I'd given up hope. I buried my self in my text books. So many horrible, horrible writers have sprung up & the editors have disappeared. Misspelled words, bad grammar abound. Characters that get easily distracted and wander off predictably and become heroes. This is the world I thought had become ours with the rise of digital books. Then I heard a rumour... first from my father-in-law whispered over the Thanksgiving chatter.."I've found a series...no listen.. a real series, a master piece." I rolled my eyes silly old man doesn't he know that art has been dead several years now. Fast forward a year later when my dentist held me hostage, hands in mouth making statements I couldn't physically respond to... "This series I'm reading, it's amazing, refreshing, and real" I roll my eyes, it's all I can do.. "I am amazed at the authors wit, his use of transitions, I'm captivated"... I grunt "no, this is real Jessica, a real author, I feel like I've found the holy grail of books"... Still I didn't listen, fast forward more wasted time, I was stuck outside another dance practice of my daughter's, half listening to the idle chat of the other moms. Facebook couldn't hold my interest and I was between classes so no mandatory reading to do. I flipped open my kindle dusted it off and searched for this holy grail.... I am happy to report that I have just now come up for air after reading the first two books back to back. I feel the need to pause, relish in my new found friends (the amazingly well developed characters of this book) and write this review with my two thumbs on this small kindle. You have to read this book! The first book was a tiny bit slow, it had to be, it was stroking the anticipation, this book however takes that anticipation and flares it into an all consuming feeling of "need to know". I need to know what's going to happen next! Forgive my grammar and spelling on this review, I'm not going to edit, I need to buy book #3 and check in on my friends. I never know what their up to next. I. Love. It.
