Read in May, 2012

So I liked the first one in the series and was keen on reading the second one. This one was a little better than the first. Why? Pirates. That should pretty much sum it up. Although like the previous novel there was still something missing. I think Reichs is just not yet use to writing for young adult readers. Still it was pretty cool learning some of the lessons in this book, and the history was overall pretty awesome to learn too.
Basically Tory and her friends are starting to get a grip on their powers, although they still have no clue what is going on with them, or how it will change in the future but they’re trying. To top everything off they are at risk of being split apart so they go through all the hoops possible to save their pack.
And Tory is working on her debut…which, I find completely hilarious. But she also finally gets some good licks in. I’m just worried that the power that she continues to feel increasing inside her with every flare, the same power that makes her pack leader, will make her loose control
Good:
Tory: She’s smart
Hi: Also very smart and very very funny.
Sheldon: Dido
Ben: The muscle of the bunch. He’s tall, dark, and silence, probably will a little bit of anger issues. Poor Ben. Always having to get kicked, slapped, or insulted to be able to flare. Oh p.s I’m only guessing but I think he likes Tory. Hence why he hates Jason so much. Ahh…teen angst.
Bad:
A little slow and a little long. Sometimes I found that I was over powered with information and lessons that I felt like taking a break but then I also just wanted to blaze though and get the book done.
Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):
Overall I found some of her writing in this novel confusing. She doesn’t mention their moments very well so sometimes I question how they got from one point to another. And when dealing with four main characters there seemed to be confusion with regards to who was speaking and their individual thoughts, even what they were referring to. Causing me to have to re-read something things to make sure I got it right. Overall though I loved the story and characters. But I do question how these kids can get away with so much and their parents never seem to notice until the absolute end. Lucky…

“Amazing.” Hi stripped off his shirt, wrung it out. “Score one for your honker.” “Thanks, I think.” I cocked my chin at Hi’s substantial midsection. “Nice abs.” “Yeah, I work out twice a month. No expectations. But stop hitting on me, it’s embarrassing.”
