Juliette is at Omega Point, so at least she has some semblance of safety. Here they want to train her to harness her energy. They want her to be able to use her power instead of being a loose cannon. Juliette still doesn't know how to trust people though and clings to what she has with Adam. Adam's different now though. Juliette isn't sure what's going on but he seems more tense and short-tempered. Juliette starts to shrink back in on herself. That's when she finds out that Warner is looking for her...and he's getting close.

At least the dreaded love triangle started in the first book. That makes this a regular love problem versus the awful second book in a series triangle. I don't blame her. There's the safe choice and then the sexy choice. It's a hard decision for a girl to make, especially one with limited human contact.

I quite enjoyed this sequel, finding out all the ins and outs of Omega Point was fascinating. There are a lot of great characters there and even if they only made short appearances they were memorable ones. In this book we also get to see more sides of Warner. It's still hard to pinpoint exactly what is going on in that beautiful head of his. I hope we get to find out more about some of the things Juliette began to discover about him in the next book.

There were a lot of really intense scenes in this novel prepared. It was interesting to see some of Juliette's shell breaking in this book. She is slowly starting to figure out who she really is and I can't wait to see what she decides.

This book is going to leave you wanting more. Book three cannot get here soon enough. A year is a long time to wait, but a delicious amount of time to savor all the things that have happened so far. I can think of a couple of chapters you may just re-read over and over. Tahereh's writing is fantastic and I can not wait to see what happens next to Adam and Juliette and Warner and everyone else. Don't miss this one.

First Line:
"The world might be sunny-side up today."

Favorite Lines:
"Because it's so difficult to fight what you cannot control and right now I can't even control my own imagination as it grips my hair and drags me into the dark."

"The antonym of excellent."

"I'm all out of letters. Fresh out of words. Someone has robbed me of my entire vocabulary."
