“See you later, alligator.”
With a lump in my throat, and unable to look back, I whispered, “In a while, crocodile.”

I’m going to say it. Dead Statues is the BEST book so far in the second Kiera Hudson series. I wouldn’t normally choose best books, but, Tim had my cheeks hurting within the first five chapters. I’m not talking my sweet-cheeks, I’m talking my face, lol!

I know, that wasn’t funny:(

I'm not...,I can't...,I don't.......even know what to say or where to even begin with this. I feel like I have been repeatedly punched in the chest over & over & over again & again for the last couple of hours. This book has been the hardest to handle in the series so far. It was like looking at a car accident, you don't really wanna see the carnage but you can't seem to look away either. It emotionally strips you raw & than kicks you in the gut. I cried, screamed, cringed, & ...more

Dead Statues is one of the darkest Kiera Hudson book yet to date. The split view between Potter and Kiera is moving a bought me to tears at points. The cliffhanger will live you wanting more. Took me a day to read because the tale will engross you!

Was in such a rush to read this as wanting to know how the story continues but find myself shouting out, and do not possibly want to believe what is happening. As this has been a long journey and I feel as though I have travelled along side the gang all the way. You're compelled to keep reading even though you might not like what you find on the otherside. This book has got it all the thrills,the action, the heartaches all the things you'd expect from one of Tim's books. The only downside is you

This novel has left me feeling utterley shocked and impatient to find out exactly what is going to happen next. Keira Hudson is definitely back and the main focus of this book, along with Potter. The story is told from both points of view and is completely filled with mystery, emotion, action, adventure, fear and dread.

At the beginning of the book is an Author's Note. This is a short account of what 'Dead Statues' has in store for the reader, i.e. the areas and characters it will be focusing on.

To see my full review:

Once again, O’Rourke sets the scene for a powerful Kiera Hudson book that will have readers second-guessing all the characters, but mainly… the most beloved, Potter. This novel is much darker than the rest; with the recent death of a character very close to our hearts and the constant fighting and “betrayal” amongst the remaining characters, O’Rourke makes this a heartbreaking tale. Moreover, the vivid descriptions of flesh being torn from bodies make

I just adore Tim O'Rourke's work. He's one of the few independent authors who's work I purchase as soon as it's available at full price because I know it's going to be well written and worth the $$. :)

Dead Statues was no exception. This one was much darker and gorier than the previous books in the series. It's told from both Potter & Kiera's view, which I just loved. Much of the book was focused on dealing with their own grief and guilt over things that happened in the past. For the first ti
Oct 21, 2012 rated it it was amazing
Kiera knows Potter is keeping secrets from her, she just doesn't know the reason why. As this book is told from both Potter and Kiera's POV, it offers us a valuable insight into their feelings and the guilt that they both live with over the choices they have made. Kayla gets to the heart of the matter when she seeks vengeance for her brothers death though it does not lessen her grief. A terrible misunderstanding will change the course of their lives and in a world that has been "Pushed", one wro ...more

AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Tim you absolutley killed me with this ending! Instead of reading another book, I now have to dig out Dead Seth (the bastard!) so I can find out what happens next. I really feel all sorts of emotions right now, especially for Kiera and Potter who were played like banjos by Jack Seth. Nice surprise seeing Murphy back where he belongs..right next to Kiera, Potter, and Kayla.

In this book I found the darkness I could foresee in the previous ones, skin-walkers, Vampyrus in hiding, living statues or dead people turned to stone? And the group is now having trouble, too many secrets coming out into the light, too many dangers lurking around them. The past attempts to catch up with them and kick them off balance. How will the gang be able to stay together and survive? Will Potter be able to redeem himself? Will Kiera believe everything that's being revealed to her?
Oct 27, 2012 rated it it was amazing
I love Kiera.She is very loyal and always tries to do the right thing,but right now I'm kinda thinking "what the flip" and I am kinda mad at Potter for being so closed off. I hate cliffhangers. The waiting kills me. One of the things I love about Kiera is that she is so noble.She is also smart and can kick butt.Man I just want the next book. I love this series and this book was awesome...( all Tim's books are awesome).. I can't wait for the next one!

Another phenomenal episode of Kiera Hudson’s life packed with drama, pain, love, passion, death. As always, I was kept sitting at the end of my seat! Poor poor potty mouthed Potter almost screwed over by one of those bit** wolves again! Then of course Kiera – how that girl keeps it together – wow. Yet, you see her almost crumbling (literally) with the choice Seth tells her she must make. Then the fighter comes back to us when she realizes what she needs to do to save ALL the people she loves.

I love this series! I found myself so engrossed in the characters and all of the twists and turns in the plot, just when I thought I had it figured out, there would be a new twist on the whole story. I loved the way it kept me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning.I have read both of the Kiera Hudson series and can't wait for the third series to begin.
