Description

The second novel in the new, gripping supernatural thriller series from international best-selling author Jodi Taylor.

From the frying pan into the fire....

Betrayed, terrified and alone, Elizabeth Cage has fled her home. With no plan and no friends, she arrives at the picturesque village of Greyston and finds herself involved in an ages-old ceremony that will end in death.

And that might be the least of her problems - the Sorensen Institute would very much like to know her whereabouts. And Michael Jones is still out there, somewhere, she hopes. No matter how far and how fast she can run, trouble will always find Elizabeth Cage.

A break from reality

I enjoy Jodi Taylor's books, and have listened to all of the St. Mary's series. I am glad I started this new series. This book has little to do with reality, and I read to get away for just a bit. I like the characters and the setting a lot and I never knew where the story was going - by turns, it can be calm home life, with a bit scary, a little funny, or a lot dangerous. The only little thing that bothered me was the change in readers. It did take a while to get used to a different voice, but I finally accepted it. I do get whiny when different readers are used for a series, but that is just my preference to stay with a good thing. When there is a good reader for a character, and then it changes to someone different, it takes me out of the story for a while until I get used to the change. I did like the calmer presentation of the first reader more, and even considered buying the Kindle edition instead, but listening turned out OK. I told you I get whiny when a series changes readers.

Narrator should not have been changed!

The book was written well and the story was great. I did not care for the narrator. Elizabeth is a younger girl and I felt the new narrator aged her and she wasn't as good as Kate Scarfe.

Narrator-sigh

Love Jodi Taylor books. But this one is the first one that I didn't care for the narrator. Nice voice but can not to different people.

Wonderful Sequel

I absolutely LOVED this book! I liked it even more than the first! Jodi Taylor’s writing is so engaging and I cannot wait for the next book in this series! Also note that while the narrator is different from the first book - I thought she did an excellent job!

I was wrong, or projecting: I love this reader now

I previously reviewed this performance as depressing, especially compared to the White Silence reader. i listened to it mostly in terrible settings for sound. i listened to it in quiet rooms recently, and was captivated by the reader's clear delight and engagement with the story.
that's it, me for a better sound system in my car!

Gotta Read the 2nd to get the 1st

Gotta read the 2nd book to get the 1st book. If you hang in there, it may be worth it.

listened to audio book - excellent as usual.

Picked right up from book one and just took off on it's own. Don't know where Ms Taylor gets her ideas, but would like a share. Julie Teal was excellent. Highly recommend this book and every other book written by Jodi Taylor.

Not something I could stand till the end

The first of this new series fell a bit flat, but this one is just really, really bad.

The story is convoluted - which might be alright.
But it is hard to follow this very, very stupid Main character through her misadventures. I kept asking myself if the author really believes that women are this stupid in general or if she actually thinks that the motif of a helpless/stupid women with some stubbornness combined with an overcompetent, calm, perfect guy is all that is needed for "romance" and that her novel might sell as such?!

Since other things seem far out of her competence here (while in other books there is humor and knowledge), she adds two other factors: brutality always dialed up to 11 (try going on for a while without rape, group rape or psychological terror from groups of mainly women) and ideas stolen from mythology without any good feeling for these or taste in arranging them.


Even the writing style is disappointing: everything is "suddenly" realized by the protagonist and always explained twice: once by what is happening and how people are reacting and then again by the protagonist, making slow sense of the world.

I hope that the last third of this would reveal that the story is actually about a woman loosing her mind instead of a woman stumbling through mythological ideas - still bad, but less idiotic.


The performance is quite good - but that really can't save the book.
I regret buying it and spending time trying to like it.
