    This is the sequel to the first book, The Chosen and this is where Kaia, our heroine, continues her journey to fulfill her duty after she disappeared for 5 years. A lot of things have changed, especially with the “Numbers” program that tracks down demigods. Even though this is the second book, it can be read as a standalone since some of the important events in the first book was explained here as well, so the readers won’t be confused with the story.
    Ms. Freitas was kind enough to give me a paperback copy of the book (Thank you so much!) and I can say that she really improved a lot in terms of writing, compared to her first book. Once again, we enter the world wherein gods, demigods, mermaids, vampires, and other mythical creatures co-exist. Kaia has grown a lot in this book, and she’s not the naïve girl we know in the first book. There are a lot of actions here, although there were parts that were boring because of the long conversations and travelling. :D And there are also a lot of minor characters that I lost track of who’s who.
    There’s also a hint of love in this one as well, and I’m definitely rooting for Kaia and Reeze! (Oh please let them be together!) And I’m still a bit confused with Derek’s feelings for Catrina because at times he seemed so worried and overprotective of her and I wonder if he even sees her as more than a friend. I don’t know yet, but hopefully the third book will explain more of it (and more Kaia and Reeze please!)
    The ending was such a cliffhanger, only making me wonder what will happen in the next book. I’m really working forward for the 3rd installment, and hopefully it will be better than the first 2!

    In this sequel to The Chosen, Kaia returns after a five year disappearance. While she was gone the Tueors’ leader has created a “Numbers” system which will track and isolate demigods like Kaia’s friend and guide, Catrina. Kaia is ready to fulfill her duty to find and protect the treasures of the gods. Before she begins, Kaia finds her companions first Catrina – who would not submit to the number system – and Derek, now a married prince of the merfolk, and Reeze – who has been monitoring the Tueors from within their ranks. The day of the dire prophesy is approaching, so Kaia and her friends must succeed in her mission.
    The adventure and fantasy of the writing quickly (by chapter 3) pulls the reader into worlds of merfolk and vampires. Since I hadn’t read the first book in the series, I may be missing pieces of the characters and their relationships, but I found some of the dialogue and description to be rather unexciting…considering the thrilling adventures in the plot. It’s good writing, but it’s difficult to connect to the characters, especially Kaia. The instances when Kaia seems to be most interesting are when she is expressing her thoughts, talking to her inner voice.
    The author’s creation of fantasy worlds is appealing; the mission is exciting. Middle schoolers and young teens might really enjoy reading this series of mystical adventures.
