The heroine: Rae Kerrigan – she returns to school for her final year with a greater knowledge of her Tatù gift. Similar to her father’s gift, she is able to use the gifts of other Tatù’s after touching them. However, hers is even better than his was.
The Hero(es): Devon – he and Rae are now dating (in secret) since it is forbidden between Tatù people. Devon is now working for the Privy Council to try to find pieces of the brainwashing device that her father and his followers tried to use on her at the end of last year.
Julian – Friend to both Devon and Rae. Julian has the gift of future visions. He works with Devon for the Privy Council.
Kraigan – New student. He was found by headmaster Carter in an orphanage after getting a Tatù. He has dark curly hair and looks somewhat familiar to Rae. It is unclear what his Tatù actually does.
Molly – Rae’s roommate last year. Her Tatù is electricity. She loves to shop and got a new boyfriend over the summer.
There was a lot of action in this book and a different villain than in the last book. Though the biggest thing is the way Rae doesn’t know who she can trust. It seems almost everyone she knows might have some reason to deceive her or at the very least is keeping something secret or has ulterior motives.
The story was better than in the first book and a bit more involved. The narration was every bit as good as the first book. The only voice I don’t like is that of Julian. It seems so slow, though it must be be hard to create different voices for all the different characters in this book.
