“Christina Bauer has a gift with sucking you into a story and not letting go until the final sentence is over. This was one of those stories.” – The Book Herald
Our heroine Meimi Archer has been assigned to attend ECHO Academy. There, the evil Headmaster believes that Meimi will help the government conquer other dimensions.
But Meimi and her friends have some very different ideas. They’re starting a revolution.
That is, if the Headmaster doesn’t find out and murder them first.
“If you like books set in a dystopian futuristic society then you are going to LOVE Alien Minds.” – The Avid Reader
Christina Bauer knows how to tell stories about kick-ass women. In her best selling Angelbound series, the heroine is a part-demon girl who loves to fight in Purgatory’s Arena and falls in love with a part-angel prince. This young adult best seller has driven more than 500,000 ebook downloads and 9,000 reviews on Goodreads and retailers. The first three books in the series are now available as audiobooks on Audible and iTunes.
Bauer has also told the story of the Women’s March on Washington by leading PR efforts for the Massachusetts Chapter. Her pre-event press release—the only one sent out on a major wire service—resulted in more than 19,000 global impressions and redistribution by over 350 different media entities including the Associated Press.
Christina graduated from Syracuse University’s Newhouse School with BA’s in English along with Television, Radio, and Film Production. She lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby.
Disclaimer: I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you to Xpresso Book Tours, Netgalley, and Monster House Books for this free copy. All quotes in this review are taken from the Advanced Reader Copy and may change in final publication.
So this one was a little interesting because while it says it’s the second book in the series, Goodreads says it’s the fourth book in the series because there are two prequels that count as well. So take that as you will, I’m going based off what Xpresso has it listed as.
Anyway, this book takes place right after the events of the third (first?) book, and we are able to see the aftermath of what’s going on with our characters Meimi and Thorne, as well as Meimi’s friends Chloe and Zoe. There’s a little chaos to deal with since there’s some sort of unbreakable void that Meimi is trapped in, separated from her boyfriend Thorne. And then Meimi and her friends are trying to start a revolution against Headmaster Conway but he wants to kill them.
The drama is real here, folks.
I highly recommend reading this in order because it won’t make sense otherwise. The plot can get really complicated and it would behoove you to pay attention to what happened in previous books to keep track of what is happening in this book. Other than that, I think it was a pretty fun ride.
