Elias and Merrin’s story continues in TWO, coming October, 2013… Elias and Merrin are on the run.

After escaping the Biotech Hub, they thought they could breathe easy, or at least a little easier. But when bombs slam into the Social Welfare Hub only hours after their arrival, it becomes clear there’s nowhere to hide – and no end to what Biotech will do to get them back.

Their last chance for safety and answers is the Clandestine Service Hub. CS has intel on the real, broader purpose behind Fisk’s experiments , and the newfound knowledge of the horrors hidden deep within Biotech’s walls sends Merrin back to recover a secret formula that could ruin the Supers’ world forever—and might just save the lives of the Biotech victims spiraling out of control.

Elias’ sisters are counted among the victims of Fisk’s experiments, and if Elias can’t find and help them, their powers will destroy them–sooner rather than later. Returning to the place it all began terrifies him, but with Fisk ready to make an example out of Merrin, and his sisters’ lives –and the lives of all Supers–hanging in the balance, he might not have a choice. If he can’t find the courage to face his worst fears, Elias might lose more than his newfound powers. He might lose everyone he loves.

As much I enjoyed the first book, I couldn’t wait to continue this series. The first book ends at an exciting scene and I wanted to find out what Elias and Merrin would do next. However, I just couldn’t click with this book as I did with the first one. I don’t know if my reason for not connecting and having a difficulty staying focus is the different POV or maybe because of the slow pace. I do know what it was but I really did struggle getting through this book.

Be careful what you wish you for, is the theme of this book. Throughout the book we followed the journey of Merrin and Elias as they are on the run. Merrin dreams of becoming more than a One. Her goal is be able to fly on her own. Although she loves Elias, she doesn’t believe she is enough as a One. And having to depend on him in order to fly is something she doesn’t want forever. I like the concept of her wanting more but at a point, I felt annoyed at her.

I love Elias, he is a sweetheart. He's very calm and loving. He gave Merrin space she needed. He let her explore and experiment on her own. But the fact that he didn’t stand up for his love, irritated me. Come on; tell the girl how you really feel. Tell her is okay to be the way she is.

None the less, this was a good story. I love the concept of it and the powers of the new characters. I love how Elias becomes the hero he never thought to be. I love how Merrin learns her lesson. It was indeed a good story of superheroes and the lesson of team work.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Raised on comic books and classic novels, Leigh Ann developed an early love of science fiction and literature. As an adult, she rediscovered her love for not only reading, but also writing the types of fiction that enchanted her as a teen. Her debut novel, ONE, is about a girl with only half a superpower, the boy who makes her fly, and her struggle to make herself whole.

Leigh Ann, her husband, and four children live in Columbus, Ohio. When she’s not immersed in the world of fiction, you can find her obsessing over the latest superhero movie or using her kids as an excuse to go out for ice cream (again.)


  1. Oh my gosh, you've made my DAY with this info! I absolutely ADORED "One"- it was one of those 'sleeper' hits for me, as I hadn't heard of it until I stumbled upon it one day.
    It was poetic at times, such a wonderful, sweet, gut-wrenching story. I cannot WAIT to read "Two", giddy with anticipation, that's what I am, lol.

  2. One is on my TBR, I'm really excited to read it. Glad that there's already a sequel to it so that I won't have to wait long to know what would happen to the story once I finish One :D
