Oliver is a great character through which to experience Mr. Pierce's world. When I say I compare the book to the stories shown in Inception and Poltergeist 3, it's merely because moving between planes of existence seems almost dreamlike in its quality. And the book comes to a resounding conclusion when Oliver finds himself trapped in the world on the other side of the mirror and a captive of his own reflection. The sinister reflection (who goes by Nero) wants to use Oliver's body as a means to live forever.
Susy Asylum is a worthy successor to Provex City, and those who like Inception will most likely find this particularly offering irresistible.
The main characters go through so much that it’s easy to forget that they're high school sophomores. Events that would break the average adult make Oliver and Desiree stronger. Their characters grow a lot as Oliver learns to face his fears and I Desiree finally lets go of her guilt over TJ.
The reader gets more backstory about TJ’s suicide which creates closure to his and Desiree's story. It's heartbreaking and if you are a little sensitive to the subject of suicide I would just skip the chapter titled TJ & Desiree (H), it's close to the end of SUSY Asylum. Obviously, the end result is the same just without the graphic details.
The end of the book leaves us in an earthquake that rocks both worlds. Book 2, Susy Asylum was a darker journey into Provex City. I enjoyed it and and am curious to discover what will happen in book 3 of The Lorne Family Vault Series.
*I received this book from the author for free in exchange for an honest review.*
The book takes place a few weeks after the first book ended. Not too much time has passed and the characters are just getting back into the groove of things after the epic inter- dimensional travel from book one. Okay, maybe dimensional is the wrong world. Whatever- I'm still using it.
Anyway! After some crazy teenage drama, the characters return to Provex City. If you read the first book, we only got a taste of the alternate... dimension. *sigh* world, dimension, WHATEVER. Anyway, we only got a small taste of it. This book is chock full of Provex City. (: A few of the nagging questions from book one are touched on, but there is still SO MUCH left to be answered. I don't know who all the bad guys are or who might be a good guy.
Susy Asylum still has the original paranormal, yet fantasy vibe we got from book one and all the characters from book one are back in semi- full force.
Some parts of the books had me worried. There was the small problem that a character I had sort of adored in book one began to grate on my nerves.. Don't worry, it's not Oliver. :D He's still great (well, yeah, for the most part). But I felt that after one slip up in book one, this character would reaffirm their awesomeness in my eyes. *sigh* I guess I will just have to see if they earn back my love in book 3.
The whole concept of this book had me freaking out a few times. I mean... an asylum? How cool/ terrifying is that? I kept picturing American Horror Story (which to be honest gave me nightmares. Aliens... *shudders* Getting back on topic) But man, there are some twists that you DO NOT see coming. *nods* So , Michael Pierce has managed to create an entertaining and well- thought out sequel to his Provex city filled with more action and creativity than its predecessor. But it still left me with so many freaking questions. O.O
And seriously? The ending? Come on, man. *glares* Why do you do this to me? WHY?
Rating: 3.9/5 :D
