    Great Book!

    Characters I already loved the characters from Book One so it is no surprise that I continued to enjoyed them in Book Two. I found each character relatable, realistic and well developed. Book Two explores a few different characters in more detail but the focus remains on Eric and Jessica. The tension between some of the characters in the book was intense and it felt gripping. I found myself unable to put this book down because I needed to know how someone was going to react to whatever happened next. Similarly, the fear that consumed Jessica was so real and well written that I felt it myself. The author really succeeded in describing emotions and thought processes and I was very impressed. Plot I would not necessarily say this is a fast paced book, but there was so much tension and emotion that it felt like things were constantly happening. I really enjoyed this flow of events. When I started reading I was a bit confused about how much time had been skipped between Book One and Book Two. There were mentions of American holidays and school terms but, not being an American, these were lost on me. A more specific timeline was explained further on but I would have liked it earlier. Something occurred at the end of the book that was accepted by certain characters very easily. I would have liked to have had more of an explanation as to why this was accepted. It was the only part of the plot that I felt was a bit rushed and needed some more work. World There was more description in the start of Book Two than I remember being in Book One, which I really appreciated. However, there were still places that I would have liked to have had more description. For example, everyone always seemed to go straight upstairs at Eric’s house, but what was downstairs? I was not sure what the characters saw when they first entered the house. I also still had some confusion about the limitations of powers, but it did not bother me as much as it did in Book One. Grammar and Writing This was another well written book. I might have come across one typo but it was very well done overall. Overall I have to admit, I enjoyed Book Two more than I enjoyed Book One, which is rare for me. This makes me even more excited to read Book 3! I am definitely glad that I finally picked up the series again.

    Can't wait to read the next book!

    I received a free copy of this book with the option of leaving an honest review. As much as I enjoyed Minutes Before Sunset, I was really blown away by Seconds Before Sunrise! Thompson expanded upon the foundation that she laid in the first book and did a wonderful job of fleshing out the main characters. Readers will learn more about the prophecy, the history of the Light and the Dark, the Elders, Eric, and Jessica. Thompson also leaves readers with the nagging impression that there might be more to one of Jessica's male friends than meets the eye. Thompson expertly built suspense for the final battle, but I felt that the battle was a letdown. After all, it was a battle that Eric was destined to fight and win and I was expecting it to be a bit more epic. Given that this is a clean novel, I didn't anticipate reading all of the gory details; however, I felt that it could have been grander. It may be that Thompson is saving the best for last as the "final battle" really didn't go as prophesized, and there is one more book left in the series. The interactions between the characters are compelling, and Thompson has managed to keep them fresh and interesting while maintaining a clean love interest between Jessica and Eric. Thompson really has a flair for clean romance! It's not saccharine and cute, it's not overly dramatic with grandiose protestations of love, but readers are left with a definite impression that Jessica and Eric are meant to be together. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to read the next book in the series to find out if my suspicions are correct. If you enjoyed Twilight and books like it, I think you'll enjoy the plot and the romance in The Timely Death Trilogy.
