Although I had 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.
Absorbing. Grabs you by the brain and makes you keep on reading "just another couple of pages, then I'll. ...". Ya, right! Without doing the whole recap thing, the publisher's blurb is somewhat informative without screwing up and giving out spoilers. Neither will I.
The best part for me was getting the audio narrated by Madeline Mrozek! Anytime she is the narrator, it's a good day.
