Shock of Survival by Nicole Field
genre: urban fantasy
In the wake of the final battle against The Oppressor, Benedict, Ophelia and Dylan face their magical community in triumph. But that triumph rapidly loses its shine as they realise the war is not so easily left behind. Returning to, and relearning, the lives they had before proves to be more difficult than even they had anticipated.
Shock of Survival was good, but not great. I wouldn’t call it bad though. It was just plain old eh. I feel like I’ve read it 500 times before. It legit just felt like a weird jumble of Mortal Instruments, Harry Potter, and Carry On. Overall, the worldbuilding was weak and the ending was sort of confusing.
