Casey isn't human. The revelation should terrify her, but it doesn't. Instead it excites her. Too bad not everyone is as excited as she is.

Torn between two lives, the only one she's ever known and her life as a paranormal princess, Casey has to decide whether she can trust the man she loves.
Sometimes being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be.

I received this book for free from The Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

One Line: Every bit as addicting as the first book, I love this series!

In My Opinion: Add to cart!

Search definitely had a lot of key things happen that I was hoping for. After what happened in Soar, I was dying to get back into this world of Pterons and see how Casey is handling things. Ivy doesn’t disappoint, this book is packed with paranormal action, intrigue, fun moments, and a good amount of romance. I love that Ivy is able to grab your attention right from the start and keep you engaged until the end.

Things finally pick up for Toby and Casey, but of course, it’s not a smooth ride for them. As the truth about Casey comes to light, she has to deal with accepting the new people in her life, her status, and the fact that others are still out to get her. With all that aside, I really liked the way Toby and Casey’s relationship progressed. They’ve both been through the ringer with past relationships so I liked that they took things slow and you could really tell how much they care for each other. Toby has definitely turned things around and I really like his character.

Jared, on the other hand, I didn’t know what to make of. I guess because I’m on Team Toby, as much as I like Jared, it was hard to see him around Casey. Things are pretty tense between them however and he brings his A game to the story in being a major jerk, but no matter what, I liked how loyal he is to Levi and he really is a good guy. I didn’t know how his story was going to play out, but towards the end, you can kind of guess where Ivy will take his character and I have to say, I’m pleasantly surprised.

The mystery of what the bears want with Casey and what they’re planning against the Pterons is further revealed and even though not much real action happens until towards the end, I was still kept very entertained and happy throughout the book. Search is a great sequel and Ivy continues to be one of my favorite authors. She always leaves me wanting more and I never want her stories to end. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
