Summary: Adam has more than inherited his mother's curse: When he looks in someone's eyes, he not only sees the date of their death...he feels the searing, shocking pain of it. Since Jem died, Adam has lived by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But when rising tides flood the coast, they return to London. The city is an alien, exciting, frightening place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can't help but clock how many people's numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year's Day. What chaos awaits the world? Can he and Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the "twenty-sevens"?

My Thoughts: This was a great sequel to a book that I thought was a little strange. This summed up the story line in a nice way and gave me a second opinion on the first novel; Numbers. Rachel Ward really does do a great job with the description of feelings. The writing was very good. 

The story is told from two new characters perspective; Adam and Sarah. They each have their own feelings and takes on the situations at hand. It was neat to hear from each of them about the other and vice versa. All in all, it wasn't that bad.

  1. Hi Zoe! I'm stopping by from Follow Friday. Didn't mean to offend you by saying the Pretty Little Liars show is better than the books haha. I'll have to give the rest of the series a try. =]

    I'm a new follower :)

    That's What Liz Read

  2. Hi! I just found your blog, and I have yet to read Numbers! I didn't even know that it had a sequel. I love the cover though, it really caught my attention. Great review!


Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and comment! *~Zoe~*
