Solidly Satisfying Sequel

I would like to thank MuseItUp Publishing for a copy of this e-book to review. Though I received this e-book for free, that has no impact upon the honesty of my review.

Continuing in the same vein as the first book, this one is rich with colorful characters, interesting challenges, and thoughtful messages embedded within the story itself. Suzie, now going by her full name of Susan, finds yet another mystery to be unraveled right along with the unfinished mystery from book one. Only this time she's got her legs underneath her, so to speak; starting from a much more powerful position Susan once again is the central figure in the ongoing saga that is no longer just the College of Deaths, but now involves the world of Deaths.

At the tender age of fourteen Susan is still struggling to eke out a place in a society that's been devoid of women for a million years. And now she's got the added challenge of coping with multiple admirers, though that does help balance out the considerable grief she still faces from those who've long become accustomed to an all male society. Billy, Frank, and two others vie for her affections, while still trying to find the right balance of remaining her friend should she chose one of them. And while there is romance, it is very age appropriate, again going no further than sweet kisses (which may in many cases be somewhat idealistic in the world today's teens must navigate).

While many of the core characters continue to develop, Frank steps into the next largest role. Much of this book bounces between following the development of both Susan and Frank. As they grow into themselves they propel the story forward, tackling old and new challenges alike. The intrinsic strength of each of these teenagers is surprising and a nice affirmation that young adults can be powerful and strong on individual levels. Though they may lean on each other from time to time, they are also able to better stand on their own than they did just one short year ago. Part of the challenge they all face is who to trust among their peers, among the adults in their lives, and how far they can trust their own judgment. It's a nicely framed situation that reflects the balance all teens struggle to find as they grow older and more independent.

Ending with a solid cliffhanger, this middle book of the trilogy is a lovely addition to the series. The characters continue to be well thought out and developed, as does the plot they are following. The arc of this story is nice and smooth, with the action and introspection well blended to avoid a glut of one or the other in any section of the book. As the dust settles it's clear that this entry is not only well thought out but well written, leaving this reader looking forward to the conclusion of the trilogy, as I'm sure it won't disappoint.
