About the Book: 

In the second installment of The GenEx Saga, high school senior Chapel Ryan continues to learn more about Tempus—the genetic exception she possesses that allows her to manipulate energy. Chapel’s worlds collide when a threat meant for her endangers someone she loves. In her search for answers and retribution, Chapel unravels mysteries surrounding the GenEx world that places her life in more peril than ever before.

Chapel thought finding out that her father was actually alive would be the biggest shock of her life. As it turns out … she was wrong.

Review:

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

I read Tempus, the first book in the GenEx Saga so I was excited to read and review the second book, Expertus. I was not disappointed. It was difficult to put the book down. I had a bad case of “just one more chapter” while reading this book.

Holly Lauren’s fantasy world is described well and it’s interesting to learn what gifts the different GenExes possess. 

The characters are well developed. I did have to keep reminding myself that Chapel is only 18 years old, and even though she’s special, she still has a lot of maturing to do. The love story of Chapel and Zay  continues but they face many difficulties because they’re not “normal” and have more responsibilities than normal teens.

Expertus is a great read. It has a lot of drama and several twists. I do recommend reading Tempus first, though.

PAPERBACK

 

About the Author:

3-1-2014 7-29-40 PMHolly was born and raised in a small town in North Georgia. The third of four children, Holly grew up telling stories to get herself out of—and her siblings into—trouble. When she was eight years old, she penned her first publication: a newspaper called Sunny Dayz News. While she didn’t sell any actual copies, her sympathetic grandmother did peruse through the edition at least once.

When Holly isn’t dreaming up new plotlines for her next book, she enjoys breakfasting at Picnic Café in Dahlonega, Georgia with her (handsome) husband and their two (adorable) daughters.
