by Marianne Curley
Author: Marianne Curley
This novel is the sequel to 'Hidden' and the storyline continues from there. The story is now told in triple perspective, and we see the different sides become more defined. As readers, we see characters develop and the story becomes more complex as we see two storylines develop and eventually become one.
Curley ends some chapters on cliffhangers, which is something that hooks the reader and is very enjoyable. Curley does not do this with every chapter, which keeps the novel exciting without breaking any tension created.
Again, this is a very enjoyable read and I would reccomend it for anyone aged 13+.
Avena series overview
This is a very enjoyable series that had me hooked from page one. Curley uses the perfect blend of romance, supernatural creatures and action that the novels do not get repetitive. Curley has created a vivid world that anyone can get lost in, using description to create the world and the characters, developing them and making them realistic. Ebony is a brilliant heroine and can be related to in many ways. Yes, she is the typical Young Adult heroine, but she has her own quirks and vulnerabilities that makes her likable.
My only criticism would be that some characters, I felt, were unnecessary and could have been taken out. However, these characters are still enjoyable.
The first two novels are exciting, funny and interesting. I am really looking forward to the third novel and will happily reread this and recommend this to my friends!
Overall, I reccomend this series to anyone who likes action, romance, supernatural creatures and brilliantly developed characters who is aged 13+.
