Sentient (Book Two Of The Mentalist Series)- Book Summary
Sentient (Book Two Of The Mentalist Series)
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?
Starting With Summary
Being familiar with the first book of the Sentient series, I did look forward to see where Kenechi Udogu would take is characters next and how they would evolve, especially Gemma, being new to her abilities and a father she never new walking in and opening her eyes to a life that would be and is more complicated than her own wildest imagination.
Before starting off on my readings of Sentient (Book Two Of The Mentalist Series), I first started my review and reading with the summary, a glance at what is to come and opening into a tale of a girl, continuing her journey trying to discover herself and Master her Abilities. With this Summary alone, we learn a young girl is going through a complicated journey trying to understand Abilities as an Empath, also has a Sentient Ability that links her to a boy named Russ. For people first drawn to this novel, there are just enough details in the summary to make the reader wonder what the abilities Gemma has been fated with and wonder how the story will play out. For any sci-fi, fictional reader just by reading the summary is enough to make you wonder. The only thing I would add a line or two in after “Unsure of how to handle her Sentient Link with him….”, giving new readers who may not have come across the first book yet what the link is without giving it completely away, just enough to give a new reader enough information to go on and understand.
Overall this summary will grab most readers attention, you find it will get even more attention from fans or those who know the series or fans of the genre. A reader familiar with the series will be more familiar with the terminology, but that’s also what draws you in the pure curiosity and wanting to know more and learn more.
To The Book..
To fully understand Sentient (Book Two Of The Mentalist Series) , we need to have a little background on Sentient (Book One Of The Mentalist Series). In the first of the series we did not fully understand what happened with the character Russ Turner during Gemma Colts first Aversion. In the Sentient (Book Two Of The Mentalist Series), we learn more of what happened and get a better understanding of the character Gemma and who she is and more about her abilities.
A dilemma relayed between two characters, Russ and Gemma, and the intense feelings that are felt. Gemma wants to avoid Russ knowing she is an Averter, even with the knowledge of Russ wanting to touch her. For Gemma a dilemma occurred, recurring nightmares started that seemed all too much real. Gemma also had no one real to talk to; she could not talk to other Averters in her school because they didn’t like her kind….
Gemma’s journeys goes deeper into her own ability and her relationship with her dad, and her only friend, and close one at that Russ. We also get a deeper look into Gemmas life and the journey and tribulations as she travels as an Averter and Sentient.
