I was expecting to not like this book as much as I did. Still, it suffers from being the 2nd in a trilogy. It also suffers a little from the convenience fairy. ( )

After her harrowing experiences in the Englisher world, Lydia has taken Korwin back with her to Hemlock Hollow. There she helps him fit in with the community as they prepare for their upcoming marriage. Just as things are settling down an untimely death has upset the community and anyone and anything from the outside world being blamed. It's becoming harder for Korwin and Lydia to maintain their secret. Can they afford to leave the relative safety of Hemlock Hollow?

Charged is the second in The Grounded Trilogy. The story picks up not long after the ending of book 1. The feels just like what it is - the middle book in a series. There are some great action parts that are fast paced and yet at the same time it doesn't seem like a lot happens. It wasn't filler exactly but it also could have used a little something extra.

I'm happy to say the love triangle is resolved rather quickly. Romance remains a motivator for some of the character's actions and it feels more natural, less contrived, than the first book.

Both Lydia and Korwin go through character arcs that help develop them. Lydia starts to become a stronger woman, learning to believe in her own strengths instead of being afraid of them. I liked the way her personal strength takes the form of a wolf in her mind. It was a great visualization for both us and the character. Korwan's arc is more subtle. He learns to find faith in something bigger than himself.

The ending leaves things set up with good hints for the final book to come. ( )
