This series is the first read by this author. It was hooked from the beginning. Really enjoyed the characters (really hated the bad guy). Can’t wait or next book in the series.
Within the first few pages, after the recap, the story presented is impossible. Simply unimaginable and quite frightening. If you weren’t frightened then you weren’t paying attention. The story is then made even worse and more impossible, as all good stories do. I was very much afraid that there would be an “act of god” to unscramble this nightmare but no. Isla Frost is simply amazing and thread by thread solved the impossible. I’m now a fan for life.
This is a fun, very swift paced sequel to the first book. Made me laugh out loud and covered a lot of moral issues that need a lot more consideration. Fast read.
Ok so I loved book one, however… the middle of this book gets really slow. All of the compulsion’s became a bit boring. I found myself having to put the book down and having to hope it would get more interesting to keep reading. The last 2 chapters were great and I hope the next book is as good as the first. I loved the AI!
This story was incredible. The story was so fast and had me feeling all kinds of emotions. I was so frustrated with Lyra and her stubbornness to tell the truth and the frustration with Metcalf for being so evil. I will say I loved the ending.
Sorry but this book only gets a single star. The main character is beyond stupid. I’m talking no common sense, do everything possible to get killed, kind of stupid. The first book was entertaining. This book took a nosedive off a cliff into a pile of garbage. Won’t be reading anything else in this series.
