Justice Buried Review & Dream Cast
Series: Starbright #1
Release date: January 15th 2014
The people need Justice, but she's not listening. One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three cities. Now the community of Asphodel is trapped underground, waiting for the prophesied maiden of Justice to return and save them from their Fates.
Sixteen-year-old Astrea is supposed to be this savior - too bad for them she isn't a believer. Trea fights against her false destiny: she rebels against her family and friends, then refuses her arranged marriage to the charming but deceitful Lexan. Learning her life is in danger, Trea is forced to trust Lexan - until she discovers a power she never knew she had, and one he already knew he did.
As betrayal closes every door, Trea decides she must submit to her stars and accept her fate. Then a handsome stranger offers her an unexpected escape and the chance to create her own destiny.
First I must say that I love books that contain mythology, fate and alternative civilizations so right off the bat Justice Buried was a great pick for me.
Justice Buried was a unique and interesting read that instantly pulled me right in. Hillary Thompson brilliantly weaves her tale to include astrology and the zodiac in ways I haven't seen before.
Thompson's characters show great realism by having strength and never but also by being flawed (nobody is perfect!) And honestly how can you dislike a novel with a strong female protagonist and a love triangle?
A definite must read.
