Break You (Andrew Z. Thomas/Luther Kite #3) by Blake Crouch – I hate it when the author doesn’t tie up the loose ends. There was a lot left unexplained in this book. And the stories that he wrote with Jack Kilborn just glossed over these characters. Otherwise the series was great.
Ominous (Private #13) by Kate Brian – Technically, this is not the last book in the series, but I haven’t read the very last one. I am disappointed in the direction the last books of the series went.
Seeds of Yesterday (Flowers in the Attic #5) by V. C. Andrews – I re-read the Flowers in the Attic series because I read the first three books as a teen and never finished. The series wasn’t bad for being V. C. Andrews, but enough is enough.
The MacGregor’s by Nora Robert – I loved this whole series.
Doctor Sleep (The Shining #2) – loved the sequel to one of my favorite books.
Mockingjay (Hunger Games #3) by Suzanne Collins – one of my favorite series.
On Christmas Day in 1893, every man, woman and child in a remote gold mining town disappeared, belongings forsaken, meals left to freeze in vacant cabins; and not a single bone was ever found. One hundred thirteen years later, two backcountry guides are hired by a history professor and his journalist daughter to lead them into the abandoned mining town so that they can learn what happened. With them is a psychic, and a paranormal photographer—as the town is rumored to be haunted. A party that tried to explore the town years ago was never heard from again. What this crew is about to discover is that twenty miles from civilization, with a blizzard bearing down, they are not alone, and the past is very much alive.
Blake Crouch is one of my favorite authors. His books pull you in from the first page and do not let go until the last. Sometimes I get tired of the same old stories with the same old plots because I read so many books, but Blake Crouch thinks outside of the box. This is a story of greed that spans over 116 years. I didn’t think I would like the story switching back and forth between 1893 and 2009 because most of the time I don’t. It gets confusing trying to keep track of the characters and plotlines, but I didn’t have that problem with this book. The author does a very good job and keeps the suspense going until the very end. I didn’t expect the ending of this book at all. It is horrible what greed will drive some people to do.
