Anyone who follows me on Bookstagram knows how happy it makes me to support authors and small businesses. Tristen Willis happens to be both — a debut author, as well as the owner of Burning Pages Candles (a small bookish candle company). I was so thrilled when I received a message from her regarding reading and reviewing an e-ARC of her novel, The Genesi Code. So, I loved the synopsis of The Genesi Code! The cover is also really pretty. This is the first book in a duology, although, I think Willis could have easily lengthened this into a trilogy. I did like it, but I had issues with it, too.
