Overview

Mary in the mirror.
Mary in the glass.
Mary in the water.
Mary lurks in the emptiness, in the darkness . . . in the reflection. That is, until Jess unleashes her into the world. Now Mary Worth is out, and her haunting is deadlier than ever.
No one is safe.
Shauna, Kitty, and Jess must band together to unearth the truth about Mary's death, to put her soul to rest for good. Their search leads them back to where it all began-Solomon's Folly, a place as dangerous as the ghost who died there a century and a half ago. Quicksand, hidden traps, and a phantom fog are the least of their worries. To stop Mary, they need to follow a dark string of clues and piece together a gruesome mystery that spans generations.
But time is running out.
As chilling facts come to light, Mary inches ever closer to her prey. Can Jess, Shauna, and Kitty break Mary's curse before it's too late? Or will history repeat itself until there is no one left to call her name . . . ?

Disappointing. Not very scary at all, not like the first one. This one was more like a old fashioned murder mystery. All that was missing was Sherlock Holmes. Oh well.

Egads! *shudders* I think that there are very few books that I've ever read that have made me so shaky. To be quite honest with you, I hate horror. I just do. I don't like being terrified. I do like being creeped out, and I love a good creepy read. However, there's a difference between creepy and freaking terrifying. Mary Unleashed definitely fell into the latter category. Bloody Mary has always been a sinister and blood curdling story. What kid hasn't been tempted to try calling out to Mary in the mirror during a party or even just one night when you didn't have anything better to do? How many kids actually managed to do it without screeching or nearly passing out? Few I'd wager. This book is absolutely not for the faint of heart. It's completely gruesome, but I kept reading because I wanted to know if the girls were successful in defeating Mary Worth, the antagonist. Back in the first installment of this two part story, a bunch of unsuspecting girls play a party game and unwittingly release the decaying and vengeful Mary Worth into the world through the mirror. What they didn't realize is that once Mary draws blood from ANYONE she'll haunt them forever, either until she draws blood from someone else or she successfully murders her victim. Mary isn't too picky though, she'll kill other people too if they're anywhere near her when she comes to claim her blood prize. The only person she won't attack? A mom. The only little human piece of Mary that's left is the love of her own mother. You try so hard to understand how Mary could become so horrible, but just as you start to feel sorry for the ghost she does something truly disgusting reminding you that it's impossible to appeal to her humanity. There's none left, and the girls are all in danger. Of the "about to be murdered by a ghost" variety. The plot was well played out and Mary's backstory was a great new perspective, touching on issues like abuse and bullying and turning Mary's origin story into a tragedy not of her own making. A talented second and final installment to a very fascinating new look at the Bloody Mary story.

I LOVE this series. LOVE. IT. In this installment we get to learn more about Mary, and why she is doing what she is doing. The characters in this book are so fantastic. Even the super creepy ones. I cannot say too much because you should read this one for yourself so you can have a super scary experience...heheh Some one else might read this and think "she was off her rocker it's not that scary"....well to me it was! I love reading scary books, they just make me happy. I know I have said that before, and I know people will think that is weird, but it does. I love the thrill that comes from reading a scary book. The thought of Bloody Mary in the mirror is scary, but having her outside of the mirror is a far scarier idea. I love the connections that are brought to light in this book. I love how we get to read more "letters" from the past. I really like it when books connect the past with the present. There is so much going on in this book. Everyone is fighting for their life...no one is safe. Mary is every where. Reading this book kept me on my toes the whole time. The author does a great job of making you feel like you need to investigate every noise that happens in the house at night, while not wanting to move for fear it may be "something"...hehe Jess is more annoying in this installment than she was in the first book. She is selfish, and just plain stupid. In the midst of a crisis she is not someone you want to have with you. Shauna and Kitty on the other hand know how to stick together and fight. Mary is just plain creepy. CREEPY. The author does a great job describing everything without getting to wordy. I have to admit a few times while reading I was so engrossed in the book that my heart was beating fast, my hands started sweating, and any movement in my house made me jump. It was FANTASTIC. If you like thrillers this is a great series to read!!!
