The Difficult 2nd Album
on 4 September 2014
I read the first Ethan Justice novel and couldn't put it down. At times I was even reading the book under my desk at work (having downloaded the Kindle App for my phone). Having truly enjoyed it, I was ovejoyed to be sent a free copy of the follow.up (although I couldn't get this onto my phone - a fault I attribute to Samsung rather than Mr Jenner!!)
Relentless is a great follow up and I particularly like the way that it picks up a few days after the first book ends rather than leave you wondering what Ethan and Savannah have been up to in between.That said, I didn't get the same thrill from this one (although I did read them virtually back to back so I may have been suffering from Justice overload!)
I have racked my brain while reading it (see men can multitask) and even now I can't quite put my finger on why. Maybe it's because I was expecting the main characters to be developed a bit more or possibly because the characters are so believable I didn't want to get under the skin of Wendall (as fantastically psychotic a bad guy as I have ever had the misfortune to "meet").
While those who have read the first book would have no trouble referencing back, some of these references may be lost on people picking this up as a stand alone novel and that might put them off. My advice is: if you haven't read the first book and are reading the second - stop. Download the first book and I guarantee the series will grip you.
This is shaping up to be a brilliant series and I cannot wait for the next instalments. Mr Jenner, over to you...
