The first book, THE SPARROW, was so wonderful, and not the kind of book I thought I would like. Set in the future, traveling to another planet. But the characters drew me in so much I immediately bough the second book. I enjoyed it too. There are so...more

I enjoyed learning about characters I'd heard about in the Outlander series but never met. Also fun to see Roger as a boy. A nice, short read to keep me anxious for the next full length installment.

Had to keep reminding myself that this was Joe and not his father. His writing, in this book at least, reminds me very much of Stephen King. Same tone, same detail, same over the top creepy. When you're done, you'll never hear Christmas music again w...more
