Olivia Black is headed to Indiana with Marcus and the team (and oddly Passion) to rescue the next name on the list of kids with PSS – Samantha James. Only there’s a problem, Sam belongs to a cult of PSS worshippers and has no wish to be rescued. Olivia and Passion must go undercover at Sam’s school to try to get closer to Sam and her inner circle. They then go on a wild ride with the cult, secret ceremonies, lies, deception, and betrayal.

Another great read with a fast-moving plot and lots of action. The different manifestations of PSS are fascinating – I never would have guessed the blood one. I liked finding out more about Passion, she’s an interesting character once her protective shields are dropped. Marcus really annoyed me with his keep-truths-from-Olivia attitude. I liked when she got sick of it and dumped him but refusing to leave the river at the end – show some self-preservation! Sam’s informing to her dad about those with PSS was a bit creepy – her telling him everything. About that anyway.

Some very interesting revelations happened – about Kaylee, one of the names on the list and who gave the team a warning. It had a very dramatic ending on a cliff-hanger and I can’t wait to read the next and find out what happens and how Olivia rescues herself.

I NEED #3!!!
