Morium: Book One of the Young Adult Supernatural Trilogy by S.J. Hermann

To produce a mighty book, you must choose a mighty theme. – Herman Melville
Most paranormal/sci-fi books spike my interest, fairly easily, but when I first laid my eyes on the book cover of Morium book one and read the blurb, I knew this would be a winner!  The first picture is my hard copy, but since I purchased it, the author has redone the cover.  I posted that one down below.

If you had the powers to avenge yourself... would you?
Bullied... Years of shame... Lexi and Nathan knew pain.

MORIUM is the story of Alexandria and Nathan... and Stacy. Three teenagers who were victims of bullying all through high school. They kept their torment a secret from their family and tried to cope in their own way. They only had each other. Their friendship saw them through the seemingly endless years of suffering.

But hope was in sight… they will be graduating soon. The vision of a new life away from the bullies and the constant humiliation, gave them something to look forward to. If only that day came sooner.

One night, Lexi and Nathan saw an object fall from the sky and went to investigate. As they touched the rock, a strange power entered their bodies. Suddenly, they're not helpless anymore. They can get revenge for all the suffering and pain they had to endure.

How will they use these powers?

MORIUM discusses the moral dilemma of doing what's right against getting revenge. When your dignity has been shattered and your life has been a living hell... what is RIGHT?

Possible trigger warning. Scenes of self harm may be disturbing to sensitive readers.
And my 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 review:

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The author does a fantastic job of building his characters and creating a realistic story line about bullying and the trials of being abused through high school. My heart went out to the three main characters and I partially understood their heartache and agony.

Adding the paranormal twist to the story, only made it that more intriguing and kept me reading as quickly as I could. If you want a great YA paranormal read, this is the one for you. It will grip your heart, along with your undivided attention. I can't wait to read what happens in book two!

You can find the author on most social media, but a direct link to his books on Amazon is here: 

You won't regret reading this authors work.  I for one have book two on my TBR list and can't wait to continue on with the story!  Enjoy!
