#1 New York Times Bestseller

Set during the time of the New York Times bestseller Powerless, fan favorite Adena gets a story all her own in this captivating novella as she attempts to survive on the streets of Loot…and falls for a mysterious—and dangerous—Elite.

Adena and Paedyn have always been inseparable. Fate brought them together when they were young, but friendship ensured they would always protect each other and the home they built in the slums of Loot. But now Paedyn—an Ordinary—has been selected for the Purging Trials, which means almost certain death.

Now alone in Loot, Adena must fend for herself. After attempting to steal, she’s rescued by a mysterious man from the market. Mak’s shadowy past and secretive power set him apart from the other low-level Elites of Loot. And as the pair team up to see their loved ones before the Trials, the quest tests their loyalty, their love, and their lives.

This novella also includes a special extended teaser to Reckless—the exciting sequel to Powerless!

Powerful is a compelling addition to the Powerless world. The bubbly personality of Adena stars in her own story about meeting grumpy Mak during the time that Paedyn is whisked off to the trials at the palace. The sunshine and grumpy trope is the perfect match for Adena’s character.
I am in full support of the way their relationship deepens during the novella and devoured this story quickly. You should read Powerless to fully understand the context of this story. If you have read Powerless then you know the ending regarding Adena’s character. That makes for a dramatic ending here as well as we flesh out that portion of the story from her perspective.
Overall, this was a wonderful revisit into the world that Lauren Roberts has created. It whets our appetite for the sequel, where we will hopefully have Mak joining to play a role in what happens next. I look forward to seeing what happens.
