Roots picks up almost from where Seeds finished. Quinn finds herself in a quagmire of half truths and outright lies, with no one to talk to about William's world since Will is apparently avoiding her. William is worried and shattering without word of his brother. Thomas is missing and only Quinn knows of his plans but doesn't know he disappeared. A forced confrontation finds Quinn and William on a rescue mission, Quinn's life unraveling and William more confused than ever. Their journey leads to more and more questions and answers that are often not answers and some times uncomfortable as well as confusing.
The romance develops pretty quickly between Quinn and Zander. I wouldn't call it instalove at all since they've known each other their whole lives. But Zander bothered me. He was a little possessive, a bit too intense, really early on. He doesn't get angry with Quinn, but I get the feeling that he would in the future. Or at least with a guy who he might feel threatened by.
Meanwhile, William has started ignoring Quinn completely. The anger boils over and Quinn unleashes it on him, demanding to know what his problem is. Turns out, William is severely distracted because his brother (and Quinn's dear friend), Thomas, has been missing for quite some time. Before Quinn left Eirentheos Thomas told her where he was going but she had no idea his trip would be so dangerous. Together, Quinn and William return to Eirentheos in search of Thomas.
The plot in ROOTS OF INSIGHT is a fair amount meatier than in the first book. Which is actually perfect as the first book eases you into the story without being overwhelming. There's some serious stuff coming in the future books.
Romance was pretty much non-existent in the first book, but there is some in ROI - not enough to weaken the plot, though. (Yes!) It does appear that there might be a love triangle forming in the near future... Or maybe not. I vote Quinn kicks Zander to the curb. Just saying. :)
Quinn is just as awesome in book two if not even more so. She takes charge at times, but is generally her loving, thoughtful, insightful self. Quinn has a keen eye for recognizing avoidance and secrecy, and she doesn't let people get away with it for long. Love, love, love Quinn. She's my new favorite heroine!
I really enjoyed getting to know William better. He is so incredible. And he complements Quinn perfectly. *ahem* Team William!!! They have similar personalities, but also have their differences - one makes up for the other one's weaknesses, and vice versa. Match made in Heaven people.
What more can I say? I have zero complaints. You should absolutely give these books a read. More than once. :) I'm off to dive into book three now; there's no way I'm waiting to find out what happens next.
**I purchased this book, however, I also received a copy from the tour host in exchange for an honest review. No incentive was offered or accepted for a favorable review or rating.
Anyway, I reeaally love the way the characters develop and get to know each other better in this one. I love Quinn and William's blossoming friendship. And we really get to know the Rose family even more throughout this book. I'm starting to feel like these people are some of my best friends. The plot is amazing and things have been happening in pretty much the way I had suspected and hoped they would. Even though there is still a lot of mystery in this book surrounding Quinn and what's really at stake for her in Eirentheos and Philotheum, there are definitely some hints and little details about the story that point to something potentially a lot bigger than what it appears to be.
This has been a wonderfully enjoyable series, and I can't say how relieved I am that the entire series is already out so I don't have to wait very long to keep reading.
