Title: Earthquake
   Author: Aprilynne Pike
   Format: Hardcover
   Release Date: July 8th, 2014

     Tavia Michaels has discovered that she’s an Earthbound—a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth—and that a rival faction of Earthbounds, the Reduciata, has created a virus that is literally wiping swaths of the planet out of existence.

     Tavia is captured and imprisoned before she can act on this information, along with her eternal lover, Logan. Huddled in a claustrophobic cell, they lose track of the days, their attempts to escape proving as ephemeral as Tavia’s newly gestating powers. But then Tavia and Logan are mysteriously rescued. . . .

     They’re brought to the underground headquarters of the Curatoria, another group of Earthbounds that Tavia doesn’t fully trust. There, she’s told that she can save the Earth before it disappears. She agrees.

     Tavia quickly realizes that she isn’t like other Earthbound, and as her abilities continue to awaken, they begin to threaten her centuries-long relationship with Logan. When Benson—Tavia’s former best friend and romantic interest—appears at Curatoria headquarters, Tavia will again have to make a choice about who to be with even as she tries to stop the virus that is destroying the world and uncover the truth about the two Earthbound organizations that have her tangled up in their webs.

My Stance:

     The second book in the Earthbound series by Aprilynne Pike. I haven't read Earthbound, but I am a completionist, must have it all. I have heard rather mixed reviews on Earthbound, but I am hopeful. I want the series to be good, and more, but I have to read it for that to happen. While I am at it, I haven't read anything by Pike as of yet, which does make me a bit sad, but there is so many books on my TBR pile that I am not sure when I'll get around to one. I want to, just between my TBR pile and work, there's just not that much time.

     Tavia seems like a complicated girl, that or the decisions put in front of her and what she needs to act on is difficult. It is interesting to see a love triangle star in this book, but that again I don't know that one wasn't in the first now do I? :P It just seems weird, to possibly start one now, and not have it continue. However if you can recreate earth, and there are those who want to destroy it and start over, to what end? I mean if you destroy earth you won't be alive to see your fruition at all. I don't see the point in the motive.

     Maybe I am looking too much into this. I am not sure what I expect really out of the first book, but either way I am sure I will enjoy it. I need to get around to reading it, or I could do a Pike August Poll :P
