Colony East

Colony East - Scott Cramer

Disclaimer: I received this book free of charge from the author, in exchange I promised to write an honest review.

Colony East picks right up where Night of the Purple Moon left off. Our heroes are hiding from the motorcycle gang while waiting for Jordan to be better. They thought that once they got the pills from the adults that everything would turn out good, but events just seem to get worse as time goes by. Before you know it two years have passed and the adults have come out of hiding, but is that necessarily a good thing?

This was an excellent sequel to Night of the Purple Moon. I had very few moments of disbelief while reading. One was the way that Jordan was acting. He seemed so out of character and vengeful from what I remembered and his teenage angst seemed unbelievable in many ways. This did not detract from the story for me though. While I felt there was way more violence than in the previous book, I did find it in character for this world and people.

This book was, like the previous book, clean with no objectionable language or situations. There was just the right amount of action and chew your nails situations. I was on the edge of my seat reading and literally praying that the characters made it out or through safely. I just love Scott Cramer's world and the characters are very real to life. I could see the military and scientists, instead of helping, making a mess of things. When I got to the end of the book, the author stopped at a cliff hanger that literally left me disappointed that I will have to wait to find out what happens. Whether Jordan, Abby and Lisette will ever be together again. I have to say that Scott Cramer has definitely made it to my favorite author's list. :D  Keep up the good work!!!
