It feels like it was only yesterday when I wrote my review on âThe Hurricaneâ by R.J. Prescott â where I mentioned how important it was to know that there would be a sequel to that book.
AND HERE IT IS â¦ âThe Aftermathâ (The Hurricane #2) by R.J. Prescott
I learned that the author never planned on it to be a series â but for someone not planning on this she did an unbelievable good job at it. And I truly hope that there will be enough demand on this book that she will give the secondary characters their own book too
(#Kieran first – yeah â Dear Author â I hold you to your promise on that one)
Let me advise the interested reader of this book that he needs to read the first book in order to understand the second one. Having done that I have to say â it only took me a few pages to get right back into the story â which is an excellent sign for a book given the fact that I read several books a week and it is already like 6 months ago that I read the first one from this author.
Sometimes I cannot remember the leading characters names after 24 hours but NOT with this book. Prescottâs characters are so well developed and that even the secondary ones are coming alive in your imagination.
Most storys evolving around people from an âirish workingâ background tend to be dark and depressing, but within the pages of this book the author managed to create a slightly uplifting picture even if she never lost sight of the roots.
I liked the message that was coming trough to me while reading it and also the funny and witty banter amongst this selfmade family that would never even bend to any outside force.
I can not wait to get another book about that crazy bunch â¦
