In this second installment of Darwin's Children, Jaycie is still trying to get a hold of her powers. Yes, her power surge is over, but she is now more powerful than ever and it's too much for Jaycie to handle.
Allison is acting strange, and no one knows why. She seems very distracted...about something.
The Core's Guardian fairies are weakening, they don't know why, but it's very dangerous...having that they can't protect Jaycie and her family.
Also, vampires are being killed, again nobody has a single clue as to why. But let me tell you something: these last three things I just mentioned? Yeah, they're connected. Suspicious...
I really enjoyed this book! I love characters who have some super cool supernatural ability, and this series is filled with them! You know, it wasn't till they mentioned it in Unnatural Law, but these books do remind me of X-Men! :D I love X-Men!
I have to admit, I felt like there was a lot going on in this single book, but once I got to the end I was like, "Ohhhh! So that's how all this was related!"
I really liked all the diverse characters Ms. Larry presented us with...plus we got to meet some new people! And can I say that I was very happy to see more of Matt ;) What he can do really shocked me! It's really very cool, though :)
Oh, and I just HAVE to say this: when I first read book one and it mentioned that Allison had blond hair and big blue eyes, it immediately reminded me of Allison from America's next Top Model. Allison is my favoritest model EVER!! I love her and her weirdness. Anyway, when I saw the cover for Unnatural Law I was like, "Wow, they could be twins!" check out this side-by-side picture:
|Allison and Allison :)|
Freaky, right?? And their names are even spelled the same! So cool! So anyway, as I was reading these books I always imagined Allison to look like this other Allison :)
Overall, I thought this book was pretty darn awesome. And I just found out, like five minutes ago, that there will be another book in the series :D It's called Common Descent and it's expected to be published sometime this year.
Why yes, I am excited for it ;)
Have you read this book? If so, what did you think about it? If not, what do you think? Does it sound like something you might want to read? Leave me a comment! :)
