    One thought on “The Retreat”

    1. Excellent follow up to Book one. The characters really come alive. It was like revisiting with an old friend. I am really enjoying Olivia and her friends. The new book adds some new characters that are very likable. Great read. Don't want to give anything away, but I can't wait for book 3!

    2. Alana Siegel you are truly evil to end this book in such a mannerOlivia Hart is even more uncomfortable in this book than the first one, but she starts to come into herself all the more in this book. She (and the reader) begins to learn the answers to questions about the Gifted left in the first book. I really enjoyed the revelation of the mythology, although I would have preferred a little more action earlier in the book. I had some definite issues with the pacing in this novel that I didn't se [...]

    3. Not quite sure what to think about that ending right now HmmmI did like learning more about Gifted backgrounds, but there seems to be something that isn't sitting right with me. I'm still trying to figure out if it's meant that way, and will be un-weirded in future books, or if it's just me.I will continue the series, as I can, although I'm reaching a point where I am ready to bring the smack-down on Olivia.

    4. Love, love, loved this book!! Such a great follow up to The Charm. Really enjoyed finding out more of Justin's story too. Can NOT wait for The Rescue!! :)
