Gr 9 Up-Teens who enjoyed Cold Kiss (HarperCollins, 2011), a surprisingly contemplative, sad reflection on first love and sudden death, will likely find this sequel to be just as engaging. From the dizzying excitement of flying to the marvel of creating a beautiful snowfall, Wren Darby is finally beginning to enjoy her growing supernatural abilities. Her power is the one thing that she can't share with her best friends. Her boyfriend, Gabriel, who can read minds, is uncomfortable with her talents, driving her toward the dangerous, magical duo Bay and Fiona. Wren also has to deal with her younger sister, who is just coming to terms with her own secret powers. As Wren engages with Bay and Fiona in spite of Gabriel's warnings, she soon realizes that she may be getting in over her head and just might lose Gabriel in the process. However, with the help of her friends and family, she learns that magic isn't the only thing that makes her special. Garvey's lively writing exhibits pleasing emotion and dazzling imagery. However, teens who have not read the first book might be a little lost in this one.-Krista Welz, The North Bergen Public Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.
