Synopsis from Goodreads: After rejecting the cult-like influence of her father's family, Julia moves into a fancy hotel in downtown Austin. But she finds herself alone except for her boyfriend, John--and her fears. Once again she's suppressing her abilities, afraid her family will come for John when they find out he's been developing abilities of his own in her presence. The FBI is also keeping a close eye on Julia hoping she can lead them to her father, Novak, as he's wanted for questioning in his former assistant's death. With tensions high, Julia and John agree to go separate ways for the summer, paving the way for Julia to reunite with Angus, fellow outcast. Together they set out on a road trip to California to find Julia's mom and a way into Novak's secret underground world. Along the way Julia will learn the Puri perhaps aren't the only humans evolving into something different. . . and that maybe she's the leader her people have needed all along.
My Review: I wanted to like this book as much as the first but it just wasn’t a good fit for me. I’m still giving it three stars because I like the writing style, characters and the premise for the series. For me though the book was too slow and I found myself putting it down quite a bit. I also didn’t like the back and forth narrative. It did add a little depth but I tend to lose focus with books written in that style unless they are very well done. I may still give the third book a chance because the premise is really good and I hope that things will pick up.
