Am I losing my mind, or my power? Right now, I’m not sure which would be worse.

A little over a year after the events of Blood Relations, Alex Winters is doing well, with a relatively comfortable home life with his girlfriend and baby. Although his position as underboss for the Lupino group is starting to weigh on him, he truly thinks the most difficult times of his life are behind him. When he is approached by GenEx, and discovers that there are others with special abilities like him, he finds out just how wrong he is.

I didn’t read the first book in this series yet – I received a review copy, but unfortunately didn’t have time to read both. However, I found this book easy to follow, and so I think it can be read as a stand-alone, although probably better if you follow the series though.

Main character Alex has a rather dark personality, and went through some bad things in his childhood. But he’s managed to overcome it all, and he’s now a father, and has a steady girlfriend, Lori. However, it’s not like he can stay home and play a good dad. There’s still the matter of his powers – he can conjure figre with his mind.

When the GenEx corps shows up and tells him there are more people out there with abilities similar to his own, and asks him to cooperate with them, Alex’s initial answer is no. But if he thinks his ‘no’ can stay a ‘no’, then he’d dead wrong.

Alex is a great character. He’s complicated, and has many different layers. The story was good, and the writing was spot on the entire time. I was drawn into this book from the first page, and enjoyed it very much.
