"So, who are you then, Todd Hewitt?" he says. "What makes you so special?
Now that, I think, is a very good asking.

Oh, what a turn. Just enough predictability so nothing seemed too far-fetched, but a healthy amount of mystery and twist elements. The second book of the Chaos Walking trilogy takes a very dark road in an already bleak universe. Thankfully, I checked out both books two and three at the same time so as soon as I finish this review, I'll be moving on to the next.

Todd Hewitt, how are you going to fix this?

wasnโ€™t excepting to cry over davy prentiss but oh the character development. this is in no way a romance book but Todd and violas lil background relationship is everything. not sure how much Iโ€™ll enjoy the last book as itโ€™s going to be 100 per cent war, but todd and 1017 better make up at some point

"As to how you'll help me," he says. "Well, we have met the Answer, have we not?" He turns back to look at us, his eyes glinting. "It is time for them to meet the Ask."

A good enough sequel I think. This book is really fast-paced and action-packed it's like bam bam one after the other. I loved it that they included Viola's pov in this sequel. And you can see the difference between her and Todd's pov and Viola's a bit cleaner I must say, in terms of grammar and spelling and so on, but I like them both. It's consistent.ย 

I guess I'm rating this lower than the first book because there are some parts which drive me crazy but actually I liked the ending better. I mean at first, it's just super annoying what Todd was doing, he keeps doing wrong things over and over again and what do you know another love interest is introduced hey heyyy. I can't even decide if I like Lee or not cause he was just come and go, but I kind hated him a little. He was getting in the way of things. And I loved Viola!! ๐Ÿ˜ She knew she didn't feel that way toward Lee and she didn't prolong his suffering lol.ย 

I also liked that we got to see how both main characters got their spotlight in this book, and we see their "true potential". Davy got his redemption arc and it turns out he's got some MAJOR daddy issues, poor thing. It's also cool that Todd got another "pet", a horse ๐ŸŽ and you can see that he treats Angharrad much better than he treated Manchee (at first) cause he's missed Manchee so much aaaa my heart ๐Ÿ’“.

Moving on to the VILLAIN ๐Ÿ˜ˆ or should I say villainS? Mayor Prentiss is the classic evil, greedy, manipulative and powerful villain. I think he was a good villain (lol) and he's smart, and I like to see that.
SpoilerMistress Coyle, okay I thought she'd be nice cause this is after all a children's book. But it's not black and white in this story, and in fact you get even another enemy at the end of the book, so yay!
ย 

Overall, solid. I liked it.
