Broken Illusions by Ellie James

In BROKEN ILLUSIONS (2012, St. Martin's Griffin), book 2 in the Midnight Dragonfly novels, Ellie James has our girl Trinity back in the thick of things.

Picking up where SHATTERED DREAMS left off, Trinity is beyond being the new kid with the weird psychic powers. The prank that resulted in the kidnapping of a classmate is behind her. Her romance with that classmates' ex seems to be blossoming. Things are finally getting settled down when a friend suggests they play with a Ouija Board.

Oh, you know that's going to lead to no good.

It's nearly Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and when the Ouija experience turns creepy, Trinity wishes she'd followed her instincts. Now her dreams are back, another girl is missing, and it seems as if the kidnapper isn't dead after all.

Trinity is pulled between her feelings for Chase and her feelings for the mysterious Dylan, and compelled to find the missing girl — even though someone seems hell bent on keeping that from happening and people around her are getting hurt. Could her dreams be trying to tell her something more than where the kidnapper has hidden his latest victim?

James keeps her stories cranking along, mixing in tension, romance and deep thoughts about the paranormal. I think I liked this one even better than SHATTERED DREAMS and by half-way through was having an extremely difficult time putting it down. By the end, the twists and surprises had me completely hooked on this series.

Luckily, we don't have long to wait for the conclusion. FRAGILE DARKNESS comes out the end of November.
