In the second installment of the Croak series, Lex returns to the town of Croak with her Uncle Mort after recruiting the newest juniors to join the Grim community. Zara continues her tour of destruction after she has culled Lex’s ability to Damn and the grimosphere blames Lex. In an effort to escape the anger of Croak, the Juniors along with Uncle Mort flee to the grim town of DeMyse while they wait for the opportune moment to stop Zara and return to their lives in Croak.

This series reminds me of the television show Dead Like Me, except that the grims in Croak are alive and well. Picking up where the first installment in the series ends, Scorch includes further character development and a more complex plot. There are laughs as Lex and Driggs attempt to sneak around Uncle Mort’s house as their hormones rage, which helps to lighten the mood as Zara continues her damning spree across the country and the town’s animosity towards Lex and the juniors continues to grow. There are also a few twists revealed in the last pages of the novel, some of which took me completely by surprise and others which almost seem absurd (one to be exact). Overall, this was an enjoyable read and I look forward to the next installment in the series.
