Review #143: Centre of the Universe- Belle Malory

Summary: End of the world?
Taking a vacation wasn’t what Kennedy Mitchell had in mind after aliens threatened to attack Earth. Although she’s happy spending time with her family, she begins to question DOE’s motives for sending her home when she should be training. Something’s up and she knows it.
Searching for answers, she turns to Phoenix, the one person she can trust…or so she thought. It seems even he has secrets, and the more she discovers, the more she wonders if anything they had together was real.
The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been. One keeper goes missing. Another is determined to destroy her. As if that isn't enough to deal with, everyday humans get closer to annihilation. This time Kennedy has no one to rely on but herself.
Hey, no one said keeping the world safe was easy.
Title: Centre of the Universe
Author: Belle Malory
Series: Twelfth Keeper
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Review: I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Centre of the Universe started right where The Twelfth Keeper ended. I must say I like this book better than the first. I enjoyed the various relationships that we get the learn about, it really helped get to know the characters better. I feel like this instalment showed more emotions and dealt with quite a few realistic teenage situations. I just really enjoy Belle Malory's writing and where she takes the reader. Centre of the Universe was a fast read that was action packed and filled with a budding romance!
Kennedy and Phoenix come out of their shells a bit more in this book and we actually get to see their relationship grow and hit a few speed bumps along the way. The only part that turned me off was that Kennedy could "suck face" with Hunter and its no big deal, but Pheonix and Fang kiss and its a deal breaker? WTH? Double standards. But I did like the glimpse into the different relationships, especially between Kennedy, her mom and her sister. But the best part of the whole book is learning about Nika's past! Now if only we could learn about the rest of the keepers before its too late. 
Not usually is a second book better than the first, but Belle Malory accomplished just that. Plus with that ending in a cliffhanger how could you not want to continue on with the series. I would recommend this series to all sci- Fi lovers and those who enjoy a hint of paranormal.

About this author

I don't consider myself a writer. I'm a storyteller.

My two great loves are books and coffee. If it weren't for books, my heart wouldn't feel as full. And if it weren't for coffee, I wouldn't know what mornings are. That being said, the guy at Starbucks knows me well. He sings to me sometimes.

I live in Orlando, Florida with my family and two rescue mutts. Their personalities are like night and day. One is gold. The other is black. The gold one doesn't like to sleep in. Before I've had my coffee, we are enemies.
