Let me start this review with a warning - if you do NOT like swearing then you should pass on this book. I would rather let you know right up front so you don't give it a bad review based on the fact that you don't like swearing. The swearing is part of the dialogue & it makes the story & situations more realistic. There is no sexual content other than the fact that there is something going on (don't want to ruin it) that does involve sex.
This is an extremely fast paced book that makes you want to read it at one sitting because you want to know what happens next. Sarah, the main character is very believable & gutsy. Four years have passed since we read about her in Dark Visions. She is still saving lives based on the information her dead sister passes on to her but this time she has had some training to help her get out of serious jams.
Her sister passes on some information that puts her in the thick of things right from the beginning of the book. Some of the characters are brought into the story from Dark Visions so that makes it interesting as well. There is no romance in this book which in my opinion is fantastic. I get tired of the two leads falling for each other in five seconds or less. I think it takes away from the story in most cases. Some authors do it very well but there are just a few.
If you like fast action packed books then this book will not disappoint. I can't wait to read the next in the series & am off to purchase the next one. Great job, Jonas Saul.
