I love to read and will read pretty much anything but I really love to escape into fantasy novels. This year I have been reading the Obernewtyn Chronicles by Isobelle Carmody. They are set in a post-apocolyptic world. The Land where the series begins is ruled by The Council with the help of the religious Herder Faction. People or animals born with mutations are burned and any dissent is brutally dealt with. Some people are born with enhanced mental abilities and are called Misfits. The story follows Elspeth Cordie a young girl with the ability to read minds and communicate with beasts. I've really enjoyed them the only problem is that now I have to wait for the final book.
