Elysium Girls Blog Tour

In this sweeping Dust Bowl-inspired fantasy, a ten-year game between Life and Death pits the walled Oklahoma city of Elysium-including a girl gang of witches and a demon who longs for humanity-against the supernatural in order to judge mankind.

When Sal is named Successor to Mother Morevna, a powerful witch and leader of Elysium, she jumps at the chance to prove herself to the town. Ever since she was a kid, Sal has been plagued by false visions of rain, and though people think she's a liar, she knows she's a leader. Even the arrival of enigmatic outsider Asa-a human-obsessed demon in disguise-doesn't shake her confidence in her ability. Until a terrible mistake results in both Sal and Asa's exile into the Desert of Dust and Steel.

Face-to-face with a brutal, unforgiving landscape, Sal and Asa join a gang of girls headed by another Elysium exile-and young witch herself-Olivia Rosales. In order to atone for their mistake, they create a cavalry of magic powered, scrap metal horses to save Elysium from the coming apocalypse. But Sal, Asa, and Olivia must do more than simply tip the scales in Elysium's favor-only by reinventing the rules can they beat the Life and Death at their own game.

Elysium Girls by Kate Pentecost had great characters. Elysium has been chosen to be the new game board for a game of life and death. The residents of Elysium has 10 years to build a thriving society or face certain death.The city is walled so there is no in or out for its residents.

I think the only thing I really enjoyed about this book is the characters. Pentecost definitely wrote some great characters. I found the plot quite confusing. The world building didn't have much to it and I was really disappointed in the fact that the magic system wasn't more thought out.

If you want to get to know some great characters definitely check out Elysium Girls. I really did enjoy these fantastic characters.
