Shelves: romance , teens-young-adults , what-the-what , just-no Oh my god! I dreaded reading this book. I cringed when I saw this book. The first book in the series was pretty interesting. But this is a hot mess. It starts out good, with Tavia and Logan taken and have to escape, but every time they try, they fail. Tavia is so in love with Logan. Then she Oh my god! Then she loves him. She had this strong connection that she had to do whatever it took to get to him.
After a few hours or maybe a day of a crash course, they send her to work with DNA and find a cure. Does that make sense to anyone? Tavia has a feeling Daniel is shady and hiding something. Others say and feel the same thing.
Not when they have the powers they do. Tavia is a freaking Mary Sue with her strong unlimited powers yet she still has to lean on someone else to save her all the time and can do whatever she wants. But instead of doing something, she waits. She never communicates or thinks about things either. The "twists" and what not are obvious.
I was rolling my eyes about them. Oh, you need to find out why the bad guys are after you? Benson is conveniently here for you. Need to wonder if Daniel is really good? Two random people seem to trust you and tell you a big secret about Daniel!
Decide to create a kitchen and find a secret! Need a braid to get memories back? Convenient plot point. Need to feel sorry for evil Benson? Plot point! Need Benson and new friends to feel connected? Convenient plot point!
Loved the Wings series. This has just annoyed me to no end. I had to wait for it to come in at the library for me, and I found myself checking for it. Then I got the perfect chance to read it, I had to take my car in to be serviced last week and with a 2 and a half hour wait ahead of me, I settled into the waiting room and started to read.
I managed to get about three quarters of the way through the book in that time. And I found myself forgetting about the uncomfortable chairs and the long wait as I got absorbed into the book. Love triangles tend to annoy me in most books but this was different somehow and I found myself trying to choose sides. It was good to find out more about the history behind the Earthbounds and the Reduciata, it made a lot of things much clearer and it was a very interesting concept.
To be honest I think book 2 was better than the first, I found myself reading faster, wanting to know what would happen, trying to figure out who was a traitor, etc. There are still a few bits that annoyed me - Tavia is quite self involved and tends to overthink a lot, which ends up with a lot of her running off and crying. I understand things are hard and this is a bad situation, but come on. I kept hoping she would toughen up or at least turn to those around her for help but she just pushed them away too.
She sees a mysterious blonde boy on the street, and immediately feels a connection to him. She then sees him at 2 am on her lawn, and freaks out. Tells her therapist and best friend. Worries about her safety. All great points, right? Cut to the next morning, where our protagonist, Tavia, has decided that the mystery-man is nice.
