The End Begins: The Nine by Jeff Zweig II
The Nine. Once an academy for training students in the ways of wizards and alchemists, has become a facility for harvesting the powers of students for study.
Cassarah Telmar escaped the Nine, vowing to bring it down.
But is the choice to live as a slave or to die with freedom one she can make alone?
** spoiler alert ** I received this book for free, in exchange of an honest review, through the Making Connections group.

What I liked about the book:
the atmosphere of the world after the war-nobody knows whom to trust
the presence of religion in such a world-the book had its share of devout men and the nutcases who killed in the name of religion
I loved how confused Vincent was, regarding his cyborg-ness. He didn’t know whether he was alive or had died when they decided to replace parts of him with machine!
James’ character-his cocky attitude and the humor he brought to the story made him like him a lot.
What I did not like:
there was almost no humor in the book. I mean I get it that this was supposed to be a serious story but a little humor would have gone a long way.
the events individually were good to read about but they didn’t come together like one big story.
the romance between Cass and Caleb felt forced. I also didn’t like Cass’ character at all. She felt too inhuman and unfeeling to me.
