Unlike a lot of sequels, Miyuki doesn’t spend a lot of time doing a recap on the first book, Mara. Thankfully, Mara was easily memorable that I didn’t have any trouble keeping up with the story even if it had been months since I read the first book. I think a couple of people have been wondering why the books are named after the characters in the book. I don’t really know what the author’s attention is, but as I see it, certa

Once again, Veronica Bane has proven to me that I truly can enjoy short stories! Although I'm still left wishing for more of this fantastic series. Miyuki starts right where Mara, the previous story, ended, and there isn't any break for the characters or the pace. I ended up finishing the entire thing in about two hours, reading straight through to the end!

Even though this book is titled after Miyuki, one of the main characters, it doesn't focus only on her adventures. The perspective bounces be

Miyuki was not the story I would’ve liked it to be, and I blame the page limit for this. Although this second installment of the Unusuals series was almost as badass and action-packed as the first, character and relationship development seemed to be left behind, and the plot twists were unusual and unexpected. The story also ended with a cliffhanger, and you know how I feel about those… (and if you don’t, you’re about to!)

Introduction

I have to say I enjoyed every minute of this book. Action-wise it was best than the first one, but in character development I felt it was a bit short, because we were left almost in the same place as we were in book one.

As it is a novella, the plot is very fast paced, which is good when it comes to getting into the book, but not so helpful at times because I’m always left wanting more and with tons of unanswered questions. I think maybe a longer book will allow the plot to develop with more deta

In Miyuki I was launched back into the world of the Unusuals! I rejoined the band of misfit teenagers in Jericho.

Once again the teens are fighting for their right to stay alive and live their lives in peace! We see the return of the baddies behind the original attack in book 1. We meet some new players! Will these new players be good or bad?

So Mara, Miyuki and the rest of the group of Unusuals need to stick together and be prepared to fight once more. Not everyone will be able to fight as there

Book Review originally published here: http://www.iheartreading.net/book-tou...

In "Miyuki", the sequel to "Mara", our two heroines and their friends have it even tougher than in the first book. Now they all know they have some kind of super power – Alex’s is lightning, Mara has fire, and Miyuki has water – but that doesn’t mean they’re invincible. With The Stranger still hunting Unusuals, and with some of the other Unusuals turning against their own, they have their work carved out for them if t

This review published originally on giantsquidbooks.com.

After reading Mara I couldn’t wait for the second book in Veronica Bane’s Unusuals series–it was just begging for a sequel. At the end of Mara, the Unusuals have just begun to come together and confront the danger they face from the Stranger as well as their personal conflicts: Mara’s past with her abusive brother, Chris’ complicated feelings for Miyuki, Miyuki’s absent parents. All of that and more develops in this second installment, and–

A copy of this novel was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Woah. WOAH. That’s pretty much the only thing going around in my mind after finishing Miyuki. WOAH.

So Mara was a pretty exciting novel. A lot of things happened and there was a lot of drama. Take that and multiply it by one hundred and you get Miyuki.

Everything was action all the time – and it was amazing! There was shock after shock after shock, and drama after drama. But the most amazing thing was that it all flow

Wow, this book was...surprising. Just as action-packed as the first book, the stakes are even higher! Spoilers if you haven't read Mara.

The main character is Miyuki in this book, and boy is she awesome. While I didn't like her as much as Mara, she's still a kicking character. Picking up right where the first book left off, Miyuki and the gang are still running!

Miyuki has a interesting back story, and good character development, but she's still not as great as Mara. I don't know; I think Mara is

I received a digital copy of this book for review as part of the Miyuki blog tour.

Ten Second Synopsis:
Miyuki and the other unusuals must decide whether to fight or flee as the stakes get higher in the scheme to hunt and use Unusuals in Jericho.

This book seemed a lot darker than the first in the series. There seemed to be a lot more violence and the characters were collectively descending into a state of fear (understandably), with some start

I was a huge fan of the first book, but this one takes everything to the next level. Leaner, tighter, and with more character development. It's an awesome ride and definitely ups the stakes. I think the voice is even better with this one, and I'm anxiously awaiting the third book!

I grew up in San Diego, California and spent my days writing in local coffee shops and at the beach. My writing was and has always been fed a healthy diet of chai tea lattes and film scores.

I studied Creative Writing at Chapman University and now live in Los Angeles.

My book Mara was released August 2013 and is now available. The sequel, Miyuki, debuted April 2014.
