Review: Accordance by Shelly Crane

Accordance (Significance #2) by Shelly Crane

Title: Accordance (Significance #2)

Author: Shelly Crane

Release Date: Sept 20, 2011

In the sequel, Maggie learns much more about all the strange things that happened to her, and has to face new ones. She rebels against it, but ultimately, must face it for her new families sake and maybe even her life. Bish went from being her biggest supporter to her biggest pain in the butt and Kyle's intentions to attract her interest may not be so innocent. Caleb and Maggie face many new obstacles together and fight to work through them but will one that should be a good thing be too much for Maggie to handle?

My Take:
Accordance takes off where Significance left off, with Caleb and Maggie arriving in California for her protection against the Watson's. Just when they thought they have some time to themselves to learn about each other, Kyle and Bish show up to chaperone. Time alone is few are far between now. Bish is there to find out what his sister is hiding, and why everyone is ok with Maggie running off to another state with a guy she just met. And Kyle just won't leave well enough alone.
Maggie is coming to terms that she is not only an Ace, but that she is also a seer. She can read the minds of those around her, see into their minds, feelings, plans, even see visions. Sure it comes in handy when needing a few seconds to talk to Caleb without Bish learning of what they are, not so handy when all of Kyle's feelings are of his love for her.
One day Maggie gets a vision that will affect Aces everywhere. She learns the past mistakes of the clans, the greed and pride they held above all. She also learns the prophecy that she and Caleb are the ones to put an end to it all and bring back what the Virtuoso's once were, caring and giving people. But soon, with everything piling up on her shoulders, all the emotions and responsibilities just becomes to much. Will Maggie be able to live up to what her new family is expecting or will she let them all down?

Accordance is so wonderfully written with a story line that is unlike any other. It’s easy to lose yourself in the world that Crane creates. I felt the happiness, the unease and the suspense right along with the characters. And lets not forget the romance, ohhh the romance. Shelly brings back all those memories of first love: the stolen kisses, the dreams you have, the playful touches. My favorite thing about a book is the love story and this author knows how to deliver, in all her works. Accordance is a must read by a brilliant author. You will not be disappointed.
