    I feel like I m under a lot of pressure to be the first person ever to post a review on this but I ll try my best est to come up with an objectively fair review As I have said in my review of the prequel, the story has a lot of potential It is the main reason I decided to read the sequel Fortunately, I did find several things here I thought missing in the first book For one, I think the main character, Melina, has undergone a good dose of changes and developments She has become a dynamic character especially with this unexpected twist to her abilities I also like the consistency of the supporting characters from the first book up to this sequel and I like that the story took off right where the first book ended It came however to my attention that the pacing of the plot here seems a lot slower than that of the first book During the first half of the story, I felt like nothing much happened I could not help notice several instances in which Melina willingly submitted to her guardian s advice that she rest I must say that she was well rested during the first half of the book Do not give up on the book though, because events did become interesting later in the story especially at the ending where Melina finally showcases her abilities The writing style still hasn t changed since the first book Dialogues made up than half of the entire story but the good thing is the dialogues here have become substantial The romance to me was a bit uninteresting and sort of awkward but I guess it s simply because it isn t the focus of the story The arrival of the new character, Dean, to me seems a little bit out of place and I find his role quite insignificant to the story So honestly, like the title of the book, I am torn about my feelings for this book Some parts I found okay, some parts I didn t like and some parts I liked I guess I will just have to let the wheel decide Please don t hate me, Ashley Stambaugh.

    3.5 stars I have mixed feelings about this book One of my complaints in the first book was that it was hard for me to buy into Melina and Lee s relationship In this book, three months have passed and I felt like their relationship was, indeed, moving forward and I liked that They don t have much time by themselves to develop their relationship, though, so I won t be completely surprised if they don t end up together.This book started out slow to me Melina was resting a lot so it didn t feel like too much happened for a while A new character, Dean, was introduced, and I kept waiting for something interesting to happen with him By the end, I still wasn t sure what his purpose was possible love interest or maybe someone who will betray her in the end or just another human that understands what she s going through so I m curious to see if he ll appear again in the next book.Melina didn t have a lot of one on one interaction with her guiding angel, Walter, who is now an elder, but he was still there when she needed him Walter and another elder, Phinneas, set out to get information that will help Melina As they got that information and started understanding what was going on with Melina, it got interesting and there were some twists thrown in that they needed to figure out how to deal with I thought Ms Stambaugh did a great job of setting up the final book and I m looking forward to learning how Melina s story ends I received a copy of this book to review My opinion is 100% my own.Mel s Shelves

    What to say here is difficult for me, not in a bad way though I enjoyed the first book and did this one as well I just have a few things that left me on the fence There is to this than the first story The plot for Melina goes along smoothly I really liked the development of her abilities in this one I love the way her character is written She just grabs your attention and pulls you in I do feel like she needs time for the romance in the plot or it needs to drop I just feel like it is stuck in there When it comes to romance in a book I want the full effect or none at all I don t think the story needs to be centered around it, but it would be nice to see of it I am also a bit hung up on Dean s character He is new and I just don t know what he brings to the story, if anything I hope that we will learn in the next installment Aside from these things the story flows well after the first couple of chapters I enjoyed the book and am excited to see what comes next in Melina s life Excited to see where the author will take the character as well as the other characters I do like this series and will definitely read on.

    I really enjoyed the second installment of this series I was glad to see that Melina and Lee were still together, I enjoyed the new characters and I couldn t wait to see what was causing her all of this pain I definitely had a hard time putting it down My only complaint was this one felt like there wasn t as much action as the Collide , but it was still enjoyable I can t wait for 3 to see how it ends
