Tavia Michaels has discovered that she’s an Earthbound—a fallen goddess with the power to remake the Earth—and that a rival faction of Earthbounds, the Reduciata, has created a virus that is literally wiping swaths of the planet out of existence.
Tavia is captured and imprisoned before she can act on this information, along with her eternal lover, Logan. Huddled in a claustrophobic cell, they lose track of the days, their attempts to escape proving as ephemeral as Tavia’s newly gestating powers. But then Tavia and Logan are mysteriously rescued. . . .
They’re brought to the underground headquarters of the Curatoria, another group of Earthbounds that Tavia doesn’t fully trust. There, she’s told that she can save the Earth before it disappears. She agrees.
Tavia quickly realizes that she isn’t like other Earthbound, and as her abilities continue to awaken, they begin to threaten her centuries-long relationship with Logan. When Benson—Tavia’s former best friend and romantic interest—appears at Curatoria headquarters, Tavia will again have to make a choice about who to be with even as she tries to stop the virus that is destroying the world and uncover the truth about the two Earthbound organizations that have her tangled up in their webs.

Aprilynne Pike (www.aprilynnepike.com) is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Wings series. She has been spinning stories since she was a child with a hyperactive imagination.

Aprilynne lives in Arizona with her husband and four kids.From Booklist:
In Pike’s second in her Earthbound series, Tavia Michaels has come to grips with her fallen goddess powers, but she is desperately trying to remember the harsh secret of her past lives. Captured by the evil Reduciata, which has created a virus that’s wiping out the world’s population, Tavia uses her resurging skills to craft an escape plan. Just when the plan appears doomed, she is rescued by medical personnel from the Curatoria, the Reduciata’s rival earthbound faction, and secreted away to its underground facility. Tavia, who has been warned not to trust the Curatoria, especially its leader, Daniel, must also grapple with the knowledge that she alone has the power to save the world. Readers who loved Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games (2008) will find much in this series to enjoy. Tavia has far more fantastical powers than Katniss, but her struggle to choose between two lovers and her determination to survive so she might save others will ring familiar. It’s another thrilling adventure fantasy featuring a strong young woman pitted against evil forces that will have readers eagerly awaiting the third installment. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: New York Times best-selling author Pike will be on your radar with this highly publicized series. Grades 8-12. --Frances Bradburn
