“Emily Webb thought life would return to normal after the death of the man who attacked her and her fellow “Deviants.” Or as normal as it could be, after discovering that she has nighttime superpowers . . . and she’s a werewolf. But when Emily awakes one night to find an otherworldy Shadowman watching her, she knows the danger has only just begun.
So Emily and her pack-mates set out to find the people who made them what they are, and why. But as they get closer to the truth, they realize they aren’t the only ones in town with special powers: The most popular girls in school might just have a secret of their own–and they might just have it out for Emily.
With shadowy beings stalking them, a mysterious company doing all it can to keep the truth hidden, and the secrecy of her new identity in jeopardy, life threatens to spiral out of control for Emily. Soon these dangers will come together in one terrifying confrontation that may force her to make the toughest choice of her life . . . so far.”
Since I really loved the first book, I couldn’t wait for this one. The one thing that hooked me on the series is the plot line. I loved being thrown into something new and unwritten! This book picks up for the first book left off and the reader is once again thrown in the mist of deviants.
What I loved about this book is the plot line. The deviants defeated the enemy once, but still have much to learn about. They are learning their powers, learning about the past, and discovering others out there like them. I really loved how well they took charge of their future. They ask questions and broke into computers.
The characters of this book you can tell have grown so much. I like that they are no longer naive but stronger. They rely on one another. During all the fights and trouble, they stuck by each other sides and were there to back each other up.
The love interest for me, felt a little wonky. At first, I thought I knew who would end up with who, but with all of the experiments done on them it’s hard to separate their feelings. So in a sense I get it. Still, I was hoping for a more set relationship.
Overall, I like it. It was quick, easy, fun read. Havoc is ultimately entertaining, exciting, and stylish with great direction that will satisfy any reader.
I give it 4 BITES!
