Release Date: 03/03/15
Entangled Teen
Summary from Goodreads:
Tormented after a daring escape, Cora Sandoval must find a way to stop the Arrazi from murdering innocent people and from violating, using, and killing the Scintilla for their powers. She must also accept one bitter betrayal: Finn Doyle—the Irish boy who has both a piece of Cora's heart and soul—is Arrazi...
On the verge of extinction and sought by those who would either consume or destroy them,  Cora and the remaining Scintilla survivors must solve the mystery of The Light Key. If they fail, the truth will stay buried forever and mankind will pay the ultimate price.
No longer will she hide.
No longer will her loved ones be hunted.

And she will have her vengeance...even if she shatters her heart in the process.

I can say that I enjoyed reading this sequel than the first book although I find the pacing a bit slow despite the alternate point of views but that is one of the reasons that makes the book an interesting read.  It was kind of a downer reading this book because of what Cora was experiencing (and the others as well especially Finn), more like heartbreaking. 

The history background was interesting and it was good to finally found out somethings that weren't mentioned from the last book but I probably got a little overload with the information despite how the author made it want to seem more interesting. Still it was very interesting. The concept was unique.

One think I also like about this book is that you could feel the emotions of the characters as it is your own especially their struggles. Cora's character made a great improvement than the last one although I wish she did more.

Despite how the author portrayed Giovanni and getting to like him, I'm more on team Finn all the way. Even if Finn did not make a really good/wish decision although you'll get to understand his reasons but still... I am not or will ever be a fan of love triangles or quadrangles or whatever exist today in these kind of romance themes (but there are a few of exceptions *wags eyebrows*)  I don't like it when there has to be another person in the story when there should be no need for  it. 

Well, even if I mentioned that, I can't help but read it. I can't wait for the last book in the series. But I need more Finn and Cora.
