The second book picks up where the last one left off. Carter and his girlfriend, Mo, are in hiding, staying under the radar, letting people believe they are dead. Let me just say, I adore the relationship between Carter and Mo. It makes my little nerd heart squee in excitement because their love for one another is so rare, perfect, and pure. It's not beyond believable and were basically created to be soul mates. Read the books and you will understand.
Of course, like any good book, the calmness that comes with the world thinking you are dead, doesn't last long. Soon, Carter has been tracked down by a brother and sister, to tell him that his grandson is in trouble. Yes, Carters grandson. Again, you have to read these books! There is a crazy thing going on within these pages and there isn't much more I can tell you without giving it all away.
Looking At a Few Things
The writing is on point. You can tell that the novel has been well edited and polished to near perfection. I only say near perfection because nothing is ever perfect, though I couldn't tell you anything that was wrong with the story.
The dialogue, which some authors have issues with, stayed on track. The story features mostly teenagers and the dialogue stayed within what you would think a teenager would sound like.
I have this issue with endings. They have to be perfect. I have read to many books where the ending takes place in the middle of the story. This one wasn't like that. The story is left with questions and things left open, but it ends in a way that you are comfortable with, but it keeps you on edge waiting for the next book.
The cover is amazing! If I had seen this book on the shelf at my local book store I would have picked it up in a heart beat. I am one of the people that will judge a book by it's cover and I have no shame in that!
Once more can I say how much I love the relationship between Carter and Mo? I just love them so much and I may get a little sick to my stomach every time something comes up that could jeopardize their happily ever after.
This book was just as amazing as the first one. It's fast paced so you don't get bored. Not once did I stop and think "Get on with the story already." I would read this book again and probably will when the third installment comes out.
A quick warning though, towards the end you will cry. I swear to you! I don't cry often when it comes to reading, but I got teary eyed so I thank the author for sharing emotions so strong that I feel it my cold heart.
If you haven't read the first book, you need to read it. If you have read it and haven't read this one, you need to buy it. Seriously, what are you waiting on?

Characters have figured out their powers in this one...much more control, much more mature. Love all the new characters too.
The book really immerses you into the world of Carter Gabel. You feel like you are there with him. I only wish the book was longer...I wasn't ready to be done yet!!!
