Opaque: Scion Saga | Calix Leigh-Reign
1 post | 3 read
Rumored to be joining the coveted MARVEL COMICS franchise, the Scion Saga is an exhilarating young adult series of adversity, bravery, and determination. The adventure primarily chronicles the lives of 16 year olds Adam Caspian, Carly Wit, and their clan --all of whom are Descendants of seven ancient Russian Bloodlines. These bloodlines carry unique genetic markers that, when active, grant the host various supernatural abilities. Descendants can be easily identified by their glowing Limbal Rings. The Descendants are under constant threat of extermination at the hands of The Iksha -- an elite,but murderous society of scientists. The series includes a veritable myriad of familial situations that create stronger bonds between the Bloodlines as they band together to fight for their existence.

This had potential. Adam was a tormented character, fighting against feelings he knew he shouldn't have. If the story had stayed on just Adam, I would have loved this book. I didn't find Carly's viewpoint as interesting.
Overall the story of the Descendents was ok, but the world-building could use some work. There were some information dumps I could do without.
