The effort that JD took at allowing the characters some personality didn’t go unnoticed. I found book two a bit more interesting and I think everyone will. The author struggled to life to the series. I found myself easing off Thomas a bit. Newt has some likeability as well. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still very informative, a bit harsh at times it has a few one line funnies thrown here and there. Although the characters might not have been three-dimensional, I found myself drawn into the storyline. Wise cracking guys, threat of death two girls one guy, wicked and a mystery all rolled into one kept me interested to the very end.
I don’t think I would out right recommend this series for adults but I think Jr. High boys and girls alike would find the series interesting.
P-S I have to admit this… the first 25% of the book I used the text-to-speech function on my kindle because I didn’t think I would enjoy it and I didn’t want to be accused of not doing anything with it. In the end…. The book won out and grabbed my full attention so I finished it under my own reading power!!!
