Available for Review – Discern by Andrea Pearson (YA Paranormal/Soft Horror)

I am looking for readers who are willing to review this Clean Young Adult Paranormal/Soft Horror novel. A blog is not required.

FYI – I hate “horror” but read this one as a beta reader. I would let my 12 year old read it.

This is “clean” for the genre (no language, no sex) but does of course have some violence and mildly gruesome scenes because of its genre.


Anyone who would like to review this book will be sent an ebook copy in exchange for posting a review on Amazon, Goodreads, etc.

I ask that you post to at least 2 sites preferably Amazon & Goodreads but if you aren’t on those sites you can post on a blog, iTunes, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc.

Anyone who posts a review for the book within 30 days will be entered to win a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

If you accept this book and find it isn’t for you you do not have to continue reading. You simply need to let me know the book isn’t for you and you are under no obligation to review it.

A 4 or 5 Star review is NOT required. Simply post an honest review.

Sounds simple right? If you have any questions please let me know.

This is Young Adult Paranormal/Soft Horror

Length: 294 Pages

Nicole Williams is an Arete—a fourth child with magical abilities—yet no matter how hard she tries, she can’t Channel her power. In fact, she seems to be the only student at Katon University who fails at magic.

That doesn’t stop magic from finding her. It starts with possessed books and cursed spiders before moving quickly to freaky shadows and magical currents. Nicole turns to her best friend for help, along with fellow student Austin Young, who is considered by all a magical rarity. He also happens to be the hottest guy on campus and just might be interested in her.

Nicole soon finds herself competing to be included on a university-led expedition to Arches National Park. She is determined to show everyone, but mostly herself, that she does belong. Yet, to qualify for the trip, she must produce at least a speck of Wind magic, and that appears to be impossible.

As the competition progresses, Nicole wonders if she’s making the right choice—especially when she learns that the strange fossils they’ll be studying in Arches might not be as dead as everyone thinks.

  2. Hello, I would like to review this book, please.

  3. I really would like to read and review Discern by a brand new author to me, Andrea Pearson, her book reads like it should be a great read and I always like it when things don’t come easy or right away for the lead character in this case Nichole Williams. This is one of my favorite genres YA Paranormal, the soft horror is okay.
