I read the first book in this series for a previous blogtour and really enjoyed it. It was a very promising start and I was looking forward to seeing more of what was in store. Luckily the second instalment didn’t disappoint.
Continuing with the positives I outlined in my previous review, this was an interesting and fast paced story without being too complicated. I found it very easy to follow what was happening without the story being patronising in any way.
This book plays right into my personal tastes, including the dark humour, the fear it invokes (not mentioning the “C” word, but saying that in this current climate really is saying something) and the twisted nature of the narrative is right up my street. I am really looking forward to the third instalment!
