Revue de presse

USA Today, "Happily Ever After" (blog), October 9, 2012:
"The characters themselves, especially Aria, are what drive this book. I love deep and complex stuff, I love the cover, I love Theo's writing and the Mystic City world...This novel is for fans of mind games, rebels, heartache and intrigue."

Kirkus Reviews
, May 15, 2012:
"A gripping Romeo-and-Juliet exploration of deception, espionage, revolution, the greater good and love conquering all—with the aid of magical green lights and a peculiar little locket."

Publishers Weekly, September 3, 2012:
"Debut author Lawrence’s writing is assured."

School Library Journal, January 2013:
"This book marries a fast-paced plot with likable, developed characters, set in a future Manhattan that is all too believable...The plot takes other twists and turns as the protagonist learns about the Mystics and the scope of her own family’s power. Hand this book to fans of Gabrielle Zevin’s All These Things I’ve Done and other urban dystopias with strong female characters."


From the Hardcover edition.

Présentation de l'éditeur

For fans of Matched, The Hunger Games, X-Men, and Blade Runner comes a tale of a magical city divided, a political rebellion ignited, and a love that was meant to last forever. Book One of the Mystic City Novels.

Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.

Mystic City est pour moi le roman de l'année 2014 ! Une romance, de l'action, de la manipulation et du complot. Tous les éléments sont réunis dans cet ouvrage pour faire de ce roman un véritable coup de cœur qui saura s'imposer dans le monde livresque...

Nous entamons notre lecture avec un univers très riche et surtout très réaliste. Un monde totalement moderne et futuriste, très séduisant mais qui à sa part de défauts. Un réchauffement climatique, l'augmentation du niveau des mers, un éventail de questions qui nous préoccupe aujourd'hui et qui apporte au roman toute la crédibilité qui m'a séduit. D'autre part, l'auteur a su créer un univers vraiment complet qui donne au récit une grande profondeur.
Ce monde est réparti en deux « camps » : d'un côté nous avons les mystiques, des hommes aux pouvoirs magiques, et de l'autre les humains. Ils se livrent un combat acharné : les humains, qui vivent dans les hauteurs, dominent les Mystiques qui quant à eux vivent dans les bas-fonds. Une représentation, qui m'a un peu fait penser au Paradis et à l'Enfer d'après les descriptions de l'auteur, qui nous offre une vision très féerique, très aérienne des hauteurs et chaotiques et meurtris des bas-fonds mais qui garde toutefois un certain charme ...

C'est une version moderne du monde que nous découvrons les deux personnages principaux : Aria et Hunter. On nous parle sur la première de couverture d'une version moderne de Roméo et Juliette, c'est vraiment le sentiment que j'ai ressenti en lisant ce roman.

Imaginez un monde où l’herbe est un concept obscur dont on n’a que vaguement entendu parlé, que la destruction d’un building est une occasion pour faire la fête et que les gondoles sont un moyen de transport comme un autres. Ca y est, vous êtes captivé par l’univers de Mystic City ?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A gripping tale of love, loss, betrayal and salvation 31 octobre 2014
Par Tammy Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The story opens with a couple being torn apart, separated from each other. It’s a story of loss, love and hopefully, redemption.

Aria Rose can’t remember anything. Well, she can remember some things, like her parents, her friends, her home and close acquaintances, but she can’t remember her fiancé or anything about their secret love affair. She only knows what she’s been told, that she overdosed on a drug called Stic, which is made from Mystic energy. The overdose has left her with selective amnesia.

Her fiancé, Thomas, is from the other side of the river, literally. Aria’s father is a powerful man. He controls half the city. Thomas is from a rival family, The Fosters, and they control the other side of the city. Manhattan is partially submerged. The poor and the second class citizens live in the Depths, down below, while the reach and powerful live above in tall buildings called the Aeries.

