I. Have. No. Words. Epic? Hot? Adventurous? This book…was almost the death of me. I finished it on Valentine’s Day and had to calm myself down since the third book isn’t out yet. I wanted to weep. Actually, I wanted to sob with snot running down my nose, but I had to put on my big girl panties for Valentine’s Day.
Title: Intuition (The Premonition #2)
Author: Amy A. Bartol
Summary (by Goodreads):
I don’t open my eyes so I can’t see him, but I can smell him. He thickens the air I breathe, choking me with his scent…his aroma. I shiver. I have to resist. If I’m not strong, then I will be relegated to the same fate as this predator whose sickness infects me even now. But now, I crave him and he knows that; he has been counting on my need to end the gnawing pain. How he would savor my surrender. I’m alive, but how much longer will it take until I beg him not to be?
Ok, I don’t mean to be rude, but that summary really doesn’t do this book NEARLY the amount of justice it needs. I tore through this story with neck breaking speed. It’s got an adventure like none other, romance like none other, and some major quotability like none other. Last time I say “none other” that many times…sorry!
The book starts with Evie, Reed, Buns, and Zee headed out for a New Years Eve party that basically gets crashed by some crazy big Powers. Evie’s own evolution is continuing and with the help of Russell and Zee, she starts being trained to fight or to possibly defend herself. Not long after this, Evie finds out she and Russell are a magnet for the Divine and the Fallen and it puts not only her and Russell at risk, but also Buns, Brownie, Zee, and more importantly Reed. Evie’s need to keep them safe from harm, forces her into a decision to runaway with Russell to keep the rest of them from being hurt. *shakes head…what a girl thing to do!
We get a great story from her actions though and actually get a few chapters from Russell’s POV. Which, I was dreading the read…but thought “huh, it might be better than reading about Evie moping…” and read it with some gumption. It turned out to be good…like really good. It makes me feel for Russell to the point I aaaaaaalmost changed from Team Reed…I said almost.
The romance is so good. Like GOOD good. It made my heart happy and left me doing a happy dance in my chair.
After finishing the book…I soon ended up with a feeling like depression…this feeling was because I realized I had worked myself into a frenzy for the third book…which wasn’t out yet.
Where’s the third book? *stares into camera* Amy, it’s your fault if I gain 50 pounds from eating this many Doritos…
I digress…To keep with the good feelings…one of my favorite funny quotes from the book:
“I don’t know what just happened, Reed, but I can tell you, that if she touches you one more time, she’s going to wind up with a fork sticking out of her.”
and then of course,
“Well, he had to tell you what kind of warrior he is. You know…’I will eviscerate your enemies and sear them in the fires of agony’ blah, blah, blah, – ‘if they dare speak your name I will cute out their tongues’ blah, blah, blah’…”
I smile just reading that! I seriously love this twisted family!
PS: Amy, I know you may not read this, but *on my knees* I would love to get an ARC of Indebted and *waves hand dismissively* …then we can just forget about that Doritos comment…
