Solid was one of the first review copies I received as a blogger and I’m very happy to say I was correct in saying that the series would improve with each book. How I loved seeing these characters again! While I enjoyed the storyline of Solid, I felt that we didn’t connect enough with the characters. Settlingremedies that, allowing readers to become more involved with their personal stories and see inside of their minds. Exciting as ever, the mystery of genetically-altered teens continues!
This year, the students at a secret Army camp are beginning to go into working fields relating to their ability. Clio discovers that turning invisible may not be her only power, just as she realises her boyfriend, Jack, may not be ability-less after all. This occurs when a killer on campus makes themselves known and, as more people are killed by this unseen attacker, Clio must piece everything together before her own time is up. Means? Motive? Opportunity? Oh how you’ll love the mystery. Prepare for some fast-paced, exciting action! You won’t guess the outcome. *wink*
It was so easy to slip back into the comfortable circle of friends. With Garrett’s charming personality and Miranda’s controlling streak, you’ll feel right at home with these six loveable characters. Jack and Clio continue to be cutely in love but outside forces now threaten to tear them apart. Jack spends most of his time reviewing security footage relating to the murders, while Clio begins working with Lieutenant Rutherford, a twenty-one year old she can’t help but feel a connection to. Add witty bantering to sizzling tension and we have ourselves a love triangle! While I love Jack…there’s just something about Ford that makes me swoon. Call me a traitor, but the heart wants what the heart wants! Join Clio as she journeys through the confusing woes of romance, forced to firstly discover herself in the process.
My reading of this was long overdue. I never had the time to pick this up when it was first released but better late than never! I’m looking forward to the next installment of the series, ready to delve into the complicated relationships and mysterious abilities all over again. A fantastic sequel by Workinger!
