CHARACTERS The Exercise of Vital Powers

SUMMARY ✓ The Exercise of Vital Powers Er may realiseArrogant manipulative confrontational and angry Undesirable ualities in a person at the best of times but so in a young woman born with the power to bring kingdoms to their knees Kayden Jayta precocious apprentice of The Order is all these things and yet wholly unwilling to acknowledge and rectify her many troubling traitsUnbeknown to anyone Kayden’s resolute determination to join the ranks of The Order is born of a secret that puts her priorit. Ian Gregoire owes Kitty G a beer Or even better two I suppose no one expected she would choose this book as her favorite one in one of her SPFBO semi final group of five especially that contenders were very strong I guess that s the beauty of the contest We tend to believe in books we hear about on blogs and boards but there s a lot of gems that remain undiscovered SPFBO has the power to change it At least a bitThe Exercise of Vital Powers is a book that describes events of two meaningful days The story focuses on Zarantar magic system apprentice Kayden Jayta She s special But not in a usual way For Kayden failure is not an option She is manipulative willing to use and exploit other people for her own ends with no regard for the conseuences She is confrontational believing power should be employed to cow people to impose her will upon them She treats most people in a condescending way approaching them as mentally challenged simpletons She has no sense of authority in order to reach a goal she s ready to beat a teacher senseless and steal his memories of the event As you may guess she s not the most popular person on the campus It would be safe to say she s most hated one At one stage of the story she s described as follows You must not have been paying attention I smile all the time No you don t You smirk A withering smirk to let the recipients know they are less significant than the dirt beneath your boot Angsty and arrogant teenagers aren t that rare however when they have the power to bring kingdoms to their knees they may stress out their teachers a bit Kayden may become a huge asset to The Order organization that keeps peace in The Nine Kingdoms She may also become a harbinger of death and destruction as the history of the lore teaches us Of course Kayden doesn t fully realize her full potential She has other priorities her resolute determination to join the ranks of The Order is born of a secret that puts her priorities at odds with the precepts of the organization setting her inexorably on a collision course with the most powerful institution in The Nine KingdomsThe books focuses on Kayden choosing her path Some other conflicts are mentioned some subplots are sketched but The Exercise of Vital Powers is a book about Kayden There s no bigger agenda there s no political intrigue Only Kayden and her choicesI love dislikable characters Sherlock Holmes agent Pendergast Repairman Jack I love characters who have darkness in them Royce Melborne Faran I love rebels and outcast however at times it was really difficult for me to like Kayden For such an intelligent person her deduction and reading of others were sometimes surprisingly ineffective But it s not even a criticism I just warn you Kayden is at times unlikable and irritatingOverall I really liked the book While it was unpolished in places it was really difficult to put it down The story sucked me literally since the beginning And by beginning I mean page number 1 It wasn t necessary to go through several chapters to get into the world In the first chapter we learn a lot about Kayden and her school The next chapters and story development kept me entertained and engaged in the plot until I reached approximately 78 % of the book At this point the writing became a bit clumsier and less to the pointA lot happened but it lacked finesse in execution We reach climax at around 85 % of the book and some changes are a bit fetched Also the last part of the book is focused on the dialogue between characters Through this dialogue we learn about the world magic system and other things which isn t bad in itself The thing is the tone of the book changes significantly and becomes unbelievable even in the light of all the described events I m not saying it wouldn t finally happen Probably it would but gradually and in few months time The ending lacks any tension and it tells too much instead of showing things in subtle waysOverall TEOVP being a debut work is a good book that every fan of character driven fantasy should try to read I believe that a ruthless editor could help to make it an excellent book Some things need improvement My personal belief is that the ending should be concise Having said that I encourage you to try the book as it manages to do something that s not very common in a fantasy world It really grabs your attention from the first page and keeps you invested for few hundred pagesReal rating 3755
