Ravenstoke (Universe Unbound #2)

Title: Ravenstoke
Author: Augusta Blythe
Published: December 4, 2011
Synopsis from Goodreads:

In Winterborne, Loie and Mia's seventeenth birthdays brought more drama and surprises than they ever expected. Now, in Ravenstoke, they are adjusting to the aftermath and struggling to keep those newfound powers in check. When Andreas is called away to England under mysterious circumstances, a new guy is sent to Salcey Ridge in his place. Cian is smarmy and cocksure and Loie wants nothing more than to unleash a hellhound on him. Unfortunately, Cian isn't the only complication in their lives as the girls must also contend with the reappearance of Mr. Winterborne himself and Loie's most dreaded fear of all - a part in the school musical. Can the girls survive the rest of junior year unscathed?

Loie and Mia are back! And this time this time they know exactly what's going on. Ever since Loie turned 17 she realized the truth. She was switched at birth and her father is a Universal. A race more "super" than humans and living in another dimension.

I was kind of thinking of Thor's Asgard here but turns out they live in Smurf houses lolz.

Andreas is back and still training Loie to tap into her inner Universal. Teaching her how to control her powers and train like the "Super" champ she is.

That is... until he gets called off to England.

He can't tell Loie and Mia why but something smells fishy.

In his place a boy named Cian comes to train Loie. With his help she is able to delve deeper into her new powers. Cian isn't letting Loie hold back and Loie doesn't want him to.

Spring Break is on the way and that means Class trips. Somehow they need to get to England to figure out what's going on with Andreas. In a way that is truely Mia-esq, she snags them a trip to London with only one little setback... it's with the Drama Club.

But what's in England? Is Andreas ok? Is there something afoot? What about Cian? Where did he go?

In this sequel to "Winterborne" a lot of questions are answered. A past in unraveled. And the truth is coming together like a puzzle.

An awesome follow-up novel.

I must admit that while I wasn't a big fan of "Winterborne", this novel impressed me. The growth of her characters is astounding and her skills as a writer has greatly improved.

Pick this one up if you like adventure and romance. You won't be disappointed!
