Mr. Reilly’s book are like sneaking a piece of chocolate when you are on a diet … definitely a guilty pleasure. The second in the series brings us back in touch with Jack and Lily about a year after the previous book. Once again earth is in peril and there is no shortage of action. I did find however, that this book had a little more character development. I enjoyed it more than the first one because of that (but Mr. Reilly still loves his rolling boulders). To coin a phrase … the ending is most definitely a cliff hanger! Looking forward to the third in the series, but I think I need a little respite before I tackle it. On to other reads for a bit.
