I requested this book through NetGalley without reading the first book in the series, so after I was approved for an ARC – I immediately had to purchase “Gambit” to start the story…and the whole time I was p

First, I have to mention that I love the cover art. So eye catching! Mimic is a sequel, and I liked it equally as well as the first book in the series. Willow definitely has some growing up to do, but it's part of her characterization that she continues to develop maturity. She is well written with just enough angst for a teenager. The story develops at a steady pace with action enough to maintain intrest. The motivations of all characters are questionable, and the story will leave you wondering ...more

Rating up because of my love for Book 1. Hoping this is just suffering from book 2 syndrome...

Wonderful follow-up to 'Gambit.' Just as with the series opener, the complex and developed characters were the best part of this book; their motives, their secrets, their interactions. Author C.L. Denault’s characters kept me guessing right until the new cliff-hanger ending; not a bit was predictable. The plot moved forward at a comfortably steady pace, never a dull moment, and nothing felt rushed or forced.

‘Mimic’ is available now; a must-read for fans of well-written YA romance, adventure, or

This book was amazing! It's been a long time since I started a new series or read a new author and was blown away. The characters were well developed and engaging. The storyline and world building were brilliantly well thought out and designed while describing nonexistent technology in a way the reader understood it and it never felt impossible (think "light swords" in those star movies) The clear division between the "have" and "have nots" is blatant and the author does a great job of showing t ...more

“I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own."

Finally! After patiently waiting I was able to get hold of the second book. Sadly, it did not exceeded my expectation since the first book was really great. More like DAMN GOOD. I enjoyed reading this book, but not as much as I enjoyed the first one. Whereas the first book was packed with action and a total page turner, the second book lacked the action I was looking for. It is safe to say tha

I received this novel from net galley and the publisher. Thank you!
Wow! This novel was a great sequel to the first book in the series! The plot thickens as Willow Kent develops her abilities, discovering ones that surpass expectations. Her powers are developing, with the help of her tiger. Willow can be a "brat", but what 16 year old who was uprooted from the only life she has ever know would be amicable to that? Willow develops her relationship with Commander Reece, both attracted to the other.

I wish I would have read the first book, I didn't know this was a sequel! But I got through it. Hundreds of years into the future and people have evolved into almost super human beings? Sounds like what they are already predicting. The society takes away people who are "normal". There's a lot of warring going on. Something Willow, doesn't understand but is in the middle of it and sometimes makes mistakes that cause chaos. I dislike her mother! But Reece? Yum. There'll be a third book for sure. L ...more

I received a free copy through Netgalley in return for an honest review.

Willow is a real teenager. Man, the stupid things she does! And that is what makes her real, and relatable to an extend. During all that she has to deal with, all that she goes through, she remains a person with flaws as well as strengths. I often wanted to shout to her while reading, 'don't be stupid!'. At those moments I hated her, and loved her at the same time.

Denault has created another masterpiece in a character driven novel, which (despite the presence of constructively and plot-driving character flaws), manages to snare the readers attention with its skilled writing style and symbolism. Using the flawed characterisations, Denault manages to ensure that the MC Willow, develops into a mature young young women, by facing perils and consequences in a realistic setting.

I read «Gambit» by C.L. Denaut in early 2017 and was intrigued by the new take on our world! It was one of the main reasons why I couldn’t put the first book down – the setting and the plot stole 100% of my attention. I mentioned in my review of the first book how I didn’t like the main character and the second book didn’t change my opinion.

I love the world that C.L.Denault created – the incredible powers and their source that we weren’t told everything about yet; the political power of prodigie

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Readers of fantasy will thoroughly enjoy this read.

This book has everything from political alliances and betrayal to complicated relationships.

The plot of the book is thrilling with great world building. I held onto my breath with each turn of the page.

I loved how the author went about developing the protagonist's abilities in a way that seemed far too realistic. For a while, I really believed in the fantasy world that C.L. Denault had buil

C.L. Denault is a speculative fiction writer who loves dreaming up tales of adventure and intrigue. A former systems analyst, she gave up her nerdy code-writing skills to stay home with her children (including a son with special needs), and currently lives among the vast stretches of cornfields in Illinois.

Writing and blogging are two of her passions, along with drinking coffee and watching sci-fi
