    Great Sequel

    I have been eagerly awaiting this sequel to Into the Shadows. Dealing with mass hysteria and emulating the atrocities that happened to innocents during the Red Scare, the Holocaust, and the Japanese Internment camps, Kirkpatrick’s Into the Shadows Series quickly captivates the reader. Likewise, the message she expounds about prejudice is loud and clear, and I think both of these novels are must reads for our youth.

    Paivi is still on the run with her brother and Christian, but as her powers increase, her determination to fight back becomes overpowering, and our beloved characters begin making plans to take on the government. I wasn’t expecting this development in the novel, but am glad that Kirkpatrick added it as the evil needs to be stopped, and in a way, it reminded me of the hit TV series Heroes, which I really enjoyed. With their superpowers marking them an enemy of the state, and her parent nearly dead in a concentration camp, there really isn’t anything Paivi and her friends can do but fight back.

    Though a bit slower in terms of action than the first novel, I still found this a very good, enticing read, and I am hoping the final installment will come out sooner rather than later as this novel once again ends on a cliffhanger, and the suspense is killing me. Four stars.