The Roses and Fosters have been at war with each other for so long, but Aria is going to bridge the two families together. She’s been told that she was sneaking off to the Depths to have secret rendezvous with Thomas since neither family would approve. Now that they have been discovered, their relationship has been brought out into the open and made public. For the first time, the two families will unite in a common cause. To win the upcoming election and prevent a Mystic from getting a foothold in the governing of the city. To bring peace to the city and wipe out the threat of a Mystic uprising.

Aria has it all; beauty, money, privilege, a handsome fiancé. They will be the toast of the town, they will pave the way towards a new future of peace and prosperity. There’s only one problem. How can Aria marry someone she doesn’t remember and doesn’t remember loving?

On the surface, she may look like she has it all, but in her heart, she feels different. She questions why she can’t remember. She has dreams, nightmares really, of a faceless boy she assumes is Thomas. She tries to peace her memory together so she can remember him, their love, but the more she tries to remember, the more questions she unearths.

Does she love Thomas? Does she even know Thomas? Is her family telling her the truth about her overdose and memory loss? Who is the Mystic boy who keeps saving her life? Are the Mystics really the threat the people of the Aeries believe them to be?

The deeper she digs, the more lies she uncovers and she will stop at nothing to regain her memories and learn the truth. What she finds, though, will alter her perception of the truth forever. No one is what they seem. Loyalties are tested and Aria will have to decide which side she is on and how much is she willing to sacrifice in the name of love.

The story swept me up for the very first page and would not let me go until I had finished the story. I found the story at times to be chilling not knowing who to trust or believe. Who do you believe when you can’t believe your own memories? And how do you keep hope alive when it seems all hope is gone?

Short version: I freaking LOVED Mystic City!

First of all, that cover? It's just STUNNING! And I just adore that background with all it's colors and sparks!

So, let's be honest. I basically love any dystopian book that has magic in it too. And I actually love amnesia stories, so my expectations were very, very high. And while Mystic City didn't exceed them, it did meet them! And honestly? That was good enough. I loved the characters, world building, romance, plot, you name it!

So while the plot was actually pretty predictable (at times! Then again, my mind may have been to busy with how much I loved the book to notice any holes) I was shocked at many, many points in the story. Some things I realized I should've predicted, but I just...didn't. But they're those things that you know an author can't do to a character, but you're so caught up in the story you just forget all literary knowledge you could say! The plot honestly was far from slow. There were memories that couldn't make sense with what Aria was told, things that she knows that just didn't add up. And that made this story just WONDERFUL. I loved piecing together clues and jumping when I got it right! It wasn't very obvious unless you were err...pretty desperate to figure out what was going on! I had a vague idea, but it wasn't confirmed until...meh. Just read it! I'm telling y'all, I loved the plot and pacing!

Character-wise, Aria was a bit weak and naive in the beginning, but you'd have to expect it. After all, her memory basically disappeared, she's supposedly in love with her family's biggest enemy (who, by the way, is acting pretttyyy distant and practical. Who can only fact act love for only so long.), and she feels connected to a rebel mystic. So of course she'll be a bit confused! And while some of y'all may find it a bit irritating at how gullible she is, I just wanted to shake the people around her for lying to her! She was at her weakest point and they were abusing her...but that was pretty much the point of her memory loss. *cough*

Romace? No no, it wasn't insta-love! It seems like it and it sounds like it from the synopsis and saying this probably gives you the tip-off, but this was not insta-love. Not at all. Aria just doesn't quite realize it. And I LOVED the romance, contrary to what other people think. So, no. Not insta-love!
And Hunter? Not a bad love interest either! He was SO sweet and fierce and caring and basically your typical, swoony, YA guy! Which is a compliment!

Okay, so when I said world-building, I guess I meant the descriptions of the world! The world itself? It wasn't very dystopian, actually. They basically used our modern tech, just using different names and making the world less...worldly? It had history of the turning point, but nothing really came out of it besides the mystics--and we don't even know how the mystics came to be! Was it genetic mutation or something? Something someone was just randomly born with? I'm not sure.

