This is book two in the Solum Series from Colleen S. Myers. I would highly recommend that you read the first book in the series, “Must Remember” before you dive into this one. There is a lot of detail in that book and it really sets you up for this one. As well as being a continuation from the first.
I have to say this one sort of bothered me. I had trouble liking/ connecting to Elizabeth (Beta). I found myself hollering at her in my mom voice a several times while reading the book. She really just needed to stop being so darn stubborn. I get why a character having these flaws sets up the way for future story lines but this one was just a bit too much. I don’t know maybe it was me, but that would have been the only reason for me why I knocked off a star. Everything else was engaging and interesting. I enjoyed the way Myers can build a fantastic world you can escape into. Her stories are fast paced and you often feel as if they are over before you barely have begun.
Like I said before this does pick up from the first book. Elizabeth, or Beta found herself in a whole new world from her typical college student life in that one. Now in an alien world she is also in the middle of a love triangle. (Those area always fun!) This one we discover more about her relationship with Marin. I did enjoy that aspect a lot, and Marin personally.
The E’mani is also still around and that means danger of course. This is where her stubbornness with come in to play and she will get herself in some trouble. She is also forced to make the decision to forget her past and embrace the future. Can she do this? I am looking forward to seeing what will come next in the Solum series.
