Reckoning by R.S. Broadhead

ReckoningBook Description:
Reese Salt has had a strenuous past year. Being introduced into a world of monsters, training non stop, fighting against a growing force that terrifies her, and falling in love with her trainer has drained her. Things are not getting better. In fact, they seem to be out of control. 

After discovering she isn’t entirely human, Reese is afraid to open up to those around her. She sees herself hunted and locked away in a cage. Someone close to her in the group is manipulated by Derek and abandons them to join forces with those they are fighting against. Once finding out that Derek has plans for Sim, Reese brings him to the training camp. This sets things on a downward spiral for her. Feeling lost, she leaves in search of answers. 

She is a part of something much greater than she knows. All things keep leading her back to a truth that is just out of her reach. What will it take for her to openly learn what her role is against Derek? 

Can Reese accept who she really is? A fight is coming for her, a fight she can’t escape.

My Thoughts:
I couldn't wait to dive into this book.  Reese learned some things about herself in Unveiled (book 1) and now she thinks she is putting the ones she loves in danger.  The group dynamic is changing and not for the better.  They have already lost on, another is unhappy and ripe to be picked by the bad guys, and Reese is afraid to open up about herself even to Steele.  Derek is gathering followers and becoming more and more dangerous.
I wasn't sure what to do with Reese in this one.  I so bad wanted to reach out and smack her and tell her to trust Fuzz and Steele but the fear of being rejected or a possible threat held her back.  I absolutely loved getting Fuzz's back story and more explanation of what was going on.  At one point in the book I was furious at the author for the turn of events but had to keep reading to see what happened!  The author does a great job weaving her story and I cannot wait to see where all of this leads.
It was another 5/5 for me but I cannot believe the way she ended it!  I must read the next one NOW! 

Thank you to the author for the review copy of this book.  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
