I've enjoyed the previous books in this series. This one, however, was not the same at all. It follows High School students in their life, peer struggles, with some supernatural thrown in. There was, eventually, a little interaction with characters in the other books. I struggled to get through it even though I could see where it would intersect with the story line, but, I was very disappointed overall. I hope the next book goes back to the main plot and people.
I am a "Life is Awesome! Strive to be Worthy of it." student of life kind of guy. Feeding on Chaos and Empowering the Good. Group Hug!
I was a little confused with this book, I don't know why I thought this was about Chris for at least a quarter of the way through the book. It was entertaining but it wasn't matching up with what I knew.
I should have read some of the comments before starting this book so I could put it into context. So yah! This is about Declan and Caeco which were the two kids Chris saved in the last book during Toni's rescue.
You could see a LOT of parallels between Declan and Chris, both were trying to hide themselves stay out of the spot light, both extremely powerful. Not on Chris's level yet but still lots of potential.
I got started using Audible to pass the time during my long commute for work and now I listen all of the time!
Same universe, but different characters. I like the overlap and the fresh perspective that this book gives of the world, but it still feels like the other novels.
Declan was the kind of character that I can relate to. He is a total techie.
Sometimes I had to remind myself that it is a dude who is narrating the Irish girls' accents.
I got the "Marathoner" badge on this book because every few minutes game me a question that I needed answered.
It was great the second time through as well!
Usually when an author completely changes protagonists in the middle of a series the decision is a poor choice. Not so with this book. It's a nice change of pace.
This book explores the lives of the 2 kids that were locked in those cells at the end of book 5. There's a bit of crossover in the middle of the book when Chris comes to save his goddaughter.
The writing and story are solid as always. In fact, I'd say this book is on par with the first couple of books of the series.
DO NOT SKIP THIS BOOK BASED UPON OTHER REVIEWS
It's not from Chris' POV, but it's still a solid listen even though it's kinda a flash back to high school so we can learn more about the new school/program Chris will b working with. ....good nxt step bk in series
I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.
I love the whole series. I've listened to all of them twice, now going back a third....and defiantly a forth.
"Dreadful Irish accents"
I love this series. Unfortunately this book is oversupplied with that dubious Irish accent that only Americans seem to use. At one stage the 19 year old Galway girl's accent seem to drift towards England and London. Kind of ruined for me. Since I'm actually Irish that crappy pseudo accent always annoys me.
