I hadn't known this was the second book in the series when I picked it up. But I did follow the story well enough on it's own and that didn't bother m..Show More »e the slightest. I thought it was a well written YA book.
What did make me think though was of course the whole before life... I enjoyed the main character Tessa, and the love and care for her brother was immense. I think he played a great part with his drawings, and the way he kept seeing/predicting a few things.
I enjoyed the double life, the dreams and the fact she was seeing Alex in them. Really interesting concepts in here.
There was a good few twists and turns I wasn't expecting, the whole book kept me interested and wanting more. Wasn't so keen on the interfering 'guardians' but yeah, I guess there has to be something that doesn't sit well. I thought they did just that, interfere too much.
Even though it was a long one, in general I guess the ending was because there's another in the series... I will have to wait and see how everything turns out for Tess and Alex.
Andrea always does a great job with her performance. I picked the book up because I follow what she's producing. I need to make sure I get the first in the series though next time. haah.
Unsure if I'll buy the first before the third one comes out... we'll see.
