“Banewind by Matt B. Chapman is a fantastic meld of young adult romance and fantasy. Eighteen-year-old Genevieve DeWinter is a normal high school girl whose world changes abruptly after she discovers a group of magical beings known as Formulists. They inhabit a world known as Banewind. The arrival of mages in her hometown eventually leads to the startling revelation that Genevieve comes from a long line of female protectors of the Holy Guardian. As powerful secrets begin to be laid bare, her life is in grave danger because she is the target of the group of Formulists that believes she is the key to resurrecting the Void King. While fighting to stay alive, she must, with help from her friends, find a way to stop the Voidweavers from plunging the world into chaos.

“Banewind is a story with a twisty plot and believable characters. Genevieve is a captivating female protagonist and I enjoyed how meticulously her inner world is written. Apart from the mystery she has to unravel, kissing Jensen has been enough to arouse emotions she is unable to contain. The romance is skillfully written and it fleshes out the plot while deepening character development. The internal dialogues are well-written and I enjoyed how they pulled me into the minds of the characters. An example is when Jensen gets closer to Genevieve and speaks, she concludes, in her mind, that if voices were fabric, “his would be softer than silk.” The writing is spectacular, at times lyrical, and sprinkled with poetry that adds to the sense of mystery already dominating the narrative. Matt B. Chapman has the gift for writing realistic dialogues and he uses them to create a relentless drama that keeps readers racing through the pages. Banewind is a smartly written fantasy spiced with young romance; it contains all the elements that create a delicious novel.”
