Overview

Eleven months after saving herself from an obsessed killer, Gypsy Shields is enjoying her normal life again-or what passes for normal for a psychic. Abruptly, her new found peace is disturbed by a strange vision. An eerie little girl named Isabella appears before a rocking cradle with disturbing news. Connor, Gypsy's boyfriend, is a Sentinel meant to protect her and other psychics. But can he protect his own niece when she's put in danger by someone she trusts? Connor's family has too many painful secrets, and Gypsy's already meddled with them too much. Now they won't heed her warnings. Trying to rescue them regardless will strain Gypsy's relationship with every one of them-including Connor himself. Even if, with Isabella's help, she can save an innocent woman's life, she may lose the love of her own.

I was invited to read this book by the author, since I had read and reviewed book one in this series, Gypsy Hunted.  I remember liking the book, though I had some issues with it. Mainly the inconsistencies in the character and the time sequences in the book. I am happy to report, that in this book, those problems were corrected. This book takes place 11 months following the end of Gypsy Hunted. Gypsy and Conner are living together, but the focus of this book isn't on their relationship. It's on Connor's niece Christie and her attempted murderer. Gypsy and Conner's relationship is strained because of the consequences Gypsy takes when Christie is in the hospital. I would have like to have found out more about Connor's gift of Sentinel. It has been hinted at and glossed over. Of course, he is in denial about his gift, so that is part of it, but it's still an unclear idea. The time sequences were more spelled out in this book than the last. However if you aren't paying attention, you could still get confused. The story doesn't run in a strictly linear fashion. When a scene breaks with one character, in many instances time rewinds to show another. So paying noting the dates and times listed at the top of each section are vital to know when you are in the story. Overall, I think this book was an improvement over the last book. It could probably be read as a stand alone, but to really understand everything that Gypsy and Conner went through to get where they are, I recommend book one first. I don't remember it being spelled out that the story is set in Australia and I would really have liked to see some more local color added to the story. As it was, it could have taken place in most any large town or small city.  I gave this book 3 stars on Goodreads. Thanks to the author for the opportunity to read and review this book.

There were a couple confusing spots. One was where Jake goes to the door and finds Ryan and Conner on the porch, then we find out it's only Ryan. These kind of things would have been caught by a proof reader. Since I always proofread everything this was very distracting to me. The 5 ?s was for the enjoyable story and that I didn't want to put it down.

A good book like the first in the series and an improvement. Just a couple of things that just don't seem to fit the characters.

Gypsy Cradle by Andrea Drew is book two in the Gypsy Medium Series but it can be read as a stand alone book. I personally don't know why you would want to though since book one (Gypsy Hunted) was a good book and you will miss a lot of how they got to where they are in book two but what you need to know from the first book is mentioned in this book so it does make sense even if you didn't read book one. The author wrote a great description of the book which you can read for yourself so I will not recap the story other than to say that this fictional, psychic paranormal thriller does have some foul language (but not much) so those easily offended may wish to pass on reading this. I found the plot of the book was well thought out and I enjoyed the new characters. I felt they were developed enough so they were not flat although I wished there was more about Isabella and Connor's gifts but as I said above, this is a series so I expect there will be more in the next book. The main characters were all developed a bit more and I found them interesting and enjoyed reading about their gifts. The timeline in the book was more consistent in this book although the need to pay attention to the dates and times is sort of distracting. The chapters do jump from one set of characters and setting to others and it may have went back in time from what was happening in the previous chapter. By this I mean the chapter I just read could be taking place on January 20th but the next chapter takes place at on January 19th. Granted, that these jumps are new characters within their setting and not the same characters as the previous chapter and I know the author was just trying to keep everyone in the same time frame but it leads to some choppiness in the story and if I wasn't paying attention to it, maybe a little confusing. I found that as I got into the story, the dates and times were less important since it flowed more easily and when I looked at the book as a whole, it did follow what I perceived as a consistent timeline. So to sum it up, I thought the book was good and enjoyed to the plot, characters, and the thrill. *I received a free copy for an honest review.
