Quanta Reset (The Shadow Ravens #3) by Lola Dodge (2016)
NA Fiction | Sci-Fi
“Quanta has escaped her laboratory prison, but that’s where the good news ends.
Life at the Shadow Ravens’ compound is a disaster. She’s drowning in visions of the dark pasts and darker futures of her fellow Ravens and is plagued by her own panic-inducing memories, but Lady Eva still expects her to “train” and “participate in missions.” Plus, the food tastes like burnt plastic.
The only bright spot is her genetic pairing to the brilliant Altair Orpheus. As their relationship grows, she’s positive that chemicals aren’t the only things drawing them together—although chemistry is definitely involved.
While they test the limits of her game-changing new ability to reset time, word arrives from Eva’s agents: Doctor Nagi is still experimenting with her DNA. If he succeeds in duplicating her power…
Forget the Shadow Ravens. The whole world is toast.”

Book One: QUANTA
pooled ink Review:
I was lucky enough to have read an ARC for Quanta and I love it. I was super excited to find that I was sent the ARC for its sequel and I am happy to report that it does not disappoint!
There’s a lot that goes down in this series and it can be pretty tangled and complicated to sift through with all the technicalities of Quanta’s powers and such but Dodge has done a really great job at keeping the story clear and easy to follow. Quanta’s first book really introduced us into her world and knocked me away with the imagination and detail behind it all but this book took that and unleashed it into the world giving this book an even more complicated set of factors and opening it up to a vast world.
The end of the last book left us with Quanta and Tair arriving at the Shadow Ravens’ camp and that is precisely where we pick up at the start of this book. What I didn’t expect was that major curveball thrown by Doctor Nagi. I really don’t want to spoil anything for you but yeah, that man refuses to be kicked out of the game. Maybe Quanta had finally escaped from his lab but that doesn’t mean he wouldn’t use everything he’s got to try and find someone to match her power.
As Quanta’s powers seem to grow, Quanta herself grows weaker. She’s destabilizing. We are pressed up against the glass holding our breath waiting to see which will win: the power to take down her enemies or the seemingly inevitable self-destruct that erases even her allies?
Plenty of twists, action, and adrenaline pumping scenes fly from the pages and it kept me captivated and anxious to know how on earth it could possibly all turn out. Really this book puts on quite a power show and I’m left wondering what could follow it.
Quanta Reset is an intense continuation of the Shadow Ravens series that surges with powers and a relentless shadow of doom. Determined, exciting, and full of surprises it only adds to the anticipation of what will become of Quanta and the Ravens.
