We step forward in time with the second book in this series. Alex Jones is back, along with several of the supporting characters from the first book, but he's moved to New York and started working as a detective. His past comes back to haunt him, proving that he was never fully able to escape the evil that plagued him in the first novel.
C.L. Brees has done an excellent job with this new book. If you've read the first novel (which I recommend doing) you will see a significant leap in editorial and writing style. You can tell that this author is improving with each new debut. The plot moves along quickly and will again keep you guessing what might happen next. I will say that I was really surprised by the events toward the end of this book, but I think it nicely sets up what will likely be the 3rd novel in this series.
This book could be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading the first in this series before jumping into Dark Ending. You will benefit from a lot of the back story that occurred in book 1.
This would be a great book to read over the winter months, curled up under a blanket. Well done!
