E-ARC Review: Society of Wishes by Elise Kova & Lynn Larsh

Hi guys! As a proud member of Elise Kova’s Street Team, I am excited today to be sharing my review of her (along with debut author Lynn Larsh’s) newest NA urban fantasy novel Society of Wishes, which is the first installment of the upcoming Wish Quartet series! I hope you enjoy this review!


About the BookSociety of Wishes

First book in the Wish Quartet, a new-adult, urban fantasy series

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

Josephina Espinosa makes her living as a hacker-for-hire in the Lone Star Republic, a remnant of the fractured U.S.A. That is, until the day she and her best friend are gunned down in a government raid.

With her dying breath, Jo uses magical lore passed down from her grandmother to summon a wish-granter. Her wish? To save her friend’s life. Except wishes have costs, and for Jo, the price is the erasure of her entire mortal existence.

Now, as the most recent addition to the mysterious Society of Wishes, Jo must form a new “life” alongside the seven other members, one of which being her savior himself. Living as an occupant of the Society’s lavish mansion should be quite the perk, but while it is furnished with everything its inhabitants could possibly need, it lacks one thing—freedom.

Her otherworldly identity crisis takes a backseat, however, when Jo learns that the friend she sacrificed everything for is headed down the same path to ruin. Jumping in head-first, Jo uses her newfound magical abilities to protect him, only to realize that the ripples of her actions have far-reaching consequences. When the Society’s aloof leader Snow decides to give her a taste of his own ancient magic, Jo discovers that there are threads woven into the tapestry of her new reality that reach far beyond the wishes she is now required to grant. Ones that, if tugged on, could mean the unraveling of her existence itself.

Society of Wishes will release on January 29th from Silver Wing Press.

Disclaimer: I received a free electronic ARC of this book from one of the authors (Elise Kova) in exchange for an honest review.

I was really excited to read this book when my e-ARC landed its way into my inbox. Although it did start off a bit rocky to me, I became sucked into the novel quickly afterwards. There were times when I could not put it down, for I fell in love with the characters and the world-building and the plot. The first installment in Kova and Larsh’s The Wish Quartet feels a lot like an exposition—while it did have a lot of plot, I feel as if it’s only just the start to something even bigger, in which I’ll just have to wait and see what happens next. Society of Wishes is an engaging paranormal fantasy that will both fascinate and haunt readers at the same time as it kicks off a promising fantasy series.

Rating: 3/5

This story gave me mixed emotions, after such a promising start that it would have a lot more drama on the paranormal side. Instead, there was the typical school drama and a love triangle that had me cheering for the underdog. Overall, I did like this book. The chemistry between Lyla and both the men in her life was good, and the romance between Ethan and Lyla was strong and illustrated how good they are together. The way this story ended is to be continued and does leaves readers hanging, but it will also make readers intrigued because of what does happen. There is a good story here but a lot of formatting errors that made a smooth read difficult. This has the potential to be a good New Adult addition.

Recommendation: New Adult and Paranormal Romance readers
