The Number (Zincian Legend #2) by Sheenah Freitas
Posted by Krystal Larson at 7:11 PM Sunday, April 8, 2012
The new "Numbers" program, created by the Tueors’ leader, tracks and isolates demigods. Kaia's friend, Catrina, refuses to take part, and that makes her the most dangerous Number of all.
It's Kaia's duty to gather and protect the treasures of the gods. But neither the treasures nor Catrina are what they appear to be.
As the day a dire prophesy foresees draws near, will Kaia reverse the gears of fate, or will everything she's ever loved be burned away by the flames of war?
In this sequel to The Chosen, Kaia returns after a five year disappearance. While she was gone the Tueors’ leader has created a “Numbers” system which will track and isolate demigods like Kaia’s friend and guide, Catrina. Kaia is ready to fulfill her duty to find and protect the treasures of the gods. Before she begins, Kaia finds her companions first Catrina – who would not submit to the number system – and Derek, now a married prince of the merfolk, and Reeze – who has been monitoring the Tueors from within their ranks. The day of the dire prophesy is approaching, so Kaia and her friends must succeed in her mission.
The adventure and fantasy of the writing quickly (by chapter 3) pulls the reader into worlds of merfolk and vampires. Since I hadn’t read the first book in the series, I may be missing pieces of the characters and their relationships, but I found some of the dialogue and description to be rather unexciting…considering the thrilling adventures in the plot. It’s good writing, but it’s difficult to connect to the characters, especially Kaia. The instances when Kaia seems to be most interesting are when she is expressing her thoughts, talking to her inner voice.
The author’s creation of fantasy worlds is appealing; the mission is exciting. Middle schoolers and young teens might really enjoy reading this series of mystical adventures.
