The curse of the NUM8ERS continues in Rachel Ward's CHA0T1C, earth-shattering sequel!
Adam has more than inherited his mother's curse: When he looks in someone's eyes, he not only sees the date of their death...he feels the searing, shocking pain of it. Since Jem died, Adam has lived by the sea with his great-grandmother, Val. But when rising tides flood the coast, they return to London. The city is an alien, exciting, frightening place. Most disturbing of all, Adam can't help but clock how many people's numbers are in January 2027; how many are on New Year's Day. What chaos awaits the world? Can he and Sarah stop a catastrophe? Or are they, too, counted among the "twenty-sevens"?
What a horrible world with some really wonderful characters, or horrible characters! Loved it! They lived in a terrible world, and they either let it destroy them, or they fought back, and then kept going. And that strength, even faced with almost insurmountable odds, that they just kept going, well, that was pretty amazing to me.
I loved the reactions to his "power" whether they found out by accident, which ended badly for all involved, including Adam, to him intentionally telling them, which saved lives. Even if it wasn't as many as he wanted, he still did save some. And that was really good! Loved that!
Loved how Adam and Sarah were together, because she had gone through some really horrible things, and she still made it out, and she had Mia without painkillers, she was very strong! And her dream, that complicated things between them, and when it actually happened, it was better then she thought, because he didn't take Mia, she gave him Mia, and that made a world of difference for her.
I just loved this book, really great, must read book 1,and book 3 when it comes out! Now go check it out!
