“The deadly game continues…
Olivia and Candace are dead, both casualties of Violet’s deadly game of Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board. McKenna and Mischa are the only ones left, and having failed to locate and destroy the source of Violet’s power, her curse still abounds, eager to claim more lives.
What does Violet want? And how can she be stopped? Armed with a mysterious package containing clues, as well as a little help from the beyond, McKenna hopes to end this once and for all…before it’s too late.”
After reading and loving the first book (Light as a Feather) I was excited to find out what would happen next so when the author kindly offered to send me an arc of book two I jumped at the chance!
I was sucked back into the storyline straight away, I could feel McKenna’s desperation sparking off the page at me as she attempted to solve the riddle that was Violet. My heart was pounding and my brain working overtime as I tried to figure out what was happening and how to help the people McKenna cared about. The writing simply makes you feel like you’re part of everything, I love books that make me feel that way (even when it’s an eerie read like this one)!
Trying to work out the mystery of the “game” and piecing together all the clues was so much fun, every time something new was revealed I’d find myself gasping or commenting out loud at the book – this inevitably led to some raised eyebrows from my family but, honestly, they should be used to my reading habits by now anyway.
There was a feeling of urgency that radiated from the pages, the author’s words oozed atmosphere which brought each character and scene beautifully to life. Add to that the touch of romance and a hugely twisty ending and, in my opinion, this book had everything I was looking for in a great read!
- An informative visit to a bookstore
- Window pane drawing
- A discovery in a diary
- Bridge revelations
- Hiding under the bed
If you haven’t already read book one then I’d definitely recommend you do so before reading book two. Although the author recaps previous events, you’d need to read the first if you want to experience all the feels.
This was a creepy, mysterious and utterly compelling read that literally had me on the edge of my seat!
