The Mackenzie Legacy (The Athena Effect, #2)


3 stars

You can find my previous posts about Derrolyn’s first book in The Athena Effect series here.

Read from March 26 to 31, 2014

Synopsis: As their story continues, Calvin and Caledonia find themselves madly in love, on the run, and nearly out of money. When Cal stumbles upon a way to cash in on Cali’s powers, their life on the road becomes a life of leisure. Despite the easy money and newfound luxury, Caledonia’s conscience begins to trouble her.

A disturbing warning only serves to confirm her misgivings, making her question her purpose in life. Finally, a shocking discovery about the true nature of her powers points the way forward, sending the two Cals on a dangerous rescue mission.

Caledonia tries her best to right the wrongs of the past, but will she only end up provoking new and even more dangerous enemies?

Bookish things: Approx. 200 pages. The cover has been redone in a newer release. I like this one as it shows the women with their different coloured eyes.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $3.07 or on Smashwords for $2.99

My review:

The second installment with Cal and Cali, saw a few twists and turns. A few of the steps along the way rankled a little. I didn’t appreciate the situation the two Cals found themselves.

I can see why the story progressed as it did, but it didn’t detract from the bitter taste it left in its wake.

That aside, I enjoyed the development of Cal and Cali’s relationship, the growing tenderness coupled with fierce protectiveness works well.

If you enjoyed book 1, pick this one up too, it takes you even further into the roller coaster ride lives of our two protagonists Cal and Cali.

A couple of things I noticed:
70% – they drove a long ways (way)…

81% – despite (the) fact she’d had him…

**Note: I received an electronic copy of this book in return for an honest review.**
