My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wanted to start by thanking Liz for the wonderful opportunity to read and review Fortune’s Favor. Not too long ago ago, I did the review for Book 1 SuperNova and I totally fell in love with it. If you are one of my regular readers (blog) then you know that I love my action packed superhero movies and books!

So it should come as no surprise when I tell you that this baby here is awesome!! We take off directly a few moments after the ending of SuperNova where Henry was taken by Fortune and well… Pen joined him too!

I know!!!

All the twists….

Bearing in mind that this is the transition middle book of the trilogy, we have a lot more insight into who Fortune is and Henry makes a discovery. So I am going to make this as much spoiler free as possible… but I am warning you all that things may come out and it is beyond my control!

Nova and Cole are still going strong as a couple so YAY for that and are facing new challenges in terms of the public opinion’s on them as vigilantes. I love the way these feelings were handled in the book as it cannot be easy to be openly discussed in front of one’s face when no one knows it is you they are talking about.

Of course there is also Henry dealing with a lot of things and the general ambiance of the book is still similar to the first but then I got that feeling of urgency as the book progressed.

Fortune is as evil as usual or even actually more so…. and things are going from bad to worse, I will spare you details but I can tell you that at the end it is bad bad bad!! I will be nice and tell you that we finish off on a huge cliffhanger!



Am I really expected to bear the wait till book 3? Can I say that this is cruel and unusual punishment… ( I know I am being overly dramatic!.. still, I am allowed!!)

Back to the book… It is still wonderfully written, with a good fast pace and non stop action! It is really an easy read and frankly I could not put it down (I had to for work) and I loved how smooth the transition is between SuperNova and Fortune’s Favor.

I really appreciated that there was no time wastage in recapping some previous points from SuperNova and that we dove in directly. For that …. Liz I thank you!

The characters are growing really nicely into their own, though can I say that I am getting worried about Pen a little… Even both sets of parents are changing too and I gotta say, that I have a special fondness for Nova’s dad.

I would like to mention a really touching moment as a flashback scene between Nova and Star that maybe tear up a little. It was really beautifully written!

Not wanting to keep you any longer after all you have the book to read, but I wanted to let you know that is going into the Super Highly Recommended Section of my reads and if you have not checked out this series yet, you are really missing out!

Enjoy Fortune’s Favor and I really hope you love it as much as I did!
