If you liked the first novel, The Helping Hands, then you're guaranteed to enjoy this one as well. I normally don't like sequels but I actually thought this book was better. The Iron Fist follows Melanie O'Conner after her arrest and the death of one of her best friends as she tries to get her life back on track. She strives for a 'normal' life, getting a job, staying away from crime, but is pulled back into her old life by the request of a teenage girl who needs an escape from her abusive stepfather. Added to that there is a new gang of Helping Hands that no one knows about and the FBI is knocking on Melanie's front door for answers. The novel was intriguing on many levels, mostly on the growth of Melanie. Circelli describes the relationship between Melanie and Tyler in a touching yet tantalizing way that makes you all but scream at them to just finally get together and admit their feelings. You actively hate Kelly's stepfather and never know just how it's all going to go down. In the end you're rooting for the good guys to go back to their 'bad' ways and kick some serious butt, and the original theme of Helping Hands rescuing abused children is never lost or forgotten. Circelli's writing style has matured over the course of these two books and the personal development she allows her characters to take part in makes the book fascinating. You can practically feel O'Conner's indecision and Kelly's painful confusion. I can't wait for book number three.
