Second in the series, this book takes up where the first left off and intensifies the crisis.

The book is riveting but may be too intense for younger audiences. Say anyone under 78...

I'm not sure what upset me most about this book. The fact that it was never content to have a single crisis ocurring at once, or the way that it calls the thinking reader to question what exactly is right and wrong and good and evil. There used to be a spooky saying that once committed to it, women were the fiercest, least sympathetic warriors, well kids make the meanest, most believeable villains, perhaps because there's much recognizeable truth in their willingness to cause chaos for chaos sake without respect to anyone else's feelings. Kids also make the best psychopaths.

Any way you slice it, this book is a good engrossing read.

Thanks for the warning as I don't need anymore nightmares.
