Audiobook Review: Vital Found (The Evelyn Maynard Trilogy, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Vital Found by Kaydence Snow

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The electrifying sequel to the International Bestseller Variant Lost.

Bradford Hills feels more like home than any other place Evelyn Maynard and her mother lived while on the run. But with everyone reeling from the violent clash between Variants and humans, her new home doesn’t feel safe any more.

Navigating four increasingly complicated supernatural bonds in secret doesn’t help. Ethan and Josh can’t keep their hands off her. Tyler is supportive, but continues to keep her at arm’s length. Alec has both saved and destroyed her yet seems oblivious to the turmoil he’s caused.

As tensions between Variants and humans continue to escalate, dark and dangerous secrets keep creating seemingly insurmountable challenges.

Who’s kidnapping Vitals?

What was Evelyn’s mom running from?

Will it ever be safe for Evelyn to go public with her true identity?

More deadly answers are coming, whether she’s ready for them or not.

The heroine: Eve (a.k.a. Evelyn) – She now knows that she is the Vital for the 4 Heroes. A Vital is a conduit to the light for the guys. The Vital absorbs the light and can filter it into the Variant(s) that they are bonded to. Eve is bonded to all 4 of the Heroes.

The Hero(es): Tyler (a.k.a. Gabe) – with the light he gets from Eve, he can not only determine that others are telling lies, but what they are lying about and what is the truth behind the lie.
Ethan (a.k.a. Kid) – He is gaining control of his fire ability.
Josh – He has the power of Telekinesis and with the light infusions from Eve, he is working on being able to fly.
Alec (a.k.a. Master of Pain) – He can send pain out in huge waves. He is doing everything he can to deny his bond with Eve.

The Love Story: The relationship between Alec and Eve is strained to say the least at the start of this book. Also Eve doesn’t really know what her relationship with Tyler is. Since he works for the administration at the Institute, she sees him as a sort of authority figure so she is confused about that and thinks he doesn’t have romantic feelings for her.

The audio/narration is growing on me with the second book, though I still don’t like the male narration. Not only is the voice too old sounding for these young guys, the inflection he uses for Tyler is too chipper and still reminds me of a movie trailer voice. Also, the inflection he uses for Ethan is way too surfer dude and dumb sounding, some of the writing for Ethan shows him as not the brightest of the four, but this voice makes him sound so dumb that it is hard to see what Eve would see in him.

The story was great. I liked it as much as the first book. There was the acrimony between the hate groups and the Variants, the continued issues between Eve and Tyler, and the animosity that Alec seems to hold for Eve. The storylines just keep getting more interesting.
