Juno’s beloved Petra is dead.
Petra’s replacement, the mysterious Lady, has put Juno’s best friend Tilly under a dark spell that has left Juno with nobody she can trust.
With only Chax, her kitten, for company, Juno escapes from her school to a town at the bottom of the cliffs.
A town ruled by men.
Alone, scared, and without friends, Juno feels an unknown power growing inside her. A power she knows she will one day have to harness. With all lost, a dark figure from within the shadows cups her mouth and whispers in her ear to keep quiet.
Juno joins her new friends but just as she starts to learn how the world really works, the ill-tempered Dr Viktor demands an audience.
Juno and the Lady is a young woman’s journey into a land of the old ways, where men rule, and women are property.
With unlikely friendships, forbidden love and burning magic, can Juno change the conventions of old? Can she save the town? And will she figure out who the Lady truly is?
Juno and the Lady by G.J. Kemp is a good YA Fantasy read that held my interest from beginning to end. The world building is very intriguing and I enjoyed the author’s ability to blend it in with the story rather than info dumping.
In the beginning, it felt a little rushed and things weren’t developed completely. However, as the story progresses, things develop more clearly and I think the second half of the book was very strong.
The characters are well developed and likeable. I enjoyed the growth and this story focuses on friendship, which I found refreshing! The characters acted in ways that made sense, which I thoroughly found enjoyable.
This is an entertaining YA read with plenty of answers yet to come, I’m sure. I recommend giving this one a read!
