My Review:

I really enjoyed this book.  I loved The Pyxis and was eagerly awaiting this book and I was not disappointed.  You all know how I get when I am excited... I am going to try really hard not to bounce around and be incoherent, but I'm making no promises! =)
 Now... Where do I start?!  I love these characters.  I love Mason - COMPLETELY!  I also love to hate love triangles!  Ok - enough about that...  I am afraid I am going to spoil this for you all so I don't really want to say too much!  I am too excited about the book.  I think I'm going to have to come back later when I can think rationally about this book and EVERYTHING that happens in it!  It is so full of events and action and OMG!!  You all are going to love it so much!
That's all I'm telling you... because like I said - I don't want to spoil it for you!
Go read it - RIGHT NOW - what are you waiting on?!

Excerpt from Alight: The Peril (Pyxis Series Book 2) by K.C. Neal

In this excerpt, Corinne and Mason get their first glimpse of an enemy that’s much more powerful than they’d realized.


“I seriously need to get a grip on my thought projection,” I said.
Mason grinned and eased his arm around my shoulders. “Oh, I don’t know. I’m kind of digging all this access to your leaky brain.”
“Jerk,” I said, and I pushed his shoulder. He stumbled half a step sideways and laughed, a deep rumble in his chest. I bit my lips to hide a smile.
Mason’s laughter died mid-chuckle, and he halted with an abrupt scrape of his Chuck Taylors against the sidewalk. As I turned to ask him why he stopped, he clamped his hands against his temples and bent at the waist.
“What’s wrong?” I grabbed his forearm and leaned over next to him to peer into his eyes, but his eyelids squeezed shut, and his face twisted in pain. What is it?
He groaned and swayed. My heart punched a fear-driven tempo in my chest, and I clasped his shoulders, trying to steady him.
Then, everything around us went dark. My gaze shot to the sky. All I saw was a swath of stars. My feet shifted and I realized the ground beneath me had some give to it—sand?—just as Mason called out in pain and fell to his knees.
“She’s in my mind,” he said through clenched teeth.
“Who?!” I squinted in the dim light, trying to make out anything around us. Was that a picnic table?
Fear and confusion gripped my stomach as realization hit: we stood on the beach at the cove. How could this be?
I blinked, and when I opened my eyes, sunlight streamed over me with painful intensity. I shielded my face against the sudden brightness and looked down, trying to let my eyes adjust.
Concrete. I’d returned to the sidewalk, Mason on his knees at my feet. I knelt next to him. He drew a couple of ragged breaths and his eyes met mine.
“What happened?” My voice trembled.
“She was in there. . . . She blocked you out of my mind.” Mason shuddered and then straightened slowly. I stood up with him.
“I did feel like I lost you.” I licked my dry lips. “And I don’t know how, but we were at the cove for a few seconds.”
Mason closed his eyes for a second and shook his head. “Yeah, I saw the change. Like we blinked into a different dimension.”
“But who did that to you?”
“Green eyes . . . from my dreams.” He scrubbed one hand through his hair.
“Harriet.” I barely managed to choke out the name. “It had to be.”
