Earthbound #2
by Aprilynne Pike
Coming July 15, 2014

Tavia Michaels has discovered that she’s an Earthbound—a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth—and that a rival faction of Earthbounds, the Reduciata, has created a virus that is literally wiping swaths of the planet out of existence.

Tavia is captured and imprisoned before she can act on this information, along with her eternal lover, Logan. Huddled in a claustrophobic cell, they lose track of the days, their attempts to escape proving as ephemeral as Tavia’s newly gestating powers. But then Tavia and Logan are mysteriously rescued. . . .

They’re brought to the underground headquarters of the Curatoria, another group of Earthbounds that Tavia doesn’t fully trust. There, she’s told that she can save the Earth before it disappears. She agrees.

Tavia quickly realizes that she isn’t like other Earthbound, and as her abilities continue to awaken, they begin to threaten her centuries-long relationship with Logan. When Benson—Tavia’s former best friend and romantic interest—appears at Curatoria headquarters, Tavia will again have to make a choice about who to be with even as she tries to stop the virus that is destroying the world and uncover the truth about the two Earthbound organizations that have her tangled up in their webs.

Why I want it:
I really enjoyed Earthbound! I think it's a cool twist on immortals, and I really would like to see what's going to happen now that Tavia more-or-less knows what's going on and Logan has been introduced.

Why I think you should want it:
Mmm, so much swoon! Benson is truly delicious, you guys. I mean, really, he's just spectacular. But there are also swoony flashbacks with an immortal hottie, and now Logan is in the mix, which means it's just going to be Swoon City! At least I hope so. In all seriousness, as I said above, the Earthbound series has a really interesting twist on immortals, and it's got a cool mystery going with the how's and the why's. Add some running for your lifes coupled with the swoony we might die any second so why shouldn't we make outs, and this series is pretty dang addicting!
