I loved the first book. Sadly, the second one did not live up to my expectations. I missed the part where it said 135 pages, so this is a novella, not the full novel I expected. The good: I got sucked into the story again because I like the characters. The bad: If I hadn't read the first book, I wouldn't know who half the team was or why/what they were all about and what their roles were on the team. The good: Beautifully descriptive again. I felt like I was there. The bad: This book took a nose dive for me at what I thought was the half-way point, but turned out to be the end.
*Spoiler Alert - Read no further if you have issues with that.*
I was totally pissed off at the end of this for several reasons. I didn't buy the "ending" and the gift/will. It felt fake and seemed out of character for such a careful man. I don't mind fade to black, but after all the build up, I didn't feel anything when Sarah and Vince got together. In fact, I wasn't even sure if they did and had to reread this section several times. What a let down. I didn't need the details, but I did need the emotion and that was missing. Finally, and this really pissed me off, this is a cliff-hanger. It left me feeling like I'd been cheated. It was written for the sole purpose of making me buy the next book. Good thing it was only .99. This is NOT a novel like the first book was - this is a darn short novella. I liked the first book so much that I was an idiot and bought this book and book three at the same time - please see my review of it. I really was disappointed.
