About The Charm:

Extraordinary powers come with a price.

Fifteen year old Luca has the charm, a gift he inherited from his mum. Charmers can control minds, but they abide by a code—to only use the power for good, and only with the person’s permission. Luca knows breaking the code is wrong, and his mum would kill him if he tried!

But when a rogue charmer uses the power for criminal means, the Restorative government jumps in. Luca’s mum is imprisoned and the Register for Charmers is announced. The media creates a frenzy of fear and suspicion against charmers.

Believing the family is in peril, and wishing to keep Luca’s gift a secret, Luca’s dad takes them to stay with a friend in the country. Here, Luca meets Fee, a computer genius who can hack into anything. Fee introduces Luca to an underground rebellion group of internet hackers who have their own issues with the Restoratives and their own way of protesting.

Fearful of how the Restoratives are treating his mum in prison and concerned about their motives for creating the Register of Charmers, Luca must make an impossible choice—break the rules and use his gift or stand by and watch as the power is abused.

Bookaholic’s Review:

 The Charm is brilliantly written. It is fast paced and full of conflict- both internal and external. I’m not real familiar with Dystopic fiction But I would have to say that the world these characters live in is fast becoming such a society. The government is exerting an unfair amount of control and they are trying to build a power base on fear and manipulation. I enjoyed the conflicting perspectives on the overreaches of government. As is often the trend with this type of story, it is up to the younger people to make a move against tyranny but making that move may involve sacrifices that the characters may not understand.

I found the story compelling. The characters were likable and the factors that drive them felt genuine- protective urges towards family and friends, a sense of justice, survival- all of these motivators made for a very intriguing tale. After I reached the end, I found myself wanting more. Of course this one rates a 10. I hope the author continues the story because I would love to see what happens next.
