Book Review- The Vision

I finshed reading The Vision by Jen Nadol for a Teen Book Scene blog tour.

From Goodreads:

Cassie Renfield knows the mark tells her when someone is going to die and that she can intervene and attempt to change fate. But she still doesn't understand the consequences, especially whether saving one life dooms another. With no family left to offer guidance, Cassie goes in search of others like her. But when she meets Demetria, a troubled girl who seems to have the power of the Fates, Cassie finds the truth isn't at all what she expected. And then there's her heady new romance with bad boy Zander. Dating him has much graver repercussions than she could ever have imagined, forcing Cassie to make choices that cut to the essence of who she is and what she believes.

Jen Nadol offers readers a romance with big stakes and an ethical dilemma with no easy answers in this riveting sequel to The Mark. Paranormal fans who love the psychological thrill of Lisa McMann's bestselling Wake trilogy will flock to these books.

I'm glad that I read The Vision right after reading The Mark, but at first there seemed to be some jumping around (Jack, the move to a diferent city..although it is explained later on in the book).  Once again, I really liked Cassie's character.  I loved how she was trying to figure out what the right thing to do really was, not just going off of the history of what she was told to do. 

And there were some great secondary characters.  I really liked Liv, her new best friend.  I loved her personality and how she was sarcastic with Cassie, but completely there for her.  And then you have the two new guys: Zander and Ryan.  At first, I didn't get what Cassie's attractiong to him was, but that's explained too.  I liked Ryan.  He seemed so sweet and eager to please Cassie.

I do feel that its kind of weird that Petra would divulge patient info to Cassie but it did make it an interesting side story but I wish there was more of a conclusion with that patient.

This book had a teeny tiny cliffhanger, and I'm eager to see what's going to happen next in the third book in the series, The Touch.

I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
