pooled ink Review: QUANTA is a sci-fi romance (emphasis on romance) geared perhaps towards an older YA Fiction audience but definitely written for a wider/older audience than just teens (as it does contain some adult language, themes, and content). It’s the second book in the Shadow Ravens Trilogy but while it is a continuation of the story it’s also somewhat of a standalone by shifting the focus onto a different set of characters. The world was interesting, dystopian, futuristic, and unbelievably fast-paced with the intrigue and action spring forward from page one. QUANTA is a jolted adrenaline-paced story of a cold, futuristic, dystopian, science-dominated world with a bit of spicy paranormal and sweet romance to flavor it up into a successful second installment of the Shadow Ravens Trilogy.

Quanta is book two in The Shadow Ravens series. Our leading lady is Quanta, a Red Helix, a person with powers that according to the government shouldn't be alive. She's been imprisoned for years by them, and is constantly getting tested in attempts to duplicate her abilities. You see, Quanta is able to see into the future, including all of the possible outcomes that comes with free will. To keep herself alive she's feeding the Seligo as little information as possible so she's deemed still useful to their cause. What they're currently using Quanta for is to hunt down the other Reds, and anyone that is part of the Shadow Ravens. The Shadow Ravens are a rebel group that is determined to overthrow the Seligo government. Altair (aka Tair) Orpheus is a scientist that happens to secretly be a member of the Shadow Ravens. He's welcomed into the fold and assigned to Quanta. His Shadow Raven's mission is to play the part and figure out how to save Quanta. What neither he nor Quanta expected was the growing relationship that forms between them in such a dire situation. With no privacy, and a crazy guard dog of a scientist after Quanta I didn't see how they would be able to escape unscathed. Quanta is a fast paced, engaging read that I couldn't put down. My favorite character was Quanta, she somehow kept herself sane with that power and being imprisoned. She knew what buttons to push to get her way depending on who was in the room, which I found entertaining. She's a strong character, that I can't wait to see more of in the future. All in all I really enjoyed Quanta, and suggest the series if you're looking for a bit of sci fi + romance.

RATING 4.5 STARS Quanta is book two in the Shadow Ravens series by Lola Dodge and Aileen Erin. This book was generously provided to me in exchange for an honest review by NetGalley, Inscribe Digital and by the authors. This book was one crazy ride. Altair Orpheus is the son of a prominent Senator who has high aspirations for his son. At a young age, though, Altair, or Tair, became disillusioned with his life. He lives in a society that your status is determined by the tattoo you wear. There is a secret rebel society of Shadow Ravens, only obvious to fellow Shadow Ravens by the raven tattoo on their wrist. Tair has been leading a double life, secretly a member of the Shadow Ravens but leading the life of a privileged Senator’s son in order to get and pass along important information. Quanta wears a Red Helix tattoo. All ‘Reds’ are considered dangerous, they have special powers difficult to control. They are usually just murdered. Quanta’s gift, though, is that she is a seer. She can either look back or to the future. She has been held for ten long years in the labs under the Senate building, studied, experimented on, and used for her sight. Most on the outside believed that she was dead. I want to take a moment here to pause and say how awesome and strong Quanta is. I believe she is about twenty by now. Did she ever break or give in to what she was subjected to? No! She remained strong and manipulated things to the best of her ability to keep those on the outside safe. This young woman amazed me to no end with her strength and resilience. “The Seligo had tried to strip her bare, but at her core, Quanta was still Quanta, and she hadn’t been broken by her past.” When Tair is asked by the head scientist, Dr. Nagi, to assist him with a top secret experiment, he thinks this is the perfect opportunity to finally get into the inner workings to get more information for the Ravens. But he had no idea that his life was about to change forever. As soon as he laid eyes on Quanta, he knew his life was no longer his own. Tair knew he had to try to get Quanta out, but with layers upon layers of security, and Quanta was observed every minute of every day through cameras and two way mirrors. How could they ever escape? As Tair and Quanta spend time together, they realize their bond is not a normal one. All Quanta has to do is touch Tair and she feels calmer. The images constantly playing through her head quiet. Along with this bond come abilities Quanta didn’t realize she possessed. Abilities that might be helpful in their escape. This book was a crazy ride and kept me on edge right up to the very end. There isn’t really a cliff hanger but there is still much to be resolved. We also get to know Tair’s sister, Cassie, and I loved her. I’m hoping in the next book we get to find out more about her. There is quite a wait for the next book in this series, Quanta Reset, which will be a continuation of Tair and Quanta’s story. I think you could enjoy this book even if you haven’t read the first one, but the characters of the first book do re-appear in this one. The first book in the series, though, Cipher, is also amazing so you really don’t want to miss it. So start at the beginning, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
