Title: Wisteria
Author: Bisi Leyton
Series: Wisteria #1
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Published: August 15th 2012

Book Description

Sixteen year old Wisteria Kuti has two options—track the infected around the Isle of Smythe or leave the only known safe haven and face a world infested with flesh eating biters. But even with well-armed trackers, things go wrong and Wisteria ends up alone facing certain death, until she is rescued by the mysterious Bach. Uninfected, Bach is able to survive among the hordes of living dead.

Eighteen year old Bach, from a race known as The Family, has no interest in human affairs. He was sent here to complete his Great Walk and return home as a man—as a Sen Son. The Family regard humans as Dirt People, but Bach is drawn to this Terran girl, whom he has never seen before, but somehow knows.

Hunted by flesh eaters, cannibals, and the mysterious blood thirsty group called Red Phoenix, Wisteria and Bach make their way back to the Isle of Smythe, a community built on secrets and lies.

What a great start to the Wisteria series!! I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Bisi Leyton has written a fabulous novel, showing us what life would be like if a plague hit the earth and if you were bitten you turned into a flesh eating biter. There are Supernatural people who can cross into our world and the disease has no effect on them. Those of the unaffected people who remain are all in colonies so that the ‘biters’ can’t get in. If you have seen the movie ‘I Am Legend,’ this could be the sequel to that, but with a few Supernatural’s thrown in!!

Wisteria is a 16 year old girl who lives in one of the colonies and works as a tracker. She doesn’t have any real friends on the island so she spends most of her time by herself if she isn’t working. She is a quiet girl, but if she is confronted by any of the other teenagers she doesn’t hold back and stands up for herself.

Two of the unaffected girls go missing when she is out patrolling with her Mother and Andrew. They locate the two girls and Wisteria goes in to get them alone. Soon they are surrounded by the biters and are on the run. In swoops Bach to save Wisteria, but instead of just returning her to the colony, he takes her back to his home.

Bach is a self-assured person. He sees himself as a higher being than the Terrans/Humans- they are more like pests for him. But for some reason he rescues Wisteria. There is something about her that he is drawn to and it is confusing for him. He wants to keep her close until he finds out more about her. He is very attractive, has the perfect body and supernatural powers, now who doesn’t want a guy like that??

I love the buildup of this story, getting to know the characters and watching their connection grow. I had no idea which way the story was headed and I was kept in suspense right up to the very end! It has plenty of action and a fascinating plot and I can’t wait to see what Bisi Leyton has for us next!!

Title: Myopia
Author: Bisi Leyton
Series: Wisteria #2
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance
Published: November 9th 2012

Book Description

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.

When Bach's father, the powerful Sen of The Third Pillar, hears rumors that his son has been willingly communing with free humans, the Sen decrees that Bach is to name a girl from the Family as his intended and pledge his life to her—something Bach as no intention of doing.

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.
