After their catastrophe with (agent turned serial killer) Locke last
summer, the Naturals had a short reprieve. They had a chance to solve a
kidnapping and rescue a young girl. But celebrations were cut short when Agent
Sterling arrived to take the reins to keep them in line, which means no more active cases for the team. But a
body was found in a university grounds, and the M.O. is very familiar to Dean.
It would seem that his dad now has a copy cat on the loose.

For me, to simply say that
KILLER INSTINCT is a good read is an understatement. When I read the 1st
installment, THE NATURALS, it had been my favorite YA Mystery for 2013. This series is getting better, and I have no
problem highly recommending it.
Jennifer Lynn Barnes managed to
keep every element together –the suspense, the careful fleshing of characters,
and even that love triangle I was not very keen about last time. I truly admire
her for keeping the reader at the edge of the seat and pulling up a huge twist
at the end.
A job well done. I will eagerly
wait for the next installment.
