What a dark and disturbing ride!
Keri Lake blew me away with her writing style in Ricochet (the first book in this series). And with this second installment her literary prose continued to thrill me. Her way with words is not only breathtaking, but truly inspiring. *my only complaint – GIVE ME MORE! I could read an entire book of prose by this author & be content
The story-line and characters are fabulously depicted in vivid detail. As heartbreaking as some of it may be, it all works perfectly within the context of the story.
I think possibly my favorite part of this book is how the city becomes a living, breathing entity, like another character within the story. The feelings of abandonment and bleak desperation bleed out across the entirety of the book. Loved it!
So why only 4.5 Stars? Length. This book was just too long for me. I enjoyed most of what I was given but found myself wanting to move along past some of the flashbacks and just move forward with the plot. It’s not a major complaint – it’s all written with the same fantastic style, so it’s easy to read. I just felt like I lost the forward momentum at a few points. I guess maybe I’m just impatient.
Overall – completely fabulous! I’m looking forward to more from Keri Lake!
