Good If…You liked Cathy’s Book.
Summary: (Taken from Amazon)
This exciting sequel to Cathy’s Book, now available in paperback, is sure to enthrall young adult readers as it aligns events for the much anticipated third book later in Spring.
Cathy has finally settled her curiosity about Victor—her off and on boyfriend—and his mysterious past. Suffice it to say that dating an immortal is far from easy! But now Cathy is stumbling across a trail of evidence pertaining to her own family—secrets about her father and the circumstances surrounding his death. Having an immortal boyfriend is sure to come in handy as her investigation continues, considering Cathy’s father is still alive. . . . Complete with evidence photos and a sixteen-page teaser for the third book, Cathy’s Key is sure to please!
My Thoughts: Once again, I fail to be stunned by this series which is why I’m putting both reviews together. I don’t have all that much to say.
Like with Cathy’s Book, I felt these two had so much potential. The ideas were new and original and the idea of an interactive book is cool. But it turned out that the interactive things were the only good parts of the series.
The characters fell flat. Their personalities changed too much. The plot was slightly confusing and never filled out to its full potential. It just moved around quickly without any character or world building.
I must give the ending of Cathy’s Ring some credit. It was quite bittersweet and was a greatway to end the book (or maybe even the series?).
Other than that, there’s not much for me to say. I didn’t really get too much out of the serie and I can’t really recommend it. If you do end up reading it, definitely call the numbers and visit the websites. You’ll be surprised what you find out.
