Summary from Goodreads: 
 Seventeen-year-old Jaycie Lerner’s psychokinetic power surge is over, and her astounding powers are under control for the time being – sort of. As she struggles to maintain her humanity in the face of the awesome terror and responsibility of her abilities, she also yearns for the chance at a normal life – and a relationship with Matt Carter, the best friend she had to leave behind. But Matt’s got a few tricks up his sleeve, and he’s not about to give up on his feelings for Jaycie.

As Jaycie and her family grapple with the day-to-day routine of trying to keep their world together, Jaycie’s mother figure, Allison Young, endures a personal crisis of her own. The superhuman blonde possesses the physical equivalent of Jaycie’s awesome psychic power. So evolved, at ninety-two she still looks twenty. But what good is extended life when everyone else around her is so fragile? With no one to share her unusual life, she’s a uniquely lonely woman yearning for the romantic love she sees all around her. But in a dream she gets her wish – and it quickly turns to a nightmare for everyone else in her life. The memory of a rose is all she can hold onto in the storm of obsession that nearly sweeps her away.

Things quickly turn deadly for the vampires, but the Dey-Vah Guard fairies refuse to acknowledge there’s an imbalance in the nature they protect. As the danger gets ever closer to Jaycie and her family, the race is on to find answers before a secret plot can destroy them all.

My Review:
Unnatural Law picks up where Darwin's Children left off. Jaycie is still dealing with the effects from her power surge. She still cannot remember what happened and now has all this power that she needs to figure out how to control. Allison is having a secret relationship. And if that's not enough, the Dey-Vah Guard fairies are weakening and the vampires are being killed.

I have to say that I enjoyed reading this one a bit more than the first book. I really liked that Matt was more of a main character in this one. He really came into his own and shocked me with what he can do. I love these characters and how they interact with each other. There is a lot going on all the time in this story but the author makes it work. I loved all the action, bits of romance and where the story is headed. Oh and how Mason and John use their powers on Jaycie and Matt just makes me laugh. The pink hot pants scene was funny, you’ll understand when you read it.

I’m looking forward to reading the third book and any future books from this great author. This e-book was provided to me by the author for review. This did not affect my review in any way.
