Unnatural Law (Darwin's Children Book 2) by Natasha Larry

If you would like to read my review of book 1 click here
Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner’s psychokinetic power surge is over, and her astounding powers are under control for the time being – sort of. As she struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of the awesome terror and responsibility of her abilities, she also yearns for the chance at a normal life – and a relationship with Matt Carter, the best friend she had to leave behind. But Matt’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, and he’s not about to give up on his feelings for Jaycie.

As Jaycie and her family grapple with the day-to-day routine of trying to keep their world together, Jaycie’s mother figure, Allison Young, endures a personal crisis of her own. The superhuman blonde possesses the physical equivalent of Jaycie’s awesome psychic power. So evolved, at ninety-two she still looks twenty. But what good is extended life when everyone else around her is so fragile? With no one to share her unusual life, she’s a uniquely lonely woman yearning for the romantic love she sees all around her. But in a dream she gets her wish – and it quickly turns to a nightmare for everyone else in her life. The memory of a rose is all she can hold onto in the storm of obsession that nearly sweeps her away.

Things quickly turn deadly for the vampires, but the Dey-Vah Guard fairies refuse to acknowledge there’s an imbalance in the nature they protect. As the danger gets ever closer to Jaycie and her family, the race is on to find answers before a secret plot can destroy them all

I love these books because they are so unique and the world building is very descriptive and imaginative. There are vampires and fairies but unlike any other Paranormal teen read out there today.
I love Jaycie, and watching her learn how to control her powers is an intriguing one that you really don't know what is going to happen, whether somebody will actually end up getting hurt or not because she has not control. I also love the ensemble of characters, we get to know more about each person from the first book as well as bringing in some new characters..and maybe the beginning of a love triangle?
The author has a great way of letting the story flow smoothly and great timing of events. 6 characters trying to figure out their own lives, yet intertwine with each other. I enjoyed the deeper look into the Dey-Vah guard. The Fairies, vampires and super human's intermingling into a flawless story that has a little bit of everything and not overdone or overwhelming at all. As nobody is quite feeling themselves these days this installment turns into a bit of a mystery to solve to see if all their ailments may be related.
I enjoyed this 2nd book just as much as the first, I am immensely excited to see what is going to happen in their story especially when Jaycie gets a grip on her powers and can start building on them. I'm excited to see what she can really do when she puts her mind to it.
