My Review:
Through two books I have been getting to know Jake and have been looking forward to a book devoted to him and I was not disappointed in my wait. I have loved the Mystyx series from the first book and getting to know each person in each book.  So far we have met Krystal and Sasha so it made sense that Jake would come next.  I really like that the Jake in Mayhem becomes a different Jake than he has been in the earlier books.  I loved getting to know Jake even more in this book.

The excitement level is also ratcheted up a notch in this book as the series is reaching it's mid-point.   There is a lot of excitement in Mayhem and it made the book very interesting and hard to put down.  I don't want to give anything away, but this is a very good book that has a lot of action, adventure and choices that have to be made.  There is also romance and excitement between the characters.  The book is just excitement all-around and I cannot wait until the next installment in this series.  I have enjoyed this from book one and look forward through to the end of the series as well - Ms. Arthur knows how to write a fun and exciting series that captivates the reader.

One additional thing I would like to add is the fact that bullying is addressed in this book and I think Ms. Arthur does a great job addressing this very timely topic in this book with Jake's being bullied and how he has to handle it.  Great job for tackling this in the book!
My Rating:  4.5/5.0

About the Book:
A lot can change in a few months. Jake Palmer is living proof of that. In a short time, the once–shy loner has discovered his incredible supernatural abilities and forged a tight bond with his fellow Mystyx. What's more—he's fallen for his best friend, Krystal. And fallen hard.

Still, some things remain the same—like the jocks who keep bullying him. Even though they have no idea how powerful Jake has become. And while he tries to follow Krystal's advice, he may not be able to keep his cool much longer. But there are bigger problems ahead, because the darkness that's been hovering nearby is about to descend on the town of Lincoln, Connecticut. And when it does, the Mystyx will learn who to trust, who to fear and just how much is at stake…
