Seraphina’s keeping a secret from her Wandering team: she’s perfecting her fighting skills. But telling Sam and Bishop the truth would only alert them to her plan: to go back in time, save her mom, and finish what she started. With the help of Turner, Bishop’s handsome twin, she progresses toward her goal but plummets deeper into dangerous territory where the lines of friendship and romance are blurred. One passionate kiss changes everything, leading Sera to unravel a shocking web of family secrets, heartbreaking ulterior motives, and sinister agendas. Love and lies collide in a haunting climax, where the truest souls may not survive.
PROTECTING TRUTH is the second book in the Seraphina Parrish Trilogy by Indie author, Michelle Warren. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because she has a new book coming up in June and I had just helped out with her netwide cover reveal (https://casscourtier.wordpress.com/2014/04/21/book-cover-reveal-he-she-by-michelle-warren/).
I really liked the first book with its Inception like way of time travel with a Harry Potter esque setting (boarding school of magical misfits with magical high tech stuff too). What was great about PROTECTING TRUTH is that the world is becoming more real. There is a mythos inside the world of the Wanderers and Warren only gives us a taste of it in this book. She also elaborates more about the Society of Wanderers and some of their inner workings (I love that it seems too good to be true and in this book we find out why).
There’s betrayal, mystery, and of course the typical teen angst (which I love!). Out of the two, WANDER DUST is my favorite, but PROTECTING TRUTH does stand on its own as a good sequel to an interesting young adult series. Right now, I’m cracking open the third one.
