The captivating sequel to the award-winning The Day the Angels Fell
Abra Miller carries a secret and a responsibility she never expected.
Before the Tree of Life, everything in Abra Miller’s life had been predictable. Safe. Normal. But after the Tree, everything has felt fragile . . . like holding a soap bubble in the palm of her hand. After years of fruitless searching for the next Tree, she begins to wonder if it was nothing more than a vivid dream.
Now sixteen, Abra finds a clue to the whereabouts of the next Tree of Life when an ominous woman–who looks exactly like a ghost from her past–compels her to travel to New Orleans where she’ll find one of seven gateways between this world and Over There. But she’s not the only one interested in finding the gateway. There’s also a young man searching for his father and sister, who escaped through it years before. As Abra enters the Edge of Over There and begins her pursuit of the Tree once more, she doesn’t know whom to fear or whom to trust.
She’s also starting to think that some doorways should never be opened.
My thoughts and giveaway:
I started this book knowing I didn’t read the first one and trying to come at it and take it all in.
Even though there was much I didn’t understand because I didn’t read the first book, I really liked this book. It is very different. My brain never got bored trying to connect dots and make sense of what was going on.
I think I would have liked the book even more if I had read the first one but even so I couldn’t put this book down and looked forward to when I could get back to it.
If you like things that are different, and other-worldly I think you will thoroughly enjoy this book.
