There’s a man-made storm coming, like a rip in the world, and it’s called the Cusp.
Struggling to fit into the destiny she’s accepted, Nalena Maxwell has been left with one objective: she must find her murdered grandfather’s Memory. Stolen and hidden away by her own father over seventeen years ago, the Memory could be the key to ending the Cusp and destroying the Ianua’s rival community, The Fury.
Driven by each individual’s selfish desires, The Fury has always lacked the loyalty and organization it needs to be an actual force of power.
Someone masterminded the Fury’s massive attack on the Ianua, slaughtering twelve of their thirteen community leaders, the Addos. Now there are rumors that the 13th Cura, to which Nali belongs, has gone to the Fury, manipulating the last Addo in order to control the other 12 Curas.
As the Cusp brings the Fury and their own communities against them, Nalena’s Cura must preserve the Ianua, but finding the key to the Cusp isn’t as simple as it seems.
Keystone was a great sequel to Cornerstone which I had just finished reading earlier this week. I have my review of Cornerstone up if you haven't checked it out yet. Anyways like I was saying Keystone was very interesting. We pick up where we left off and everything from then on is pretty much fast paced. It doesn't ever get boring as Nalena grows into her powers and into her relationship with Garrett. Plus Garrett is in this so I don't think it could ever be boring. Haha but really the characters from Cornerstone are back and there are some new ones as well.
In Keystone Nalena has to work on training to be a Contego and has to also try to make friends with the rest of the Contego youth. The Fury is also back and better than ever which isn't good for the Contego. The Contego and Alo that is left work hard to keep everyone including the Addo safe. But will Nalena and her friends be able to defeat The Fury? And when everyone is a suspect, who can they trust?
So the action was never ending in Keystone. There wasn't a dull moment and of course the new characters added to the fuel. I totally loved Zane which we previously met in Cornerstone. The questions we had in Cornerstone were answered which was good. I loved how Nalena was able to grow and how she was determined to learn how to be a Contego. She knew that her mother wasn't there anymore and she still was able to go on. All in all this was a great sequel and captured my attention just like the first one. I totally recommend you check it out and Cornerstone if you haven't yet because you won't be disappointed. I hope my review made sense, I'm kind of tired. Thanks!
