Worst. Road Trip. Ever.
Escaping with Reid Wentworth should have been fun, but how can I enjoy it when I just (accidentally) killed someone, my mom and brother are in danger, and the Consortium is trying to enslave humanity? (Yeah, they aren’t fooling around.) So feeling something for Reid Wentworth was not part of the plan. Trying to help unite the Resistance against the Consortium means I can’t be distracted by hot boys.
The Resistance secret hideout isn’t exactly the rebel base of my dreams. A traitor there wants me dead, but we have no idea who it is. And with both the Resistance and the Consortium trying to control me, the only one I can trust is Reid. If we’re going to have any chance of protecting my family, controlling my unstable powers, and surviving the clash between the Oculi factions, I’m going to have to catch this traitor. By using myself as bait.
Genre: Another-World, Mystery, Romance, Supernatural, Suspense, Teen--
Two weeks after the devastating events of book one, Josie and Reid have been on the move, trying to stay ahead of the mole in their organization that will take out everything they are trying to save. When Josie is given the option to stay with Reid and go to a safe house, or follow her family to the Resistance base where a mole is hiding, Josie has no choice. She decided to protect her family and bring the Consortium down, even if it costs her her life. This will be war and Josie will not back down.
This book is the perfect blend of imagination, mystery and suspense. Keep in mid that this is not a standalone story, but instead a second book in a complicated, much bigger world. Tonya is able to create this amazing, fantastical world full of people who pretty much have super powers and for the most part anything is possible (at least where Josie is concerned). The magic used by the Anomaly's reminded me kind of the movie the Matrix, where the mind can alter every scenario, making everything more fluid and reality is questionable. This can be so much fun, but it can also be even more dangerous for our main characters. I stumbled upon this series when it first came out around January 2015 and I could not stop thinking about what I had read and how I NEEDED more (it went past a want and to a very serious need). I did not want the story to end since I wanted to continue the action, danger, magic and most importantly, the romance.
Josie is such an awesome character, able to keep going and think of others when her own safety is on the line. Not to mention the fact that she just barely learned about her powers and the strange new world she was pushed into, yet she is rolling with the punches like a pro. She was determined, competent and related everything to something nerd-based, which makes her one of my favorite main characters (and look, the nerd saves the day and gets the love interest!).
Reid was so cute and strong, willing to help Josie in any way, yet knowing she was capable on her own without his interference. He was the charmer too, but my absolute favorite line in the book was near the end of the story "...but I already had my eye on a treat. I like Nerds." See, swoon worthy, while being funny and true, which I think sums up Reid perfectly. Keep in mind that the romance was not the focus of the story, but I still loved the secret moments that Josie and Reid shared, how they complimented each other so well and I just wanted to wrap them in a smooshy hug, that's how much I liked them together.
I enjoyed how the story kept me on my toes guessing, be it about what Josie can do next magically, or even suspect wise since nobody was off the table for potential guilt. I can't wait to see what else Tonya wants to write about, be it more in this series (which I am not sure will be more since this appeared to wrap up nicely but who knows) or something completely different. I was not let down by this story and enjoyed it just as much as I did the first book. This is the perfect series for fans of supernatural adventures, dangerous mysteries and a whole lot of fun nerdy references (which I forgot how much I loved them).
I received this book in return for my honest review, but I had also pre-ordered a copy to go with my book 1, which should tell you my appreciation for the series.
Book Blurb:Anomaly (Schrodinger's Consortium #1)
Reality is only an illusion.
Except for those who can control it…
Worst. Birthday. Ever.
My first boyfriend dumped me—happy birthday, Josie!—my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils. Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening…
Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it.
When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother. Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…
