Summary from Goodreads: 
 Decisions Decisions….
Nahla and Gideon say good bye to the first part of their journey to begin a new life together, their hearts set on finding the other seven gifts. Their honeymoon begins in a whirlwind of unexpected events, the first being the surprising arrival of what turns out to be Nahla’s sister, Rilyn–her parents biological daughter. Even more surprising was how she came to be accompanied by the newest member of their group, her adoptive brother Levi. It wasn’t in the plan to start the search so soon, but there were now four of them, and with the added gift of prophecy and the gift of knowledge, they couldn’t sit back and ignore Rilyn’s mysterious dreams.

“Death to the Infidels!” Was the clue they had to go on and it wasn’t much. Could they trust Nahla’s parents enough to introduce them to the daughter they’d never known? Would a newly changed Rilyn be able to fly sufficiently enough to make the journey with them? Somewhere deep in South Africa, Arulan & Osiah unknowingly waited to be found. Keepers of the gift to speak many tongues and the gift to interpret many tongues, revenge was what swirled within their auras. Outcast their entire lives, one thing they knew how to do was fight.

My Review:
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, The Gifts. When I got a chance to read this one I wasn't sure what to expect. It's a fast paced fantasy that I didn't want to put down.

In this sequel the story picks up where The Gifts left off. Nahla and Gideon get married and move away from the tribe to start their life together. It's not long after they get to their new home that their plans are interrupted by two gifts, Rilyn and Levi. It starts to get interesting here when they realize that Rilyn is actually Nahla's parents biological daughter. Together they decide to set off on another adventure, this time to South Africa to try and find the remaining gifts. It's here that they discover brothers Arulan and Osiah. They all have some interesting gifts but I'm not going to spoil it for you by telling you.

I enjoyed meeting all the new characters and getting to learn a little about each one of them. The characters and the story itself are becoming more interesting to read as the story goes on. This one has it all, action, adventure and lots of romance. There are some adult sex scenes throughout, nothing to graphic though. Overall this is a great sequel and I am looking forward to starting the final book in this trilogy. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
