Maddie has more problems than the average 17-year-old: A psychotic killer with superpowers wants her dead; a serious medical issue makes a “normal life” impossible; and she’s about to be introduced to Trevor’s family. Guess which one freaks her out the most?
This is book 3 in a series and will contain spoilers to the previous books, read at your own risk
Characters: This book took a turn from focusing on Trevor and Maddie into Maddie and Rachel. The author brings in more characters again with this one and we also lose some as well. My favorite was the addition of Maddie’s mother into Ganzfield. I love her.
Plot: After Ganzifield was attacked in book 2, the survivors have returned back to try to rebuild what was lost. Also they still have to keep track of Isaiah and his travels. He is still out killing people and eventually will find his way back to the group to finish off what he did not complete in book 2.
Writing: Maddie still has the loss of her speech abilities and can only communicate through the telepathy and her boyfriend Trevor. This makes for interesting reading but the author is able to portray how each person communicates effectively through the writing. Something that with the variety of powers that each person has in Ganzifield could have been very confusing. But there is no confusion here. Her books read very much like a science fiction/ fantasy story.
Originality: There are several different abilities that the students of Ganzfield possess. From healing to mind readers and those that can stretch their mind power out to help or influence others. The students of Ganzfield do take a supplement pill that enhances their abilities and they have to go through training drills and become a target to outside organizations, others like themselves or want to have what they have.
Krista’s Review: The previous 2 books were very high paced and action packed. Several characters dying and more being brought in. The magical fighting scenes and event the Main characters getting hurt was a change of pace to the other Young Adult stories out there where everything turns out ok in the end. With book 3 we take a step back from all of the intensity and take a deeper look at some of the characters other than focusing on Maddie and Trevor. Rachel plays a huge role in this one as well as learning more about the effects that the pill supplements may have on them and their children. It’s not as action packed or intense as the previous two, but more delving deeper into the future of Ganzfield and the repercussions of the supplements on their families and keeping Isaiah from getting what he wants.
