As their story continues, Calvin and Caledonia find themselves madly in love, on the run, and nearly out of money. When Cal stumbles upon a way to cash in on Cali’s powers, their life on the road becomes a life of leisure. Despite the easy money and newfound luxury, Caledonia’s conscience begins to trouble her.

A disturbing warning only serves to confirm her misgivings, making her question her purpose in life. Finally, a shocking discovery about the true nature of her powers points the way forward, sending the two Cals on a dangerous rescue mission.

Caledonia tries her best to right the wrongs of the past, but will she only end up provoking new and even more dangerous enemies?

My Review: Okay so I am excited to be working with Derrolyn once again on an awesome book.

So  the story continues to follow Cali and her boyfriend Cal.  They are living in a world where people want Cali for her aura reading powers, but lets face it; when do the bad guys really get what they want? Not long after getting away from someone who wanted her powers, they run into another problem. Money. Yes they are running low and must figure out what to do about it. So Cali will use her powers that will create a way for them to get money.  What is dangerous, is that Cali needs to help the people who are like her. The twins she meet while with the professor are just like her, only problem they aren't there anymore. They have been sent to someone more powerful and dangerous. One thing I loved about the the book is the love Cal and Cali have for each other and that it stayed constant through the story was lovely. For some reason the love between people doesn't stay constant in alot of books and that can be boring.  I like a good lovey dovey story, but I did notice he got a bit clingy which isn't the best for a guy to do. Any way, Michael and Layla were pretty cool people to meet in the first book, now they get a bigger part of the book, where you learn and love them even more.  Layla is a funny girl, instead of being worried about being taken by an evil person, she is worried about shopping. You know what, I probably would do the same thing...I love my shopping. Michael is a tricky fellow, first it wasn't easy for me to like him, then as the story went on it got easier and I enjoyed him. Though the bond with his sister is rather blah. Not seeing to much of a bond, but I guess not everyone needs some kind of bond. 

As for the ending of the story is was filled with everything a reader could want! The best edge of the seat read so far this year, not if only the next book where in my hands..
