The Hunted #2 Crystal Fire

A gorgeous conclusion... Presenting The Hunted #2 Crystal Fire by Jordan Dane.

Here is the summary of the book:

Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

A storm is brewing on the streets of LA, one that has intensified since a tragic and deadly confrontation claimed an innocent life.

While Gabriel Stewart trains his army of teen psychics to stop Alexander Reese--the obsessed leader of the Believers--the fanatical church becomes more bent on the annihilation of all Indigo and Crystal children. They're silencing the voices of the telepathic hive, one soul at a time, with frightening experiments cruelly executed on vulnerable minds.

When the Believers torture a mysterious homeless boy, Oliver Blue, they brainwash him into betraying his own. The boy becomes a deadly pawn to take Gabriel down. As the fires of chaos burn around him, Gabe is running out of time. He'll need to confront his past--and the man who made him--before the hope of peace for the future is silenced forever.

'Indigo Awakening' awed me with its brilliance of a genetically advanced species, the next step in human evolution. Exhibiting almost X-men like powers. And it does share a likeness to the CW show 'The Tomorrow People' (I don't know much about the original story). So you can guarantee it is as awesome as that one is and 'Crystal Fire' delivers it.

Things are coming at a headway. With the addition of new characters and the return of the old, all the pieces are finally adding up. The dominos are finally lining up and ready to be toppled over. And the epic fight is just enough to send you to the edge of the your seats with excitable anticipation of the coming events.

Rayne and Gabriel...... Oh I loved her alright. She was the only one non-Indigo among the troop but that didn't do anything to hammer her down. Instead she compensates for it and learns to defend herself instead of staying behind the lines. Gabriel..... Ohhhhh *swoons* my list of book boyfriends sure keep growing every day. One of the crystal child among them and the leader. He exudes charisma, a sense of loyalty and his desire to help every Indigo or crystal child out there is sure to win hearts.

Rayne and Gabriel's chemistry sure was sizzling. Thank God for small mercies I liked the fact that there were no triangles anywhere in this book. And these two not only establish their importance with one another but also grow stronger together throughout the events of the book, in a blissfully and romantically happy sort of way.... *squeal*

With Kendra and Rafe. Much like Rayne and Gabe, these two too cement their presence throughout the book. All the while training for the concluding battle and finding out about their past.

It is now turn to talk about Lucas and the two new characters Oliver and Caila and the good Dr. Fiona. Lucas little by little finds his purpose and trains, he knows he is important and this time around her soon realizes he needs to fight for his own rights if he needs to survive. The new characters Oliver and Caila..... well I have nothing more to say but that I felt sorry for them. For having gone through what they do at the hands of the believers and the doctor, they surprisingly remain resilient and fight for the right side when the time comes for them to. But most of all I liked what they did to Dr. Fiona, for the atrocities she committed towards innocent children in the name of science.... well she deserved what she got.

Jordan Dane definitely did not disappoint. While I do not like two book series I loved how things progressed in Crystal Fire. in the way every loose end ties up and every character gets to play a role...... And those supernatural powers of their's ..... well suffice it to say this is one exciting book you don't wanna miss out on.
