Origo Key (The Avalon Relics) by Jennifer Yen

The Avalon Relics: Origo Key (Book 2)Book Description:
"All things change, and we change with them; 

the time is near, the flower blooms from the stem.

A child of Fey, foreseen in lore, 

with relics in hand, will power restore."

Sophia has barely recovered from her battle with the Dark Ones when she receives word that her presence has been requested in Avalon. The Council of Elders, the realm's highest faeids, plan to perform a quering, a terrifying ceremony that could leave her lost in her memories forever.

To make matters worse, she must accept an offer to be hosted at the home of Ariella and Nathaniel Fey, who believe she is the daughter they gave up to protect. Things are even more complicated once Sophia arrives in the capitol city, with constant nightmares and an old promise threatening to derail her budding romance and tear the friends apart.

Still, the longer she stays in the realm, the closer Sophia feels to the magic around her. Her connection to the Lilith links grow stronger by the day, and soon the sacred relics reveal another secret.

Will living life as a faeid awaken long suppressed powers, or will the pressure be too much for Sophia to handle?

My Thoughts:
After my heart broke at the end of book one, I was ready to see what was in store next for the characters I had grown to love.  Sophia is summoned to Avalon.  There we meet a whole new cast of characters to either like or dislike.  She has to stay with the couple who believe her to be their daughter, but that she has never met before.  Then there are the traditions of the land that she doesn't understand and could easily part her and her friends if she isn't quickly taught.  Add to that, her powers are growing stronger and so is her connection to the relics.  I loved following the gang through another adventure and really like some of the new characters and not so much others.  Can't wait to see where the author takes them next on their journey and the next twist.

It was a 5/5 for me.  I'm in love with this series!
