The Haunted by Jessica Verday
After reading The Hollow, I knew I would need to read The Haunted because of how much build up The Hollow had for The Haunted. And it did live up to all the build up. I found the characters had grown into who they are more than they had before. I really enjoyed Abbey more than I did in The Hollow. She was much stronger, more independent and she handled tough decisions much better than she did before. I also enjoyed how the relationships played out between her and all the other characters around her. In the end she made a very tough decision about her future. Another thing that I thought had been improved on since the last book was the pacing of the story, I really liked how evenly spread the exciting scenes were throughout the book. The one downside with The Haunted that it had the feel of too much building up for the next book. Altogether, I enjoyed The Haunted quite a bit and I would definitely give it a 4/5 for being a fairly exciting read and for making me want to pick up the next book.
