Review: Varient Lost by Kaydence Snow

Variant Lost
Evelyn Maynard Trilogy #1
Kindle Edition,
373 pages
Published November 12th, 2018

When Evelyn Maynard receives a scholarship to the exclusive Bradford Hills Institute, she’s determined to make a fresh start. The Institute is world-renowned for educating and training Variants – the 18% of the population fortunate enough to have superhuman abilities. As a human, she’s lucky to be admitted.

She’s done with fake identities, running and lying but once again she finds herself surrounded by secrets.

Some she’s been keeping her whole life.

Some have been kept from her.

Some she finds herself dragged into…

Ethan, Josh, Tyler and Alec have some of the rarest Variant abilities Evelyn has ever seen. They fascinate, intrigue and attract her, but is it their abilities, their own secrets or something more that Evelyn can’t seem to stay away from? The secrets they keep could drag Evelyn so deep into their dangerous and exciting world that she’ll never be the same.

And the answers she finds could get them all killed.

My Review:
Varient Lost was such a fun book. I have only read one other book by Kaydence Snow, but I've been hooked ever since. She has an amazing way with characters and world-building that I found immensely enjoyable.

Evelyn or Eve has been on the run since she was five-years-old. While living in Australia she made the mistake of finally making friends and when her mother found out, they packed up and left. On the flight to L.A. a horrible accident happens that sends Eve's mother and the other passengers of the flight flying from the plane leaving Eve and the co-pilot as the only survivors.

While Eve is living with her foster parents she gets a letter awarding her a position at the Bradford Hills Institute. The institute allows Varients (superpowered humans), Vitals (battery-powered humans), and humans to coexist and learn together. Jumping on the opportunity Eve leaves the next morning. What she finds is a group of friends and a community she finally feels like she belongs. She meets Tyler, Josh, Alec, and Ethan, all boys she has a deep connection with that could lead to danger.

I very much enjoyed this story. There's so much mystery and amazing world-building that I never knew what to expect next. I loved the characters and can't wait to see how much they grow as a group. There's loss and pain and it's just beyond beautifully done. Varient Lost is a definite must-read.

Kaydence Snow has lived all over the world but ended up settled in Melbourne, Australia. She lives near the beach with her husband and a beagle that has about as much attitude as her human.

She draws inspiration from her own overthinking, sometimes frightening imagination, and everything that makes life interesting: complicated relationships, unexpected twists, new experiences, and good food and coffee. Life is not worth living without good food and coffee!

She believes sarcasm is the highest form of wit and has the vocabulary of a highly educated, well-read sailor. When she's not writing, thinking about writing, planning when she can write next, or reading other people's writing, she loves to travel and learn new things.
