Title: DAMAGED GOODS (Blank Slate #2)
Author: Jennifer Bardsley
Pub. Date: January 17, 2017
Format: Hardcover, Paperback, eBook
Synopsis- Blanca has everything she ever wanted, a hot boyfriend named Seth and the loving support of her foster father, Cal. She’s finally escaped the abusive control of her birth father, Barbelo Nemo, and her tortured childhood at Tabula Rasa School.
But the scars of Blanca’s Vestal upbringing run deep, especially when the FBI start asking questions. Blanca feels abandoned by Seth who is hunting for Lilith, Blanca’s only blood relative. The Defectos, a support group of Vestal-Rejects, offer Blanca comfort instead.
While the Vestal order crumbles, Chinese rivals called the Guardians rise to power and wrest control of important Tabula Rasa contacts. Now Blanca’s life is in peril once more, and this time, Blanca struggles to recognize friend from foe.
Review- Okay so recap of the last book. Blanca finds out her father is none other than the blood-sucking evil incarnate Barbelo and her mother is Lydia. Fortunately for us, the readers, Barbelo meets his well-deserved end. Blanca becomes un-brain washed and realizes technology isn’t evil. In the end, Cal gifts her her own chip watch. In this sequel, you find out about the Guardian Order, the Vestals rivals. Blanca is interrogated by the FBI. One of the Guardians, Keung, has been watching Blanca. What really bothers me about Blanca in this book is she realizes the Vestals were evil and still she is conformed to their ways and sticks up for the cult. If I was in her position once I discovered the truth, I would have cut all ties with anything I was taught by them. All in all, this was seriously a great sequel and I cannot wait for the next installment. Can you say holy cliffhanger, Batman!
