Booklist Review
When Nina was 13, she would have died in an earthquake if not for the sudden appearance of a gargantuan, mystical lizard-lion beast. She's the only one who remembers, though, thanks to her odd immunity to the forgetting spell cast by a mysterious paragon a modern-day magic-user. Ten years later, Nina is struggling with depression and addiction. She has spent the decade failing to find the magical world, but when the mystical beast returns and kidnaps her sister, Nina becomes hell-bent on forcing her way into the hidden society of paragons, where amid a turf war between rival factions she unravels a lifetime of deceptions, revealing a shocking truth about her history, family, and future. In this six-part kickoff, Humphries and Bartel have woven a wonderfully intricate plot around a cast of complex characters. Their Angeleno urban fantasy of glamorous paragons is well-realized, conceptually and artistically the high-fashion outfits alone are worth the price of admission and it shimmers with potential, both epic and intimate. Hand this to fans of the CW's superhero aesthetic.--Ronny Khuri Copyright 2019 Booklist
