Now on the run from the Lyle House, Tori, Derek, Simon, and Chloe, have to find Derek and Simon’s father, Kit, and his friend Andrew before they get caught again. However, as they try to escape from various new obstacles, they start discovering the truths behind the Lyle House and their powers.

Like the first book in the series, I’m re-reading and re-reviewing this book as well, so that I can make a better review for it. ^^

Anyways, comparing the plot and set-up of this book to this first one of the series, I like this book better. It had more descriptions, events, and other factors to keep you interested. Also, there are fewer plot holes since the author develops it more into a novel than an introductory one. The author kind of redeems the series by actually answering some of the questions, instead of having nothing but confusion and mystery like the first book did.

Also, the personalities of the characters seem a little bit better. At least, Chloe’s personality seems to be a lot better. She’s a little bit less pitiful and whiny than the first book, but not by much. The other characters still grab your attention more than the main character, but the change in Chloe’s personality makes it easier to pay attention to her narration.

This book makes it feel like the series is actually going somewhere with its more in-depth plot, change in the main female character’s personality, descriptions, and better and more complete ending. Anyways, it really is a better read than the first book, so go ahead and read this one.
