Review: Settling (Solid #2) by Shelley Workinger

Synopsis (Goodreads):
At the beginning of the summer, Clio Kaid was one of a hundred teens brought to a secret Army installation. But it was no ordinary camp and they weren’t ordinary kids…

Picking up where “Solid” left off, Clio and her friends realize that they aren’t ready to go home; they’re determined to stay on campus and continue their journey of self- discovery. But someone doesn’t feel the same way and will do anything to drive them away – even kill.

Friendships will be tested, abilities will evolve, and more secrets will come out as the teens race to stop the killer before he sets his sights on one of them…
My Thoughts:  I'm having a hard time writing this review because I don't want to give too much away.  There are things that happen.  THINGS.  And the ending made me all O.O.  And now I feel like I need a hug or something.  Needless to say, anytime a writer can wring that much emotion out of me it's a good thing.

*deep breath*

Okay.  So, this book moves the storyline forward as Clio is finding her place in the world and as she attempts to unravel the mystery of what they are capable of.  She makes a few discoveries- both about herself and about their powers- and a few bad choices.  The bad choices ... well, they hurt.  They hurt a lot.

New characters, dastardly deeds, murder, mayhem and one girl trying to figure out how she fits into the grand scheme of things makes this a fun and interesting read.  I'm itching to read book 3 now so I can see how things settle themselves.
