“Max is still in the thick of things. She hasn't been able to sleep because Scooter wants her and it's affecting everything. She finally decides to confront him only to find out her real family are in danger. Scooter agrees to give her a week. Alexander has also been told some things from both Magpie and Giselle and it's been decided that Alexander will accompany Max to get her family.
So I'm thinking, all right a road trip with just Max and Alexander ~ about time!! But I should've known better. Trouble always finds Max and this book has lots of trouble. As with the first book, there is almost nonstop action. While I mostly liked it, I was really wanting some down time with Max and Alexander. I really enjoyed how their relationship is evolving and how it seems that they are the ones for each other. But how sexually frustrating!!
Many new characters are brought in as well as Max's family and I can't wait to see how everything goes at Horngate. I felt sorry for Max, still having that feeling of being left out of the loop. I think Giselle has some explaining to do. She's gotten off easy so far ... she owes Max.
One complaint I have is that parts of the book seem very choppy and they don't flow well. I had to reread a few paragraphs.
And wow ... there are two moments towards the end that got me a bit teary eyed! And the ending? Well, let's just say, make sure you have Shadow City ready and waiting!
“Just remember, I am not going anywhere,” he said, still watching her lips. “And if you ever try to hide from me, I will not believe you are dead. I will find you. Count on it.”
