The book starts off where we left the previous book. Back with Nate. However, we soon switch over to the real protagonist. A girl named Dana Fear. And she is a big reason why I rated this book a 4 stars instead of a 5 stars.
The book was good, no it was brilliant. But, the characters just sucked. I will post this in spoiler tags as it is a spoiler/might spoil stuff, which I don’t want.
The whole business with Jamie? No spoilers, but I saw it coming! And that is all I will say.
I didn’t like Nate in this book. I am not sure what happened to him, though I can guess that certain events truly shook him up. Still that doesn’t clear him from his actions in the book. Again, spoiler tags, I don’t want to spoil stuff, but I do want to rage for a little bit. 🙂
And frankly, I didn't expect him like this. Sure Nate has some bad traits, but he really turned in this book. Instead of liking him, worrying over him, I was angry at him and wanted to smack him on his head for being such an idiot. Poor Ada.
The mystery and murders go up to a whole new level in this one. If you thought what happened to Candy was gruesome, then be prepared! I won’t say what and who, but let’s just say, wow, this was one awesome and action/scared-packed book. Lots of scares, lots of thrills and lots of revelations!
The end of the book was fantastic! I really can’t wait to get the third book and find out what happens in there. Sadly, that will take another week or so (since I need to order it online), but as soon as it gets here I will read it!
Oh, there was one other thing I didn’t particularly like. The book felt a bit choppy at times. The language a bit off. Like at times it was written for older kids and then switches back to younger kids. It was a bit weird and I had to re-read sentences to make sure I read the right thing.
Still, I would highly recommend this book. This is really a must read!
