In the sequel to City of Whispers, Ailis, Scott, and James travel to London to search for Ailis's sister, Nina, and Richard Ashdown's son, Tommy. Ailis hopes for a quick rescue, but nothing goes as planned. As she becomes increasingly frustrated, Ailis is haunted by memories from her past, and a growing feeling that there may be more to the vampire outbreak than she first believed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better 15 Feb 2013
By lorna
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I stayed up the first night reading book one, I stayed up the second night reading this, and it was as good if not slightly better than book one, When you have earphones in and reading about them going into the dark stairwell and your five year old grabs you, and you jump through the roof then you know the book has you hooked, I need a book three, please say there is a book three

I really loved this second book and after I read it I had to contact the author to find out when the third one would be available, I've not done that before.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Story Continues 30 May 2012
By Michael J. Burnett - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"The Old City" is, in my opinion, the best kind of sequel.

In her debut novel Katherine Sorin set up a believable world and an admirable protagonist, and in her next one both of them grow in some unexpected ways. It isn't just the same story told again (as so many sequels, unfortunately, tend to be) it is the next phase of an ongoing story.

I really don't want to say much about what happens in "The Old City" because it is just as tightly plotted as "City Of Whispers" and to reveal anything is to reveal too much. Suffice to say that it picks up where we left off, same characters, same world, but... different.

The writing style is subtly different, making use of dramatic flashbacks that help to explain both the back story of the main character Ailis and foreshadow things to come without slowing the pace of the action. It's clear that Sorin is stretching herself as a writer, and I suspect she hasn't hit her stride yet--I am really looking forward to more stories from her.

Ailis continues to grow and change as a person, coming to terms with her experience and being changed by them, without losing the intimate voice that made "City Of Whispers" so enjoyable. The world also expands--nothing that was explained in the first book is contradicted in the second, but much is added.

If you have read "City Of Whispers" then you will be pleased and excited and surprised by "The Old City". If you haven't read "City Of Whispers", then read it first, then come back and get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Move over Sookie and Bella... here comes Ailis! 15 Jun 2012

This was an extraordinary sequel! I loved every minute of it! It was fantastic that Sorin answered questions that had come up in the first book, and as she did in City of Whispers, she set us up with another wicked cliffhanger... and I cannot wait to see where this goes in part #3. It will be interesting to see how the characters develop and where their relationships go :) Loved the Old City feel... and that these vamps don't sparkle! Whoot... way to bring back the bad guys in old world style! - True

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing! 29 May 2012
By Sherry Clifton - Published on

One of the first books I read when I got my Kindle Fire, City of Whispers, blew me away. I enjoyed the storyline and characters. I emailed the the author to ask about the next book and amazingly enough I got an email back saying she was working on it. I got another email from Ms. Soren when she released The Old City. I immediately bought it and devoured it! I love this story! The only down side was that she left me hanging once more. I am very excited to read the third book in the series and will wait on pins and needles until it is released. These books are a must read!

4.0 out of 5 stars City of Whispers and The Old City (Book 2) 21 Sep 2012
By MyDarkSide - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
People are always shocked when I tell them about "My Dark Side" when it comes to reading and watching movies. Loved vampire tales since the first time I watched Bella Lugosi bite his love on the neck. Usually, I root for the vampires, but in these books by Katherine Sorin, I was pulling for the humans all the way. Dark, scary, and so suspenseful. A whole new twist on the origin of vampires. The night after I finished reading them, a huge thunderstorm knocked out the power from 7 pm to midnight. Very scary! Both books are an entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed this one 26 May 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on

After reading the first book in this series, City Of Whispers, I contacted the author to see when the sequel would be out. I got the email yesterday stating The Old City was available. I bought and read the book immediately. Now, I want to know when the third installment will be out?

Like the first book, The Old City is action packed. Sorin's attention to detail and interesting storyline keep the reader engaged. I was happy to learn that my suspicions regarding Desmond in the first novel were confirmed in the sequel. I don't want to give anything away, so I will just say that I was happy with this book. I would encourage anyone who liked City Of Whispers to get this one (and the next one) too!
