Description: The sisters have been manipulated and controlled by the Keane Foundation for years, trapped in a never ending battle for survival. Now they have found allies who can help them truly escape. After faking her own death, Annie has joined a group that is plotting to destroy the Foundation. And Fia is working with James Keane to bring his father down from the inside. But Annie's visions of the future can't show her who to trust in the present. And though James is Fia's first love, Fia knows he's hiding something. The sisters can rely only on each other - but that may not be enough to save them.
I Give This ...
I wasn't sure how I felt about this one. I wasn't completely sold on Mind Games. The overall plot greatly intrigued me, so I decided to read this one.
I really enjoyed that this one focused more on Annie. Perhaps that's why the first one didn't fully connect with me, I had a hard time with Fia. Annie's choices made a lot more sense to me. I really enjoyed that added twist that she is blind. I think it makes her instincts that much more powerful. She relies on her visions quite a bit as well, which makes some of the events extremely interesting.
There are some intense moments that drove the story forward. There were times I felt like the book was in a lull, and then bam something crazy would happen. These events would leave me wondering what the heck Fia was up to. I never trusted James, even in the end. I don't think he had Fia's best interest at heart. He saw her as a means to and end.
I loved the ending. I did not see that what coming. Who could have thought the blind girl carried such a punch! I goes to show that sometimes the person you least expect can totally save the day!
