Small Things author caught my imagination and painted vivid colored pictures in my mind as I watched helpless to save anyone from what I could see com..Show More »ing. The story left me breathless and shocked at each turn of events! Something I simply could not turn my attention away from till the very last word! I was compelled to only think about what Shawn and Jenny were going to do next and the creature that lurked in the shadows. Entertaining, thrilling and just plan spooky. Guess the best part is it could all be true, has the author gained info we humans don't know... (Eyes checking my dark windows) All I know is I am holding my breath for the next part in the series!!! Go ahead, see what I mean, you won't be sorry!!
I had purchased the ebook when it was first released, but was given a copy of the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
Although I had ..Show More »intended on reading this a while ago, life happened and it was placed on the back burner. When I was offered the audio version in exchange for an honest review, I jumped at the chance. I already have the book, so it just gave me an excuse to finally give it a go.
This one takes place in the future, using the kids of the main characters in the first story. Except it also takes place soon after Small Things ended. Also, like the last one, there's a whole paranormal/horror thing going on. But there's also TIME TRAVEL, because why the hell not.
The lead into the story was not as catchy, and it left me confused for a few chapters. That was disappointing to me. But then everything started happening, but at the same time it all came together and I found myself really getting into this story.
There's a mystery going on, and both Ben and Katy are sent to the past to figure it out. And in doing so, they're trying not to screw things up with the past and also there's a whole lot of romantic tension between the two of them.
It was nice to see what happened after the end of the first one, and I found the way it was done to be amusing. In many ways, I liked this one more than the first. And, although this one has a different narrator, I found myself enjoying her as well. I think she really helped the story, especially in the harder to follow bits.
More drama, more mystery, about the same amount of paranormal, plus new characters. I did enjoy this story, and I am looking forward to book 3 more than I was anticipating this one... because this one ended on a gawd damn cliffhanger.
