Sentient (The Mentalist Series #2) - Review

Hello and HAPPY MONDAY!!!

Sentient is book two in the series written by the lovely Kenechi. I had the chance to be a BETA reader for this book (I was a Beta for the first too). I like the way the story is heading and I can't wait for the next book.
Here is my review for book one: HERE.

Sentient (The Mentalist Series #2) 
by Kenechi Udogu
Sentient (The Mentalist Series, #2)
Mastering her Progressive Empath abilities isn’t going as well as Gemma hoped. In fact, months after finding out what she really is, she still has no clue what this truly means. All she can do is wait to see if any new abilities will eventually manifest. Things aren’t going great with Russ either. Unsure of how to handle her Sentient Link with him, she tries to integrate herself in his busy social life but struggles to adjust to her new circumstances.

When she is plagued by recurring nightmares, Gemma realises things are changing and knows she has to do something, fast. The arrival of two sets of strangers in town, both offering the much needed assistance she needs to unearth her powers, escalates the situation even further. Gemma attempts to decipher whose intentions are genuine, but does she have enough time to figure out who has her best interest at heart?





My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sentient brings back Gemma to Sandes, this time alone because her father is out there looking for clues and information about what it means to be a Sentient twin. With more powers to discover, a new threat and the intense attraction for Russ, is no easy to be a simple teenager girl.

This book shows us other sides of the characters and we finally get to know them a bit more. Gemma is still a very likeable character. She is very mature and focused for a girl of her age, however, she has moments of insecurity, doubt and fear which is understandable because she is just a young girl fighting alone with the unknown. Russ is her rock, she holds on to him when things get too rough but at the same time she does everything and anything to protect him. He is the perfect companion for her and just as Gemma he is very mature for his age.

The chemistry between the characters is very sweet and is good to explore their relationship. Gemma’s reservations towards Russ feelings are for me what make the story real. When you are a teenager, you question everything around you and I think the author makes a great work writing about this aspect of the characters.

The story moves fast and with a steady rhythm, there is a lot of action and surprises with every new chapter. Every new character is refreshing, some of them bring new powers and more information about a world we are still discovering.

The author creates a solid, enjoyable and complete world but she unravels it piece by piece. The mystery about this paranormal world is always present and you can never have enough.

Overall, Sentient is a great sequel. Full of the action and drama we love in a YA book, with romance and revelations. This book only makes us eager for more.

  1. Nice review! I don't know whether I would want to be a sentient though. I have already too much feels, and having more feelings on account of others might make me erupt into a gooey mess!


Thanks for your comment!!!
