Review Source: Entangled: Teen
Tormented after a daring escape, Cora Sandoval must find a way to stop the Arrazi from murdering innocent people and from violating, using, and killing the Scintilla for their powers. She must also accept one bitter betrayal: Finn Doyle—the Irish boy who has both a piece of Cora's heart and soul—is Arrazi...
On the verge of extinction and sought by those who would either consume or destroy them, Cora and the remaining Scintilla survivors must solve the mystery of The Light Key. If they fail, the truth will stay buried forever and mankind will pay the ultimate price.
No longer will she hide.
No longer will her loved ones be hunted.
And she will have her vengeance...even if she shatters her heart in the process.
Deviate is the sequel of Scintillate. Though it was good, I did not quite enjoy the sequel as I did with the first book. The pace was too slow for my liking.
With the betrayal of Finn, Cora is determined than ever to stop Arrazi from killing her kind. As a Scintilla, her powers are wanted. With more Scintilla being murdered, Cora must act fast and find a way how to help her people.
Deviate is a good story line. Though the pace killed me. I felt like a lot of information was thrown at once. It felt like I was reading a history book. Cora spent so much time doing research, which is good, since she needs to find a way to help out. Yet, she did very little of action. It was to the very end that she actually did something.
Even though I did not mentioned this on my Scintillate review, the love triangle is torture. I don’t think it is necessary for a second love interest. Sure Finn is an Arrazi but he is devoted to her. Just stop already, make them happy! In Deviate, it is more annoying. It is vague. There is no option. I just want Cora and Finn together. They are meant to be. In a happy bubble. God, I hope the last book is full of Finn.
Despite this, I am looking forward to a happy ending. I hope Cora finds a way to help her people and I hope she finds happiness with Finn. Seriously, I will not be a happy camper if they do not end up together.
