Making a deal with the bad guys wasn’t the highlight of Rena Collins’ semester, but, hey, it saved her boyfriend. Now, in order to appease the human-altering organization known as ERA, she’ll crawl under their microscope while they study the Mark of Nexus and plot their eye-glazed version of the future--until she realizes that’s not all they’re plotting.
Wallace Blake has always known his girlfriend is unlike most girls. But now that information has surfaced regarding the two bloodlines that balance his supernatural race, he finally understands why. Rena belongs to one of them. She’s been augmenting his power, all along...
Enter: Corynn Catley. Brought into the country under the guise of an internship, she’s intended to become ERA’s secret weapon. Kind of. Her abilities cancel out Wallace’s, rendering him powerless, but that’s exactly what he’s always wanted. Too bad it only works when his girlfriend’s not around.
All the while, Rena fails to notice the crush her geeky best friend, Aiden Ross, is nursing. He’d give anything for her to see him in a new light--even reinvent himself through questionable means--but there’s a reason people are told to be careful what they wish for. Finding the courage to tell her could put everyone’s lives in danger.
I was given an ARC for an Honest Review.
The Group is back in Courage(Mark of Nexus Book 2).This story can be a stand alone BUT I personally would recommend Reading Strength first as well quite frankly I do feel you will be lost if you do not.Courage starts off again with where Strength Left off,here are plenty of new problems to deal with.One problem is a Corynn Catley who is brought in as the ERAs secret weapon and Aiden..Rena's best friend who has a humongous crush on her.
Wallace and Rena are still dealing with the fact that Wallace is indeed so strong until one day they figure out how to make it work via trial and error.It however does not stop Rena from trying to become a Martyr and doing something she and Wallace will regret.Courage is a wonderful continuation of Mark of the Nexus.I would love to write more on the happenings but I will NOT post spoilers.
Courage is told in Several Points of View.They were done well and did not detract from the story.You were able to keep up and know what was going on with the other characters that you previously did not. I am utterly enthralled in this series.Hook,Line and Sinker.The ability that Carrie has to draw you into a story and keep you there is a special talent.Im eagerly awaiting Book 3 in the series.Yet another job well done.I highly highly recommend reading Courage(Mark of the Nexus) AFTER you read Strength.
