Twisted Reflections by Shay West

Genre: Young Adult, Science Fiction, Fantasy

Source:  I received a copy to help facilitate this review. The opinions expressed are strictly mine.

Back Blurb:

Alexis Davenport is learning to come to grips with her ability to travel through time, but she still hasn’t been able to stop the evil Drifter and his Master from trying to alter the past.

When she travels back to ancient Egypt, Alex gets a most unexpected surprise; she meets someone who can help her figure out how to use her powers, another Traveler like herself.

But can Alex learn how to control her gift before Drifter finds a way to stop her from meddling in his Master’s plans?

My Thoughts:

First let me say I thought the cover of the first book was gorgeous.  The second one is equally gorgeous.

In this sequel to Dangerous Reflections” which I posted a review on here, we find Alexis Davenport’s life is beginning to look up.  In the first book she and her mother had to move into her aunt’s guest house because her father deserted them and cleaned out the bank account while he was at it.  She has survived her first year of high school and being bullied.  She has a gorgeous boyfriend named Drake and her mom is actually letting her date, in a way. She’s not allowed to go to dances, she’s not allowed to get her learners permit, and she is spending a lot of time working for her aunt.  Her social life is beginning to go down the tubes. Worse than all of that is the Drifter is trying even harder to kill her. In this book Alexis meets someone like her and finds a way to travel to Scotland so that she can meet this boy and his master.  She’s after some answers since she has learned that she has no master.  Who is the Drifter and just what is his or his master’s ultimate goal?  I was really surprised by a couple of things that occurred in the book.  I was shocked by the way it ended. I flipped the page and realized there was no more.  Talk about a cliff hanger.  It was tied up neatly enough; there were just several questions I wanted answered.
