The Story- (Goodreads)
Juliet Wildfire Stone and her best friend, Troy Buckhorn, barely escaped their sleepy Arizona town alive. Now they’re speeding to New York City to find the three other Chosen. The Chosen must band together to face an ancient foe that threatens all humanity.
Yet Juliet doesn’t know whom to trust, and strange things are happening in the City.
The Chosen will be tested, their resolve questioned, and their flaws exposed. Each must decide whether he or she will fulfill their destiny—or run. To defeat the enemy, they must stop battling among themselves and overcome their own struggles.
Only one can lead them. Will Juliet embrace her powers in time?
Loved it! Read it straight though. So, this book takes up right where the first book, The Wind Catcher, ended. Juliet and her best bud Troy are a great duo. Troy is always by her side, ready to fight at a moments notice, even though he doesn't have any superpowers. Plus, he is a connection to her Native American heritage and keeps her balanced. Juliet really struggles with allowing him to remain with the new group of four, but she only does it because she cares. Of course, Troy follows his own ideas, and I love that.
I enjoyed reading about the other three hybrids and found each of their characters well thought out and fun. I especially couldn't stand (which is a sign of good writing) Blake, the wealthy snot who has so many issues. It is nice to see him change as the story progresses.
Then there is the weird hotel owner, Stuart. I liked that I couldn't figure out much about him and didn't know if he was a good or bad guy. The author uses him to introduce more information about the Deltaite (the bad aliens) and their world.
Overall, a nice, action filled ride that mixes sci-fi and fantasy. I'm really looking forward to the next book now that all four of our Chosen are fighting together. 5 stars!
