Roya desperately wishes she was above ground, on a sunny patio, watching the lake lap up on the shore. Instead, she finds herself trapped with the Lucidites. Her brother is mysteriously wasting away, and at every turn she finds a new betrayal. Just when she thinks she’s finally escaping the Institute, a new danger unveils itself. A secret society of Dream Travelers has declared war on the Lucidites by abducting a head official. It’s up to Roya to figure out who’s behind it and how to save everyone she cares about most. More action packed than its predecessor, Stunned is captivating and will leave audiences squirming from the tension and also begging for more.
I am just going to admit that I am a big ol’, unabashed fangirl of this series. I’m totally Team Roya/Aiden. You can’t help but also like George, and feel bad for him, but the true chemistry is with Roya and Aiden.
I loved this book just as much as I loved the first book (Awoken), but to me it seemed odd that the main conflict in the book was wrapped up pretty much 2/3 of the way through. I was waiting for there to be something else. Once Aiden was rescued, I thought maybe he was compromised in some way that would be revealed later. What was going on with Joseph certainly was a big reveal at the end, but I would have liked more clues both about what he was doing, and Trey’s role.
My only other qualm about this series is the underdevelopment of the other characters. Samara, Trent, etc. We got to see Trent shine a bit in this book, but I still really don’t feel like I know much about them and their skills. Perhaps in book three, which I plan on reading ASAP!
