Evie doesn't open her eyes so she can't see him, but she can smell him. He thickens the air she breathes, choking her with his scent . . . his aroma. She shivers. She has to resist.

Overview

Evie doesn't open her eyes so she can't see him, but she can smell him. He thickens the air she breathes, choking her with his scent . . . his aroma. She shivers. She has to resist. If she's not strong, then she will be relegated to the same fate as this predator whose sickness infects her even now. But now, she craves him and he knows that; he has been counting on her need to end the gnawing pain. How he would savor her surrender. She's alive, but how much longer will it take until she begs him not to be?

Review by SlicedOpenReviews(dot)com Love this story, I love this series, more than that, I love Amy A. Bartol. I fell in love after INESCAPABLE and now I can’t stop! INTUITION, the 2nd book in THE PREMONITION series, sets right out where INESCAPABLE left our wonderful Evie; in the lovely arms of Reed. I started reading this right after finishing the first book, so for me it was great to run from one to the next and continue in the story. As always, I had my reservations regarding how this book would size up being a “mid-series” but Amy A. Bartol did not falter in her skills and gave us another heaping helping of action! Bartol dished out an impeccable amount of suspense with this book, keeping me constantly guessing AND on the edge of my seat, equaling one excellent read! But, with all good, there must be some bad. I don’t really want to say “bad” rather things I could have done without: First, alternating POVs particularly the POV of Russell, while for the most part I enjoy all of the characters in this series, I was a bit slower to connect to this portion of the book, and frankly I got a little frustrated. In the end I never gave up, I pushed through and I am super happy I did. Second, the love-triangle-ish aspect (yes, pertaining to our fair Russell again, sorry) it’s not so much that there was a “triangle”, just too much Evie/Russell drama. Lastly, the Gancanagh’s dialect; I totally get it and it is totally necessary to stay that close to a characters background. Though I’m not going to lie, I struggled a bit getting though some of the heavier conversations including them. This is due to the fact that I had to read slow and re-read, a lot. None of these are deal breakers and in all honesty, I look past all of them and hate to mention them in fear that it will cause someone not to move forward and read the series. So, please take my word that it is worth any slight struggle with these things. I really just want to put them out there in all fairness of the review to keep my review true and honest! INTUITION for me just generally evokes strong feelings of anger and frustration…haha, yes I do feel those, but not in a bad way, it really pulls a lot of emotion out of me. I love the writing of the plot and character development. It shows the true skills that Amy A. Bartol puts into these books. I love to find an author, especially an indie author, who truly grips me the way Bartol does. She created one of the most stand-out female characters for me in the YA Paranormal genre. Evie kicks some serious butt in this book and is still able to maintain her girly persona; she’s deep yet light and easy to connect with for readers of any age. The plot(s) for this book where breathtaking! From the scenes with the Gancanagh to the scenes with the war council, Bartol was able to use her writing to build a vivid picture. In hopes of not spoiling too much, the war council to me was spectacular and I think it definitely ranks high in some of the most memorable reading moments for me. It took so much to intertwine new characters, a new setting and a conflict as flawlessly as Bartol did. Now, on to book three, I tried to wait for it to come out via Nook but I couldn’t hold out any longer so I ordered my paperback version! Can't wait for it to arrive!

The Premonition series is swiftly becoming one of my favorites. I love this world, the characters and the intrigue. Amy Bartol does a great job of keeping the reader guessing. In Intuition Evie and Reed have to face a new evil. I have to say that Brennus is one of my favorite villians ever. He is so dimensional that I find myself liking him and feeling guilty about it, lol. Just when I think he's not all that bad, he shows how evil he is. The idea behind all the creatures in this series is brilliant and fresh in my opinion. Great read and I'm spellbound by the books. Can't wait to read more. I just wish that all of the books in the series were out right now because I know I'm going to have a hard time waiting for the last three. Thank you Amy, for sharing your beautiful imagination with us!

