Blurb: It’s decision time for the teens of Oakwood: join the Champions and develop their supernatural abilities or be expelled from the neighborhood — and each other’s lives — forever.
For Janis, there are no clear answers. It doesn’t help that she and Scott, now girlfriend-boyfriend, disagree over the Program’s intentions. Janis just wants to know what happened to the last team. Is that so crazy? And why does Director Kilmer seem determined to keep that information a mystery?
Flashback to 1961 Washington, D.C., where shape shifter Reginald Perry is struggling with his own questions. Namely, who’s assassinating his fellow Champions? His quest will carry him deep inside the nation’s power centers, but can he resurface before becoming a target himself? Or has someone already marked the last Champion from that era for death?
Review: This one is probably even better than the first book, You Don’t Know Me. I loved this one.
Is it bad that I’m rooting for the main couple to break up so Janis can get with Tyler? I’m feeling more of a connection between them than I am between her and Scott. I loved their interactions and I love Tyler. He’s a good boy.
This book had me on the edge of my seat the entire time, thinking about it while I was at work and needing to know what happens. I’m so glad that I stumbled across this series.
I don’t feel like I’m skipping over anything to get to the next part, I’m thinking about how the past books connect and I don’t feel like I’m forcing myself to continue on with something I’m not enjoying. Like I said before, it’s been a while since I’ve had a story inspire me enough to read on in a series and it doesn’t hurt that I have Kindle Unlimited, so I can borrow and read for free.
The action mixed with the mystery, the interactions between the characters, this whole series is a wild ride. I’m still waiting for the twist, where the implications from the beginning of The Watchers come into play. I’m waiting for that other shoe to drop. There’s 7 books in this series and I’m on the third, so we’ll see.
Even if the intended audience for this series is of the teenage variety, I feel like adults who enjoy the superhero, scifi, super power world would enjoy this as well and have fun reading it. It’s very compelling and is very hard to put down.
I had to go to work early in the morning the night I finished this book and I stayed up until almost 1 to write this review and download the next book.
Maybe this is what I needed to help me get out of my slump, a riveting action story with mystery and plot twists.
Thank you for reading my review.
