An old friend of Christina Romney's comes to the mainland to live with her at the Shevvington's house. (Slight spoiler alert!) Dolly Jaye appears at the end of the first book, creating an intriguing twist, but I was curious how it would play out in the sequel. In the first book, Christina remembered Dolly very fondly and Dolly would send her tapes (Yes, the late 80s and early 90s were very prehistoric times) to keep her updated on the happenings of the Island they lived. Christina missed Dolly and looked at her as her only friend, so I thought she would be a help to Christina in her fight against the Shevvingtons, but no. Dolly, much like everyone else was caught up in the Shevvington's cult-like charm, so Christina was once again on her own.
The twist at the ending was interesting. It was one that caught me off guard, and now it feels like we're back to square one. Book 3 has a tough act to follow with this book, but I hope it finds a way to finish this series in the best way possible.
The second book picks up where the first left off: Christina is stuck at Schooner Inne with Dolly, her best friend, who's just as much under the Shevvingtons' spell as is everyone else, and Christina knows that, since Anya seems to have escaped their clutches, they've taken on Dolly as an acceptable substitute. How to get her out of the clutches of the Shevvingtons without making herself look completely nuts? And who is that guy in the brown wetsuit that only Chrstina, Anya, and Blake ever seem to have seen-- and who now seems to be living in the Shevvingtons' cellar? As with the first book, Snow is a cracking good read, but with one major caveat: Cooney is another of those authors who feels the need to go over a lot of the material from the previous book in the series during her narrative (the most egregious, and obvious, example of the painfully annoying practice is Terry Goodkind), and so the first fifty-odd pages of this tend towards the boring-retread school of writing. Skim the stuff you already know, and if you haven't yet, read Fog first. ***