Oh My God!! This amazing sequel to Inescapable is so heart wrenching! How many ways can my heart be torn apart. Amy did an amazing job of bringing these intense emotions to life. I felt like I was Evie, what she had to go through just tore me up. She was so strong, and I felt everything with her. In a way, I was glad some of the depression parts were then switched to Russel’s point of view, otherwise, It may have made me depressed with her even more. But, I really did not like being in his head so much. His slang talk got on my nerves, as it sounds like more of a hick town in Oklahoma than North Dakota,(or south, don’t remember), as I been to both places, and its not like in this book, hated that part, makes him sound so dumb. Anyway, he has remembered all his past lives now, since Evie saved him in the first book, so to me that should have matured him a lot, I mean, thousands of years worth of past lives memories should have made him grow up. But he still acted too immature to me. Yeah, I know he is her soul mate, the part that is her soul, but the angel part of Evie is stronger, is its pull to Reed is undeniable. In angel ways, he is her; well let’s call it Angel-Mate, that makes sense to me. Anyway, the thoughts of him not giving up, and how to get her to choose him were a little on the immature side. But as it went on it got better, and I really started to like Russel. He does love her and only wants to protect her. He is a hero in this book. He does not do what Evie had asked of him, if something happens to her, he is to run, and not look for her. Of course that does not happen when she is kidnapped by the Gancanagh, (faeries who were turned into vampire type creatures). So a little summary overall for you. This book starts with these amazing characters trying to survive and find some happiness, even though they are in constant danger, and are being hunted basically. Alfred is still out there plotting a way to get her, so he can get her soul. They also still need to keep Evie hidden from the other angels who won’t understand who and what she is, and not know if she is a threat or not. Reed tries to give Evie some precious time just being together and a little vacation with Reed, Buns, and Zee, and then an attack happens, and it threatens her precious family. (Russel was with Brownie spending some time with his family before he has to go into hiding, since he is now going to be hunted, if you read book one, you know why) So after the attack, and they are able to get away, she makes one of the hardest decisions ever, she decided to leave with Russel to try and keep Reed and the rest out of danger. She overhears a conversation, on how if the Dominion (rulers of a sorts of the Powers angels) will hunt down anyone helping or protecting Evie. She thinks she will be saving them, by being gone. It’s the hardest thing she ever does, and it breaks her heart. So to top it off, not only does she have this extreme agony of leaving her one true love behind wasn’t enough, suddenly Evie is taken by the Gancanaugh, and Brennus who is the leader claims her as his own, and will stop at nothing to change her into one of them, to be his queen. Brennus breaks her and forces her to become someone she doesn’t recognize. Will she be able to escape before she becomes one of them herself? Will she ever see Reed and her friends again? Yeah, good questions, and you need to read to find out. I will not say more at this point, you need to go experien

This book had a little of a slower start to me than Inescapable. I also never realized how anoying Russell's twang was until I had to read a portion of the book in his perspective. Reed got on my nerves a time or two with his counting of the minutes Evie slept. It's kind of romantic, but really kind of annoying and . . .well . . . creepy. I didn't have to wait long, however, for things to pick back up. In this story, Evie is in the process of evolving and developes some pretty mad skills. We get to see Russell start to evolve as well. Evie soon learns that there are more than the fallen and the divine to worry about. Soon every line she has made for fantasy and reality becomes blurred and anything is possible. By the end of this story I was crying out for more. Can't wait to read the third installment.

Ok, I'm still Team Reed but I'm not gonna lie, I'm kinda falling for Finn and Brennus. I think I have a weakness for men with accents. I love how the author wrote in a southern and an Irish accent. The story just keeps getting better. LOVE IT!

I don't usually like self published authors because the editing can be so bad. I know I'm horrible at grammar and spelling myself. However, I don't like to pay for and read something that contains those kinds of errors. That is totally not the case this this series. Plus, the story is awesome! I can't wait to read everything this author publishes!

One of the best series I have ever read.
JoannaDursi More than 1 year ago
The big difference in this book is that it's told from both Evie and Russell's POV's. I liked Russell's POV and it definitely made certain scenes more powerful. Evie struggles to heal both physically and emotionally. Tough decisions take her away from Crestwood. While away we are introduced to a new character that will make a significant impact on her life. During this time she proves to be such a strong and powerful woman. This series continues to pack a punch with so many twists and turns. - “What did you say?”…”I was telling you that I have waited for you to come to me for an eternity. You set me free and I would wait for you forever because there is nothing about you that I would change… you’re perfect.”

I wasn't sure about this series when I began the first book. The middle kept me reading, but I still wasn't positive. By the end though, I wanted to see where it was headed. Curious, I began this book, the second one in the series. I have to say that I so enjoyed the story that I bought and read all subsequent ones, and am now eagerly awaiting the final book! No, it isn't rocket science, but it is a good story with interesting characters. Some of the plot "twists" are rather expected, and at times even a bit redundant, but all in all it is a fun, fast, intriguing and enjoyable read. I would go so far as to say that some of it is even thought provoking. Souls, heaven, demons, angels, this series has some interesting concepts. However, concepts or not, this book is enjoyable and it moves much smoother and faster than the first one. It is not the "kids" book I thought it may be. I am anxious to see how it ends and hope that final book comes out soon!
