Picking up after the events of Book 2, Willow and the rest of the survivors attempt a rescue mission to save the people from the shelter that were captured by surprise intervention from a military like source.

This series just keeps taking me on a bit of an emotional roller coaster and doesn't seem to stop! I was genuinely tearing up at one point when a pretty devastating event happened for poor Willow.
Willow herself has grown massively as a character, whereas she seemed a little shy at the beginning of the first book, and quite emotional, she is now much stronger, though still occasionally prone to an emotional outburst, though saving it for when other people aren't around.
The eye colour system for telling who has what powers is a really interesting one (though you have to try and remember which is which!) particularly now that Willow's eyes change instantly when she uses one of her powers, and other characters have cottoned onto that fact. I think that the introduction of the grey power could cause some interesting effects though!
This book left far more of a cliff hanger than either of the other two did though, making me really intrigued as to just what is coming next!

GUEST POST- AWESOME POWERS
If you had the power to choose any power you would want, which power would that be? In The ELE Series, the characters didn't get to choose the powers they would develop. Instead, someone decided for them. The fact remains though, that in a future world years after Project ELE ends, citizens might very well have the ability to choose their own power. How would you choose? Based on a power that would work best for your personality? Perhaps even based on your preferred eye color? Below you will find the author's personal choices. We encourage you to comment on this blog post to share with us what choice you would make.
Rebecca Gober- I would choose gold- the power of telekinesis. How could would it be to be able to pick up objects or even people with your own mind. Or throw a tantrum and rip a tree up out of the ground and hurl it against a wall. (I don't condone the senseless abuse of trees, but the act would make for quite a dramatic show.) Now, if I were to choose my eye color based on vanity alone, I'd pick purple eyes. Gold eyes are cool, but I've always thought purple eyes would be neat to have.
Courtney Nuckels- I would choose dark blue- the power to heal. Having dealt with my own personal health battles and seeing loved ones around me that go through similar battles, I'd want to be able to have the ability to heal them. I have a passion for helping others and this ability would work perfectly with my passion. If I did get to choose a color based on vanity only, I'd pick purple. Now Rebecca, get out of my head! (If you haven't seen many of our other posts, we tend to have a very similar mind set, which of course makes us great writing partners. So it really doesn't surprise me that she picked the same color.)
Check out the below eye color chart and comment with your choice and why!
