Review: Hinder - Kristin Ping

Hinder by Kristin Ping
Release Date:  May 15, 2018

Ethan Sutcliff seems like a normal seventeen-year-old—at least that’s what he’s trying to portray. In a secret society run by the Supernaturals, Ethan is what witches call a Bender. Benders are Witches’ Guardians, who are able to control a witches’ ability, bend it, or move it away from harming humans. In Ethan’s case, he is able to bend the Earth element. But at the age of fifteen, he lost all connection to it, and the reasons behind it could only mean one of two things: His Wielder is either dead, or hiding out somewhere.

Alex Burgendorf has been living in her aunt’s locket for the past sixteen years with her mother—a Fire Wielder, and her father—a Water Wielder. For sixteen years, her parents vowed to protect her, and they have, as she is the last Earth wielding witch. However, time is running out. Alex must find her Bender, or the fate of the Supernaturals might be at stake.

A departure from my normal romance novels, Hinder was just the break I needed.  Kristin Ping really outdid herself in creating a unique world and mythos that drew me in and kept me enthralled from beginning to end.  It was absolutely magical.  The characters are well-written--they have both flaws and strengths and each is individual to the character.  They were real and genuine seeming.

Alex has been hidden all her life.  She's spunky, weary, and ready to live outside her aunt's locket.  Ethan is an All American boy.  He's a football player, popular, and a little bit cocky.  The two of them are destined for each other, but not in the way you think.  I loved this unique twist to Ping's story.  There was plenty of action to keep this paranormal junkie happy and just enough romance to keep the romance junkie in me happy.  It's a clean one, all sex is kept behind closed doors so to speak so don't go in looking for smut.

If you like young adult paranormal, this is definitely a book you want to pick up.
