This week I'm spotlighting The Flux, which is an ARC I received from Negalley, so the quote below may not actually be in the finished copy.

Here's the description taken from goodreads.  This is a sequel, so be warned of possible spoilers.
Love something enough, and your obsession will punch holes through the laws of physics. That devotion creates unique magics: videogamemancers. Origamimancers. Culinomancers.
But when ‘mancers battle, cities tremble…
ALIYAH TSABO-DAWSON: The world’s most dangerous eight-year-old girl. Burned by a terrorist’s magic, gifted strange powers beyond measure. She’s furious that she has to hide her abilities from her friends, her teachers, even her mother – and her temper tantrums can kill.
PAUL TSABO: Bureaucromancer. Magical drug-dealer. Desperate father. He’s gone toe-to-toe with the government’s conscription squads of brain-burned Unimancers, and he’ll lie to anyone to keep Aliyah out of their hands – whether Aliyah likes it or not.
THE KING OF NEW YORK: The mysterious power player hell-bent on capturing the two of them. A man packing a private army of illegal ‘mancers.
Paul’s family is the key to keep the King’s crumbling empire afloat. But offering them paradise is the catalyst that inflames Aliyah’s deadly rebellious streak…

From 56% of The Flux:
Except Aliyah wasn't angry.
She was upset her daddy had lied to her again.
And Paul had been trying to hide things from Aliyah.


  1. I'm on the fence about this one. Lovely cover but not too sure it's for me. I hope you enjoy it:)

    My 56 -

  2. I can't stand liars, so I can empathize with Aliyah. Sounds like an interesting read.
    Happy weekend!
