Bisecter by Stephanie Fazio is a young adult dystopian fantasy. Hemera Harkibel is faster and stronger than any man or woman in Subterrane Harkibel and it is because she is a Bisecter. When her mother was pregnant, their settlement was attacked by the monstrous creatures called Halves and their blood landed on her skin. Instead of dying a fiery death like so many others before and after, Lady Harkibel survived. And when Hemera was born, she had the black eyes of the Halves and all their strengths. All her life she’s hidden her true power from the Duskers who would kill her for sharing Halve blood. However, when her home is attacked, she is forced to confront the Halves in their stronghold. But nothing is as it seems.

This story is so amazing and did me a lot of good during my Throne Of Glass series withdrawal. Hemera, Mer to her friends, is the kind of kick-ass heroine that makes Bisecter such a thrilling adventure. She is so unbelievably strong and would do anything to save the lives of those she loves. I loved the way she handled betrayal. Where so many characters spend time bemoaning a traitor, Hemera sets out to make the world right in the best way she can. The world of the Duskers and Dwellers is vivid in its detail. Fans of high fantasy will find this to be a great series to start. Fast-paced action, romance and wonderful characters make this a book worth buying. The action doesn’t stop there as there are more books to enjoy in Stephanie Fazio’s amazing series.
