Worst. Road Trip. Ever.

Escaping with Reid Wentworth should have been fun, but how can I enjoy it when I just (accidentally) killed someone, my mom and brother are in danger, and the Consortium is trying to enslave humanity? (Yeah, they aren’t fooling around.) So feeling something for Reid Wentwort

*Spoilers for Anomaly*

Enigma was an entertaining conclusion to the Schrodinger's Consortium duology. It was fast paced, had an adorable romance, fun superpowers, and I couldn't help but like some of the new characters. I'm so glad I gave this duology a try, and I will definitely be picking up Tonya Kuper's future releases! Here are some of my thoughts on Enigma -

*My Thoughts*

Tonya Kuper's Enigma is the second installment in the authors Schrodinger's Consortium duology. Enigma is a story filled with deception, intrigue, plenty of action, and romance. As the result of protagonist Josie Harper's actions in Anomaly that led to a characters death, there is the distinct feeling that she and her trainer/partner Reid Wentworth are up against something they can't control without help.

One of the first things that really caught my attention was the amazing character development that Josie went through. In book 1 she was quite naive and innocent but straight away from this book, Josie's character is trying to deal with the consequences of what happened at the end of book 1. She's shaken and quite confused about herself but she works through i

Enigma is the second, and final instalment in the Schrodinger's Consortium series.

Josie and Reid are escaping on a road trip. Reid's main priority is to keep Josie safe, but decisions need to be made to keep her family, and others of their kind safe too. They choose to try and catch the hole (The inside man). It's going to be dangerous, but it needs to be done.

Just like book one, there is action, fantasy, romance, and a little sci-fi.

After a long wait, it was nice to see what happened to Josie and Reid from “Anomaly.”

Unfortunately, I feel a little let down by the resolution. We got to meet secondary characters that were important but not very developed, and the ending seemed very rushed. To be honest, it was confusing to me. In spite of this, I did enjoy it, but not as much as I hoped. There seems to be an opening in the ending for possible further adventures, and I think that opening holds promise for more character develop

Hmm. Well this is awkward. I did not like this as much as the first book at all. It's making me want to go back and re-evaluate Anomaly. Was I just in a good mood? I don't think so. I honestly just don't think this was nearly as good or as entertaining. It was incredibly dull for the first three quarters, and then the climax at the end was both ridiculous and by then, too little too late.

We join Reid and thingy on their way to the HUB, which is the place Reid grew up fully aware of his Oculi abi

I liked the idea in this world of Pushing and Retracting things in this world. You have to have seen it and know it to really Push it. Some of the people can only Push (make it appear) and some can only Retract (make it disappear) , and there are those few who can do both. Both Reid and Josie are called Anomalies and they can do both. This is the conclusion of their story. So if you haven’t read book one, just know that there are spoilers below from Anomaly!

I can't believe how long it took me to finally finish this duet! I read book 1, Anomaly, in 2017, just before this book released, but it's taken me 3 years to get to Enigma, which is downright ridiculous.

After reading Anomaly I was really looking forward to being able to read Enigma. I had some other titles to read and then finally got around to reading Enigma, and it felt like time and the book flew past whilst reading it. I was looking forward to catching up with the great characters of Josie and Reid, as well as finding out how Josie is coping with an awful act she had no choice but to commit in book one!

Expounding upon the world and characters which were first introduced in Anomaly, Kuyper's latest has us following Josie and Reid once again as they navigate the ups and downs of teenage life- with a few extra bumps thrown in due to them being Oculi.
Oh and you know, just the whole, running for their lives thing.  NO big deal.
Although it wasn't really much different as far as technique or style, sometimes I just felt less engrossed in this second part of the story.  I don't know if it's because of

Sometimes you're not quite sure what you'll get with a sequel, especially one as heart-pounding as its predecessor. When it comes to Enigma there's no need to worry. The start gives you just enough time to gather your thoughts and take a few deep breaths before Josie and Reid have to run a few errands like find the mole within the Resistance and you know, save the world.

Josie has barely had enough time to absorb the full impact of how her life has turned upside down and now the fact that her fa

Josie and Reid are back and everything is fraught with danger on top of it all she has to live with killing someone. Worse there is a traitor in the resistance and the Consortium is still after her. Her family is in danger and she had to figure it out before it is too late.

Her powers are continuing to develop as well, and living with and training with her boyfriend is making things even more difficult. So

What I appreciate most about Tonya Kuper's books, from a librarian standpoint, is that they are an easy sell. Enough action for the reluctant readers, enough sci-fi and fandom for the self-proclaimed geeks, enough drama for the romance fans. And the romance manages to be both steamy and PG (and models explicitly stated consent!!) - a tricky feat. My teens love this series, and I enjoyed getting to spend more time with Josie and Reid. ...more

I first read Anomaly in early 2015, a few months after it came out. I wasn’t sure what to expect based on the description (and because I hadn’t had much experience yet with how awesome Entangled Teen books are!), and I remember being very pleasantly surprised at how darn good it was. It had action, romance, believable-though-fantastical elements, and a kick-butt heroine – what more could I ask for? But wait, there’s more!

I read Anomaly at some point last year, and I've been excited for Enigma ever since! I picked up Enigma and I just devoured it! I started it one evening, and finished it the next morning! I was excited to get back into Josie and Reid's world. The beginning was a little rocky as I tried to remember all the terminology, but otherwise it was off to a great start.

I'm not sure you can dive into this world at book 2 without having read book 1, but it almost felt like that for me, so - give it a shot if you want! There isn't much "catch up" work done in the book, so you're essentially on your own for refreshing your memory if you've had many books between #1 and this one.

Reid and Josie start the book on the run from the "bad guys." They're supposed to go on the run, but information about her family heading to the Resistance changes their mind. Sure, it mean

The Force is strong with this second installment to the Schrodinger’s Consortium series..

Full of geek references, I was immediately pulled into this story. Full of deception, action, and just the right amount of romance, Enigma continues the world of the Oculi where Josie, Reid, and a new bunch of allies take on the Consortium. Trying to discover who the mole is, Josie finds her emotions running wild, trying to deal with this new life and the consequences that come with it.

Enigma is the second and final book in the Schrodinger's Consortium duology by Tonya Kuper. Now, in this book we can finally get down to the meat and potatoes of what's going on. We still don't know who's safe or who we can trust this time around. People may not be who they seem. That definitely makes things tricky. Josie impresses me so much. Not because she has all this power, but despite this power, she's still flawed. She doubts herself. She panics. She ma

Josie is trying to develop her abilities, so she can defeat the mole and take the Consortium down. I also liked how Josie and Reid's relationship developed more in this book, and how they were always trying to keep it private since Reid is just supposed to be Josie's trainer.

Reid and Josie are currently on the run from The Consortium and Josie is having trouble dealing with the fact she killed Santos. This is one of the first things I really liked about this book.
