When I finished True Calling, I was desperate to read its sequel right away. The cliff hanger was too much to bear, but I thought I'd be safe once I started and finished this one. Wrong. Nope, my emotions are even more all over the place and I have so many questions because...
What I liked: Siobhan Davis is a cliff hanger queen. She knows exactly how to build up tensions in a scene and drop a bomb that leaves you wanting more. And it's not like random things that you won't care about; it's actual game changing moments that leave you feeling unsatisfied in a good way. So in Beyond Reach, Ari's world get a million times bigger and the line of who to trust blurs like no other. I enjoyed seeing just how convoluted the government was and how everything related back to Ari and her gang. I also love Zane. Like a lot. Big fan, here.
What I didn't like: I'm going out on a limb here and posting a spoiler, so WARNING SPOILER AHEAD. I was annoyed with the fact that Ari was pregnant. There, I said it. I don't like reading about teenage pregnancy if it's only something added in to cause further drama. I just kept thinking she shouldn't be taking so many crazy risks if she had a baby inside her. She was also way too obsessed about the fact that she was so sure the baby was Cal's. It was almost a bit naive considering she was on so many hormones and the government was doing all these experiments involving fertility etc. Maybe it's because I'm not the biggest Cal fan. He was just way too obsessed with her (and admits to stalking her house) and it feels like teenage lust instead of real love.
I feel like I'm always pickier when it comes to sequels. Maybe I just get high expectations. Regardless, I'm still really looking forward to the conclusion of this trilogy. I feel like there's so much that's about to go down and I can't wait to see how it all turns out.
