Wisteria & Myopia Blog Tour: Review

Title: Myopia
Author: Bisi Leyton

Goodreads Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Wisteria has embraced her deep bond with eighteen-year-old Bach, a member of a supernatural race called the Family, despite the risk of his family finding out. Should Bach’s people discover his bond with a human, Wisteria will be guaranteed a painful and bloody death—but somehow, being together is more important. 

Their bond is tested when empirics, an elite group of Family investigators, are sent to the Isle of Smythe under the orders of Bach’s father to find artifacts stolen by the humans. They’re to find the artifacts at any cost. Among the empirics is Bach’s old friend, the stunning Alba, who has learned about Bach and Wisteria’s secret relationship, and surprisingly accepts this. With no one else in the Family to turn to, she becomes Bach’s ally and confidant, but possibly more. 

As the empirics start to take over the town, Wisteria is torn between trusting Bach and the safety of the humans on Smythe. She soon realizes that she and Bach are on opposite sides of the war between the Family and Humans, and there is no middle ground. One of them must choose a side.


As I probably mentioned before, I don't usually know what to write when I'm reviewing a second book in a series, unless there's so many developments and new ideas added in, but otherwise I can't add much.

It was actually a while since I read the last book "Wisteria" in this series, so it took me some time to get back into the story and once I did a surge of emotions rushed back to me, like the girls on the island and what they had done to Wisteria in book one, man did I hate those girls! I also dislike how Bisi hadn't done some form of retribution for what they did. And Wisteria's brother? He's seriously  just as bad for letting them do that and get away!

I honestly had no clue what to expect in this book, but oh Gosh, it's really good! I mean so many things escalate and go out of hand, and a lot of mix-ups occur, but yes, it's just as good as book one! I do love Bisi's writing and that the "zombie" side of things isn't so much more than I can handle, though they appear a lot more in this book. There are also some scenes where they were gross, but all in all, a great read!

Rating: 3.5/5
