I really love them together, their the perfect match. There are so many twists and turns in this story. You pretty much don’t really know what the heck is going on. But it’s perfectly written that way. It keeps you guessing till the end. The truth is there but it’s not easily found. Cross has quickly become one of my favorite, go to authors. Her writing style is brilliant. She’s able to make this characters come to life, you almost feel as if you’re there yourself. Fighting alongside Eleanor. Will there be a #3 in this series? I don’t know. But I honestly believe there should be. I know I’ll be first in line to read. This is a great young adult thrilling mystery series and I can’t wait to jump in again.
