The heart-stopping sequel to Earthbound – an epic love triangle you’ve never seen before! Tavia Michaels is an Earthbound – a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth or destroy it. The Reduciata, a rival faction of Earthbounds, has created a virus that is wiping out swathes of the planet. But before Tavia can act on this discovery, she is captured and imprisoned. Huddled in a cell with her eternal lover, Logan, she loses track of the days until they are mysteriously rescued…For Tavia isn’t like other Earthbound. As her powers awaken, her centuries-long relationship with Logan is threatened, and when Benson – the best friend who’s always stood by her – returns Tavia must again face a terrible choice between those she loves. Can Tavia stop the destruction of Earth and uncover the ultimate truth about the Earthbound before it’s too late?
I didn’t find myself enjoying this one as much as I liked Earthbound. It seemed more… predictable.
Tavia and Logan are in Curatoria headquarters. It is there that they meet Daniel, the leader of the Curatoria. Daniel wants Tavia’s help to stop the virus devastating the planet, or at least to help create a vaccine.
It is also at Curatoria headquarters that Tavia learns the true extent of the traumatic brain injury (TBI) she received during the plane crash. She also realizes the full implications of what that means for her… and Logan.
This book does have a love triangle that I didn’t really like. To be completely honest, I couldn’t get behind either boy. Logan is the fated, destined, immortal lover Tavia is bound to. Benson is the boy human Tavia fell for before all the Earthbound stuff came up. Both of them do things that I didn’t like. I didn’t really care much about either but I did feel a bit bad for Logan a few times.
Anyway, I guess there is a third book in this series but I’m not entirely sure I want to read it. I’m pretty sure I can guess the ending of the series already. With that said, I did enjoy this book as it did entertain me.
