Review: Earth Bound By: Aprilynne Pike

Earthbound (Earthbound, #1)Earthbound by Aprilynne Pike
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

More accurately I would give this 3.5 stars.
Tavia is on the mend, miraculously surviving a plane crash that killed her mother and father along with everyone else on that plane. With her body broken and damaged she is released into the custody of her step-Aunt and Uncle.
Tavia has made a friend in Benson, a guy from the library that she wants more from, she goes to therapy with Elizabeth, lives in a small town and all seems normal that is until...
The world has an epidemic of a disease that is 100% fatal and is only spreading at a rapid rate, a man, Quinn, dressed in period costume makes contact with her, seeing triangles that glow, a mysterious person with sunglasses follows her, she manifests objects from nothing, and soon everything she thought she knew she doesn't.
Tavia is an Earthbound, a goddess that from the beginning had a job - to create. Over many lifetimes and with the one she is supposed to be joined with..Quinn. Caught in a war between the Curatoria and Reduciata, Tavia must find out who she is, what she is capable of, and what she must do next.
This is the beginning of a series and although I liked the premise and the action, I have to ask do I want to continue on this series. It was good but there is a lack of the magic that first drew me to Aprilynne Pike in her Wings series. Maybe this is best saved for checking out at the library or buying second hand and putting on a TBR shelf.
