    Chapter by Chapter's review of Another Jekyll, Another Hyde

    I have been so excited to read Another Jekyll, Another Hyde because with the way Another Pan came to a close, it left readers wondering what would happen next. What happens to the governess Vileroy? Who will be the main character? What will the plot be? While I can’t give you the exact answer to some of those questions (seeing as how I want this to be as spoiler free as possible), I can tell you that the main character is Thomas who, if you have read the first novel you probably remember him, was once the boyfriend to Belle, one of the main characters from Another Faust. The worst (best part in the plot!) thing for Thomas is that his rich father is marrying… guess. The French governess, Nicola Vileroy.

    Oh snap, nobody saw that one coming did they? Well, to add to the problem Vileroy is back to her old tricks and needs a host to contain a certain somebody named Hyde. Guess who that host is? Thomas. Dun Dun Dun… So anyways, I found the novel interesting for quite a few reasons, one of them being the way that Thomas ends up getting Hyde into his body in the first place and that is through a drug that is simply called W. Now at first, I thought that with the novel being about one of the characters who I adored in Another Faust also being a bit of a drug user/drinker I was a bit hesitant. I mean, I don’t want to read a novel about a guy drinking himself into oblivion and thankfully Another Jekyll, Another Hyde was far from that worrisome idea.

    It had all of the paranormal and fantasy aspects that Another Faust and Another Pan had and it also showed the lengths that Vileroy would go to for survival. Before each chapter, it even included either sessions that Thomas would end up having with his therapist or the journal entries that he would end up writing (both of which I found very interesting and exciting in themselves), but also you would end up getting the occasional few that are about the governess Vileroy and just exactly how Hyde ends up coming into existence. One of the things I loved most about the novel was the duo personality type feel that I would end up getting from the story; one minute you would be reading from what is obviously Thomas’s point of view and suddenly things change into a more distorted, aggressive type style, which indicates that Edward is in control (yes his name is Edward and he is nothing like the Twilight character).

    Another treat that fans of the story can get is the way that ALL (and I do feel like I had the need to underline, italicize and bold print that word) of the main characters, minus Peter Pan, all made a cameo appearance in the story. You would end up meeting all of the ones from Another Faust at some point and end up seeing Wendy and John Darling from Another Pan. Something I found really awesome and just fantastic.

    The novel had an ending that I didn’t see coming, lots of those breath taking twists that you don’t see coming and moments where your heart stops beating because you are afraid of what might happen next. Truly a great way to end such a great series.
