In the sequel, Maggie learns much more about all the strange things that happened to her, and has to face new ones. She rebels against it, but ultimately, must face it for her new families sake and maybe even her life. Bish went from being her biggest supporter to her biggest pain in the butt and Kyle's intentions to attract her interest may not be so innocent. Caleb and Maggie face many new obstacles together and fight to work through them but will one that should be a good thing be too much for Maggie to handle?
I really enjoyed Significance and I while I was looking forward to book 2, Accordance I was wary. Sequels, especially second books, seem to never be as good as first or even third books. Something about being that middle child. In the Significance series, this is not the case. Accordance built up on book 1 and prepares the reader to be rocked and ready for book 3!
Caleb and Maggie flee for safety and get to spend more time together and get to know each other, they also have plenty of opportunities to grow closer to each other's families. They visit California and end up being "chaperoned" by Kyle and Maggie's older brother Bish. Have I mentioned how much I adore Kyle? I do. The big drama in this book seemed to center around the brother/sister relationship between Mag and Bish. Since Bish is being kept in the dark about their world it has put a large strain on the trust between them. He knows something's going on with her and her new boyfriend and she spends a lot of time worrying about how he would handle knowing. They have a close and well rounded bond and it kills her to keep such a huge secret from him.
Maggie develops some unique abilities and even begins using and controlling them in Accordance. A lot is revealed about her future in Caleb's world and while she might not be taking the news very well; it was a lot of fun to watch everything unfold. Maggie is extremely powerful, more powerful than is known for sure yet.
Everyone from Significance plays large parts in Accordance and there are additional characters that I am growing to adore; like Lynne. With the imprint of Caleb and Maggie and the changes in them has come changes to the family surrounding them and I am so freaking excited for some and sad for others. A lot happens in this book and there is absolutely never a dull moment. Maggie and Caleb grow closer and their steamy moments become hotter. I am currently reading Defiance and DYING to read the last book; Independence.
For readers looking for an intense paranormal romance with dramatic events and plenty of action this series is one of my favorites so far. I can't wait to see where the author takes the next 2 books! Shelly Crane has me hooked to Caleb and Maggie's story, what I'm really looking forward to reading about and hope is included in following books are the images Caleb see's when they imprint. :) Wonderful book 2! I am also looking forward to checking out Shelly's Collide series!
