Really enjoyed the first book,however this one seemed to go downhill fast. Book is very repetitive in places, girl is kidnapped then rescued, kidnapped again by someone else then rescued again, then its her friends turn to be kidnapped.the women all cry and wait to be rescued and are constantly reffered to as "the females" which is grating. Author has made some attempt at constructing a love triangle plot which is unsuccesfull. New men are constantly added and removed from the scenario making the main character seem manipulative and less endearing as the book goes on. We are constantly being told how wonderful the main character is by the author yet she has been unable to write her in such a way that you are able to agree to this. There is no character development present at all. By the middle of the book I had all but decided not to waste my money on the next installment, which is a shame because the author has a few interesting ideas within the story which could have been worthwhile if she had developed them a little more.
After reading the first book in the Savage Series I eagerly dove into this book with speed and a lust for the continuation of the story that Clara had started, the journey she had begun. Set a year in the future from the ending of the first book she ventures towards finding her mother in Cape Cod. If I thought the first book was a wonder of surprising twists and turns then it pales in comparison to the rabbit hole of wonderland adventures in store for you. I cannot begin to give you tit bits of tantalizing info without giving away too much but suffice to say,Tamara has out done herself with this sequel and although I was very surprised by the end of the book by the outcome each surprise fitted the situations perfectly allowing you to understand more about Clara's past and also each current situation. I cheered with them, wept with them, angered with them and became happy with them falling into their world is easy, coming back to ours and reality is hard! Cannot wait to read book 3!!
