Winter Omens is beautifully written. The imagery is breathtaking and you feel as though you're seeing the world for the first time just as Althea is. There is some hilarity in Althea's awkwardness around being noticed after having tried to be invisible for so long. Omens was a great follow up and I'm hoping for the best for Althea and her fight to survive.

This second story has certainly lived up to the first book. Starts out fast and continues throughout. I care about the chacters and what happens to them. I am looking forward to the third book.

Why can't I find the first book in the series on here? Id like to read this book but kind of need to start at the beginning of the series :-/

This heart-pounding sequel to Whispers in Autumn raises the stakes and deepens the characters in a way that keeps you flipping the pages. I loved the glimpse of a post-apocalyptic world that we get to see in this one, and how Althea responds to it. I didn't think the author could top the first one, I loved it that much, but she did and then some.

This sophomore book doesn't disappoint with the introduction of a new Dissident. The writing it gorgeous and the story fast paced. Winter Omens promises a series readers won't soon forget.

Winter Omens picks up where the first book in the series, Whispers in Autumn leaves off. Althea finds herself alone again after she and Lucas are separated when they are forced to travel to avoid being taken prisoner by the Others. The loneliness seems worse than in the beginning for Althea, threatening to consume her, because she doesn't know how to find Lucas. Knowing she cannot stay in the city, she makes her way to the wilds again, just trying to survive the harsh winter and figure out what to do next and how to find this boy she is coming to love. She finds help in the form of a wolf/dog who becomes in her best friend. When a boy suddenly appears, she notices he seems like her. The boy, Pax, immediately recognizes Althea as being different and wastes no time calling her out on it and revealing what he is. He is a loner, and doesn't plan on sticking around, yet Althea finds herself drawn to him. He is completely different that Lucas and the chemistry between the two is very strong, which makes things difficult for Althea because finds herself caring deeply for both of these boys. The Others are still in hot pursuit of Althea, Pax, and Lucas. As the mind control and the intrusions of the Others heightens, Pax and Althea find themselves in several intense situations.......sometimes the intense situations are just because they find themselves together. The situation worsens, capture is imminent, torture, betrayal, and heartache bombard them, and the strongest emotion of all, love, will have to save them all. This was a great second book in this series. There was quite a bit more action in this book as Pax and Althea were constantly in danger and being pursued. We also meet some new characters in this book. I enjoyed getting to know Pax in this book, though I did miss Lucas' presence in the majority of the book. Pax has the whole bad boy that every girl loves thing going on. The romance intensifies in this book and a love triangle of sorts is formed. I am interested to see what that develops into, and though I love Pax, I am still loyal to Lucas at this point. Althea really steps up and becomes quite a kick-butt heroine. We also get to see into the inner workings of the mind of the Others in this novel and just how cruel they can be. Loyalties are tested and emotions run high in this novel. The book crescendos on an intense note with these friends barely escaping with their lives. One of them may not make it. As these three dissidents, Althea, Lucas, and Pax, Summer, Winter, and Autumn try to survive, they must find and rescue the missing link, Deshi, who is Spring. I am anxious to see where the journey takes these three next, to find out if they all survive, and to see how their relationships progress. This was another intriguing installment in this series. If you are a fan of dystopia, science fiction, fantasy and romance, you will find all these elements combined in this series.
