Havoc by Jeff Sampson

Publié par Léatitia

This second book in the Deviants series is just AMAZING !

I was once again caught in the story of Emily . I found the same ingredients as in the first book . There were action , humor and suspense !

" Emily Webb thought life would return to normal after the death of the man who attacked her and her fellow “Deviants.” Or as normal as it could be, after discovering that she has nighttime superpowers . . . and she’s a werewolf. But when Emily awakes one night to find an otherworldy Shadowman watching her, she knows the danger has only just begun.

So Emily and her pack-mates set out to find the people who made them what they are, and why. But as they get closer to the truth, they realize they aren’t the only ones in town with special powers: The most popular girls in school might just have a secret of their own–and they might just have it out for Emily.

With shadowy beings stalking them, a mysterious company doing all it can to keep the truth hidden, and the secrecy of her new identity in jeopardy, life threatens to spiral out of control for Emily. Soon these dangers will come together in one terrifying confrontation that may force her to make the toughest choice of her life . . . s
o far. "

We find Emily Webb and her friends just after they realized that somewhere there is another member of the pack. I can not tell you more about it but it's great ! Add to that the fact that cheerleaders are not quite "normal" and it made me think of my old favorites series (Buffy the Vampire Slayer for instance!) It's very funny and unexpected !


What I also loved is the two narrations. And this is for me a very important element in the story. It gives rhythm , clues and strength to the story. The adventures of Emily and her pack have not left my mind just because I had to temporarily close the book. Just like in the first book, I had to think hard as Emily and her team do in the story. Because of course , you should not expect that all we be served on a plate . And everything is incredibly well written and the construction is just perfect ! It may frustrate some people will be , but the mystery remains unsolved ! From the beginning of the first book to the end of Havoc, we have only partial answers. Maybe it is not a good thing and that would be a weak point. But I think it makes it even more lively and stunning.


I loved that I got to know more about the others characters. Because we can read from three points of view, it makes it really interesting. The two Emily and the wolf see and tell things in the way that we have a full descibtion of Spencer, Dalton or Megan. It is always moving, funny and teaches us something different from a point of view to another. Well I must say that I have a thing for Spencer (he is so funny and cute!) but in the end, I love everyone. Ok maybe not the cheerleaders...


What about Megan ? I was quite surprised by what happened to her. I let you discover and decide whether to want to hug her or shake her !


What I also liked was the fact that the romantic aspects of the story are not put forward all the time . I love love stories and everything that goes with it. But in this series , it's nice not to be drowned under clichés. Again, it's perfect !


I was also appealed by the mystery around Biozénith. As I said I believe in my review of the first book, this is not just the story of teenagers who become werewolf . This is MORE than that! I am so impressed with the end of Havoc.


Finally, I am SOOO looking forward to read more ! Even more than after reading the end of the first book . If you liked the first , you will therefore not be disappointed by Havoc !


I hope you liked my little review.


Thank you and enjoy your reading !
