So when Hallowed came out I was really looking forward to reading it. I mean I loved Tucker and Clara's relationship. But then I started reading and was somewhat disappointed with the story. Don't get me wrong there were parts I loved but for the most part it was just ok for me.
The second book in a series is usually one that drives me crazy. This one did that. I mean why do authors always mess with a good relationship? In Hallowed Clara has to face a lot of challenges. She finds things out about her family that I was even shocked to discover. She thinks that there is more to her purpose and then there is Samjeeza. I have mixed feeling about him. We meet a lot of new characters and learn more about some of the characters from Unearthly.
I felt the struggles between how Clara felt about Tucker and doing what she feels is right. Then there is Christian, who I wasn't sure about in the last one. I mean I liked him but I was all Team Tucker. But this time around I really started to like him and am starting to think that maybe he is the better choice for Clara. I can over look some of the stupid selfish things that he does in this one. The way he is there for Clara at her most vulnerable times just melts my heart.
There is suspense, action, heartbreak and a love triangle is forming. The ending is kinda crazy, I was like WHAT when we learn what Jeffery did. Yeah there are things I liked and things I didn't in this story. Overall I give it 3 stars. I will being reading Boundless because I have to know what happens.

She was adopted at a young age, is smart and she is in love with a guy she has never met. Krista has been dreaming about the same guy for years but she never sees his face. She has no interest in any other guys, she is in love with her dream guy.
When her adopted dad dies, Krista and her mom decide to move from Montana to Santa Cruz, California. She has always had a feeling this is where she needs to be. She starts school where she meets her new best friend who seems to share a connection with her. Then the unthinkable happens, Krista meets the guy from her dreams. She instanly knows it's him and he feels the same way. Krista, her dream guy, Mark, her best friend Sam and Sam's boyfriend Shawn discover that they all share a connection. When they start searching things start happening. Someone out there doesn't want them to discover the truth of what they are and how they are connected.
I loved how Krista started out as a sensative girl only to become such a strong character by the end. The relationship between her and Mark was so well written. I love how their connection was instant and how they seem to balance each other out so well. I truely enjoyed all the characters and how each had their own specific personality and connection to one of the others. There were a lot of twists and turns that I didn't see coming. It's not until towards the end that you find out a little of what they are. This one kept me reading late into the night, I just couldn't put it down. I'm looking forward to reading the sequel, Forgotten Souls.

Brett is a normal teenage girl until one night when her parents are killed in a plane crash. Everything in her life is turned upside down. She is put into foster care. It's not long though before a group/organization asks her to be part of a newly discovered planet Verita. Brett agrees and wakes up years later after being frozen only to discover that she is the same age but has acquired new knowledge. She quickly realizes that everyone else is young like her and everyone has some sort of new knowledge too. It's not long before she makes friends and meets two guys that she is torn between. While working out in the field as part of her job she discovers that everything is not what it seems. There is so much to learn about and to discover. At the same time there are things beyond the fence that is far more dangerous that she first thought.
The author provided a good description of the planet and what it would be like to be there. I liked the characters and the plot. I did think some things were a little drawn out. We don't learn much about the characters and we are left with a lot of unanswered questions. I was not ready for it to end when it did. There is friendship, romance, suspense and adventure all rolled into a good first book. I'm looking forward to see what is next for Brett and her friends.
