Equilibrium is much more serious than Portal in my opinion, but it fits the role of the book well! Imogen out did herself on this one.

Arizona and Kellan are kidnapped while down at the lake watching the stars. When they wake up neither of them can move and they don't know where they are or why they are there. Turns out they are in a very dark, very smelly cement room... but they can't figure a way out of it, and on top of things... they were drugged and can't function well.

A door in the room opens and a blinding ray of light comes in, with no warning someone is dragging Arizona towards the light and away from Kellan. Where are they taking her and why?

That's all Arizona can remember when she wakes up in a house that she definitely recognizes... but not where she has been living. She hears a voice beckoning her to get up and get ready for school... who is that? Is that her DAD? Arizona has woke up in her bed, back in the dimension where she lives with her dad and she is a rough and tumble hockey player. But she doesn't see in the mirror what she expected.... she woke up Barbie Arizona.

Arizona doesn't know how she got here, but she does know that she wants to get back to her life as Arizona Daley and be with Kellan, her siblings and her mother. How is she going to get back, when she has no idea how she got here to begin with?

Equilibrium is full of suspense! Which I thought really made the book. Arizona finds that she has adapted to her life as Arizona Darley a bit better than she had originally thought. I also love the reactions of all her friends in her life as Arizona Stevens, when they see her with blonde hair! Its priceless! I also like how the relationship between Kellan and Arizona is progressing. We also find out a secret about David, which I was shocked at, but loved every minute! This book is a page turner... I had to finish it one sitting!... I just couldn't help myself! Yet another great read from Imogen Rose!

Look for Quantum, which is the sequel to Equilibrium. Out Now!

Show some girl power!

Ugh...I love time travel. That part was fairly interesting, especially the concept of the wanderes. But it's surprising the main character can walk on her own because the author is constantly referring to her "throwing herself" into her boyfriend's arms, sitting on hi...
Ugh...I love time travel. That part was fairly interesting, especially the concept of the wanderes. But it's surprising the main character can walk on her own because the author is constantly referring to her "throwing herself" into her boyfriend's arms, sitting on his lap, cuddling, ad nauseum. Make her into a real young woman, able to function without a "man's strong arms."

    Good Story

    The second in the Portal series. A good book and it kept me interested. I think it is geared more towards teens and younger adults but any age enjoyes a good well written story.

    Entertaining, BUT

    I'm not gonna write a book report here, which many seem inclined to do. I'll simply give my opinion of the book/s.
    I've read the first 3 in the series, but am only giving my opinion on this one. I like Imogens writting style, she paints a good picture with only a few holes that is pretty emmersive and very easy to read.

    BUT, the editing is almost unbearably horrible, particularly in this book. The first is the best with only a few errors and the third is only slightly worse, but this book has at least 40 solid errors. Be they double words, bad grammar, syntax or (by far the worst) a change in phrasing that left an original word behind, resulting in a sentence that makes no sense until you re-read it and find the culprit word. Unfortunately there is a constant barrage at some point late in the book that makes it impossible to remain "engaged" by the story. It's a pity really, because the writting is decent, but this level of editing failure would be unacceptable from an 8th grader.

    Will I read the fourth book? Yes, but only because I have to know how it all ends. *I really hope it ends in the fourth book*
