First they made me kill.
Then leave behind the one person I love.
Now I’m getting even.

Annie and Fia have battled to survive within the sinister Keane Foundation for years, using their powers to defend each other. Now the sisters have allies; friends who might help them escape.

But Annie's visions of the future are never certain and Fia's flawless instincts can't always tell her who to trust. With only each other truly to rely on, their extraordinary gifts may not be enough to save them…
This novel was incredibly peculiar, I was unsure as to whether I liked it or not. It was impeccably different and strange, but it kept me reading. I feel the cover truly reflects the plot of this book, alongside Fia's battle with her feelings and what she knows is right, however I do personally prefer the US cover.

Carrying directly on from the events of Mind Games, Fia is trying to keep her emotions and thoughts in check to protect her sister, whom is 'dead'. However, it backfires as Annie knows nothing of what Fia has in mind or whether she has a plan or not. But Annie can see the future, as both sides try to stop the enemies, the enemies themselves become twirled and mixed up as well.

Fia is a delicate and appeared vulnerable character on the inside, though her outer shell is deceiving. Throughout the novel, her character develops and her protectiveness yet confusion simply surface with slowness; the one thing I disliked about her was her selfishness, she consistently talks about herself , only sparing minimal thoughts for others. Annie however I found to be a lovely, sweet character. She appears to be the complete opposite of her sister and always tries to be of an assistance to all; she doesn't sit back and instead gets stuck in!

The plot was interesting, however its progression I found to be rather slow. On the other hand, I loved the deliberate shielding of many key points in the novel that made the outcome unpredictable and shocking; you never knew what was going to happen next. Alongside this, I love the mystery behind Fia's tapping, I do not understand it however it is consistently spoken of by both Annie and Fia so I am intrigued as to what it means, unless it is just nervousness!

This is an interesting novel of which is unpredictable and mind-twirling. Read the first instalment: Mind Games.
