Review
  • Grades 8-12 In Pike’s second in her Earthbound series, Tavia Michaels has come to grips with her fallen goddess powers, but she is desperately trying to remember the harsh secret of her past lives. Captured by the evil Reduciata, which has created a virus that’s wiping out the world’s population, Tavia uses her resurging skills to craft an escape plan. Just when the plan appears doomed, she is rescued by medical personnel from the Curatoria, the Reduciata’s rival earthbound faction, and secreted away to its underground facility. Tavia, who has been warned not to trust the Curatoria, especially its leader, Daniel, must also grapple with the knowledge that she alone has the power to save the world. Readers who loved Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games (2008) will find much in this series to enjoy. Tavia has far more fantastical powers than Katniss, but her struggle to choose between two lovers and her determination to survive so she might save others will ring familiar. It’s another thrilling adventure fantasy featuring a strong young woman pitted against evil forces that will have readers eagerly awaiting the third installment. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: New York Times best-selling author Pike will be on your radar with this highly publicized series. -- Bradburn, Frances (Reviewed 06-01-2014) (Booklist, vol 110, number 19, p88)
  • Gr 9 Up — After discovering in Earthbound (Penguin, 2014) that she is a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth, Tavia is imprisoned along with eternal lover Logan by a rival faction that is set on destroying humanity with a virus. Mankind's fate hangs in the balance. A tense read that will leave fans of the series eager for the next book. --Staff (Reviewed August 1, 2014) (School Library Journal, vol 60, issue 8, p110)
  • Following Earthbound (2013), Taviaâ€TMs missing memories hold the key to saving the world.Reincarnated goddess Tavia has found the boy/fellow Earthbound that sheâ€TMs spent her past lives loving—a good thing, as they needed to reunite to “resurge,” or recover their full powers and renew their immortality for another set of reincarnations. In a slow start, before Tavia can make progress with Logan, the Reduciata capture them. Attempting to escape, Tavia discovers a dangerous special ability—just in time for the Curatoria to rescue them. Though long suspicious of the Curatoria, Tavia accepts their help in triggering Loganâ€TMs memory, in return helping the Curatoriaâ€TMs leader in his quest to cure the Reduciataâ€TMs virus. In addition to ravaging the human population, the virus has made its way into the Earthbound population, with catastrophic implications—a Transformist, Taviaâ€TMs the only one who can stop it and save the globeâ€TMs population. At the same time, she must figure out whom to trust—sheâ€TMs been warned against the Curatoriaâ€TMs leader, and everyone seems to be keeping secrets. Additionally, she discovers she and Logan were not the only ones taken by the Curatoria—her former love interest, Benson, returns to anchor the love triangle. The farther into the pages, the deeper the intrigue gets—revelations fly so fast in the conclusion that readers may struggle to keep up.A twisty, fun read for the paranormal faithful. (Paranormal romance. 14 & up)(Kirkus Reviews, June 15, 2014)
