"A captivating book with a superb mix of fantasy, romance, mystery, emotion, and drama... I really loved the fantasy elements. But the book isn't all fantasy or mystery; there's a great deal of emotion as well.... a fun romance to watch unfold." - Aeicha, Word Spelunking review

Loved Book 1. Book 2 is even better! Very exciting, frustrating, exciting, annoying, exciting! I couldn't put this down and was devastated when I got to the end because I already knew Book 3 wasn't yet published. Hope it gets published soon because I'm dying to see how it all ends! Seriously though, great story. I'd love to see this made into a movie some day.
As far as second books go, Alight: Peril (Pyxis book 2) was absolutely amazing! Having gotten to know all of the main characters is book one, I was ready for some action in this book and definitely was not disappointed! Every turn of the page brought something new, whether it was a new fight, the nearness of the Summer Solstice, or seeing Zane, the hot Aussie Shield. *swoon* A very well-written, fast paced novel that leaves me breathless for the next book.
Still moves along at a good pace with good character development(Harriette scares the hell out of me). A lot of questions developed in the first book get answered and some with interesting twists. I'm not an expert on paranormal YA novels but for my money this whole Pyxis thing is about as original as it gets.
