Conjured by Sarah Beth Durst is what I would called a "mix bag of emotions" not in a good way or bad way. I had such high expectations for this novel, but it ended delivering some of them but not fully dazzling the reader. It was a VERY unique book and I think it is one everyone should try and you might not know how you will end up liking it.
Eve has a completely new life. She doesn't a a recollection of memories of her past and she is slowly learning to adapt to her environment. I think most reader would find this cliche off the bat it does but Sarah brings in her own take on it and a bonus, she doesn't focus mainly on the memories part. Conjured was a definite surprising read and I can't see what is next for Sarah.
This book had:
-A protagonist suffering from amnesia
-Witness Protection Program
I mean these are the things that absolutely hooked me into the book but when I look back it wasn't as perfectly weaved together than I wanted to. It suffered than "big expectation syndrome" and I'm still happy to say there are some well-written scenes with Eve. I LOVED how easy with was to pick up this book and not be clogged down with heavy writing or scenes where you don't remember what happened. There's a slight ease to her writing anyone will greatly like.
Conjured is a great book if you love smooth writing integrated with magic, witness protection program, and even a protagonist undergoing that amnesia syndrome. I love how it was a very unique read! I can definitely see myself picking up any of Sarah's books soon!
