Book 2 in Quarantine Crack Reads. I don’t even know why I’m reviewing; the biggest events separating this from it’s follower in my memory are the relationship changes. On that note, I will say that this is a series you have to read in order. The series is very much about the main character, Grier’s, emotional and personal growth, and her discoveries about herself and her family. Each book builds on the last in both personal life and in the mysteries surrounding her.

It feels a bit second-book emotionally, with all the major events in the first needing some emotional breathing space. At first, it seems Grier will get the chance to settle, and to grow into her role as Dame Woolworth, to catch-up on necromantic learning from Linus, and to advance her relationship with Boaz. Since her prior boss won’t let her work as a tour guide, she takes a job tearing out a haunted boat so that it can be transformed into a tourist attraction. At the same time, Amelie is reporting that the actual ‘haunted’ sites of the city seem to be missing their ghost.

What more happened? Hey, I have no idea. After I finished, I went right into book three. In fact, book three’s review should probably stand for both of these reads.

As a further note, events in this book eventually become very important in the spin-off series, The Potentiate of Atlanta.

    Hm. Maybe I need to have a look at this series after all. My brain obviously needs something easy, yet entertaining, to digest…

      Yeah, Idk what to say. Objectively, they’re guilty of a lot that annoys me, but something about the emotions are sweet and real. They did jolt me out of my slump, so all credit there. Free on KU, otherwise I don’t know that I would have tried them.
