The first in the series really left us wanting more and I really felt like we got a lot more guts to this novel. You learn a lot and I felt like I finally began to understand some of the story lines that I was lost on at the end of the first novel. 

There is a bit of a love triangle that I felt didn't really fit with the novel. I was frustrated with Kate because of it. I guess that happens sometimes when as a reader we have a certain way we think things should work out. 

I really liked the growth of the characters from the previous novel to this one.

I am so happy that you enjoyed SYMBIOSIS! I had a blast writing it and am excited to share a little more with you. The cover image is loaded with information. The background setting is actually Jordan Lake (a major setting in the book). There are two butterflies on the cover. In the reflection on the water, the butterfly that is the blue butterfly was on SCINTILLATE’s cover. That butterfly represents Kate and her transition. The white/black butterfly appears to be emerging from the blue butterfly. This butterfly represents Sarah. The body of the white/black body has 2 bows with an arrow in the middle. I used bows and an arrow for this butterfly because Sarah is an archer. I am busily working on the final book in the series. Please check out my Pinterest sight for a little insight into SYNCHRONICITY. I have a board with pictures that help inspire me as I write.
