This series must be read in order. The first book is Convergence. This is the second book. I can't wait to read the next one!
Finding out she is in Russia is not the biggest shock Solstice gets when she escapes the OSA. That there is a while organization dedicated to keeping magic and Numina under wraps is one of the bigger ones though. Her boss, Fenton, is one of the key members of this group, and they want her to join as well. Is her job at the tabloid even real? It has to be right? She has been writing real articles for a real paper all these years. Will they be able to get her safely out of Russia and back home even though she never *officially* arrived in the country? How dangerous is this *job* they want her help on? Will the FSB detain her like the American MIB did? Or will they just accept her help and let her go on her merry way? What is Cristiano's story? Is he as trustworthy as he seems? Will she forever be doomed to comparing all men to that day Diego? Or will she finally get over his betrayal and move on with her life? Will she ever find out how she ended up in this world instead of the Echo? The only certainty in her life is Mr. Moody and her desire to get back home to her family and friends. Will she ever adjust to her new reality and her real self? What more could possibly go wrong?
With Solstice starting to find her feet, This book is even better than the last! It feels almost like you are discovering the truth about the world right along with her. Her whole world has been shattered and turned upside down, but instead of bemoaning her fate and the lies told to keep her safe, she embraces her new reality with an almost childlike sense of wonder and abandon. This series is both uplifting and entertaining and I can't wait for more!
I don't like to comment too much on the story, no spoilers and all. I will say that Solstice is horning in on my imaginary love affair with Kristin, from the Division Zero series. Hey, I have a thing for petite (can I say Pixieish), blond heroines. Matt will have to come up with a new Division Zero book soon, so I can get my much needed Kristen fix.
This book, like all the ones written by both Rain and Cox, is well written and superbly edited and proofed. Containment has a strong story idea, with fresh characters, and realistic dialogue. With Matt's vivid imagination, you can rarely get ahead of him. Like all other books by this duo, either individually or together, there are always so many twists in these stories that that Chubby Checker would shout. You may not know where they are heading, though you know they will always take you to an exciting conclusion. This story, like Convergence, shows that Matt has become one of the best authors around, in a league with Dean Koontz, A.J. Scudierie, and Austin Dragon, at writing a stand-alone story that is also part of an extended series.
While J.R. Rain may be the more famous of the two authors, I feel Matt more than holds his own as a fantastic author. Matthew is an up and coming, prolific, multi-genre, superstar author that is hitting the Scy Fy charts by storm. He has four adult science fiction/supernatural series based on his 25th-century universe that shows a post-apocalyptic future that allows you to suspend disbelief while reading them. He has penned numerous other series and stand-alone stories for the middle grade and young adult genres, as well as several other dystopian future and hard science fiction novels. Additionally, he and J.R. are working on several fantasy series together. I can only hope to keep up with this prolific duo.
What a great world inhabited by spunky, snarky and delicious characters who endear themselves to the reader. It’s a great journey of adventure and discovery as Solstice comes more and more into the power that was always hers. Throw in the enigmatic and hunky Cristiano, her non-magical partner and friend with benefits, and you have a story you can’t put down. A great addition to Messrs. Rain and Cox’s growing body of work. Not to be missed.
I voluntarily reviewed this work after having received an advanced copy.

While I found the story enjoyable, I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first one. Mr.Read more
