A Diamond in My Heart, book two of The Unaltered, follows teen-aged Calli Courtnae as she learns how to control her new cosmic superpowers. She's afraid she's no match for some of the other people who are showing up with different paranormal powers, including a time-rewinding teen who apparently has some romantic fantasy about her going on in his head. She faces more challenges with him as he attempts to save the day.
Maetha, her paranormal guide, assigns Calli to investigate the young man and teach him what a real superhero looks like. Before that can happen, she'll have to determine what his power actually is--and that takes her into an action-packed adventure in itself. All the while, someone is systematically kidnapping the clan leaders who wear the near-magical diamond amulets.
Calli feels overwhelmed with trying to figure everything out and keep balance in the world. All her powers--the ability to read minds, view the future, heal people, and locate other Sanguine Diamond Bearers--should be a good thing. They turn sour, however, when she learns of traitors who've sided with the U.S. government, threatening her new world and the lives of those she loves.
Even with all her superpowers, she feels alone and up against insurmountable odds. She begins to question the loyalty and friendship of others. She has no one to turn to when, ultimately, she is faced with the inevitable--the reuniting of the diamond shards.
Who can she trust, or who just wants her dead and has everything in place to make that happen?
A #1 bestseller in eleven countries, with over 225,000 downloads, the Unaltered series' readers have shown their love with over 1,200 5-star reviews. The tale woven is one that feels ensconced in today's world alongside a huge dose of superpowers.
Pretty good book
Overall the book is a fun quick read, I'm just confused about when book 3 is being released. On Lorena's blog her last comment about the new book was at June 28, she says that the book would be released sometime in the end of summer 2012, but it's already 2013 and there are no new updates on her blog, it would be nice to know.
Amazing!!! Kept me in the edge of my seat just like the first one. I just didn't like that it left me hanging to the point that I NEED to read the next one, not just want to.
My New Series Obsession
Great characters & series. Good read for preteens-adults couldn't stop reading & ended up reading nonstop through the night. I can't wait for book 3! Sad it's not out yet or I would currently still be reading! :)
