True Grime 2: Angel Maker by Natasha Deen

Book Description:
For the last two years, human Aponi Runningbear has been training to be part of Grime, the magical police division tasked with protecting humanity from SOAP terrorists. But things aren’t going well. She’s barely keeping up with her studies, failing the physical component, and her Generalized Anxiety Disorder is making her bad days even worse. When her team is given the chance to find a missing coworker and stop SOAP from producing a DNA-altering drug that’s killing humans, Aponi grabs hold of the chance to show she’s meant for Grime. But as the investigation heats up, she’s forced to deal with the tormentor from her past, dead bodies, and the certainty that SOAP’s going to win this battle. Humanity’s dying, Grime’s in trouble, and she’s failing…does a foster kid really have what it takes to save the world and herself?

My Thoughts:
LOVED this book!  This is the sequel to Deen's True Grime and she didn't disappoint.  Aponi is now Grime Straddler in training.  She is having issues with multiple portions of it but she is defiantley smart enough, if she can get past her inner issues.  Right now someone is murdering teenagers with a DNA altering drug.  She must teem up with some characters from the first book and face more than she'd ever anticipated if her dream of becoming a Grime member is going to come true.
Aponi is such a determined character that you have to love her.  Pepper, Donovan, Harley, and many of the others are back and we get to continue their story as we learn the who, how and why of the drug makers are doing what they are doing.  I love that Aponi is able to face her worst fears and not give in to everything.  There are a couple characters you want to hate that you just can't but some that you really like and surprise you.  The storyline keeps you guessing and engrossed throughout. 
I rate this a 5/5.  I am so glad to have revisisted Grime and can't wait for more!
