London and her friends are fugitives in a reprocessed world where anything New is illegal. But as Otherborn, they’re different. They can dream and create, which hasn’t gone unnoticed. After fleeing Capital City with an assassin on their heels, the Otherborn found nothing went according to plan. Now, they are down by two and on the run in the Outroads, but the Tycoons keep mysteriously gaining on them. And seven months later, London is no closer to her promise to go back for Rye, if there is anything left to go back for. But Zen is teaching London that there may be more to her heart than the pieces she left behind, and London can’t help but feel guilty about not looking back since they fled New Eden. Should she hold on to hope that Rye is more than just a memory, or embrace a new life and love with Zen?

In their race to outrun their enemies, one thing is becoming increasingly clear: they can only run for so long. Eventually, they’ll have to face what waits when the road runs out. Eventually, their fates will catch up to them.

My Thoughts: 
Astral Tide is the exciting second book in the Otherborn series. Silver picks up right where she left off with book one. Twists and turns are nonstop with this read creating an abundance of anticipation. London and her friends are on the run looking for somewhere safe and trying to figure out a way to save Rye. All along the way each character learns more about their Other and how to use their gifts in meaningful ways.  Dreaming has become an even bigger danger as the characters learn to create and there are more dreamers than London even imagined. Astral Tide builds up quite nicely to the next installment in this series. I’m anxiously waiting for the next book.
