Series: Zellie Wells #2
Rating: 3 of 5 stars
Zellie Wells life is changing. Her relationship with Avery is growing stronger every day, but their parents are still giving them ultimatums and trying to keep them apart. Her newly discovered powers have all but disappeared. Benjamin, another young Retroact, is back and has brought with him a painful shared vision and a troubled past. While working together to figure out what the vision means, Zellie discovers that Benjamin is a worthy friend and mentor. If only he could keep his hands off of her-if only she wanted him to…
Yeah, so I pretty much devoured this in a matter of hours. I hardly ever read books in a few hours anymore. Although, I will allow for the fact that it is a weekend, ergo lots more time to actually read, ergo less distractions, but that’s not to discount just how much I enjoyed Glimmer in full flex.
So this time around, we get a little more action from Zellie and Avery on the virginity front (wink wink) and a lot more action on The Society front, mostly in the form of Ben and his Lookout, Frank’s involvement trying to strengthen Zellie’s power and figure out what Ben’s are all about. And then there’s this guy who’s plotting to kill them both, but, like in Glow, despite the potential of the situation to devolve into catastrophic dark places (like, oh, say, KILLING ZELLIE AND BEN), we all know that never happens. (Well, not really.)
Anyway, it’s all pure fluffy goodness all over again. Writing’s not spectacular, but the story’s far more readable than it has any rights to be. I still can’t believe I actually enjoy these books. But they’re good fun. What’s the point in denying that? Guilty pleasure, for sure.
Plus, I’m a sucker for homosexual/bisexual men and a girl who’s not afraid to lose her virginity at 16.
I’m actually excited about where Glow will go. :]
P.S. I stayed up until like 3 o’clock reading this. That’s always a good sign.
