Dreg (The Dreg Trilogy Book 1) Kindle Edition
The Order has a secret.
And they’ll kill to keep it hidden.
Mara is a dreg. She can't manipulate water with the flick of her hand, juggle fireballs over her head, or grow crops in barren land with her power. Compared to the Gifted in Stonehollow, she might as well be dirt.
With no magic of her own, each day is a struggle to find her place in a hostile village where the Gifted would rather see her dead.
For eighteen years, she's struggled to understand why the old Magi had refused to awaken her Gift on her first birthday.
But he's taken his secrets to the grave.
When the Order sends a new Magi to replace the old, Mara knows she’s doomed. He's handsome and charming, and for some reason, he won’t leave her alone. But can she trust him?
When Mara uncovers a dangerous secret, she must flee the Order who will do anything to capture her before she can expose their corruption.
Because if the truth gets out, the consequences will be catastrophic.
The Dreg Trilogy is a clean YA Fantasy with magic, adventure, and a slow-burn romance.

The main character, Mara, is daring, impulsive and compassionate. Some of her actions are reckless but all are believable. Mara lives in a beautiful world where almost everyone is born with a magical ability. The unfortunate few that don’t have a gift are called dregs and treated like useless outcasts.
Despite being treated poorly by society, Mara is warm-hearted and readers will root for her as she is propelled onto an adventurous quest. The main cast of characters grew on me and the mysteries kept me reading as I tried to figure out who could be trusted and who would surprise me next.
If you like young adult fantasy with a female protagonist, magical realms and adventurous quests, then I highly recommend this debut novel by Bethany Hoeflich!
In this case, I am grateful that my terrible decision making did not indeed get in the way.
Dreg is a fine example of well-written literature and a story that I will read again and again. As I write this, I chomp at the bit for Gifted. I absolutely loved the world building! The Kerani being my favorite! My only true reservations about the story was the grammatical errors but no one is perfect so really, that's me just being anal. 10/10 will read again.
Bethany, you have redeemed young adult fiction for me. Bravo! From one author to another.
