New Review! Ballistic by Aria Michaels, 4.5 Cranky Stars

Ballistic (Icarus #2)Ballistic by Aria Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

**** 4.5 Cranky Stars ****

No time was lost between Killshot and Ballistic. The journey carried on for these unfortunate Icarus survivors.

Liv along with her friends carried on their quest to find their lost family as well as the answers to the mystery of the virus woken up by Icarus. For Liv however, it’s all because of Beans.

We finally meet the famous Beans and boy, he’s such a great young man. I say: man because the tragedy brought by the solar flare to his young life forced him to grow up. Like his sister, Lucas is a natural born leader and in his own way, he fought hard to protect the ones he loved. And for one so young, he is so wise.

Liv on the other hand is growing more powerful...and deadly. Self-doubt started creeping into her mind if she was still capable of protecting her friends or if they needed protection from her.

Like the first book, this one is action-packed and full of surprises.

One thing I would have like to have seen developed was the author’s ability to control the crowd better. More and more people were introduced, great characters who added their own special flair to the story. However, there were a few parts in the book were people got lost when different characters took over the “scene”. I know creating poignant moment in the story is essential but during those times, a few of the major characters were just left hanging with no lines, so to speak.

Still, I was glued to my eBook reader, desperate to find out what would become of Liv and her friends. We get reunited with a character from book 1 and a pleasant surprise made my heart skip a beat. And I wasn’t talking about Liv and Zander who were still going strong.

The finale was nothing short of explosive with a satisfying conclusion to book 2’s mission.

I would highly recommend this series to everyone even if the sky is falling.
