Roya Stark fought the battle of her life saving the Lucidites and herself from the monster Zhuang. Finding the Lucidites full of secrets and possible lies she is ready to leave the Institute and start a new life with her pseudo parents. But, the Institute and the Lucidites are not done with her and her powers just yet. Why does everything have to be so hard? And, why is she the answer to everything wrong in the Lucidite world?
Noffke’s second novel in The Lucidites Series, Stunned, picks up with Roya anxiously counting the days before she will leave the Institute for good. She has been overwhelmed with revelations about her life and seeks the comfort afforded to her by Bob and Steve, her pseudo parents. Her life has her torn between two very different young men of whom she both loves.
Roya’s character continues to develop as she grows into her new role as a member of the Dream Traveler society. Every bit the typical teenaged girl exploring her emotions and sometimes being a brat, or a prat as Ren would call her. The war between the Lucidites and another faction of Dream Travelers again tests and expands her abilities.
This book is very fast paced and a rollercoaster of emotions. I actually found it more enjoyable than the first book in this series. Again, this is not my genre, but I am willing to stretch my mind and go all the way to the end.
5 out of 5 stars.
