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"?
Let me just get this out of the way! I loved LOVED the first book! I loved the characters and the plot! Just the idea of seeing a person's death date by looking in their eyes is creepy! That and great writing made numbers a wonderful story. It quickly became one of my favorites.
When I heard about a squeal, I had my doubts. I didn't know if it could live up to the awesomeness of the first book. I have to be honest with you guys, I was totally off the mark. This is one great sequel! It totally lived up to the first book and had the same kind of squick factor.
I really enjoyed this one! I rate this book Awesome-Sauce!
