Book review: Deadfall (Blackbird #2)

deadfall a careyAfter discovering she is part of a sick, twisted game in “Blackbird”, Sunny plans to flee to Chicago and safety.  Before she can leave L.A., however, she meets Rafe, a boy she’s been having dreams about while her memory slowly returns.  Together, they go to New York to meet with other targets and work together to take down the conspiracy that threatens their lives.

This book was fast paced and exciting.  I had trouble putting it down.  Every chapter left me wanting to find out what was going to happen.  I wish it had been a little longer and had delved a little more into things.  I liked that Lena (Sunny in the first book) and Rafe met up with other targets, but I wish we had learned more about them.  Their personalities were drawn in rough brush strokes, and I wish I could have gotten to know them more.  I didn’t feel this book was as well developed as the first one, but I did think that the second person point of view flowed a lot better.  I liked the device in both books, but the author seemed a lot more comfortable with it in this version.  This book is definitely on my reread list.
