Genre: Science Fiction
***THIS BOOK WAS PROVIDED TO NERD GIRL IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Carter Gabel had to overcome a lot in the last year, and time travel as a side effect of his “genetic disease” was only the beginning. He’s lost his mother, reunited with his estranged father, crippled a city and destroyed his school. If he thought he could fade into the sunset, Carter has another thing coming.
A terrorist group known as Pirates has infiltrated his hometown to overthrow the Program designed to monitor those with potentially harmful abilities. Carter is a teenager, but he’s forced back into the mix as his grandson, David, has been put into a coma. He will have to try and stay out of sight as much as possible and work with new Eventuals along the way in order to stop the Pirates from turning Lincoln Square into a ghost town.
There’s a lot of characters in this book, so many that you don’t always keep them straight, and I think that’s my only flaw with this book. I tend to bond with main characters, but when there’s too many things get a bit confusing for me to follow along with. But the character, though many, are all really developed. Lee took time to make his characters more 3D then you experience in most other novels. I appreciate this because as a reader, it makes it easier for me to connect and get involved in the story.
I really felt Lee came into his stride as an author with this second book. Writing was strong, pace was good, and the plot was complex and didn’t unravel quickly at all. We’ve still got some questions that will hopefully be answered in the next book, but all in all, outstanding second book and I am excited for the third!
