Two weeks after the devastating events of book one, Josie and Reid have been on the move, trying to stay ahead of the mole in their organization that will take out everything they are trying to save. When Josie is given the option to stay with Reid and go to a safe house, or follow her family to the Resistance base where a mole is hiding, Josie has no choice. She decided to protect her family and bring the Consortium down, even if it costs her her life. This will be war and Josie will not back down.
This book is the perfect blend of imagination, mystery and suspense. Keep in mid that this is not a standalone story, but instead a second book in a complicated, much bigger world. Tonya is able to create this amazing, fantastical world full of people who pretty much have super powers and for the most part anything is possible (at least where Josie is concerned). The magic used by the Anomaly's reminded me kind of the movie the Matrix, where the mind can alter every scenario, making everything more fluid and reality is questionable. This can be so much fun, but it can also be even more dangerous for our main characters. I stumbled upon this series when it first came out around January 2015 and I could not stop thinking about what I had read and how I NEEDED more (it went past a want and to a very serious need). I did not want the story to end since I wanted to continue the action, danger, magic and most importantly, the romance.
Josie is such an awesome character, able to keep going and think of others when her own safety is on the line. Not to mention the fact that she just barely learned about her powers and the strange new world she was pushed into, yet she is rolling with the punches like a pro. She was determined, competent and related everything to something nerd-based, which makes her one of my favorite main characters (and look, the nerd saves the day and gets the love interest!).
Reid was so cute and strong, willing to help Josie in any way, yet knowing she was capable on her own without his interference. He was the charmer too, but my absolute favorite line in the book was near the end of the story "...but I already had my eye on a treat. I like Nerds." See, swoon worthy, while being funny and true, which I think sums up Reid perfectly. Keep in mind that the romance was not the focus of the story, but I still loved the secret moments that Josie and Reid shared, how they complimented each other so well and I just wanted to wrap them in a smooshy hug, that's how much I liked them together.
I enjoyed how the story kept me on my toes guessing, be it about what Josie can do next magically, or even suspect wise since nobody was off the table for potential guilt. I can't wait to see what else Tonya wants to write about, be it more in this series (which I am not sure will be more since this appeared to wrap up nicely but who knows) or something completely different. I was not let down by this story and enjoyed it just as much as I did the first book. This is the perfect series for fans of supernatural adventures, dangerous mysteries and a whole lot of fun nerdy references (which I forgot how much I loved them).
I received this book in return for my honest review, but I also pre-ordered a copy to go with my book 1, which should tell you my appreciation for the series.
Enigma was an entertaining conclusion to the Schrodinger's Consortium duology. It was fast paced, had an adorable romance, fun superpowers, and I couldn't help but like some of the new characters. I'm so glad I gave this duology a try, and I will definitely be picking up Tonya Kuper's future releases! Here are some of my thoughts on Enigma -
✮ A strong yet realistic heroine -
It's been three days since Anomaly ended, and my heart was saddened to see how much Josie was suffering. She was struggling emotionally from the fight she was in, along with the fact that she took someone's life. Someone who she thought she trusted, and was even a friend. But I had faith that Josie would pull herself together. And till then, I loved watching how she trained. She was was beyond fierce and brave. Yet her fears were always there too. See, that's one of the many reasons I liked her. She was someone who was not only realistic, but easy to like!
✮ Book boyfriend material -
Probably my favorite thing about this whole book was Reid. I know. I'm hopeless. I loved that his top priority was keeping Josie safe. I loved that he was her biggest champion. And I absolutely loved when he was authoritative to others. He was amazing when he took charge! You'll see what I mean when they arrive in the Hub. Reid was still sexy as ever, such a good guy, and someone I could easily obsess about.
✮ Unique abilities and powers -
I know I said this in my first review, but I have to mention it again. The powers and abilities in this book, I've never read about them before. It was fascinating to learn about, and I loved that they were different. It made reading about their training fun. And I loved seeing how Josie's powers manifested!
✮ My only two wishes -
I wish that some moments between Josie and Reid were expanded, because I'm greedy like that. Especially in the beginning when they were traveling around and staying in motel rooms. And had to share a bed. I wanted those good night moments. Whether they were sweet, awkward or even if it showed Josie waking up from her nightmares in the middle of the night. I couldn't have had enough of Josie and Reid time. And I also wish there was more expansion on the Consortium. I wanted to know why they were the way they were. How they could justify wanting to murder a group of people.
So while I guessed how a few things would turn out, there were some twists and turns that were wonderful and surprising. I love when that happens! But but but, there was mention of a thing in the future *yes I'm being vague here haha*. So while it wrapped up nicely, it also left room for a future book or even a spin-off? Maybe it's wishful thinking on my part, but I'd love to read more about these characters. I wasn't ready to say goodbye to them just yet, so fingers crossed!

Ok, so it is a Duology, not a Trilogy.
Ending is ok, but as I feared, way too much romance.Read more
