My Review

I really liked book one because it was unique and well written. I think book two is even better than the first!! Now that we've learned about everyone's powers, it's crazy that Kasey's powers are going crazy. He tries to hide it but Blue caught on real quick. And they left their home for a new one but that didn't help. Until Kasey starts learning some other things, relating to his past. 

I loved Blue even more in this book and I felt bad for Kasey at some points. I love that they want to help people but sometimes you have to help yourself first, and this group of almost kids are awesome for each other. Supportive and caring. Loved that! And new magic and powers are coming out of those secrets. And there's still a few of the group I wanna punch sometimes lol especially with all the things going on. We've definitely got the good drama effect happening here lol. And some great suspense.  

I enjoy this author's writing style and I really liked this one. We've got more character development and a great new twist with the plot and I love Kasey so I liked that this was his book, since we had blue's book last time. I look forward to seeing the author create more fun in the future!! 4.5 paws!! 

 The Blue Effect 
Renegade Heroes 
Book One
Rose Shababy
Blue Brennan is jaded and bitter despite her pinup girl looks and quick wit. Night after night, she scours the Seattle club scene looking for someone or something to fill the emptiness inside. 
When she meets the mysterious Kasey, her world stops… literally. He claims she has the ability to control time and stuns her even further when he reveals his own gifts. 
Blue is inexplicably drawn to Kasey and reluctantly enters his world filled with a new breed of humanity. They’re misfits like her, blessed or cursed with powerful abilities, struggling to hide their differences from the rest of society. 
Then the group discovers a nameless, faceless sociopath with nightmarish powers; and he’s coming for Blue. She’s left reeling when they discover her gifts are the key to defeating his terrible evil and saving them all. 
Now she must race against the clock to harness her own powers and save her new friends. Can she be more than a renegade? Can she be a hero too?
About the Author:

Rose Shababy and her family reside in eastern Washington State. Rose grew up in the Northwest but swears she’s going to move to warmer climates someday. She’s claimed this for over 20 years, however, and has yet to move more than 75 miles away from her mother. 
Rose has a deep love of all things Star Trek and yearns to travel the heavens, as well as an intense desire to be bitten by a radioactive spider. Unfortunately she sucks at science and math so she hasn’t been able bring her dreams to life, instead living vicariously through books, comics, television and film. She hopes to someday make a million dollars so she can afford to buy her way to the international space station, but she’d settle for being able to fly around the world and leap tall buildings in a single bound.
Rose also loves to cook and worked for years in a gourmet Italian grocery and deli where she learned to hone her skills. She prepares culinary masterpieces for her family, but fervently wishes the dishes would wash themselves. Especially now that her dishwashers/children are nearly grown and only one still lives at home.
Rose likes to use her free time wisely. For instance, she likes to daydream, will often read for hours until she falls asleep on the couch with an electric blanket and a warm tabby cat curled up on her hip, as well as spending cozy weekend days watching Syfy movies like Sharknado and Mega Piranha with her husband. 
If Rose were a cartoon animal, she’d prefer to be a wise old owl or a sleek and sexy jaguar, but in reality she’d probably be a myopic mole with coke-bottle glasses.
