Review: SHIFTING FATE by Melissa Wright

According to prophecy, Brianna Drake was born to save the world. The trouble is, she doesn't have the slightest idea how. Her visions should have given her the answer, but they’re beginning to shift, making the danger too unpredictable, even for a prophet.

If she can just help her sister restore their hidden powers, she might be able to stop what’s coming. But an old enemy returns, and he’s got plans for Brianna and her visions.

What neither of them knows is that fate has given a stranger one chance to find her. He was trained to protect the chosen—but if he fails, the future will crumble.

Oh how I love when a fabulous book has a fabulous sequel!  It makes me do a happy dance :) tee hee hee!  The first book in the Descendants Series, BOUND BY PROPHECY, is an amazing read (see my five star review here) and I've been salivating to get a hold on this baby, SHIFTING FATE.  It totally does not disappoint!

We start off stepping away from Emily's POV to a shifting POV that focuses on Brianna's story.  I loved getting to know this girl who, while being Emily's twin, is so different.  Then we get to meet Logan.  **happy sigh**  Logan is this amazing alpha male who is completely devoted to protecting Brianna.  The chemistry between these two is like fireworks!  Awesomesauce!!!  

The plot of SHIFTING FATE is intense.  It's a race against time, but the timing is so uncertain because Brianna's visions keep changing and her powers alter, causing even more trouble.  Brianna must find a way to free her and Emily's powers to prevent a horrible future from coming to pass.  While she is trying to accomplish this, psycho kidnappers, chase scenes and explosions keep getting in her way.  I love her tenacity throughout this book and I love how she grows to believe in herself.

My only complaint is that Emily's and Brianna's heritage got confusing for me.  As the mystery unfolds on who they are and how Brianna will ultimately free their powers, I got a bit lost, but I'm pretty confident that book 3 will clear these things up.  I'm crazy eager to see where this series goes from here and anxiously await Descendants #3!!!
