Unnatural Law (Darwin's Children #2)
Well, the cover is absolutely gorgeous. I love that Allison is portrayed instead of Jaycie ... I even think I like this cover a LOT better than the cover for Darwin's Children (sorry Natasha!).
I don't know how many of you watch America's Next Top Model, but the portrayal of Allison on the cover reminds me of the pale blonde chic on ANTM that is fascinated with blood and ... oh my God ... now that I think about it, her name is Allison, too!!!! Coincidence? I think so...
There's quite a bi...more
The writing is aimed at teenagers and I had a little trouble with...more
I love Jaycie, and watching her learn how to control her powers is an intriguing one that you really don't know what is going to happen, whether somebody will actually end up getting hurt or not because she has not control. I also love the ensemble of characters, we get to know more about each person fr...more
Character development was not as strong as I would like to see in a sequel. I feel many of them were stagnant, but if readers enjoyed the first book it will not matter to most of them in the second, as long as Larry provides true development in the third.
The pacing of this novel was spot on. The author thrusts readers right int...more
So besides the characters I talked about in my last review there are a few new faces, first of all you have the Dey-Vah Gaurd who protect Jaycie's family each individual person has their own guard. If I'm honest I didn't like them very much they were too clingy but I think that was the whole point of them in the first place, there is also Alonzo but I won't say much about him because it will ki...more
It was a fun read overall, I especially enjoyed that I didn’t have to read the first book to understand all the dynamics of this world. The author did a great job on integrating the events that happened in the first book while continuing the story at the same time. And the concept of this book itself was intriguing and filled with fun and I enjoyed it very much. With this story came laughter, suspense, mystery and the ever need for more time.
The plot had all of the elements...more
No sophmore slump here.
Okay, second time around. There were a few small problems I had with the story, *coughs* Matt, but it was still a good story.
characterizations, decent, but maybe it's me, but the characters were a little too perfect. "You almost killed me!" "I'm sorry!" "That's okay. I love you!" "Oh, I love you!!" *smooches* The characters could've been more dimensional. There was an effort made, but could be better.
This book picks right up from book one.. So I would suggest making sure to read first book. The teenagers keep on the path and our superheroes face twists and turns.
We have characters that we learn a lot more about this time around. Jaycie is trying to keep her powers under control, Haylee is learning about ability, Allison is just well she is figuring out everything , and Matt seems to hold the answers to all the problems. We meet new people along the way..Natas...more
Once again I was quickly drawn in to the character's lives. They are written in such a way that they seem very real. While I was reading Unnatural Law it felt more like I was hearing their voices in my head rather than...more

This book has me feel like I am in Alice’s rabbit hole…curiouser and curiouser. The tension in the story is a slow building one; however you do not get bored or lost as you read....more
Everyone's lives have been changed because of Jaycie's surge, and everyone's trying to settle into the new swing of things. We learn some interesting things about...more

First before I say anything else, let me just say that this is a BOOK TWO in a series. This is going to have spoilerish bits with regards to BOOK ONE. So if you have NOT read the first book – all you need to know is I LIKED THIS BOOK. Now, stop reading here so you don’t ruin the first book, and go start reading it. =D
This book has a lot going on in it, and I am not really sure what I can say that isn’t totally spoilery. The synopsis sums it up fairly well. In this book we not only...more
In this second installment of Darwin's Children, Jaycie is still trying to get a hold of her powers. Yes, her power surge is over, but she is now more powerful than ever and it's too much for Jaycie to handle.
Allison is acting strange, and no one knows why. She seems very distracted...about something.
The Core's Guardian fairies are weakening, they don't know why, but it's very dangerous...having that they can't protect Jaycie and her family.
Also, vampires are being...more
Shall we talk about what's inside the cover, though? I loved this book! Author, Natasha Larry has created such an amazing series. I love that the focus still remains to be on love and family...or at least for me it is. This series is ful...more
I fucking love, looove Matt! What a character turn around... from borderline sissy to total, alpha male badass. Mmm. Smart, hot boys are fun. Plus, he's funny as hell with John.
It was a yummy, yummy read.
I don't really like the Dey-Vah, LMAO. They really need to get it together. Plus all that appearing out of no where shit... and they're all douchey.
I even loved Clarissa even though she's a psycho astral traveler.
I'm so happy I found this series. I like this book more than the first one. Funny and full of action. All the characters are awesome, especially Jaycie, Matt, & Haylee. I even loved Clarissa even though I'm sure I wasn't supposed to, but she was just too funny. I hope there is a third book coming out.
