New characters, New world, but old enemies. Emily struggles to ignore a new friend with emotions that temp her, Wes delves deeper into his past and family while finding friendship isn't reserved for the human race alone, Jane finds out her dear Max isn't what he seems, Gregs friendships cost him more than he expected, and Max forgets that the truth is best. But then again, someone always has to be the liar...
Emotional baggage, begrudged enemies, and the bitterness that comes when the honeymoon of their friendship fades...
Will the love survive, or as it all just a game?
I was happy to meet again with this not-so-merry gang of teenagers for a second round. The events at the end of Book of Love changed them but they are far from being at the of the road, many more surprises awaits them along the way. This time, Max’s past is coming back to hunt them and the threat won’t stop until death comes.
I didn’t feel the same connection I felt with Jane (seoul, she can predict people’s deaths) in the first book but this encounter wasn’t any less good. The characters we already know will learn more about themselves, their abilities and their past. I think Emily (Mind reader) was my favorite one, she changed so much and all for the best. Max (guardian angel) was the character that really got to me though, the things he will go through this time around are plain crazy and could break down anyone.
Abra also introduced 2 new characters to the story, Avery, a pixie from Max’s past and Jake, a vampire. You’ll find that the former’s goals are rather bold, but the latter’s are very shadowy.
The plot kept a steady pace, I would’ve loved a bit more action, but the main focus is the character’s psychology and the end totally made up for it. Abra built up a crescendo of emotions and you find yourself seeking ways to reach a different ending.
Two weeks ago, Max stopped by for an interview and his answer “(Frowns) I can't believe I didn't see it coming, that's all.” means a lot more now that I’ve read Book of Revenge. The end will stun you and I’m sure that like me, you’ll want to know right away what happens next. I really can’t wait to see how this bunch of teenagers will bounce back. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait for a while, because the third book isn’t written yet!
