Adversary by Kate Kaynak - Review

Adversary (Ganzfield)

Again, what a start to the book! I am again amazed how well the author is captivating the reader from page one.
When the first book – Minder is finished, Dr. Williamson has created a small team to prepare them to fight against the enemy – Sons of Adam. Sons of Adam see Ganzfield students as abominations, as monsters and the Ganzfield team needs to learn how to fight back. The team consists of Maddie who is a minder, Trevor who is telekinetic, Rachel who is remote reviewer, Hannah who is a healer and a new guy Zach.  Zach is a charmer who is also minder, who can shield his thoughts. Complicated, huh?!!
During the final tests, where their abilities are to be tested, the team headed by Maddie has to leave Ganzfield and when they return an awful horror is waiting for them - their friends and co-students have been cruelly slaughtered. What happened? Maddie gets a suspicion that Sons of Adam together with Isaiah is behind it. Rachel finds other Ganzfield survivors not very far from the training facility. When they arrive, they hear a gruesome story. They also realize that two of the healers have been imprisoned and that Dr. Williamson is disappeared as well.
Maddie, Trevor and the rest of the team is determined to get the healers out of the imprisonment. And then the action starts again!!
Summary from Goodreads:

Things are more dangerous than they seem at Ganzfield, and not everyone will survive. Does Maddie have what it takes? See what happens next in the sequel to Minder.
Young Adult Paranormal Thriller
I liked the second book of Kate Kaynak much better! As with the first book, it was easy to read and the story plot kept me very interested.
Maddie was much more likable to me, especially because she was the one who hold the whole team together. I liked her High-and-Mighty-Princess attitude in this book. She was resourceful, brave, and curious to expand her abilities. She took control when needed and backed off when needed.
I liked Zach in the beginning. When he was brought in to Ganzfield I was thinking that maybe author is going to challenge Maddie’s and Trevor’s relationship with Zach, but that didn’t happen. I think Zach’s abilities are so far the most interesting ones and I would like to see him also in next book.

Generally speaking, it was very good reading!
