Catalyst (Collide #3) by Shelly Crane

In the third installment of the Collide series, we start off with Sherry, taken prisoner in the enforcement facility. The little bunker family must now decide whether it's worth the risk to try to save her or if it would bring doom to them all. Lily has started showing signs of her gift progressing, which may not be a desirable thing. And as Marissa starts to act strangely, Jeff must come to terms that there may be more to her illness that meets the eye. 
Daniel, the Lighter who shocked Lillian with his human emotions will reappear, but for what purpose? Will Sherry be rescued before it's too late? Will Daniel prove to be a genuine miracle? Will Cain be able to fully get over his love for Sherry and move on with Lillian? And how much more trouble can the new Taker cause for the rebels? 
Some will make it and some won't as the story continues...

My Review  
Wow - that was intense! I love this little band of rebels, including all the newcomers they continue to add. They go through so much pain and so much loss but remain strong through it all. Sherry & Merrick do such a wonderful job of holding their little family together. Sometimes their love is the only thing that gets them through it all; it is such a strong, powerful, consuming love it makes my heart ache for them when they are apart. Others are beginning to find love in the middle of all their troubles, too, and you might be surprised to find out who! It's also getting harder & harder to know who they can trust. They are learning that keepers may have the ability to be downright evil, while one lighter seems to have grown a conscience & has the desire to do good. My heart is aching for the next book in this series - it can't come quick enough!
