I received this book as a review copy for free, in return for an honest review.
Michael is back and now working for the government, along with several other perceiver teenagers. He has a long way to go until he can find his place, as a perceiver, in the adult world, but his hard work may just pay off. Michael is teamed up with the police force, perceiving criminals for intent, and he soon stumbles upon an anomaly that only he can perceive.
He uses his innate bravery and the close group of friends he has accumulated to track and perceive a group of terrorists. He doesn’t stop, even when his life is threatened by a boy with skills that are beyond even the most powerful perceivers.
This book is action packed and isn’t hindered by the usual teen angst. Michael is a character who tries to do the right thing, even if that means going against authorities, and his strength brings a realistic and vibrant essence to his character.
As with the first book in the series, this is not just for teenagers. I thoroughly enjoyed the pace and storyline, and found it well-written and compelling. I can’t wait for the third book to come out.
