Morgan Cauldwell’s life appears to finally have settled down. However, for Morgan, normalcy never lasts long. College classes have begun and she should be looking forward to attending the Gifted Ball with her boyfriend, Chase. Except for her strained relationship with the Gifted Council, everything should be perfect.... so why is she still dreaming about her dead soulmate? And why does she seem to be the only person concerned with her evil Grandfather’s whereabouts?
When the Ball is crashed, Morgan’s worst fears are confirmed, and she finds herself at the mercy of Stephen and his traitorous sidekick. Can Chase find her before the ultimate sacrifice is made, or will it be up to Morgan to convince the two people who have never hesitated to hurt her that their plan is seriously flawed?
Exposed is book three in the Broken Soul series by Jenny Phillips. It follows Morgan, a girl with Gifted powers as she discovers her full potential and the dangers of being Gifted.
Book three starts off with Morgan attending college and getting ready to go to an annual Gifted ball.
The plot in this book is significantly improved from the first two books. There is a lot more action and the structure is much more clear this time around. There is a significant increase in activity and that made it worth reading the first two.
I found that the characters were still disregarding a lot of things that were happening to them. Morgan was doing things after big events that you wouldn't do usually, like going out alone after being mugged (not an example from the book).
The inconsistencies and grammar mistakes are significantly less in this novel compared to book one and two. We also get to see other POVs, which helped to mix it up a bit and learn more about the other characters.
I would have given this novel 4 out of 5 stars, except that the ending to this novel was terribly disappointing. There was a big (and short) fight, where people died, and the minute it ended, we got a quick wrap up of what everyone was doing a couple of months later. This was NOT a proper ending and just felt like Phillips wanted to get it done and over with.
I liked this novel a lot better than the first two, but it still left me disappointed. I hope the author takes the time to reevaluate her work because I think it could turn into something amazing. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
