Book Review : Seconds Before Sunrise ( The Timely Death Trilogy #2 ) by Shannon A. Thompson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
OMG What an ending !
I want to begin with saying a huge Thank You to the lovely Shannon A. Thompson for sending me an ARC of her magnificently book for review and send her a huge hug. I’ll always be amazed by her work and she knows it – if she did not know it, now she does !
Thrilling, Captivating and Addictive
Seconds Before Sunrise is The Timely Death Series sequel , which means that it picks up right from where the first book has ended. This book has been magnificent – and I really mean it -, full of magic, twists and lots of action. I only wish that Shannon would be a little bit less mean, harsh and violent with her characters. Despite that, I have enjoyed this one as much as I enjoyed the first one.
Seconds Before Sunrise also gives us more insight on the characters and we get to see just how much they have grown since book one. In its essence, the book deals with the effects of the decisions that have been made by the end of the first book, and it focuses on the characters’ personal difficulties. After Jessica has decided to let the DARK erase her memory to keep everyone safe, now she is bound to get it back with any price. In the meantime, Jess begins having different dreams – which aren’t quite dreams at all – so she goes out after Eric to get some questions answered. With Eric’s birthday approaching fast,and the battle he has to face against Darthon the other descendant, things tend to get more stressful for everyone. But that is not all, each side has its own people coming to Hayworth to assist in the prophetic battle.
Things are turning a little bit ugly not just between DARK AND LIGHT in this short amount of time, but also between Jess and her friends – Robb, Zack and Crystal. To be honest I used to like Robb in the beginning but now I only hate him. As for Zack I never liked him, anyway, so there is nothing new to add about my feelings for him. If in the first book I did not have any kind of suspicions regarding Zack, now I’ve grown more and more suspicious of him. I hope to find out if my suspicions were right and my gut hasn’t lied to me, in the next book.
What makes this book/series a MUST READ are the language, the strong characters and their unnerving nature.
