*I received an Arc in exchange for my honest review.*
After reading Stitch, I was really excited to see how this series would go. So many twists and turns happened in that novel, it could only get better. Plus, secrets were revealed, and it's always fun to watch what happens after that. And it was definitely more than fun in this case. It was emotional, tense, and exciting.
Alessa was such an interesting character in this novel. I liked her. You could tell that she was getting tired of all the fighting and running. She just wanted something better for herself and the people she loved. Alessa was a really sympathetic character to me. Plus, things start to happen with her, and she grows as a character as well. It will be interesting to see how this affects the next book.
Then, there was Isaac. I really, really liked him. His love for Alessa was so obvious and wonderful to see. I really liked seeing his point of view, even though it was only for a short part of the book. Still, I felt like it definitely gave a lot of insight into his character. He missed his brother, and he also felt a strong sense of duty to fight for the people who had had their lives taken away from them by the stitch. I think he's wonderful for Alessa, and after something that they both figure out in this story, I can't wait to see how their relationship progresses in the next part of this series.
The plot of the story was really interesting. We followed Alessa and Isaac as they started looking for a base for the rebels, and along the way they encountered strange creatures, and Alessa began to have some interesting but scary things happen to her. In other chapters, we followed a prisoner, one of the political leaders, and a woman who couldn't remember who she was. There was a lot of adventure, excitement, and action. The world was really expanded upon in this novel, and we learned a lot of the secrets behind the virus in the chapters from the leader's point of view. It was all really interesting, and I was hardly ever bored.
All in all, I thought this book was a worthy sequel to Stitch. I thought Stitch was better, just because of all the totally unpredictable twists that story had. In this story, I was excited and there was one part that was seriously emotional for me. However, the revelations in this book about the virus were things I easily guessed. Still, if you liked Stitch at all, definitely read the sequel. It provided a lot of character insights and growth, action, and even more world-building. Now, I just can't wait for the third book to come out. ~Brianna
I received a paperback copy of this book from the Author in exchange for my honest opinion.
I think the cover fits brilliantly well with the cover of Bk#1. I like books from the same series to "match" or "compliment" each other well, and this series is doing that perfectly so far.
Would I pick this book up in a store purely on the strengths of its cover? Yes!
The first descriptive line about the book "It's only been three days, and already everything s different" is good way of telling us that when you pick this book up you are straight back into the action. Sure things have changed as Alessa and Isaac have left the supposed "safety" of Paragan and are searching the quite literal wilderness for a new base for the rebels to use as headquarters. So they need a place which is big enough to house everyone yet be a place that can be defended well too. Aleesa has started having "feelings" that are not her own, she kind of makes her own conclusion on them when Isaac is very ill with a fever and is possibly dying. Alessa touches his head and gets a flash, a vision he is "dreaming of " which shows them happy and together. It is then that Alessa comes to the conclusion that she is picking up emotions from places where people have died or people that are close to death. It is confirmed and given the correct name later in the book.
The other point of view that is telling us the story is a young girl whom the scientists/governors in Paragan have named Phoenix. The governors are telling Phoenix all about the way Paragan came to be formed, why the dramas were introduced as entertainment and also the drugs in the food to keep the population from becoming too restless. But are the governors etc telling Phoenix the truth? Even it is partially true why are they telling Phoenix? In fact who is Phoenix? Well "Phoenix" doesn't remember who she is so she doesn't truly know who or what to trust. The governors/leaders of Paragan are planning the destruction of the rebels and intend to use Phoenix to do it.
I can't say anything else or it would give away who Phoenix is etc.
Although Shudder has a complicated plot with many twists and turns, it is still simple enough to follow and a fantastic read/ It's quite fast paced in that there's either something actually happening or plans being laid and set in motion for the next thing to be played out.
I really enjoyed Stitch and I was a little worried as sometimes in a Trilogy it's BK#2 that tends to suffer and not be very good. But this is so not the case with Shudder. I found Shudder an even more exciting and intriguing read than Stitch.
So did I enjoy the book? Yes! Would I recommend the book? Yes! as it's a great series so far and it has such a great selection of genres within it I'd guess there would be something for every reader. Would I read another BK in this Series? Yes! I'd like to read it now! Would I like to read other books by this Author? I would certainly check out any books by this Author.
