Rosamund Brandt knows she’s an heir, but an heir to what? So far, the only thing she seems to have inherited are powers she can’t control and flashes of what seem like memories–memories that belong to someone else.
Tensions grow as secrets within her family multiply and a new creature who can dissolve into shadow stalks her. But out of the chaos also emerge new friends–one who may know more about what Rosamund’s inherited than she does.
As the memories become clearer, Rosamund pieces together what she needs to do to get control of her life again. And she needs to before her powers consume her–and everyone else.

*This book was received via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review* This was a really good continuation of the series with a fast paced plot, interesting new characters and our old favourites. I really enjoyed learning some of the answers to questions posed in the first book and the author kept a good balance of mysteries and revelations in order to keep me interested and reading. Although many questions and mysteries were solved even more were uncovered. I can't wait to learn the answers in the next installment of the series. The author intended for Xavier to become suspicious, however I feel like he will play a big part in the next book as said in the book the quietest ones are often the ones to watch. I think this is even applicable to real life hence the term the 'dark horse'. I started to dislike Bryce in this book and am glad that no romance developed between him and Rosamund, however I really hope in the next book her and Ryder will get together, especially since they are both part alien and have awesome abilities. Just imagine what powers their children could have. I really enjoyed reading about Rosamund's unfolding powers and the reappearance of her father along with Earth Patrol. The multiple ominous warnings of an epic showdown looming on the horizon, that Rosamund will be the centre of, have left me hopeful that the next book will see most of the mysteries unraveled. I can't wait to read more about these world/s in the next installment, especially with the interesting descriptions provided about Rosamund's Mum's home planet. I recommend this book and series to anyone who likes a good mystery read with a twist of the paranormal and a splash of romance (sorta. There's no actual kissing just tension).
Enjoyed #2 and looking forward to third book
