One shattering event after another tests the depth of his relationships, his sanity, and his powers. Emotionally torn, Kevin must choose carefully where his loyalty lies. In the middle of all the unexpected chaos he gets the biggest shock of his life when he’s faced by a betrayal he never saw coming. Angry, injured, and ready to even the score, Kevin goes Static . . .

~My Review~

In Kinetic we meet Kevin Pierce, he is a teleporter who worked for the Org too. Static follows Kevn and tells his story. In Static Kevin is tested time and time again; everything from his powers, his sanity to his relationships! 

Kevin's character has definitely grown and developed, his powers too have become much stronger. He still possesses his snarky attitude; which I loved back in Kinetic.

Static brings new characters as well as some of the old ones too. These new characters bring with them new issues and new insights and attitudes too. I felt that these characters were more realistic too.

This was another good book full of action, some romance and betrayal too.

Another good 4* rating from me.

~Book 1 Kinetic~

~Synopsis~

Being strong is one thing. Being an unlimited source of power is quite another.
Genetically altered by the Organization, Annie Fox takes down criminals CIA-style with her luminary strength. With nothing to mend but her broken heart, she is relentlessly pursued by her boss Derek Lake. Just when Annie is about to give him a chance, her ex-husband unexpectedly comes out of hiding.A wanted man, Nick Logan is a cold-hearted murderer who is considered enemy number one, and orders are clear: kill on contact. He is more powerful than ever and threatens the lives of those she holds most dear. His plan? Get his hands on Annie and use her Kinetic energy to destroy them all. When Annie finds herself with an opportunity to end him, she pauses, horrified by the scars covering the face she once loved. A split second that will cost her everything...

~My Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy as part of the tour and in exchange for nothing more than an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Kinetic introduced me to the world of Luminaries; people with powers, they're a bit like superhero's. The main character is Annie; she works for the Org (the Luminaries Organisation). The Luminaries help out Government agencies to solve crimes.

When Annie's ex-husband Nick keeps showing up, the head of the Org; Derek; tells Annie that Nick is after her and her unlimited power. As the story continues it becomes clear that someone is lying to Annie, but can she find out who it is? And why they're lying?

The plot in Kinetic is good, for me it started a little slow, but it flowed and when the pace picked up it really did pick up. I felt as though there was occasionally a bit too much going on and it became a little hard to keep up with everything and take everything in.

The characters are engaging and I felt as though there had been a lot of thought behind each of them. That said I felt as though some of them were lacking the ability to feel real.

Overall I did enjoy reading Kinetic and I give it a 4*rating.
