A year has passed since Charlotte and Kevin first stepped
through the gate into Energo and neither has been able to settle back into their normal lives. Charlotte tries to distract herself from thoughts of Calvin with the antics of James and her growing friendship with Liam. Kevin can’t seem to shake his feelings for Samantha as he adjusts to his new identity as a college basketball player.
When they unexpectedly return to Energo, both Charlotte and Kevin must face their fears and become the leaders they were always meant to be.
Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala
Charlotte knows they have to go back. The resistance needs help and they need to save her mom. It happens sooner rather than later. Charlotte, Kevin, Monty and her guardians enter the gate. They have a job to do. Charlotte is to take a group and go save her mother. Kevin is taking another group to persuade other countries belonging to the Pact to side with the resistance against Blake. He has grown stronger and darker. His powers are surprising. They need all the help they can get to defeat him.
Kevin has to blindly be the Ambassador and Charlotte has to trust in herself as the Essence. They are both tested at every turn. As they prepare for real battle they learn what they might have to sacrifice.
This is the second book in the series. The story picks up a year later. You can see how Charlotte is suffering without her Gerard. This story is full of surprises concerning Liam and what Kevin achieves. I also like that Charlotte is gaining confidence and embracing her destiny. She is my favorite character. She has had to make the tough choices.
This book is setting up for the epic battle that is coming. It gives you a little taste at the end. There are some shocking revelations from the author. This story was a good bridge of the beginning of the series, setting up for the end. I can’t wait to see how it ends. A great addition. I give it a 4 out of 5.
