Book Review: Stunned

Summary: Roya desperately wishes she was above ground, on a sunny patio, watching the lake lap up on the shore. Instead, she finds herself trapped with the Lucidites. Her brother is mysteriously wasting away, and at every turn she finds a new betrayal. Just when she thinks she’s finally escaping the Institute, a new danger unveils itself. A secret society of Dream Travelers has declared war on the Lucidites by abducting a head official. It’s up to Roya to figure out who’s behind it and how to save everyone she cares about most. More action packed than its predecessor, Stunned is captivating and will leave audiences squirming from the tension and also begging for more.

Thoughts: This was an amazing sequel! If the action was great in the first book it was even better in the second! And the villains were chilling, actually developed and cunning beings who moved with their own vendettas. It was great!
 And then, of course, the plot. Progressing, unraveling, and winding yet again, weaving through a fantastic tale!
 The characters moved forward as well, casting off old fears, developing new ones but also taking on strength in the face of greater adversary! I especially loved the way Roya stepped up during the climax (though that's all I'm going to mention, you'll have to read it if you want to know).
The love definitely still there and it's every bit as painful and confusing as you'd imagine but I am very eager to see how it will turn out.
And I'm just going to repeat myself here but, I really loved the villains in here! No, they were not likable at all, but they were villainous which is exactly what this sequel needed!

Content: Ok, unfortunately this one steps up from the first. It starts with some passionate kissing, then there are hands kind of going all over. One of the guys ends up in bed with the girl though both remain fully clothed. Also aside from the previous couple, another character admits to being homosexual. And the language is similar to the others, including things like D*** and C**p even a few F***'s. So, definitely  not for kids. Teens and mature audiences with a love for adventure will still love it though!
