Warning.... You will be up so late reading this book. I could not put it down. I found myself hiding from the family to leave me alone already, and let me read!! It's even better than the first book, which I really, really liked. Cassie has grown and matured a lot in this one, and Will has much more to say, in fact, he takes over the reins on this one for the majority of the book. Which I LOVE By the way! I just love Will, he is a nice strong, and interesting character. We also get to find out about some more children of the psi. Some that have been around since the beginning of the first book, and a few new few new ones. I love how Will and Cassie seem to strengthen each other's abilities, and that their abilities are growing too.
This book starts right were Dreaming Dangerously: Children of the Psi Book One leaves off, at dream #12 that Cassie has, and the man that is dream stalking her.
I love that Ashley Wilder has a bigger role to play. Will finds out why she wears gloves all the time for instance. She has some secrets of her own.
Here is a quote from a mystery man, it's from his point of view, and calls himself Phoenix:

At first, he didn't recognize them. He's only seen Will from a distance, when he was with his grandfather in the shed the other night. He imagined the couple to be more ordinary, to avoid bringing attention to themselves. Instead, the two looked like they'd just walked out of Teen Beat magazine. She was all blonde hair and long legs, wearing some lacy blouse and skirt combo with boots, and he's jeans and an Abercrombie t-shirt. A short bleached-blonde man arrived with them as well as Will's grandfather, who carried himself, shoulders back, eyes darting around the room, always aware, always on guard, instinctively knowing where to find the exits.
Love this part, when they are getting some explanations for why they have these abilities.

"Your father programmed a protein that's in our DNA?" Yamil asks. "Get outta here! How could he do that?"
"Nanotechnology," I tell her (Will)
"Nano Whato?" Yamil asks. "Speak English!"
"It's technology that's super small. Atomic sized," I explain.
Love the Nano Whato, lol, cracked me up. (Yamil is another psi child they find out about)

"They're doing that thing again," Yamil says to Ashley.
"Yeah, where they stare at each other and mind-talk, so we can't hear it."
Love these guys; we get some cute funny parts like that from time to time, and some more danger and thrills in this book.
I love how this cover has a transparent photo of I am guessing Will, and the first book a transparent photo of Cassie. At first I did not see that in these covers, but finally noticed it.
So we have:
A tattoo guy mind stalking Cassie and controlling her body remotely.
He wants them to do something for him, which involves a kidnapping, which last time I check is illegal, and Cassie is having vision/dreams that are putting her inside a young girl.
Another mind-stalker which she calls a Dark presence.
Will does not trust this tattoo guy.
Will finds out he has more family that he never knew he had, and wishes they were not his family.
Will does something that will have you freaking out at the end. Big cliffhanger!
I can't wait until the next book is out. I will be getting it right away.
A must read, anyone who likes a little paranormal with sci-fi will love this book.
Will Rossi made two promises to his girlfriend, Cassie, to keep her secret and to keep her safe. But after discovering other psychic teens, he is determined to learn their origin, and when a dark presence threatens Cassie, he must decide to give up his quest or risk losing her.