But then, like I said, the writing was just spectacular! The descriptions were wonderfully written, but it wasn't boring. There was actually a few transitions so it wasn't all choppy like the books I've recently read (no names!) But the main point was the descriptions...they were just so visual for me!

DEFINITELY read Mystic City if you're a fan (like I am!) of fantasy and those amazing amnesia stories! This was a seriously stunning debut and I can't wait for Renegade Heart, book 2 in this wonderful series! Mystic City will sweep you off your feet with a real Romeo and Juliet kind of romance...just without most of the sappiness, and with tons more stuff standing in their way!

This was a tricky one for me...

What I liked: The world-building. The world is fascinating and vividly depicted. I loved the idea of a literally stratified society and really enjoyed the magical element to this otherwise dystopian tale.

What I didn't like: The characters. They all seemed rather flat. Who was Aria? What were her hobbies? What did she care about? What music did she listen to? Why would someone fall in love with her? She had no quirks or endearing qualities other than that she was beautiful. There was a huge emphasis on looks in this story. The whole romance seemed to be based on nothing more than physical attraction - possible but rather superficial and that irked me. The fact that Aria seemed to notice what everyone was wearing and how their legs looked in shorts even in moments of crises was just ridiculous. Perhaps this is a symptom of a man writing a teenage girl and thinking that's what teen girls are like. They are not. Teen girls are far more emotional than Aria ever appeared to be. Shedding a few tears doesn't count as emotion. Had I been in her situation, I would have been hysterical, overwhelmed by emotion, fighting tooth and nail for what I believed in but she seemed rather detached from it all. Aria is not a strong female lead and lets herself get jostled around by the all the boys in this story making her rather pathetic to be honest. And Hunter - the bad boy love interest. Other than having a ripped bod and blue eyes, what was so great about him? Just another personality lacking character who paled in comparison to his friend Turk who at least seemed to have some spunk.

And lastly, if a story claims a tie to Romeo and Juliet, I expect a lot more than a few balcony scenes and a superficial nod to two of the greatest literary characters ever.

Overall, the story was a bit bland and predictable, despite the incredible world-building. While this story had so much potential to be awesome, I think it never quite lived up to that promise.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Why Aria? 12 novembre 2012
Par Amelia Gremelspacher - Publié sur Amazon.com

This young adult novel has a clever premise. New York City has flooded due to global warming. The lower depths of the city have been compromised and are now the home of the poor and the underclass. As one would suspect, the dry upper region of the city is reserved for the rich and powerful. In a second interesting premise, the lower class includes a shadowy group of people, the mystics. We spend a good chunk of the novel finding out about their powers and how they have come to be cast down.
My biggest reservation on this novel is the narrator. Like many young adult novels, the narrator is a young girl who has attracted a powerful member of a group outside her own. But because she is the narrator, we dont really understand the strength of her hold over her lover and his group. Her lover's family and friends have large issues to address, yet they risk it all to unite him with Aria. In fact, for much of this novel, she doesnt remember him. The rest would be too large a spoiler. This is the handicap I have seen in a number of young adult books with the exception of the Hunger Games.
This book is the first of the ubiquitous trilogy format, so we may yet find out why Aria. The settings and story line of Mystic City are good enough to try the next book. I did enjoy reading it, I just want the characters to let me know more about themselves.

This book is by far the greatest. For starters, when i read books-to me- the characters names don't necessarily fit their personality (besides hunger games and divergent- even though Allegiant sucked on so many levels and was poorly written) Theo Lawrence, not only does he choose the best names that fit the characters, but somehow he managed to keep me on my toes. I read a lot of books and because of that I can practically predict what's going go happen next. I've been searching for a book that would not only peek my interest but keep me guessing. HOLY HELL This book is a huge 10/10.
