Calvin leaned back on his pillows, watching [Caledonia's] magical eyes dart back and forth as she mastered the keyboard, assimilating information faster than he ever imagined possible. He smiled wryly, thinking that the day he was beaten up in the cemetery was probably the luckiest day of his life. ~The Mackenzie Legacy
Oh man, what an adventure! This is what I love about Derrolyn's writing: there is always something exciting and action-y going on! Oh! And let's not forget about the yummy romance ;)
As you may recall from The Athena Effect, the evil Dr. Reed is now the legal guardian of Cali. But there was no way in hell Cali was gonna stay put there until she was 18. So, Cali escaped with the lovely, gorgeous Cal and have been on the run since then. However, things are far from over!
To begin with Caledonia wont really be (relatively) safe until she turns 18. Second, remember the girl Layla who has the same ability as Cali? Well, she and her twin brother are still being held prisoner, even if they don't believe so. And Cali being the good soul that she is wants to rescue them. But there is so much more to this story than you can imagine! And I am dying to tell you because it was just so surprising! That and the new info we found out about the so called "Athena Effect." But I wont spoil it for you ;) But man it's good stuff!
However, there were some moments where the actions and events were kinda predictable, so I was just a bit disappointed when that happened 'cause I LOVE being surprised!
Anyway, while Cali's big day arrives (her 18th b-day), she and Cal are hiding away, never staying in one place for too long...you know, keeping it on a down-low. And it's SO romantic! They situation they are in is beyond horrible, but Calvin...*swoons* He is just a really sweet guy, very fun, and so protective of Cali! I adore him! And man, Cali? Gone is the shy, quiet, naive girl. In her place is a independent, brave, and fierce young woman! She's amazing!
So far I am really enjoying this series! And even though the book didn't exactly end on a cliffhanger, per se, we know there will be more troubles up ahead for Cali and Layla...and I cannot wait to see what those adventures will have in store for us!
