Very interesting concept, I can't wait to read more and understand the backstory better.

We come into the story in the middle of the action, children are being tested for magical ability. The characters are fully realized and believable in their emotions, actions and reactions. And the ending of the Excerpt leaves you wanting more. If you're interested in a well-written tale with three dimensional characters in a world where magic decides your future.... then Pre-Order this book. 
Lena (Helena and Malena)
Just found this and really like the introductory chapter. Already some interesting character contradictions emerging in this girl who both does and doesn't want to be selected to leave her village. Fun fantasy concept.

Well-written, believable characters, and reminiscent of the Hunger Games... Pre-order this book now. You won't be disappointed.
