In the compelling sequel to Blackbird, Anna Carey delivers a gritty and adrenaline-filled story of a girl desperate to escape her mysterious and terrifying assailants. Told in second person, this heart-pounding thriller puts the reader in front of the target.
A week ago, you woke up in Los Angeles with no memory of who you are. The only thing you knew: people are trying to kill you. You put your trust in Ben, but he betrayed you and broke your heart. Now you’ve escaped to New York City with a boy named Rafe, who says he remembers you from before. But the two of you are not safe. The same people who are after you are tailing Rafe as well. As the chase heats up, your memory starts to return, but your past cannot save you from the terrifying circumstances of your present, or the fact that one wrong move could end this game forever.
With enemies on every side, and not a reprieve in sight, Deadfall will grab readers and refuse to let go. Perfect for fans of the Maze Runner series and the Legend series.
I really loved the first book in this duology and could not wait to get into this one! I devoured it in one sitting and cannot praise it enough! I enjoy Ms. Carey’s writing and also loved her Eve Trilogy but these books are a complete different storyline.
If you enjoy mystery/psychological thrillers, then you would really enjoy this duology! I can tell you that I enjoyed the first book but LOVED the second! The stakes were amped up in the second book and as you start to really unravel the mystery, the more thrilling and heart pounding the read got!
At first, I had forgotten that these books are told in the second person which puts the reader as the main character and it threw me off a little but once I got use to it, I really enjoyed reading this way!
I enjoyed the ending and was glad for the way that the author chose to end her story. I shed quite a few tears because the ending is not completely happy but it kept the reader on their toes not knowing what was going to happen next!
