GoodReads Summary:

An ancient secret has come to life, and everyone on the planet is at risk...

Two months after being infected with a strange retrovirus, Cassidy Jones continues to live a double life while she struggles to master her newly gained superpowers. High school has become the only normal thing left in her life—except for tall, dark, and handsome Emery Phillips, who shadows her every move, making sure she doesn’t reveal her secret. Then an overnight sleepover at Catamount Mountain Zoo takes a menacing turn, putting everything at risk.

“Cassidy Jones and The Secret Formula” was only the beginning for the accidental superhero. Cassidy is back in her next adventure, “Cassidy Jones and Vulcan’s Gift”.
            Once again, the brilliant cover art by Kelly Carter from Mad Spider Studio drew me in and had me excited to read the first page. After that, it was all uphill.
            Cassidy had me on the edge of my seat throughout the novel. She fought a huge snake, jumped out of trees onto car hoods, and dealt with a mysterious man in a silver suit all with friend, Emery, by her side. The action set a great pace to the novel and couldn’t stop myself from reading just a little bit more even when exhaustion was setting in. After a bit of sleep, I went back and re-read and it was just as brilliant as it was the first time.
            I was so excited to read the relationship develop between Emery and young Miss Cassidy. Although she still seems to have lingering feelings for a boy she had known most of her life, she is still gravitating towards Emery. If you haven’t noticed, I am 100% Team Emery! I can’t wait for their next adventure, “Cassidy Jones and the Seventh Attendant”, due out winter 2012.
            If you haven’t checked out my review of “Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula” and my author interview with Elise Stokes, take a peak here!


  1. LOL! I love that, Team Emery. I'll have to make Jared more appealing. Maybe he'll play the guitar in Book 3...:) Thank you so much for another lovely review, Lindsey. I really appreciate it. Thanks too for giving Cassidy Jones a shot. I'll pass this onto Kelly Carter. She does design a smashing cover. :)
