Taking Back Forever
by Karen Amanda Hooper
(Book #2 of the Kindrily series starts immediately after Grasping at Eternity with NO review of previous plot points, so if you haven't read the first one, you'll be really confused with this one.)
Maryah finally believes what the people around her have been telling her; she's the reincarnation of Mary, the leader of the family who "erased" her memory after her last life.
However, she's still unable to control her abilities and help her family as much as she wishes. She's especially frustrated that she can't help her friend, Harmony, find her soulmate.
When it comes to light that Harmony's soulmate is not only alive, but the murderer of Maryah's family, the need to find him and find out what happened becomes even more important.
Now Maryah must fight to find her memories and regain control of her abilities, while Harmony must find her soulmate, but neither realize how much danger they have put their family in yet.
Final thoughts: It was interesting to finally read the second book of a trilogy that didn't spend the first few chapters in review of the previous book. The relationships are becoming stronger, though the magic sometimes seems out of place. Maryah's new knowledge of her past is fascinating and I love learning about her lives with her. Harmony's voice is interesting, but I missed Nate's side of things. The book ends fairly calmly unless you read past Hooper's warning and read the first section of the third book. GOOD story coming there.
