It also focuses on Cassidy's journey and how she deals with her new gifts - very well done.
A recommended read for those who love well written adventures with superheroes and suspense.
While the first adventure left Cassidy with super human strength senses and agility due to a lab accident, in Vulcan's Gift, she is honing in on those abilities, learning to manage herself and her ever changing emotions due to the accident, and most importantly, keeping it all a secret from everyone other than genius boy, Emery, and his scientist mother.
As in her first book, Elise Stokes proves herself to be a master of suspense for tweens and teens with her ability to unfold a mystery with shocking twists and unexpected turns, all the while entertaining the reader with story lines of high school drama, relationships and pending romance. Stokes has created the perfect amateur crime solving duo with Cassidy and Emery and when circumstance throws Cassidy and Emery into another adventure of crime solving, they are not only tracking tigers and the person responsible for its escape, but they are hot on the trail to solving a murder.
Not only is the suspense portion of the story well crafted, but the life experiences of Cassidy are interesting and the relationship between Cassidy and Emery is both tender and tense.Read more ›

Review: Elise Stokes has done it again, and this time she has truly gone above and beyond. After reading her first 'Cassidy Jones' book I had already fallen in love with the characters and their ability to amuse and delight me. I can say now with acute honesty that I look forward to Cassidy's adventures to continue for years to come. This is by far turning out to be one of the most amazing and well-written, middle grade to young adult series I have ever read.
Elise's execution of character development carries a perfection that is not easy for a lot of writers to obtain within two books alone. She writes in such a way that allows her characters to grow at the perfect pace. I can't imagine anyone young or old not falling for this rewarding series. There is never a dull moment in the world of Cassidy Jones. If you truly want to buy a book series you and your kids will enjoy I encourage you to pick up both Elise Stokes' books. "Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula" and "Cassidy Jones and Vulcan's Gift." You will not want to miss out on a single moment of this magnificent series.
In this dynamic sequel, Cassidy and her ever-present bodyguard/best friend, Emery, are on the trail of a person that could be supremely dangerous having found an item of great power. When what should be a quiet and fun sleepover at the Catamount Zoo turns into a frightening and potentially deadly evening, Cassidy and Emery begin to suspect that the well-to-do family that owns the place may have more secrets than animals in cages.Read more ›
Read this book, but read the first in the series first, just because it will enhance your enjoyment of the second book. Stokes has a deft hand at characterization and the circumstances she puts Cassidy in are both scary and fun. I'm looking forward to the next one.
Like any typical teenager, coping with changes in their bodies and surging emotions is hard enough but Cassidy has to come to terms with being super human and controlling the changes and urges that come with such power. She has her trusty friend and guardian angel in the form of Emery whose mother is still trying to figure out the impact of the lab accident. Cassidy is not alone but is in many ways because only she is changed by the lab accident and having to hide this from her family and friends is increasingly difficult for her.
There is no one like her or is there? Cassidy has to face another being of super strength that uses their powers for evil. With a tiger on the loose, Cassidy and Emery must work together to figure out how and why the incident took place meanwhile discovering a much more sinister plot is afoot.
I highly recommend this book and indeed the entire series because the character of Cassidy Jones is fantastic and you'll be willing her to succeed. It's been a long time since I have found a series that draws you in right from the start, leaving you desperate for more, and written with fantastic skill and style and tons of action. There is an underlying 'will they, won't they' romance potential, brilliantly intertwined with expert, visually-written action and plot twists, that will keep you on the edge of your seat! I cannot wait to read Cassidy Jones and the Seventh Attendant.
A must read series.
