. But every time they expected her to play the good little rich girl, she just did.
All in all I really enjoyed reading Mystify and I’ am looking forward reading book number three, Mayhem.
