Book Thursday

Beyond Reach (True Calling #2)Beyond Reach by Siobhan Davis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh my goodness, did I ever enjoy this book. For me, it read much better than the first book. It's probably because I'm unabashedly team Cal. And there was a clear answer for his sudden aggression - something I really appreciated.

Everything picks up not long after the end of True Calling, with an infuriating moment of doubt creation about Cal. I did mention that I'm team Cal, right? ;) The way in which Ari's gift was developed was interesting, so much so that I can even forgive the "But of course she can do something super special that other special people like her can't do."

It was great to get Zane's point of view. Unfortunately, it still didn't get me to change sides. His moments of whining and self-pity just because such an ugh thing. I wanted to slap him upside the head, often. The reveals about him and Clementine were pretty interesting and unexpected.

The book doesn't shy from some darker elements, but they're items that are part and parcel of a dystopian world.

I can't wait to read the next book, it'll give me some answers...and hopefully more Cal moments ;)
