The sky was slightly brighter when I walked back outside, though there was still no break in the clouds. In spite of it, I could see the lightness in the sky where the sun must be hiding, and felt the slight creep of a smile at the corner of my lips as I trod across the salted sidewalks, back to the dormitory I was calling home.

This book was slightly better than the last, but not by much.

The one thing this series has going for it is action. I like action. It's probably the only reason why I have been able to finish the books.

I found it amusing how Sienna mentions that the movie she was watching with Zack was stupid and didn't have a plot. Ironic, really, considering how the plot to this book and the first was also non-existent.

There is a main goal here somewhere, but as of yet, I have no clue what it is. And normally

I am a huge fan of this author. It seems like every story he writes, he puts his heart and soul into it and you get this work of pure creativity with some very hefty world building.
Ya'll know I do like book covers(even if I am reading it on a digital device) and if one stands out for me I love to point out the reasons why.
Obviously fire is a pretty metaphorical element in a story. It is hot, it burns everything around, but it also brings s

Book 2, Untouched, is more or less Sienna "finding herself" after discovering some strange and overwhelming facts she never even imagined could be possible. We welcome a few more dangerous characters to the series, and even find minor characters mentioned in book 1 finally getting a little spotlight. Also jam-packed with action, there's plenty more adrenaline and vigor for the thrill-seekers. With no sign of her mother still, Sienna is stuck with no one or no place to go. She chooses to stay wit ...more

This book was much better than "Alone". I must say that I was not expecting the final part, I was really surprised (something that did not happen in book 1).
The only problem for me was Sienna steping out of the line of cool insulting to hurting feelings too quickly, I was hoping for a little more consideration in some cases.
What I really liked in this book was the message that it sends, about not caring too much with the bad things that happen but more with what we can do from there, how to mak

Untouched picked up right after Alone ended, and I gotta admit that I couldn't put this book down for longer than a sleep session at 1am. Managed to read even though my eyes were swimming in blood. You could see the veins, seriously. But, Untouched did touch me. It was action packed. It was teenage-y but it had plenty of adult repercussions, and many many questions left unanswered. Not to count the shocking outcomes: wild animal living inside her head, wild human to

Recommends it for: people who like NA meta-human stories with a bit of drama and a touch of romance
I didn't enjoy this as much as the first book, but the reason is highly subjective. Untouched deals more with Sienna's emotional development and recovery from the events of the first book. Unfortunately this means she goes through a lot of self-indulgent and self-pitying behaviors. If you've ever been around anyone going through that, you know it's fairly obnoxious. Crane's portrayal is accurate enough to be as annoying as being around the real thing. There is also more of a romance factor in th ...more

Book two in the Girl In the Box trilogy. This one has Sienna battling an Iron Man type guy while trying to locate her mother. She is also being recruited by the Directorate to be one of their superior Metahumans (a human with super powers. Kinda similar to X-Men). I'm not 100% convinced with this book hence the 3-star rating. There are still many glaring flaws in this storyline. After Book 3, I am done with this series. Not really worth my time to read any further.

This was alright. I think it's interesting how Wolfe gets stuck in Sienna's head. That's a pretty rough side affect of her powers, and it makes sense, so I'm actually surprised I haven't read something like it before. Sienna still annoys be though, because she just does and says whatever she wants without thinking about what it means for other people. She admits to being wrong in the last book, but she doesn't think she's ever in the wrong in this one, and I really don't like that.

In this second book of 'The Girl in the Box'series, heroine Sienna, having dispatched Wolfe, is now fighting a flaming flying Russian meta human who is looking for his dead/cloned sister. As he erases an entire town with a fireball in order to gain the Directorate's attention and chars Sienna's hand to a crisp in his quest, our heroine has her hands full (or the one remaining) to say the least. But Sienna has a plan.

I thought this was well written but it left me with so many questions. There were several things (read below) that left me confused because certain things weren't adding up, in my opinion. I had to get rid of some of them because I ended up with so many...majorly long review.

Sienna seemed to be a lot more than just sarcastic in book 2. Like she referenced different things/cliches, that made me question where she learned, heard, saw them from. Considering she hadn't been out that long, I doubt s

*May contain minor spoilers for Alone (#1)*

Untouched is the second book in The Girl in the Box series. I am a huge fan of this author, and every Girl in the Box story just makes me love him more. Once again the story is told from Sienna's point of view. I love Sienna! She is such a smart-ass, and I love her attitude. I also enjoy getting to see inside her head. She's so tough on the outside and refuses to show any weakness.

Book #2 continues with the coming out/becoming aware by the main character Sienna. At the start of the book we're introduced to a character from 1908 Russia named Aleksandr Gavrikov. This book gives us more insight to these special people and the different interactions between them and Sienna, Kurt, Zack and others at the agency Directorate.

In this book Sienna is dealing with the fact of not being Touched. I can't imagine what life was like for this soon to be eighteen year old whose been alone

This is the second book in the Girl in a Box series. It is an urban supernatural with a flair of dystopian fantasy. Crane doesn't disappoint with yet another fine example of his creative imagination.

The main character Sienna has finally figured out what her main meta power is, she is one of very few succubi. Crane hasn't used the word succubus in the same sense as the usual contemporary paranormal/supernatural books.
Sienna 'takes in' the people she overpowers and then by definition they become

If a single day goes by in this series in which Sienna doesn't get pummeled within an inch of her life, I'll be terribly surprised. In the first book, it was dramatic. She'd been training as a fighter for twelve years straight against her own mother, and as soon as she leaves the house, she gets beaten and tortured nearly to death multiple times a day for a week. That was dramatic. When it happens in the second book, it begins to lose its punch. Yeah, Sienna's getting beaten up again. She'll be ...more

This was a really good book and packed to the gills with action. I also loved the learning about the different metas powers. I was glade that old man winter explained some things from the first book. There was some setups for the next book that left us wondering whats going on just as in the first one, but this time with Aleksandr. I felt like he was the main "to do" in this book and all that was important from the first book took a back seat which is what I didn't like. Sienna didn't know what ...more
