  • Karleigh.Reads

    You can find me @ KARLEIGH READSI received this book for free from the author for an honest review.From reading the summary I had really high hopes for this book, it sounded really interesting and something that I would really get into to, which I did for the first couple chapters but then it started to go down hill from there, sadly. I loved the idea of another world, just out of reach, just out of sight, but this book just didn't grab me the way I expected it would.I felt like the main charact [...]

  • Cranky - The Book Curmudgeon

    **** 5 Cranky Stars ****Schism: a split of division between strongly opposed sections or parties caused by differences in opinion or belief. My only warning for this book is it ends in a cliff hanger. The story has so many aha moments it is hard to review without giving any away and ruining the reader’s pleasure of discovering them for themselves. This made the story worth reading and so easy to enjoy at any age. The story has wonderful themes of loyalty, tolerance and fighting for good over e [...]

  • Jacqueline Smith

    An outstanding adventure and fantastic read! Schism, the first book in the Illirin series by Laura Maisano, is everything I hoped it would be and more. Crippled with amnesia and struggling to recover from the car accident that claimed the life of his fiancé, Gabe is trying to reconnect to his past and find anything that makes sense. Lea, meanwhile, is striving to discover a pathway to an alternate dimension, to stop the monsters who have tormented her parents all the way into a mental instituti [...]

    I found myself easily relating to the characters in this book. I enjoyed the characters and how unique they were and you could say quirky. Gabe has lost his memory and Lea is just a little different. But the characters are fun to follow through out the story. I also enjoyed the element of magic in this book. If you like YA urban fantasy, you should check this book out. * I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

  • Dan Jr.

    This is a book you can and must read at breakneck speed to keep up with the action. It was easy to get wrapped into the world of Illirin. The concepts are interesting. The plot twists are ever so satisfying. Enjoyable to the end. Wait, there's more to come. That's a good thing.

    What if you weren't who you thought you were?What if you were someone powerful and important, maybe even from another world?What if something horrible happened to your family, and you felt it was your fault?What if you had a long-lost sibling you never knew about?What if you loved someone you couldn't possibly have?What if you had to destroy one of your best friends in order to save the world?What if you got a lot of people killed?Y'know, if you're anything like me, you'd agree that any one of t [...]

  • Kimberly Graesser

    Schism is a YA urban fantasy that will appeal to pre-teens and teens, as well as adults with it's almost nostalgic depiction of college, adorkable romance, fantastical worlds and MCU-style humor. Genre fans, gamers and your average geek will get a kick out of the cleverly hidden references and most anyone will find themselves easily relating to the characters.Mild spoilers follow:The fantastical extra-dimensional reality of the book is an example of world-building at its finest. It quickly becom [...]

  • Will Wortner

    The 1-line Review:Schism hooks you in fast and is exciting from start to finish. Urban fantasy, extra dimension, big battle, mage Merlin descendant…Yes Please!The longer review: Schism begins as a mystery and ends as a modern magic-urban-fantasy. The storyline got deep quick, I was only 30 pages in when I felt like I was half way through the book. Main characters Gabe and Lea feel real and have that fleshed-out, multi-layer-protagonist-with-flaws essence about them (wow that was a mouthful.) T [...]

  • Lisa Dunn

    I received an ARC in exchange for a reviewHISM opens on a typical modern American college campus. Right away, Laura Maisano enshrouds the two main characters with mystery. Gabe has lost his memory. Lea is just weird, in a slightly Luna Lovegood way. They’re both a little quirky, and I love that about them.Not being one to read or write a lot of contemporary literature in the new adult category, and being perhaps a few years past my own early twenties, it took me a few chapters to adjust to bot [...]

  • Jane Lebak

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Schism follows the story of two misfits who begin to discover that our world itself doesn't quite "fit." The Earth we know periodically intersects and interacts with another world, Illirin, driven by magic. Lea needs proof of this other world to save her family and has worked for years to obtain it. She's so close now, but she needs help from Gabe, a moody art student wrapped up in what little he can remember of his past. But Lea's [...]

  • Live Laugh & Love Books

    This was quite an interesting story. It started out kind of slow but it didn’t take long to come together and get my attention completely.Lea and Gabe’s chemistry was perfect and I very much enjoyed how well they came together. It just felt so natural, which I LOVE when reading. They are one of the main reasons that you just have to keep reading this book! Their stories are so emotional and they grip in and make you feel like an emotional rollercoaster or sadness and happiness. It was a wond [...]

  • Amy

    We are not in Kanas anymore, or Tx in this case. No, you just tripped down a rabbit whole, again, and fell into Illirin. It's a fast read and you will be searching for another way in while waiting for the 2nd book. Lea is doing some calculations for her research project when she falls off a roof and into Gabe. Gabe suffers amnesia after a car accident and has done everything the dr and counsellor have wanted with no result. Lea and her research is just the distraction he needs. Gabe turns out to [...]

  • Haddie Harper

    I feel at a slight disadvantage, as the description of the book gives away a bit of major plot points, but the book was amazing from start to finish. I feel that the topics chosen for the book's theme were the perfect choice. It touched base and hit home. I felt that Gabe and Lea were a great mix. Their characters were not complex, but they were developed and well thought out. This book brought dimensional worlds to a new level, in my limited experience. I quite L♥VED the plot and would read i [...]

    Review to come.

  • Cayt Landis

    Schism by Laura Maisano is an intriguing look into a world where our reality exists beside an alternate dimension, both sides kept apart by a thin, invisible veil. The story follows Gabe, a young man who seeks to regain his memories after an accident leaves him ignorant to who he truly is, and Lea, a young woman whose entire purpose in life is to prove the existence of the other dimension and prove that her parents, who claim to have been attacked by creatures from another world, are not crazy.

