About the Book

There’s something strange about the new girls in town. Briar Creek, Oregon, has never seen anything like the supernatural grace of Rowan, Kestrel, and Jade, three sisters who move into the dilapidated old house next to Mark and Mary-Lynnette Carter. Mark is obsessed with Jade– but she and her sisters have a secret. And when Mark and Mary-Lynnette follow them into the woods one night, they are plunged into a nightmare beyond their imagination. Because the sisters are fugitives from the Night World, and their brother Ash is hot on the trail behind them. He’s ruthless, gorgeous, and he has orders to bring the girls back at all costs. And when he sees Mary-Lynette, he decides to take her too…

 

My Review:

I’ll start with – this was better than the first one. For sure.
Even though there is not a big connection from the first book, I fell good to know at least one of the characters. But so what?
The story is a bit better than the first one, a bit more “real” and a bit better written.

From all the characters I mostly liked Ash. Even though he is said to be the bad guy, as all the bad guys – he have good heart and trying to change. Mary-Lynnette is not the best main character, but not too bad either. The three sisters were totally crazy. Especially Jade.

However, I still think that this is mostly for kids. Not good, not bad.

General note: 6/10
