Two Brothers: Heritage by Sofia Diana Gabel - Review

twobrothersheritageIn the second book in the Ramtalan Trilogy, Argus Dachel, a far-from-ordinary half-alien teen, finds himself mixed up in the battle between a hostile faction of Invaders and the peaceful Ramtalans he’s come to know as his friends. With his brother Tai held captive at the Citadel and disturbing news about his father, Argus has to come to grips with the truth about who he really is. Not only is the government agency, the Astronomical Urgent Recovery Administration, AURA, hot on his tail, but his relationship with his girlfriend Lola is in jeopardy. As his special abilities increase and become stronger, he risks exposure and capture. When the enemy closes in and the Citadel is attacked, it seems victory is impossible, but losing means certain death. He must find some way to protect everyone around him, but winning is impossible. Or is it?

My Thoughts: Two Brothers: Heritage is as much of a roller coaster ride as the first book. It is filled with aliens, government agencies, and teenage issues. It is a combination that worked out in an great way. Things moved fast as everything seemed to crumble around the twins. Again I found myself questioning how much more they could take. 

I've had a switching of opinions about the brothers. I ended up liking Tai's character more in this book, probably because he seems to have grown up a bit. He's still cocky, but it wasn't as overwhelming. Argus seems a bit flighty and confused. Still the twins together are an interesting force, and I love their interactions with each other.

This book is full of wild alien abilities and plenty of exciting technology. I loved the fast paced excitement, and following the different stories along through different views. I'll be really excited to see how this trilogy wraps up. I think sci-fi lovers will enjoy this book.