    You’re walking on campus, late at night, and you look up and see a girl scaling a university building. She pulls out some kind of gadget, fiddles with it like a junior version of Samantha Carter and strange lights flicker in the air around her. What do you do? Run like hell, or stick around?Yes, of course you’ll stick around! So did I, and every following chapter of Schism was worth it. It’s a fun trip into a modern urban fantasy tale that crosses between the Earth that we know, and the in [...]

  • Shy

    Warning: Might contain spoilersPlot:The author successfully created a new world that unite a fantasy and earth (reality) in a way that is believable. Though I would have wanted to learn more of the technicalities regarding the wall that separates the two - called the thinnings. Other than those, I love how the author created the story revolving around this new world (Illirin) without totally taking the setting away from earth. And as a fan of the TV series Merlin, she really had me with the refe [...]

  • Russ Linton

    To start, and I hate it when people start reviews this way, Schism doesn’t sound like a book I would normally read. The blurb gives a solid sense of a star-crossed romance. Romance, as it is often depicted in genre stories, isn’t my thing. Sappy, sticky sweet, or cloyingly carnal – most often it comes off as fake to me.Look, I’m a guy and I like guy things, even if it isn’t particularly popular to do so. Cut to the chase and tell me a story without getting derailed by the love interest [...]

  • Amie's Book Reviews

    Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ ~ I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Gabe has no memory of the accident that claimed the life of his fiancé, Heather. In fact, Gabe's mind is like one of his unused canvasses - completely blank. Lea spends most of her time working alone on her E.D. Project. She would rather be alone than have to listen to the other University students snickering behind her back. Gabe and Lea meet and the two misfits bond [...]

  • Haley Keller

    I'm not really sure how to explain Schism. I feel like it is both like and yet no like the books that I usually read. That's how I felt it would be going into it too, and I think that's part of what fueled me to read it. It's a fantasy book, which I love, but there's just something about it that makes it feel closer to sci-fi than most fantasy. I think it was Lea's attemps at calculating where the thinnings would appear and the fact that Illirin felt so much like an alien world and not just a fa [...]

  • DL Hammons

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.For me, one of the traits of a good book is when it’s able to overcome one or more inherent prejudices of the reader. Urban Fantasy is not a genre I'm particularly fond of, nor are books that are obviously part of a larger series, but neither of these elements prevented me from enjoying what turned out to be a very enjoyable reading experience.This will be a spoiler-free review, as I wouldn’t want to spoil things for what I’m [...]

    Unfortunately, I have no photographic evidence I've met a being from another dimension.No matter. The salmon-skinned, winged Illirin Seer, Aime Nee, was out and about in Dallas, Texas, last month promoting her alter ego Laura Maisano's YA novel, Schism.Schism proves a fun read about a mismatched pair of college students, Gabe Jones and Lea Huckley, who discover they are chasing down the same path (or should I say, portal?) toward an alternate dimension --- the realm of the Illirin, a world conne [...]

  • Kelley Harvey

    Laura Maisano brings us a unique storyline with out-of-this-world characters. A vivid and colorful world exists just on the other side of the schism and Lea Huckley is determined to prove it’s there. She must if she’s going to free her parents from the loony bin. When she meets mysterious Gabe Jones, she has no idea he’s the proof she needs. She has to decide whether to use that information or not. After a car accident took his past from him, Gabe has suffered amnesia and the loss of every [...]

  • Kolleen Fraser

    I love a good YA Fantasy and SCHISM was definitely that. It was a fun urban fantasy written in a way that young and older readers alike will enjoy the story with a YA/NA feel. We meet Lea, a quirky college student who is also trying to hunt down beings from another dimension, a place called Illirin, beings who had attacked her parents now considered crazy for what they've seen. Enter Gabe The object of Lea's crush. He suffers from amnesia since being in a car accident that killed his fiancée. T [...]

  • Crystal Collier

    This book was not what I expected from the description, but it was definitely epic. People who love the Smoke and Bones series or Avatar will fall into this story world without issue. I loved Lea, a spunky yet nerdy girl who is motivated by the tragedy that ruined her family life. Poor Gabe will go through the ringer, but he's worthy of cheering on. I seriously thought about giving the author a piece of my mind for how she treated him, but I suppose what doesn't kill us Overall, I enjoyed the st [...]

  • Kevin Kelly

    *3.5 stars*I was sent this for free in exchange for an honest review. Now, I'm doing a video review for this book so I will discuss it in more detail there but, I'm just gonna say that this book had so many twists and turns (some were predictable but not all). And I really enjoyed it. The cliff hangar at the end though!!

  • Syvannah Tewes

    Schism was absolutely amazing. I loved the characters, I loved the plot, I loved everything about the book. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy the YA genre.

  • Sandra Cox

    Ms. Maisano does a great job of balancing two worlds using a believable vehicle for crossing over. Strong characters and a great plot. I recommend it.

    Schism: Illirin Book OneBy Laura Maisano Review by Andrea ChurchillandreachurchillbooksWarning: Contains spoilers. I enjoyed reading SCHISM, the first in the Illirin series by Laura Maisano. The fantasy world of Illirin, another dimension that parallels Earth, is very colorful and unique. I think the series would do well as a movie; the different ‘traits’, or the people of Illirin separated by different attributes, reminded me of the film Avatar because of their exotic descriptions: multico [...]
