Tormented after a daring escape, Cora Sandoval must find a way to stop the Arrazi from murdering innocent people and from violating, using, and killing the Scintilla for their powers. She must also accept one bitter betrayal: Finn Doyle—the Irish boy who has both a piece of Cora’s heart and soul—is Arrazi…
On the verge of extinction and sought by those who would either consume or destroy them, Cora and the remaining Scintilla survivors must solve the mystery of The Light Key. If they fail, the truth will stay buried forever and mankind will pay the ultimate price.
No longer will she hide.
No longer will her loved ones be hunted.
And she will have her vengeance…even if she shatters her heart in the process.

"I'm going to open with a very bold statement: I think Deviate was even better than Scintillate!" ~ Marie, Goodreads review
"There's action, adventure, death, and betrayal. So many heartbreaking moments, I need the next book NOW" ~ YA Escape from Reality
Cora and Finn were kinda of annoying in this book... Probably because I like Giovanni... Lol but so good! I loved all the twists and turns this book has! ...more
I want to start off by saying that I did not read book one in this series, so there were a few things that I didn't quite understand at first - and, of course, there's a previous part to the story that I'm not aware of. BUT the author does a great job answering questions and giving pieces of info... ...more

This book has done it. It broke the rule of "sequels are never better". Because this book was incredibly excellent.
First, Tracy switches to dual POV between Cora and Finn. I so love getting to see inside Finn's head, especially after book 1's huge rev... ...more
MS. Clark has constructed a fast-paced, intense follow-up novel to "Scintillate" that keeps you turning the pages. Her main character, Cora Sandoval is engaging and as a reader, I found myself going through every up and down as this story unwinds through the highs and lows of her quest to learn t... ...more
WOW! This book had me on the edge of my seat and I kept worrying about Cora's welfare. Will she survive or will her enemies finally be victorious. There's plenty of drama and heartbreak, although my romantic heart hopes that Cora and Finn can be together in the end. Will it happen? Who knows. You... ...more
I'm going to open with a very bold statement: I think Deviate was even better than Scintillate! And you'll remember that I did enjoy Scintillate very much. A lot of times, the middle book in a trilogy can feel a bit flat, like it's only there to set up the grand finale. But not Deviate! Deviate d... ...more
This series is kind of different. I really enjoy it and I'm fascinated by the concept. This book definitely stands out today in a sea of sci-fi, fantasy, dystopian, and contemporary young adult books. This one is paranormal and that's just not a huge trend at the moment so it's kind of nice to ha... ...more
4.5 stars. Soooo good! Full review to come.
*ARC received from publisher via NetGalley
I loved this book and here's why:
1. Richly detailed world-building. In this second book, we learn more about the Scintilla (the givers) and the Arrazi (the takers). Light versus dark and it all connects somehow t... ...more

*SPOILER ALERT FOR THE FIRST BOOK*
In the continuation of her amazing adventure, Cora Sandoval is tormented and makes it her mission to stop the evil Arrazi from murdering innocent people and using and killing the Scintilla for their own... ...more
After reading the first book in this series Scintillate, I was super excited to read Deviate and continue Cora's journey to uncover the mysteries surrounding her people and their history, as well as to see what was to come of her love for Finn after he turned out to be an Arrazi.
There are so man... ...more

Wow! Even better than the first book, I can't wait to see where this story goes in the third book.
Deviate picks up right where Scintillate left off. Now we get to see from both Cora's and Finn's point of views, which is helpful we are able to see what the Arrazi are up to with Finn while Cora i... ...more
Wow! This book was shocking, gripping and pain filled. My heart broke for them, literally!
Deviate is in dual POV's. I loved getting to see both point of views. It was empowering, gripping and made your heart ache.
Finn-man... he's my man! I just loved him. I'm team FINN all the way!!! Just everyt... ...more
I fooking Loved it! If you haven't read Scintillate go get it now!! I enjoyed the first book but this book had much more suspense, action mystery and dang it I may or may not have cried.
It is a mix between sci-fi, dystopian and fantasy which is totally cool in my book!
I was on the edge of seat... ...more
A library customer got me into this series. I've become really invested in these characters. This book is much more gripping than the first. Great escapist melodramatic fantasy. Do you want to step out of your own mundane life for a while? Pick up this series. Go to Ireland; run from danger; figh... ...more
I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Deviate is the second novel in The Light Key Trilogy by Tracy Clark. It's the continuing story of a young lady trying to find out who and what she is, and who wants her dead. This story just keeps getting better! I've come to admire this youn... ...more
Tracy Clark has done in her second novel what not all can do: expanded on the themes and the mythology set forth in Scintillate adding rich characters (and new enemies!!) in new and intriguing locations. She releases tantalizing clues to the greater mystery throughout the book, gripping bits that... ...more
What a followup to book one! And I feel like drowning my sorrows that I have to wait for book three by eating something Irish. Sigh, all I have are soda crackers. I thought that Tracy Clark really put depth into her characters and the background story blending in Irish celtic sites. Bottom line,... ...more
Love Book 2 in the Scintillate world! Danger, romance, and luscious writing. ...more

Deviate surpassed Scintillate in my opinion, I really enjoyed it. I believe in my review of Scintillate I said something about it having a lot of potential to be a great fantasy/supernatural series. And I can honestly say I was not disappointed with the path that the author took with Deviate. I w... ...more
I can say that I enjoyed reading this sequel than the first book although I find the pacing a bit slow despite the alternate point of views but that is one of the reasons that makes the book an interesting read. It was kind of a downer reading this book because of what Cora was experiencing (and... ...more
