What if your mind became your worst enemy?
Struggling with evolving psychic abilities, seventeen-year-old Anna Morgan and her equally exceptional friends are on the run from the ruthless Graham Cregg, leader of a covert operation known as the Delphi Project. Cregg has already killed repeatedly to test Anna’s ability. Now, he and his father, a presidential contender, will stop at nothing to recapture the Delphi adepts, whom they see as weapons to be controlled—or destroyed.
Navigating an increasingly hostile landscape, Anna and her friends form a resistance to rescue those still in the Creggs’ fatal grip. As more gifted kids vanish and public awareness of the Delphi Project grows, so does the opinion that getting rid of the adepts may be a necessary evil.
Yet even as they face off against cold-blooded killers, government operatives, and a public intensely afraid of their psychic powers, the greatest threat to Anna and the resistance may come from within themselves—and their own mysterious abilities could spell their ultimate downfall.

I received an ARC of this e-book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was long but in an oh so amazing way. I kept check how far I was only to find out I had a ton left and doing mental dances about it. The characters from the first book grow so much in this second book. New characters comes into play, with stories that make you feel. I shed a few tears, laughed with them, got angry with them. This journey with Anna, Deo, Aaron, and Taylor has been so much fun. I simply have enjoyed these books and the wait until the third book even if it was tomorrow would be too long. Sadly it will be a few months. What an amazing adventure this story is, one that I cannot wait to continue!
This certainly is a long book with almost 500 pages. But it did not feel long. The pages just flew by and I couldn't stop reading. I wanted, needed, to know what's going on, what would happen next. My anxiety reached high levels with Deo sick, Taylor not finding out the needed information. Aaron trying to hold his cool and Anna not having a second alone in her head. And I'm really not sure about Magda. It seems to good to be true that she would not have some ulterior motives. But of course I'm hoping that she is the real deal. For everybody's sake. All the kids, now facing an entire nations scared and misinformed. Poor things. And of course, there is poor Daniel, fading away not only in his hospital bed but also in Anna's head. 'til the end it was not clear if he would make it and when he delivered the final message in this book, it was like....No, no,no....I need the next book now! As usual Rysa Walker did an amazing job writing a captivating story, which will keep you on the edge of your seat and won't let you catch your breath 'til the very last page. Well done, and don't take too long for the next book. I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Skyscape and Two Lions!
