Cove Member Robin's Review!
Thank you Reading Cove for providing me a copy of Beyond Reach. This is my honest review of the book.
The second book in the True Calling series, maintains the high level of energy and suspense that was built in Book One, and then "kicks it up" several notches as Ariana returns to Earth with Zane and the war between the Government and the Clementia rebels escalates.
The romantic aspect of the series gets even more complicated in Beyond Reach. Ariana is still crazy in love with Cal but without giving away any spoilers, she is given ample reason to wonder if she really knows the man she loves. Zane has a deep love for Ariana and she has feelings for him but since her memories of Earth were erased when she was sent to Novo, she does not fully understand her ties to Zane. To complete the love triangle there is someone who is in love with Zane and knows that she has no hope as long as Ariana is back in his life. She makes it her mission to get rid of Ariana to free Zane to love someone else. Ariana has left so much behind when she escapes from Novo but will not rest until everyone she loves is together again. To do so she puts herself and Zane in grave danger.
The author has created a solidly written series that is a pure delight to read. In Beyond Reach there are aspects of the plotline that seem to carry on from hints provided in the previous book or are logical steps in the progression of the story, but the author weaves many unexpected events and twists into the storyline to maintain the suspense and addictiveness of the plot from beginning to end.
The characters are well developed and believable. Although I am a fan of Ariana, there were times when the decisions she made drove me crazy, but when I thought about it, her decisions seemed age appropriate for her even though they resulted in putting her and those she loved in harms way.
Beyond Reach lays a solid foundation for Book Three and I am waiting impatiently for the next installment in this series. Rarely do two books by the same author make my “best reads” of the year, but I have no doubt that these two books will be high on the list.
I can honestly say that this series is just fantastic and I most highly recommend it to readers who are looking for a really good young adult dystopian series. Additionally, I offer my sincere thanks to the author for creating such a great series that has me completely hooked and has provided many hours of thoroughly enjoyable reading. Bravo!!!
