Pyxis: The Discovery #1

Pyxis: The Discovery (Pyxis, #1)
Pyxis: The Discovery #1
Author: K.C. Neal
YA Book
(Amy's Review)

Corinne lives an average teenage life working at her dad’s cafe, hanging out with her best friend, and trying to forget a falling-out with her almost-boyfriend Mason. Things take a strange turn when she uses her late grandmother’s food dyes for a bake sale, and her customers suddenly find her irresistibly alluring. Then she discovers she and Mason are haunted by the same dreams of a dark force that consumes everything in its path. Pursued by shadowy figures and a crazy woman with secrets from the past, Corinne must find out who her grandmother really was. In her quest to unravel her family’s history, she learns she is destined to protect this world--and the dark world of her dreams. She races to find the answers she seeks before her nightmares break free.

The first book of this series is a opener.  You find out alot about the characters and this strange Pyxis but you don't really find out what this "Pyxis" is about or its purpose.  It has great character developement so you get to see the relations between them.  Corinne is a Pyxis, what that means yet I don't know.  She is protected by a Shield, Mason, and has 2 Guradians, Angeline and the other has not been named. Other than a aunt who is suffering from a stroke, she has no idea what is happening with her and the source of her dream/visions.  I had to laugh because when Corinne made sweets for a bake sale she used this weird liquid she found for food coloring.  Only a teenager would be that brave.  The character personalities were dead on for teenagers which is a relief because a lot of stories are not realisitc of true teenagers. I think a lot of YA readers will enjoy this story because of the cuteness of it.  I am curious to read the next to find out more about this strange group and see what they are supposed to do. 

Rating 4 out of 5
