Review of Trickster's Girl by Hilari Bell

In the year 2098 America isn't so different from the USA of today. But, in a post-9/11 security-obssessed world, "secured" doesn't just refer to borders between countries, it also refer to borders between states. Teenagers still think they know everything, but there is no cure for cancer, as Kelsa knows first-hand from watching her father die.
The night Kelsa buries her father, a boy appears. He claims magic is responsible for the health of Earth, but human damage disrupts its flow. The planet is dying.
Kelsa has the powers to reverse the damage, but first she must accept that magic exists and see beyond her own pain in order to heal the planet.

 Although this is classed as a Sci-Fi novel I would recommend it lovers of Fantasy/Adventure/Dystopian due to there being more Fantasy elements in the story than Sci-Fi. There is futuristic elements but nothing particularly heavy – unless a futuristic coffee machine is too much for you. It also reads like a fantasy novel.
Kelsa and Raven fight like an old married couple which is quite hilarious. There's plenty of sarcastic comments in here!
I really enjoyed this story, especially the suspenseful moments but... I was disappointed with the ending. I felt it was rather rushed and not the ending I was hoping for. For instance, as you'd expect, Kelsa and Raven were flirting with each other all the way through and I was waiting for them to get their act together and at least kiss. There was barely a cuddle! That was very disappointing, especially as that's what you'd expect from a YA novel.

4/5
