Heart of Mist is a fast-paced fantasy epic that’s set in a magical realm (where magic is forbidden!) composed of four continents: Ellest, Battalon, Havennesse, and Qatrola. Their borders are shrouded in a deadly mist, which threatens to kill more and more civilians as it continues to consume lands while gradually inching towards the kingdoms.

The story largely follows the struggles of Bleak, an orphaned gutter rat from the coastal village of Angove. Cursed with magical abilities that plague her everyday life, she desperately scours the kingdoms for a cure and self-medicates with alcohol. In her fruitless search for healing, she finds something else entirely: trouble. As well as an inevitable battle of power and politics she wants no part in.

Having been left at the altar in her wedding dress, Katie Bloom has spent the last two years struggling with her self-worth. Little does she know her life is about to drastically change once Jesse Mayes, rock star extraordinaire, enters it (and quite literally, her).

Coerced into participating in Jesse’s rather intimate music video, Katie never imagined making out with a stranger in front of a camera crew as a means for her to heal her broken heart. The sex is fake but the chemistry between her and Jesse is so real it’s terrifying, and soon the steamy video is topping the charts. Somewhere along the way, Katie agrees to pose as Jesse’s girlfriend for six weeks while he promotes his new album.

Madelyn “My friends call me ‘Midge’” Knightly is the daughter of a renowned, cutthroat Hollywood producer; however, six years ago, she chose to walk away from the glamour and shiny promises of that lifestyle in order to pursue her dream of becoming an author.

Brody Prescott, CEO of a successful online dating company, finds both his reputation and the future of his company on the line due to a sudden (false) scandal that puts his professionalism and moral ethics in question. The implications of this scandal, together with his reputation as a heartless playboy, compel him to sign up as the first participating bachelor in a reality TV show called “Marry Your Billionaire”. Funnily enough, this TV production (which strikingly resembles the hit dating series “The Bachelor”) is a project that belongs to Midge Knightly’s father.

After a massive meteorite nearly wiped out the human population to the point of extinction, mankind shifted its focus towards human expansion, actively seeking out means to safely inhabit other celestial bodies in the universe.

The story begins three hundred years after the meteorite hit. At this point, several places in the solar system—such as Luna (the moon), Mars, Europa (one of Jupiter’s moons), and Titan (one of Saturn’s moons)—are now populated by man. Those who are born on Earth are referred to as Earthers whereas everyone else is called as off-worlders. Additionally, the old forms of government all collapsed and have been replaced by the United Sol Federation (USF). However, the USF is actually a structure without real power due to the existing, prevalent corporate politics. Private corporations—namely Pervenio and Venta—are truly the ones in control.

Before anything else, I received a free digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Many thanks to Sarah Noffke and her publishers!

As far as I know, Defects is Sarah Noffke’s fourth published novel, which is (from what I’ve heard) eerily similar to her first trilogy, The Lucidites. This is the first time I’ve read one of her works. When I received her email, I immediately replied (and quite enthusiastically, if I may add) because damn it to hell, the book’s synopsis is insanely intriguing. The concept of Dream Travelers was very foreign to me, and I wanted to know more about them! Needless to say, I wasn’t disappointed in the least.
