Crossing Lines by Lea Roches is the second book in the Crossing Fates series. It follows Eva Stanis, who has moved from Evanston to Westport to get away from her ex-fiancé, Riley, and has hooked up with Mal, a member of Westport’s Morai community. Riley, though, has come to Westport to take her back to Evanston, and she finds herself torn between the two men, and uncertain of Riley’s true intentions.
The first book in the series very effectively introduced the fate-twisters, the Morai, and the stark differences between Evanston (a rule-based community) and Westport (where individuals appear free to pursue their own agendas). The second book, though, doesn’t quite rise to the level of excellence I found in book one, with a shade too much overwriting. Despite this small fault, though, it is still an interesting read that ends on something of a cliffhanger after Riley is taken into custody by Mal and his associates, leaving Eva undecided about her future.
This has all the.makings of an interesting series. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. I give this one three and a half stars.
