Unnautral Law: Darwin's Children Book 2
by Natasha Larry
ebook: $2.99 Synopsis:
Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner’s psychokinetic power surge is over, and her astounding powers are under control for the time being – sort of. As she struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of the awesome terror and responsibility of her abilities, she also yearns for the chance at a normal life – and a relationship with Matt Carter, the best friend she had to leave behind. But Matt’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, and he’s not about to give up on his feelings for Jaycie.
As Jaycie and her family grapple with the day-to-day routine of trying to keep their world together, Jaycie’s mother figure, Allison Young, endures a personal crisis of her own. The superhuman blonde possesses the physical equivalent of Jaycie’s awesome psychic power. So evolved, at ninety-two she still looks twenty. But what good is extended life when everyone else around her is so fragile? With no one to share her unusual life, she’s a uniquely lonely woman yearning for the romantic love she sees all around her. But in a dream she gets her wish – and it quickly turns to a nightmare for everyone else in her life. The memory of a rose is all she can hold onto in the storm of obsession that nearly sweeps her away.
Things quickly turn deadly for the vampires, but the Dey-Vah Guard fairies refuse to acknowledge there’s an imbalance in the nature they protect. As the danger gets ever closer to Jaycie and her family, the race is on to find answers before a secret plot can destroy them all.
Picking up from my review of Darwin's Children, I was worried Jaycie would be all powerful and my concern was who or what could possibly oppose an all powerful being? Well that's not an issue in Unnatural Law due to the fact that Jacyie's powers are now unstable after her last power surge. Telepathy is hit or miss at best and telekinesis is potentially extremely dangerous under high emotions.
Jaycie's instability is not the only thing hanging over The Core's head. The Dey-Vah guard (The Core's very own body guards issued by Mother Nature) are having instability issues of their own. There trouble; keeping tabs on the very people they are supposed to protect.
With so much going on and so many great characters with so many awesome powers, you would think there would be some difficulty keeping up with everyone, but I'm very pleased with how Natasha kept everything in some kind of order. I absolutely adore all of her characters. Jaycie is a wonderful person. Matt and John are hilarious especially when they get into their banter. And Haylee she's so sarcastic and I love it.
I give Unnatural Law 5 out of 5 Necromancers for all the intrigue, a few shadowy figures, and the whole cast of characters in general. I recommend it for ages 13 and up or for anyone who is a fanatic about superpowers in general.
