The characters J.L. Bryan writes are pretty amazing. I loved Jenny and her `opposite', Seth in book one. They were so easy to get to know and great fun to hanging around with. Just in case you don't know, these guys have special gifts, only Jenny doesn't see hers as a `gift' but a huge burden. I think I can tell you without giving out any spoilers that Jenny's touch kills. Even the slightest touch from her would give you the `Jenny Pox' and you'd probably die a horrible, painful death. Seth is her opposite, and then there's Ashleigh ... Listen, I'm not going to tell you anymore about Jenny Pox, you'll just have to read the book! In book two, the first character we meet is new to the scene. Tommy. Tommy is living with a group of other boys in a foster home with, lets just say, not so nice foster parents. He's not an evil kid and he can't help having a `gift'. I really liked Tommy, or maybe more to the point I felt sorry for him and I really enjoyed the character. There are a few new characters brought into this story, but I think you get my point about how much I loved reading about them.
It amazes me how this author sets the scene. There are no long, drawn out descriptions of anywhere, but he seems to implant the picture into your brain without you realising it and the plots are always fast paced and exciting, with Tommy Nightmare being no exception. There was nothing about this book I didn't like.Read more ›
This book makes more of the history of the characters which Jenny begins to remember and their previous lives and battles. We meet Tommy Nightmare whose `gift' is to be able to resurrect the dead into zombies and Esmeralda who can talk to the dead and read their memories.
Ashleigh manages to make an appearance and is as utterly obnoxious as in Book 1.
Meanwhile are the authorities closing in on Jenny and the source of Fallen Oak Syndrome?
The mix of old and new characters is enjoyable and the action fast paced. This book like book 1 has the feeling of a book for the youth market but the sex scenes make it more for an adult reader.
Another brilliant but not over laboured paranormal read
This time around we are also introduced to a couple of new characters, Tommy. His touch conjures fear in the other person's mind and Esmeralda who can talk with the dead.
We see these two characters first meet as young children, now years later after seeing Ashleigh on tv Tommy feels an unexplainable urge to find her. After discovering Ashleigh's remains he remembers the girl who can contact the dead and tried to track her down in order to talk to Ashleigh.
In the mean time there is also a massive Homeland Security investigation happening in Fallen Oaks, no one can seem to explain the tragic events that happened at the end of Jenny Pox.
I don't want to give too much of the plot away, even though we have some new characters Seth and Jenny are still in this book as well. The point of view switched between the characters throughout the book. In this case I really enjoyed seeing the world and what was going through everyone's eyes. It made all the characters that bit more real to me.
The story itself is brilliant, I didn't think that Jenny Pox could be topped but Tommy Nightmare is just as good, if not better than Jenny Pox. The book flowed wonderfully from the first one, almost as if the two books were one. Usually with sequels there a time gap between books, or a massive recap. Not this time around the story picked up right away after that one night that changed everything in Fallen Oak.
There was a few unexpected twists in this book that I didn't see coming, especially towards the end.Read more ›
It is somewhat less entertaining than its predecessor, largely because the new characters, Tommy, Esmeralda, and Heather (the doctor investigating the Fallen Oak deaths) are not in themselves particularly interesting. Esmeralda's talent starts off spookily enough but goes nowhere as she drops out of the story (in exchange for the welcome return of another character from book 1). Heather, the only major character who is a normal human, I found rather dull, and the associated medical procedural sketchy and unengaging. The dream sequences of Jenny and Seth in ancient Greece did not really come to life either: whilst there they speak in curiously stilted English, as though they were actors in a Greek tragedy, and the historical detail is vague.
Highlights are the arrival of Alexander, who possesses a promising ability to raise the dead, and the return of the pregnant Darcy. I had not noticed her much in book 1, but here she stands out as one of the best realised, and most likeable, characters, whose every utterance ("he sinned my brains out") is gloriously inane.
Though not the best in the series, Tommy Nightmare succeeds in taking the story in some promising new directions.
