O’Brien does it again with this original and creative novel that really makes you stop and think. Her smooth style and captivating voice will keep you hooked while you go on an original and haunting adventure with the main character. There is a feeling of darkness that underlies this novel, creating a chilling backdrop for this intriguing novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed the manner in which O’Brien continues to develop the characters that we’ve previously met. No one remains stagnant throughout the novel. At the same time, none of the characters undergo a magical shift in personality or beliefs. She also introduces us to some new characters that we get to know quite well. All of her characters are so unique yet realistic that you can’t help but want to get to know them better and to see what happens to them next.
This was a captivating read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others, although, this novel does follow quite closely after the first novel in the series so I would suggest reading the series in order.
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel to Emerald O'Brien's debut novel. The story follows the lives of the Patrick sisters and their new friends as they adjust to the changes brought about by the trauma experienced in the first book. Just when they think their lives will return to normal, the nightmare returns. A killer stalks them once again, but why? It's a riveting, suspense-filled read, leading to a satisfying conclusion.
