Scott Tyler is not like other teenagers. With a single thought he can alter reality around him. And he can stop anyone else from doing the same.

That's why he's so important to ARES, the secret government agency that regulates other kids like him: Shifters.

They've sent him on a mission. To track down the enigmatic Frank Anderson. An ex-Shifter who runs a project for unusual kids - as if the ability to change your every decision wasn't unusual enough. But Anderson and the kids have a dark secret. One that Scott is determined to discover.

As his obsession with discovering the truth takes him further away from anyone he cares about, his grip on reality starts to weaken. Scott realises if he can't control his choices, they'll control him.


I requested Control from Netgalley and didn't even realize it was a sequel until I went to add it to my Goodreads shelf. I had already started reading Control by this point and was worried I would be lost since I hadn't read Shift.

Not the case at all!

I never felt lost or confused reading Control. Kim Curran has a writing style that definitely holds your attention. She re-visited important plot points from Shift which kind of made me feel like I read two books in one!

I loved the characters in this book. Especially Aubrey because well...she's Aubrey. LoL Scott was awesome too with all his mind blowing powers but I'm for the girl power!

I really enjoyed this book. If I ever have time, I'll go back and read Shift. I know I will definitely be reading the next book in the series!

4 stars to Control.
