The journey continues in this second book. Catch your breath now because it's a rollercoaster ride! Who can you trust, and are they really who you think they are? Do you trust you senses? Fall down the rabbit hole - you're going to love this adventure!
It just never got good. The story never developed depth, the characters were superficial at best. The story rambles at best. TypeOs were getting worse as the book (2nd) went along. With a LOT of editing and rewrites, it could be good.
I am an adult that occasionally likes to read some YA books recommended on Kindle lists. The first book I enjoyed, except for some NYC (native) and homelessness incorrect info. This book I guess my age and experience got in the way of plunging into the land of make believe. There are too many things I can point to for my rating. I will read one more book to see if it makes sense, otherwise I will leave this authors work to young people.
Okay so book two was quite a journey and I loved every minute! Less spelling and grammatical errors than book one but they’re still present. I love the characters and was able to breeze past them too hungry to read the words to further this great adventure. Hart Potter fans would love this series.
After reading the first book I wasn't sure if I wanted to read this one but I have to say I'm glad I did as this book was much better than the first! It had more surprises which I enjoyed and wasn't repetitive.
