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.

 

Earthquake totally brought its A-game! This book was suspenseful and action-packed, and at times, very swoony too! Aprilynne Pike did a great job at making this big story easy to follow. It could have easily become a big mess but she makes all the magical and scientific aspects easy to follow.

I still didn’t feel any connection to Logan/Quinn, which I was hoping to get more of in this book if he’s supposed to be the love of Tavia’s life. I won’t say what happens, but things get complicated when a certain someone returns.

Meanwhile the virus is still spreading among humans and Tavia and Logan end up in the hands of the Reduciata first, then Curatoria. There she’s able to work on finding a cure and in all kinds of things are revealed. BIG SECRETS! Though ones I’d suspected.

Action, suspense, and swoony moments made this follow-up a win!
