Synchronicity (Scintillate – 3) by Karen Tjebben
(Excerpt from Goodreads) “Hayden is alive.” Those three words hurl Kate and her friends towards a mission unlike any other. While honing Kate’s Asteri powers, Kate and Alex delve deeper into their relationship as they untangle Kate from Sarah’s past. Zoe and Evan are entrusted with the task of destroying a magical ring and finding a cure for a poison that threatens their existence. And Nick is determined to locate and free Hayden from whatever monster imprisons her. Working together, their success will ensure that Hayden will no longer be a ghost sketched on paper, but a woman reborn to thrive in Nick’s arms.
Karen Tjebben lives in central North Carolina with her encouraging and supportive husband, twin daughters, and two hamsters. When her girls left for kindergarten, Karen discovered that she needed to fill her days with something, and that was the beginning of her new career in writing. She loves to create worlds filled with unique creatures that she hopes will delight and raise goose bumps on her readers. In her free time, she enjoys traveling with her husband and seeing the world through her daughters’ eyes.
Things are starting to get worse. After their last fight, Kate and her friends learn that Hayden is still alive and her glow is being kept hidden so Nick and Justin go in search of her. After a demon appears in her house and her father learns about her abilities, Kate and Alex head to the woods to start some serious training. Then it is discovered that the demons are using the fire powder to coat their weapons and there are enough weapons for an army to use. Things are getting tough. Are the friends going to be able to stop the demons?
You would think after the last fight they could catch their breath. But you jump right into the action. Kate is having a hard time adjusting with Sarah’s memories. She also doesn’t know how she feels about Alex although he is happy. I loved watching her get stronger and more confident. Watching Nick go after Hayden gave me the warm fuzzies but discovering all the fire powder weapons and the poor unicorns showed that the upcoming battle was serious.
I love this story. There is lots of action, romance, and beautiful imagery. I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next and yet didn’t want to get to the end of this book. I love this series and can’t wait to read more books from Karen Tjebben.
