Ballistic begins right where Killshot left off. Michaels doesn't give a lot of review, so if it's been awhile since you finished Killshot, it might be a good idea to reread it or at least skim over the basics. Seems like with the first book covering the big event that there wouldn't be too many surprises left for the group this time. Wrong! (Scritters!) Just when you think that she's given the main group enough obstacles and tested their strength and resolve to the breaking point, they're pushed even further. Liv is still as tough and magnificent as ever, taking the lead and handling the cursed life she now lives with incredible determination and resolve. We're given part of the story from Beans perspective, and Liv's little brother is just as gutsy, endearing, and as much of a natural leader as she is.
I loved this entire book, from the amazing artwork on the front cover to the final scene that can easily cause an ugly cry. Michaels has created a striking second novel that is an absolute must read! I can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
No time was lost between Killshot and Ballistic. The journey carried on for these unfortunate Icarus survivors.
Liv along with her friends carried on their quest to find their lost family as well as the answers to the mystery of the virus woken up by Icarus. For Liv however, it’s all because of Beans.
We finally meet the famous Beans and boy, he’s such a great young man. I say: man because the tragedy brought by the solar flare to his young life forced him to grow up. Like his sister, Lucas is a natural born leader and in his own way, he fought hard to protect the ones he loved. And for one so young, he is so wise.
Liv on the other hand is growing more powerful...and deadly. Self-doubt started creeping into her mind if she was still capable of protecting her friends or if they needed protection from her.
Like the first book, this one is action-packed and full of surprises.
One thing I would have like to have seen developed was the author’s ability to control the crowd better. More and more people were introduced, great characters who added their own special flair to the story. However, there were a few parts in the book were people got lost when different characters took over the “scene”. I know creating poignant moment in the story is essential but during those times, a few of the major characters were just left hanging with no lines, so to speak.
Still, I was glued to my eBook reader, desperate to find out what would become of Liv and her friends. We get reunited with a character from book 1 and a pleasant surprise made my heart skip a beat. And I wasn’t talking about Liv and Zander who were still going strong.
The finale was nothing short of explosive with a satisfying conclusion to book 2’s mission.
I would highly recommend this series to everyone even if the sky is falling.
The story picks up where book one leave us. Our band of friends (Jake, Falisha, Christa, Ty, Eli and Riley) are being led by Olivia and Zander on a quest to find Lucas, Olivia’s brother. The group meets with many trials and tribulations since the virus and solar flares have wiped out most of humanity. There is constant fear of the military finding them, the infected zombies and a new threat the rat like creatures. Olivia, Jake and Zander have all been infected with the virus but found the antidote (book 1) to halt the progression on the virus. The special skills that they have acquired will help them to survive.
The book is action packed and leaves the reader to wonder what this group of people have done to have endured so much. They are constantly looking over their shoulders and meeting obstacles at every turn. They are discovering themselves as they go but fighting internal demons. Ty gets shot by a madman and needs a blood transfusion to survive. Liv decides to provide that blood only to find out her blood has healing properties and Ty heals overnight from his injuries. Twists, turns and secrets. What more does a story need.
Throughout this book we get to glimpse what Lucas has been going through and what adventures he has been having. The dual story lines keeps the book moving along and I found myself trying to get through each of the pages to get to the ending.
Each character is highly developed and you find yourself wanting to know all of their secrets. Trying to understand what is going on with the military, Eli and Lucas keeps the reader engage and on the edge of their seat. I highly recommend this book.
