A fitting second book in the series. It did not pack as many answers as I would have liked, sooo I'm headed to the last and final book in the series to see how this all ends. ...more

I really enjoyed this book (even more than the first one). Seeing Verity go through her daily life on earth after her abduction (and dealing with the trauma of the aftermath) was a pleasant change of pace from book 1. I especially liked how Verity didn't come out of book 1 completely unscathed and that she was put in a position to attend therapy sessions (something that should be more normalized in society and not seen as an act of weakness). Though I kind of expected the twist behind why she wa ...more

This book is the second in the Stellar Blood trilogy, the first being Bitter Blood.

Wow, this book is so crazy good. There will be spoilers so please don't read the review if you haven't read the book:) but I loved the way this book went. There is so much potential in the third book and I can't wait to read it when it releases.

The story continues about a month after Bitter Blood ends, and we learn a whole lot about where Knox is and the secret technological gear that he has. Verity is mutating

Received an ARC copy in exchange for an honest review!

Rating: 4/5

WOW, this book was good. I watch Zara on YouTube and jumped at the opportunity to read one of her works. At first, I was apprehensive about reading a novel about an alien abduction, but Zara writes this in such a unique and interesting way that I was immediately sucked into the story and what was happening.

There were some grammatical and formatting errors with the PDF copy I received but otherwise, I have nothing bad to say about t

Verity is back with her father, a senior military commander.

She was recently abducted and interrogated by... aliens.
She doesn’t know why.

Verity has discovered new skills that she wants to keep a secret...


It wasn’t until page 25 of the book that I remembered the plot of the previous book one .
It brought me back to the fascinating story of the mysterious Verity and the very enigmatic alien Knox.

I barely put down this volume 2, the story is incredible , the end is

After managing to escape back to Earth, Verity had a whole new list of problems and people to deal with. What I loved about this sequel to Obscure Origin was the setting. In the first book, we are taken to an alien spaceship and the majority of the novel was spent learning about the characters and the alien species and its struggles while aboard the ship. In this novel, Verity is back home and in a massive pile of human and alien mess.

Through this book, we learn that while she may be back home,
