This is an amazing sequel to Suspended, it has all the features that make a great book. It has captivating characters that you can not help but become attached to, love, suspense, intrigue and a storyline, though darker than in her other books, keeps you on the edge of your seat and won't let you put the book down until it's done. I absolutely love the broken people in this book. They are not perfect and they continually struggle to cope and become better people; it makes them real and your attachment to them grows as their vulnerability and past is revealed. Zuma and Finley are well developed characters that grow in complexity with each book and the convolutions of their relationship is captivating. I think the villain in this series is the best one created by Sarah to date. He is complicated, cruel and intelligent. The psychological and emotional manipulation, along with the physical deprivation and cruelty shown, creates a depth and complexity to the bad guy that wasn't as well developed in her other villains. His actions makes your heart break for the damage he has done to the Dream Traveler children, it brings home just how vulnerable a young mind is and what devastation abuse can cause. It also makes you even more amazed and attached to Findly, he has an underlying pureness, strength and determination to his nature that allowed him to eventually overcome his conditioning and fight against the cycle of abuse. This is a really great book and the ending leaves you holding your breath for the next in the series
