QUICKSILVER by RJ Anderson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

While at the library the other day my daughter found this on the shelf and gave it to me. It's one of those books I'd been wanting to read but had forgotten was already available.

So I borrowed it and was hooked instantly.

This is the story of what happens to Tori--the popular girl who disappeared in the first book--after Alison and Sebastian help her escape. Except, she's not really free. There's an obsessed cop and a lab eager to find out more about her. And then there's the other, more ominous problem: Mathis. The one who captured her in the first place.

That's how she finds herself living faraway and under a different name. Now she's Niki, trying to live her life while tinkering with electronics and designing some pretty cool, high-tech stuff. She even becomes friends with a co-worker, Milo. And when Sebastian returns because he needs her help, Milo also becomes her most trusted ally.

But when Niki realises there's only one way to sever ties with her past, it turns out to be a very drastic and dark situation.

I really enjoyed this story. It was fantastical, and filled with so much emotion. For someone who struggles with her lack of human emotion/identity, Tori/Niki sure turns out to experience a wide variety of feelings and compassion.

I thought this book was amazing. Loved everything about it, especially the Sci-Fi twist and the characters.
