Changed, Book 2 of Jean Booth's Origins of the Supernaturals, depicts how Natasha deals with the consequences of her choices from Book 1. After she left Atlantis and was separated from Raif, Natasha starts to experience several challenges. First, she finds it hard to control her transformation and has to request help from Stephan who happens to be the most powerful supernatural on earth and also a vampire. Second, she learns the full horrid extent of what she has to sacrifice to save Atlantis, and it is far from pretty. Finally, she finds herself falling more for Stephen while she's still in love with and mated to Raif. Considering all the problems she faces for helping to save Atlantis, she deliberates on one question: is it worth it?

Jean Booth takes readers into a deeper, darker world of her alluring Origins of the Supernatural narrative. The worldbuilding gets even bigger and reveals more amazing characters and abilities. Things also go differently as the romantic and upbeat mood is toned down for a more turbulent and gloomy one. Still, I was engrossed in the story as Natasha's agony and emotions are clearly projected in the book; I really hoped that Natasha and Raif would get back together. The major themes are betrayal, anger, torture, infidelity, murder, and sacrifice. Although the charm of Book 1 is changed for a sober experience, Book 2 had me hooked with the vibrant background and characters. Changes can be difficult, and it doesn't get any clearer than Natasha's story in the follow-up to Choice.
