Love this series! I was torn between Flint and Lena running away, or getting their memories back. So please with what they chose and so excited about what was revealed in their flashbacks!! Can you say exciting! Love how all the characters work together to combat evil. Excited to learn more about the new characters in the next book and how their futures will play out! I also love how Conroy's character is developing! I really want to know more about him and the loyalty that his 'staff' have to him!
5.0 out of 5 starsjuicy background details, lots of Flint and Lena, and the gang storms the castle to rescue other Forgotten children!

4.5 stars, actually.
If the first book, Forgotten, introduced us to the fascinating bunch of young adults who were experimented on by the mysterious O'Brien research facility with just enough tantalizing detail to hint at why they are broken and unlike any other youth you have met, this second book in the series fills in the details.
Lots of details. We get cool glimpses of Lena and Flint's relationship as they were growing up in the Forbidden Hills. We get flashes of traumatic memories from Lena of what it was like in the facility, and we get a lot of Flint and Lena together (and there was much rejoicing.)
We also get the gang exploring their new powers, and then putting them into use as they return to O'Brien for any remaining lost children. No spoilers here, but the end of the book has Lena in a seminal moment of coming into her own power and confidence, as well as the addition of a few intriguing new members to the gang.
The story does start off a bit slow, and sometimes, despite Flint's sexiness, I wanted Lena to be so accepting of his overprotectiveness, but all in all it's a minor quibble of personal taste. Off to read the next one!

Book two in this series jumps right back where we left off in book one. (The only reason this wasn't 5 stars for me was that it did feel really fast paced, but that may just be a personal pickiness issue, haha.) We get to see the group's background, as well as, learn more of the origins of Lena and Flint's romance (heck yea), as well as, meet some new and very interesting characters! It leaves you so excited to see where, and how, the series will end in the next book!
5.0 out of 5 starsTrust me when I tell you this is an amazing story!

There was nothing that I disliked about the book, except when I got to the end, i wanted more! I loved these books to see he point, I purchased the next one when I was done. I also had a really hard time putting my iPad down. Krista did an amazing job writing these books. Buy it, you will not be disappointed, I promise you that!
Finding out more about each character ( from book 1) was great. And the new additions at the end makes me look forward to the 3rd and last book in the trilogy. Sorry for being so vague guys, but I really don't want to give anything away. KNOW THE CHARCTERS ARE GENICALLY MODIFIED, AND NOT IN AN ORPHAN BLACK MANNER. Hope that helps
The second book in the Lost Children Series takes our eight children back to O'Brien Pharmaceuticals in search of the other children. Fast paced and immensely readable. Krista Street has an excellent writing style
