This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 2.25 of 5 two in a series. I've somehow done it again and jumped into the middle of a series. This does not appear to be a series that it is easy to jump into right in the middle. The biggest problem is understanding who the characters are and their relationships. It was clear that I was missing something as I went through the book.

Not too far into the future, aliens have visited the earth but have since moved on. Unfort

I get that after the events in the first book there would be emotional difficulties dealing with everything, but the first 60-70% of the book felt like them wandering around, depressed and hopeless. Sure, there were a couple battles with the bad guys in there and constant tension of them being found, but I was too exhausted to care. At least the end of the book ramped up and things happened, but most of those decisions didn't feel earned or even wrestled with well enough. To cap it off

Twists and Turns Everywhere

Although I was disappointed with the second book, I'm glad I persevered, because this one was a doozy. We learned so many answers about Pen and her family. I was reading late into the night wanting to find out more. I can't wait to get into the next book.

Call Forth the Waves had a slower beginning than the first book in the series, but packed in more information about the Touched and how the Commission worked. It added some grey areas for characters that were strictly known as good/bad in the previous book and added some hints for bigger twists later on in the series, which I have some ideas of what will happen.

I think I really need to go back and read book one. I felt a little lost at times since I didn't really know the characters. But other than that it was an enjoyable story.

Really good. In my opinion better than the first one. I grew a little tired halfway through the first book, but this one kept my hooked until the very end. Definitely worth a read!

Makes you sit on the edge of your seat. Waiting to see what will happen next. Well written the emotions and energy of the characters leap off the page.

Like this one better in a lot of ways- we have expanded our group and some of my suspicions have borne out. Even so, I still don't know where this is going or where it might end...

I knew it. I knew Hatton would do this to me...
She left me hanging. Again.
O.M.G. I need the next installment now. Like, yesterday.
The cliffhanger in this novel must lead to another. If it ended this way, I would pull my hair out. No, it must be a cliffhanger. I just wish I knew when the next installment was coming out.
So Hatton really struts her stuff in this novel. At this point we (the reader) are used t

Loved it!

I am really enjoying this story line and can't wait to see how it ends!
I read the second book so fast that I ended up reading several chapters twice!
Somehow I managed to not notice that this book was second in a series when entering the giveaway. I felt early on like I was missing something. Some vital piece that makes me really care and connect with the characters. I usually don't do books out of order so it's a very real possibility the problem is me. lol I would love to get my hands on the first book because there is real magic here. I just wouldn't recommend it as a stand alone. I'll probably have more to say after reading the first boo ...more

20 aug 16, 1st from hatton for me. the celestine series book 2. it happens. jumping into a series out-of-order. oh well. how'd i come to be here? that, i know. reading on the kindle, you open it up, turn it on, screen lights up, there's usually an ad. this story is one of a few i've purchased like that now. the price was right. 'reduced' i think...could be wrong, regardless the price was right. rain all day today, too. good day for pickling, bread & butter pickles, dilly bean, pot full of green ...more

Great story telling

I love books that are well written with a good plot and wonderful characters. This book transforms reality but keeps you guessing. The twists and turns never disappoints. It's a whole new universe. I can not wait for the next book.

I loved the first book in this series, but this one seemed a bit slow to me.

L.J. Hatton is a Texan, born and raised. She sometimes refers to the towns she’s lived in by the movies filmed in them, and if she wasn’t working as a professional pretender, she’d likely be holed up in a lab somewhere doing genetics research.

She is also the author of Sing Down the Stars, the first volume in her Celestine series.
