The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle Paige

the-wicked-will-riseI have a feeling this will end up being my least favorite out of all of the books. Just because I’ve found that the second book in a series like this is usually just filler. In a way, this book meets that assumption. That’s just because by the time it ends, nothing has truly been accomplished. That doesn’t mean it isn’t good! It’s great!!

I did love this book because it answered almost all of my questions from the first book. Forty pages in and I was bragging to my friends how I was, “finally getting answers!!” Of course, after finishing, I have more questions that will – HOPEFULLY – by answered in book three. Also, *possible spoiler alert* but Pete is a friggin’ punk and a half. Never trust a man with big, beautiful, green eyes. -_-

I so desperately wanted Amy to be able to help him. I was trying to think of ways myself! And although I understand his feelings behind what he did, that doesn’t make it okay. Part of me is saying screw him, save Ozma, sayonara Pete . . . but more of me is still saying save both of them, then just never talk to Pete again – that will probably be the better option for Amy. I could have called her “battle with the darkness” from a hundred billion miles away, blindfolded, but I am enjoying how it’s playing out. Every time you think, “Oh. She’s done with it. She knows better now, she’s fine.” Then she’s turning into a – literal – monster right in front of you! These books are great! I’m enjoying them so much.
