Excellent sequel.

The first one had me hooked this one cemented new found love for Dan Wells. I really enjoy his writing and topic matter. A young man obsessed with serial killers who finds himself again in the middle of a small town killer and his investigation.

What I enjoyed about this book was really understanding how this character (John Cleaver) could be any one of us. Here is a 15 year old who tries his hardest to fit in to society but in reality he has these dark thoughts he has to keep suppressing. The FBI gets a bit too close to him, and are interested in his every thought, which of course makes him appear that much more guilty for the recent murders across town. A young boy who is obsessed with serial killers and death, who happens to live in the same town where a serial killer is doing his work? Could it be him?  One (and there were many) of my favorite lines in the book is:

Brook’s parents thought it was a great idea, partly because the nearest bus stop was about eight blocks away, but mostly because they didn’t know how many times a week I had dreams about embalming their daughter.

Dan Wells does a great job of keeping the suspense at full tilt in this sequel and I am anxious to get my hands on the third book. Heres to him making it a 10 book series.

I had a giveway of the first book in the trilogy which is still up for grabs. So now I am making it a two book giveaway. You don’t want to miss out on this story.

GIVEAWAY:

Simply comment below to win bothI Am Not A Serial Killer” and “Mr. Monster” by Dan Wells.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

I killed a demon. I don’t know if it was really, technically a demon, but I do know that he was some kind of monster, with fangs and claws and the whole bit, and he killed a lot of people. So I killed him. I think it was the right thing to do. At least the killing stopped.

Well, it stopped for a while.

In I Am Not a Serial Killer, John Wayne Cleaver saved his town from a murderer even more appalling than the serial killers he obsessively studies.

But it turns out even demons have friends, and the disappearance of one has brought another to Clayton County. Soon there are new victims for John to work on at the mortuary and a new mystery to solve. But John has tasted death, and the dark nature he used as a weapon—the terrifying persona he calls “Mr. Monster”—might now be using him.

No one in Clayton is safe unless John can vanquish two nightmarish adversaries: the unknown demon he must hunt and the inner demon he can never escape.

In this sequel to his brilliant debut, Dan Wells ups the ante with a thriller that is just as gripping and even more intense. He apologizes in advance for the nightmares.
