a fun, action-packed western adventure, not set in the old west, but in the tiny international hub of Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The history of the town and the nation are exquisitely detailed in this short work of fiction.
Definitely the best free book I've read in a long time. The characters were well-written and well-rounded. I could really identify with Mary and, as an adult, want to smack her guidance counselor.
A definite must read for young adults wanting something different.
I am only giving it a 4/5 due to a few minor grammatical problems, not enough to detract from the enjoyment of the story, but the occasional "she" does take some figuring out as to who it refers.
The book starts off a little slow, but picks up pace about halfway through when the characters start to realize what they're up against.
I didn't expect the ending.
All in all, I got more than $3.99 worth of blood, gore and entertainment
Well written with believable characters...if you can believe in a girl who talks to the dead. A good read for adults, as well as teens.
It was well worth the $0.99. I would gladly pay four times that.
Some minor grammer problems, otherwise it would get a full five stars.
Anxiously awaiting book 3.
This one started out a little slow, but picked up and I soon found that I couldn't put it down. I found the addition of boyfriend problems and her friendship with Rachel getting tested added a nice layer of real teen issues to Mary's already messed up life. This was definitely a fun read and it's nice to see that this series isn't diminishing in quality.
I loved the characters and the setting, everything felt very real. I loved Meg's obsession with Kitty being the person behind Margaret's fall that was so strong she missed some very obvious things going on around her.
The book could have done with a little more editing, there was the occasional grammatical hiccup, but the story was good enough to overlook them.
If there is a sequel, I will most likely be picking it up.
S. A. Hunter's Scary Mary series is still running strong. The characters are still alive and wonderful, the stories still fresh and imaginative. I hope she can keep it up forever. This is another wonderful book.
It felt shorter than the others. I'm not sure if it is shorter, or I just got so into it that I read it quicker.
Old characters return and new ones join the cast, including some of Mary's relatives. It looks to be an interesting family.
The story takes Mary out of school and on location at an actual haunted house. It gives usual antagonist, Vicky, most of the book off , I assume to recharge her B**** powers to be extra strong in book five.
I really can't wait for book 5!
The only reason this isn't getting five stars is because of the editing. I subscribe to her newsletter and know that she went without outside editing to get it out on time. The book shows it (my favorite is some lines that are actually crossed out!).
This is a great book, but if you're a stickler for grammar, wait until the edited version comes out. There are a few areas that I had to reread to figure out what was meant due to missing words and odd phrasing.
Read this a while ago and forgot to leave my review. This is definitely an interesting sequel, but the first book was so enjoyable that I find anything would have difficulty living up to that.
This was still a wonderful read and a great ending to the first book. I read through it very quickly.
Much like the first book, there are characters that I love and characters that I want to slap--Tavik always get's himself on both lists.
If you enjoyed Unicorn Bait, you'll enjoy this continuation of the story of Tavik and Naomi.
This was probably not the book to start this series with. It was somewhat confusing as the story changes characters, at first feeling like two separate stories, but it never got so weird that I set it down. Reading to the end, the confusion is explained, why characters are added and relationships changed from the opening, so things do make sense in the end. There was soem foreshadowing, but I seemed to have missed a good portion of it until I got further into the story.
I did enjoy it and look forward to learning more about these characters in other books, so I do recommend it, just not as the first read in the series.
