Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family, but instead of fighting off a turncoat uncle and crooked cops, this time she finds herself on the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and pale white skin chasing her through the streets in ice cream trucks; they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They're terrifying and hell bent on killing her, but they're also a link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them. While she battles these new pursuers, she's also discovering more about her own cold fury and more about the Chicago Outfit, how the past misdeeds--old murders and vendettas--might just be connected to her present and the disappearance of her family. But connecting the dots is tough and time-consuming and may finally be the undoing of her relationship with the handsome Max--who's now her boyfriend. But for his own safety, Sara Jane may have to end this relationship before it even really starts. Her pursuers who've shown her her mother's amputated finger and the head of the Chicago Outfit who's just whistled her in for a sit-down make a romance unthinkable. The only thing that matters is finding her family and keeping everyone she loves alive.
Oh, what a great sequel! I absolutely loved to be in this world again, because just like Cold Fury, it was utterly amazing, dark, thrilling, and absolutely unique, I mean, the cold fury being used by the criminal sector? That's something else!
The Ice Cream Creatures, we got to see them in Cold Fury, but in this book, we definitely got to see them more, as they proved to be pretty firm in the fact that they are, to Sara, the bad guys, like it mentions, her mom's finger. That was just really creepy!
Oh, poor Sara and Max! I really enjoyed their fledgling relationship in Cold Fury, and then they had a lot of problems in this book, from the fact that her family is still kidnapped, and the whole Chicago Outfit being after her and all, yeah, there's that!
The ending! Just as great as the first one, and yeah, I just absolutely loved it, as it was breaking my heart, because there's a wait of the next book, and I can't wait for it, but yeah, I do have to wait for it, so yeah, it's torture!
Loved this book so much, can't wait to read the last book!
