Blog Tour & Review: Folami & Abeni Morris' "The Exemeus

Author: Folam & Abeni Morris
Title: The Exemeus
Her short life was devoted to love and to hate. Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world. Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, she's been given another chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.

In a world where fear is the only currency, Dephon has committed the ultimate crime: inspiring hope.

His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple. Heir to a legendary power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back. His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the world has ever known. The only problem is, she's been dead for 13 years.

My Review:
Welcome to the futuristc world known as Trepton where the government rules with fear and an iron fist. We are introduced to  Dephon who soon discovers he's much more than an average boy when he's a given book called "The Exemeus". He quickly realizes several things: the book once belonged to his mother & its up to him to bring the repressed people light, hope and happiness. Unfortunately, with something this powerful danger is sure to find you, even worse the only person that could help him is no longer living.....
Hayalee Smith is a passionate person, she deeply loves her lost love and deeply hates the vicious man that now controls the world. The  evil government that's closing in on Dephon is the very same that ended her life, as she's mad *evil giggle*. She swears to help Dephon with his dangerous mission, but can the survive a government that will stop at nothing to see them dead???
My thoughts:
Let me start by saying sci fy and futuristic books are not usually my "thing" BUT I couldn't help but enjoy this book! It has anything a reader may want, drama suspense, hope lost love and evil forces!! I loved watching Dephon grow and become more and more determined to defy the government and save the suffering people. Hayalee is a bada$$!!! You really can't help but love her! She's amazingly brave and an awesome fighter! This is a must read!!
About the Authors:
Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.
 Folami Morris:
 Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus. She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad. 
Abeni Morris:
 As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.
