Sometimes being an outsider is the best way to fit in… Sasha Carrington has grown up feeling like an outsider, and her parents are too concerned with scaling the Lincoln, Connecticut, social ladder to even notice her. They’d be really horrified to know about the supernatural abilities Sasha and her friends Krystal and Jake possess. But as part of the Mystyx, Sasha has found her place. Now her parents have suddenly taken an interest in everything she does, and their timing couldn’t be worse. Sasha’s father wants her to become BFFs with snooty Alyssa Turner, who hates Krystal for stealing her boyfriend. Then there’s Antoine Watson, the boy Sasha has liked forever, the boy her parents would never approve of. But with the dark side getting more dangerous by the day, and the Mystyx’s own powers growing in unexpected ways, Sasha is facing choices that could affect her friends, her love life—and even her destiny…
My Review:
***There might be a few spoilers for Mainfest.***
As the follow up book to Manifest by Artist Arthur, Mystify is not a let down! 

At the end of Manifest we were left off with a cliff hanger, yet weeks pass between that and Mystify it's sequel in the trilogy. And changes such as the POV are seen. No longer is this book in Krystal's POV, but in Sasha Carrington's, Krystal's friend and fellow Mystyx.

Sasha's story is completely different from Krystal's. It's still continuing the story line as we find out more about the Mystyxs and the power they are meant to defeat. But in the end Sasha's story is more about love and her powers developing, than anything. Unlike Krystal and Jake's powers, Sasha has a physical power to transport herself to and from places. Allowing her to go places others can't in mere seconds. But her story also continues with the romance line that started between Krystal and Ricky the ghost. Only with Ricky's brother Antoine, in which Sasha has a romance blooming.

As Sasha's powers grow, and her romance blooms, eminent danger is approaching for the Mystyxs. And Sasha might be the key to solving their problems. Check out Mystify by Artist Arthur your sure to love this series and the characters in it! 

Happy book birthday also to Mystify! Its suppose to be released on the 25th of this month via the publisher. But in a newsletter from Artist it says the 18th! Which is today! So check this book out!

About the Author:
Artist ArthurI am the first born and only girl in my family, and six and nine years separate me and my two brothers. Needless to say, I was alone quite a bit. But being alone gave me plenty of time to indulge my imagination in the world of books. One of the first novels I read was a young adult series that traced the lives of two teenagers in high school, Sweet Valley High. Reading those novels I thought I could do better, and so my quest to write entertaining stories began. Being an introvert, it took me a long time to feel comfortable enough to let others read my work. How long? Well, the first person to read a story I wrote was my husband. Since then, I’ve been writing professionally for almost nine years now. But it was my daughter who encouraged me to write a book for teens—just one of the reasons I love her so dearly. I live in Maryland with my husband and three children. If you take away the opinionated teenagers, family drama, overflowing bookshelves and DVDs, my life is pretty boring. But don’t take those things away, since they’re my inspiration.

Artist Arthur also goes under the pen name for A.C. Arthur and has published several other books under that alias.

I'm really intrigued that this book is told from a different POV. I was underwhelmed with book 1, but I might have to give book 2 a try. Thanks for the review!
