Nadia's Tears (Devya's Children: Volume 2) by Julie C. GilbertBlurb

Jillian must enter Nadia’s dreams to wake her from a mysterious coma. In Nadia’s dreams, Jillian meets several versions of her sister, including the elegant Queen Elena, fierce Naidine, and heartbroken Nadie. Meanwhile, Danielle must save her friend Christy from making choices that could get them both killed.

My Perspective

This is the second book in the Devya’s Children series, Ashlynn’s Dreams being the first.

Jillian and Danielle have returned home safely and are trying to settle back in to a normal life again. However Jillian is concerned for the safety of her other siblings who are still under the supervision of Dr Devya. Able to keep in contact with them through her dreams, she becomes extremely worried when Nadia becomes silent. When she finds out Nadia is in a coma and the scientists are unable to wake her, Jillian decides to return to Dr Devya to help save Nadia even if it means she might never return.

Nadia’s Tears follows closely on from Ashlynn’s Dreams. I found this book a little slower to start off with however there was a lot more suspense and buildup throughout.

Jillian is learning more and more about her ‘gift’ and she is continually putting others first before herself. You can’t help but like her. Unlike the previous book, Danielle really stood out more than Jillian. She has grown, become a lot stronger person and I really admire her character.

Again the story was written as many letters and journal entries compiled together as case evidence to the Devya’s Children project. It’s an unusual style however it’s clever and it works well within the parameters of the story. It flowed well and I was accustomed to the format due to reading the first book.

There were some parts of the story that I found to be a stretch in being believable however as it comes under Sci Fi, really anything is possible.

Nadia’s Tears is a great sequel that really builds on from Ashlynn’s Dreams. YA Sci Fi is not a genre I would usually pick however the Devya’s Children series is starting to change my mind.

I would definitely recommend this book if you like YA and/or YA Sci Fi however it’s probably best for you to read Volume 1 first (Ashylnn’s Dreams) as it will give a greater understanding and depth to Nadia’s Tears.
