"the climax is worth the wait"
Steven Lee always thought that having superpowers would make him happy, make life easier, and make everything more fun. He was wrong. Steven, now 16 years old, has spent years living with the power of the Tiger. But now, on the edge of a catastrophe that could destroy not only Steven and his superpowered friends but every Zodiac in the world, Steven will have to decide just how far he'll go to protect those closest to him.
In this second novel of the Zodiac Legacy series, the dangerous dragon power only grows stronger within Jasmine, and Steven struggles to hold their ragtag team together. But as alliances become strained, the line between the "good guys" and the "bad guys" becomes blurrier and blurrier. And it all culminates in a major cliffhanger that listeners won't see coming!
