“Transfer” by Lexi Cook is a tale about a dying world.  Food is scarce.  Crops fail to thrive as they should.  Life for Creed has become solely about survival.  He traverses the wilderness around his home praying he will find sustenance not only to provide for his family but for his whole community.  The only one left to care for his pregnant mother, and desperate to engender a better world for his unborn sibling, he undertakes a mission to travel to Bernaf in search of the feared Bane Witch.  She is believed to be the reason behind the dying world, and he intends to make her pay.  Rue, meanwhile, is the only known individual to have a full pentagon, or five lines, of magic.  Exploited by a mentor and council at her famed new school, she is forced to realize that what she once dreamed of goes against everything she believes.  Two young people must fight against their own fears, the greed of a corrupt society, and a world that might be failing too fast for them to save. read more
