The highly anticipated sequel to Under Different Stars, winner of four 2014 utopYA Awards.
Eighteen-year-old Kricket Hollowell was looking for her place in the world when she discovered that the universe was bigger - and more dangerous - than she had ever dreamed. Now, whisked across space to the planet Ethar, Kricket learns that her genetic ability to see the future makes her a sought-after commodity...and the catalyst for war between her star-crossed parents' clans. According to Alameedan prophecy, one house will rise to power, and the other will be completely wiped out, and Kricket's precognition is believed to be the weapon that will tip the scales.
A target of both the Rafe and the Alameeda houses, Kricket finds protection - and a home - in the arms of Trey, her Etharian bodyguard-turned-boyfriend. But her visions of what's to come disturb her deeply, especially since she must discover whether the gift of foresight will allow her to rewrite the future or if her fate is as immovable as the stars.

So. Much. Sex.
At Best, Cheesy & Annoying
The first book had a little bit of a unique story line...moving into this second segment, it felt like the author just wanted to write one sexual encounter after another. The lines were so cheesy, I flinched a few times. .Plus, there is some repetitive, yet bizarre content: multiple times in almost every chapter,, someone is picking up the main character, Kricket, and setting her on their lap. Or some soldier is rubbing her back. There were wierd fillers like that in every chapter (what the heck?). The content became more and more bizarre as the book progressed. The actual plot isn't too bad...but everything in the middle is painfully corny or sexually explicit. Every time the listener believes that they are going to find out what is going to happen (plot-wise), the main characters are stopping everything to have sex. Sexual encounters seem to be the priority, even while fleeing evil psychics, an entire enemy army (oh yeah, and full enemy occupation of their country), and an obsessively jealous, psychopathic suitor. Though I could compliment Amy's imagination, the execution of the storyline is poor, at best.
Probably not-her interpretation of the 2 main characters is partially why I found them to be so annoying.
Disgust...as I described before. It got to the point where the lines were so corny, I flinched.
Save yourself a credit and move on.
