Alone and exhausted after her month-long sojourn as a shooting star, Solina Mundy flees to southern California to lie low, recuperate, and plot a survival strategy. The one person she trusts to watch her back is her best friend, Skyla Ramirez. But Skyla has been missing for weeks.
The arrival of a dangerous stranger and the discovery of a legendary weapon of mass destruction forces Solina out of hiding and back into the fight for her life. Solina knows she won’t last long on her own. She must find out what happened to Skyla and unite her contentious allies if she hopes to track down this devastating weapon before her enemies use it to burn the world to ash.
Arctic Dawn picks up right where Midnight Burning leaves off and thank goodness there isn’t a huge confusion or giant lag in time because that usually ends up being confusing. Granted Sol spent a month in a fugue state with no memory while she was possessed and out of control. After spending some time by herself our girl decides to contact the only person she trusts outside of Skyla, Aleksander. I am super excited about all of the development between Aleksander and Solina. It is so slow to come though so I feel like with this next book we will finally get a peek at what we are wanting to see between the two of them!
The plot twists in this book were pretty well written, I can say that although I was excited about the surprise antagonist I was sort of expecting it. There were a few hints here and there that gave it away. The world building is still decent in this one and the characters still have the same intriguing relationships as before with one huge change. I am seriously excited for the next one. So come out already.
