    Wow! Book Two has every bit as many twists and turns, interlaced with scary stuff as Book One. It seems as though every chapter brings something more to capture my imagination. I couldn't believe this book left me twisting in the wind (like Book One) AGAIN! I'm at a loss to explain how exciting it is to read these books. I am SO hooked! I can't imagine how the author is going to keep up this pace through seven books.......but I intend to find out! Each character is so wonderfully complex, allowi Wow! Book Two has every bit as many twists and turns, interlaced with scary stuff as Book One. It seems as though every chapter brings something more to capture my imagination. I couldn't believe this book left me twisting in the wind (like Book One) AGAIN! I'm at a loss to explain how exciting it is to read these books. I am SO hooked! I can't imagine how the author is going to keep up this pace through seven books.......but I intend to find out! Each character is so wonderfully complex, allowing the author to make them move seamlessly from one situation to the next. I think I know what direction the story is going......and then someone (who I thought was important to the story) dies in some gruesome manner....and the story ends up being complete even with that person gone. If I could spend the rest of my time reading books like this, I would be such a happy camper......but books like this don't come along nearly often enough. Just in case you are wondering what age group this story would appeal to.....well, I'm 70 now and know I would have loved reading it when I was 12! That's saying something! This author can't write and publish fast enough! I'm suffering here, waiting for the next book! I need to stop here before I sound too gushy.....but if you miss out on this story, you are really missing something special.

    After reading From Away: Book One, I had to read From Away: Book Two by Deke Mackey, Jr., if for no other reason than to see how the cliffhanger from book one was resolved. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review. In book two, Dawn continues her quest to learn more about her Mossley Island relatives, and finds herself becoming immersed in the fifty-year-old horror that surrounds the island. Accepted by some of her island clan, but rejected by others, she is unaware of plots After reading From Away: Book One, I had to read From Away: Book Two by Deke Mackey, Jr., if for no other reason than to see how the cliffhanger from book one was resolved. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my review. In book two, Dawn continues her quest to learn more about her Mossley Island relatives, and finds herself becoming immersed in the fifty-year-old horror that surrounds the island. Accepted by some of her island clan, but rejected by others, she is unaware of plots to extract revenge on her father for imagined past wrongs, or of the strange beings that instill fear in the hearts of some on the island. Death lurks around every corner, and there is plot within plot. No one is who they seem in this chilling tale of arcane horror. This is book two in a planned seven book series, and as I expected after reading the first, it ends with a cliffhanger—actually two; Dawn disappears mysteriously from her motel room, and her father’s colleague, injured in an attack and left in a coma, wakes up to strangeness that you’ll just have to read. I find myself hooked on this series; and, I don’t usually read series.
