Book review: Pandora Syndrome – April Wahlin (@aprilwahlin)

Pandora died on the day she was born. She had been out celebrating her twenty-first birthday with her brother 51cJqzOrjvLand best friend. Unfortunately, she had been separated from them. But the last day of her life became the beginning of a new and possibly eternal chapter. There was more to her death than a random act, and more to her than met the eye. Her grandmother had always called her devil girl, and as she realises the extent of her new powers she understands why. But attempting to fit into her new life is not the only challenge. Someone, or something, is pursuing her, determined to finish what they had started on the night she should have died. Can she uncover the truth and find a way to protect herself and those she holds dear, or will she continue to put everyone in her life in danger?

Pandora Syndrome is a paranormal, urban fantasy written by April Walin. I enjoyed it so much that after reading the final page the first thing I did was try to find the next book, sadly it isn’t out yet, but I will be keeping an eye out for it, and perhaps explore the earlier books in the Stories of Ithria collection. I loved Pandora as a character, she has such a vivid personality you can’t help but like her. She is a well-rounded and believable with good growth, just like the characters who are the supporting role in her tale. I was hooked on this book beginning to end, and loved the necromancer aspects that were woven throughout. I don’t want to give anything away, but it was a thrilling, action-packed, and tension-filled read, with romance, danger, and discovery. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next instalment.
