Earth Blend by Lori Pescatore

Earth Blend is the second book in the Blend trilogy and the sequel to Human Blend. In this installment, the mysteries of the Blends and Earthlings are revealed. How can Julie live a normal life when she is anything but normal? Her relationship with Austin is complicated by emerging abilities in them both. Trust is hard to come by as lies and secrets hinder them at every turn. Is the past destined to repeat itself as the Earthlings once again rush to save them? Ensuing chaos breeds fatal consequences.

My Thoughts: This is the third book I read with aliens living on earth. The first book was The Host by Stephenie Meyers and the second book was Human Blend by Lori Pescatore, the first book in the blend trilogy. They are similar by the fact that the aliens blend in and that is it. I am loving this trilogy. Lori Pescatore has me wanting to see how the story ends.

In Earth Blend, the story starts out with a little history lesson on the group of characters. I was captured in each history of the earthlings and the blends. The story picks up where the first book left off about 1/4 of the way there. It started out a little slow, but that is okay because it does pick up with the secrets that were being reviled. It makes you wonder what other secrets will lie in the next book and will find it's way out. Julie and Austin were dealt with life changing events in the first book that seemed to pull Julie farther away from him but not being able to. They need each other and they find out more so and I really enjoyed watching their relationship grow as they both learn more about themselves.

In Earth Blend we also get to see more of the earthlings.You get to see more of their abilities throughout the story and couple more characters are introduced to us. They might be minor characters but are important to the story. I though each character was valuable to the main characters. I really enjoyed the parts between Eli and Percone they truly are like brothers that don't get along very well. I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one. I found it to be a quick read and found that I am really enjoying the supernatural style books. The story was an easier read with lots of twist being revealed, solved, and opening up more options for the next book Julie's life. 

Victoria - I received this book in exchange for an honest review.  All thoughts and opinions are expressly my own.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
