Red is for Rage is the next book in this collection. I would start with the first book. Although, you could read the second one but to get more context and history of the characters, it would be better to read the first book. Which having the context did help some with this book. My reading vibe with the characters and the story went faster.

It was good to see Tad's abilities showcased more. Plus, she was becoming more prominent. Another person that I noticed more was retired cop, Charlie. In fa

Lost opportunity to explore deep bigotry

This second volume is ambiguous as for the meaning and the direction. It is the follow-up sequel to the previous volume but in a way, it changes the atmosphere, the ambiance, the color and tone of the story. It sure is red and full of rage but this red rage is not that present or even powerful, could I say pregnant, as it should be to animate the story that has many weak and soft sections. It is a sort of let down because we should expect in this horror cr

This is Connie's second book in The Color of Evil series. While I haven't read the first book the second book didn't confuse me at all and basically caught me up about what was going on and what went on in the first book. I have to say that it was a doozy but in a good way. Connie has a way that sweeps you up and inside the book and carries you from one page to the other as though time has stood still. I read though this book and couldn't believe what was going on and she left me hanging on ever ...more

I should warn you this is the second book in The Color Of Evil series in case I can’t avoid spoilers from the first book.

In book one, Tad suffered horrendous nightmares until the serial killer, Pogo the Clown was caught and put behind bars.

Moving on to highschool, Tad begins to have the nightmares again. They are tied to the aura’s he sees around people.

In the end of the first book, Tad’s best friend, Stevie, is still missing, and Tad will not stop until he finds out what happened to him.

Review of Red is for Rage
Connie Corcoran Wilson
5 stars

“Red is for Rage” is the second book in Ms. Wilson’s “The Color of Evil” series (I also reviewed the first), and I certainly hope that there will be a third entry, because the author hooks us at the end with a cliffhanger, which left this reviewer hungering for more: answers, characters, continuation of the several plots and subplots. As always, Ms. Wilson juggles a large cast of characters, develops each, and keeps plots going on all the bur

Stevie is still missing and Tad is willing to do anything to find him. Tad teams up with Charlie Chandler, a retired policeman, and a group of people to hunt Stevie down. Instead they find a killer even more deranged than Michael Clay. Clay is still on the hunt for Tad thinking that if he kills Tad he can be free to go on his killing spree again. It’s going to be up to Tad to get control of his power before he loses everything.

You are dropped right back into the story just a couple months after

Cedar Falls, Iowa seems like and idyllic place to live and raise your children. Unknown to a casual visitor is the dark history that it hides, that of rampaging murderers and evil incarnate. It does have a chance at normalcy in the form of high school senior Tad McGreevy. Since he was young, Tad has seen colours attached to each person. Most people show colours that are indicate benign behaviour, though a few exhibit khaki, which is a sign that a person is truly evil.

Tad still has no clues how
Red is for Rage is the second book in Connie’s The Color of Evil trilogy. In the first novel we are introduced to the notorious serial killer Michael Clay aka Pogo the Clown, Tad McGreevy, and Tad’s best friend Stevie Scranton (amongst a host of other characters). Tad can see auras which determine a person’s pre-disposition and has precognitive dreams. In Red is for Rage Tad has a dream that portends danger and, if that isn’t enough, an angry Pogo the Clown is closing in on him.

Red is for Rage is the second book in the series "The Color Of Evil". The author continued the story where it left off in the first book. If your looking for a book full of adventure and action then this is the one for you. I would definitely say this is NOT for the younger YA. This story deals with some very tragic real life issues, child abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse for starters. Then we have the graphic violence added to the story, and while necessary to the tale it may be a bit much f ...more

This is the second book in the series, We had a cliff hanger at the end of the first book, Stevie has gone missing They pour everything into searching for him. There is another monster out there even worse then Pogo the killer clown, Tad must use his gift to find Stevie and stay alive.

All I can say that Connie did it again she took us on a roller coaster ride yet again, This is the second book and some time has passed and Stevie has been missing for months, and POGO THE KILLER CLOWN has escap

Red is for Rage picks up a few months after the end of the events in The Color of Evil, continuing the story of our main cast of teen characters, as well as the adults in their lives. The overall number of characters we follow in this book seemed to be smaller than that of the first one, which made the story more enjoyable for me. One of my big complaints when reading The Color of Evil was simply that there were too many people to follow, making it difficult to tell what storylines were importan ...more

I received this book from the author and Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.

Red is for Rage is the second installment of the series by Connie Corcoran Wilson. She takes us further into Tad's story, as he tries to harness his special ability to save his friends. The characters are flawed, and interesting like real people are, and as their stories progress you come to see them as people who are after all only human and exhibit the spectrum of human traits. Connie creates mystery and suspens

Connie Wilson has once again risen to the top. Her extensive background and experience in getting the least-known details of the story are absolutely amazing. She is thorough and keeps you entertained and informed with an unmistakable wit that gives you tremendous insight on any subject she writes about. I have been reading Connie's work for many years now. I loved this and can't wait for the next great project. ...more

"Red is for Rage" is the second book in 'The Color of Evil' series. Connie continues the story where it left off but we learn more about Tad's powers. A nicely flowing plot that will hook you in from the beginning. A must read for all adult readers who love the thrill of horror.

This review is based on a complimentary copy from the author which was provided for an honest review.

I have to say as I did the last time I reviewed one of this writer's books, these books are not for the faint of heart or easily disturbed. So word for the wise, don't read home a lone or at nighttime. These books will create paranoia. It's a perfect read for the up coming Halloween holiday. ...more
