SciFi Book Review: Split Second

Split Second

Split Second by Kasie West

Addie has always been able to see the future when faced with a choice, but that doesn’t make her present any easier. Her boyfriend used her. Her best friend betrayed her. So when Addie’s dad invites her to spend her winter break with him in the Norm world, she jumps at the chance. There she meets the handsome and achingly familiar Trevor. He’s a virtual stranger to her, so why does her heart do a funny flip every time she sees him? But after witnessing secrets that were supposed to stay hidden, Trevor quickly seems more suspicious of Addie than interested in her. She wants to change that.

Laila, her best friend, has a secret of her own: she can restore Addie’s memories . . . once she learns how. But there are powerful people who don’t want this to happen. Desperate, Laila tries to manipulate Connor, a brooding bad boy from school—but he seems to be the only boy in the Compound immune to her charms. And the only one who can help her.

Following the events in Pivot Point, Addie has gone back to live with her mother with some of her memories erased. And just when Addie leaves to visit her father for a few weeks, Laila opens a letter from Addie asking to restore her memories – something Laila doesn’t even know how to do. The narrative jumps back and forth between the two characters, from their points of view.

Split Second had a lot to live up to, since I enjoyed the first in the series so much. Thankfully, this was just as suspenseful and exciting – even though the mystery didn’t revolve around a killer this time. There was still plenty of intrigue, danger, drama, and double the romance this time around. This gripping sequel was impossible to put down. The tension builds to a surprising, climactic ending that doesn’t disappoint. Unfortunately, the short series ends with this installment, as I loved these super-powered teens and their adventures.
