"I was sixteen the second time I had my first kiss...."
At the end of AMBER HOUSE, Sarah made a choice that transformed everything--and now she must choose it all again.
Things are very different--better--for Sarah and her family: her Aunt Maggie grew up; her parents are happily married; her grandmother died after a long, productive and respected life. But other things are different too, and not for the better.
After growing up in the free country of the Pacific Northwest, Sarah Parsons has settled in at Amber House, the stately Maryland home that's been in her family for generations. But the world surrounding the House feels deeply wrong to Sarah. It's a place where the colonists lost the 1776 Insurrection, where the American Confederation of States still struggles with segregation, and where Sarah is haunted by echoes of a better world that she knows never existed.
Her friend Jackson shares these visions of a different world--and together, they manage both to remember the way things ought to be, and to plan a daring mission that will reset the universe once again. Sarah must figure out what has changed, and why, and how she can fix it--how she can find her way to another otherwhen
My Review: I really wanted to like this series. But Book one wasn't the best, and book 2, well this disappointed me.
It started off too slow for me, and the detaisl just didn't hit. I would have like to have some more details thrown in, enough to make me want to grab this book. Though, I did enjoy many parts of this book as well. I do like the story line. The book is much happier in the family sense than it was in the last book. Though it doesn't mean everything was now perfect for Sarah. Strange things are still going on. Like this other world she didn't know existed and she is now connected to it.
There were many points where I lost intrest, then it would pick up and I wouldn't want to put it down. Then something would happen to lose my intrest again. It was a back and forth thing, until it got near the end. Thats where it picked up and I finished right from there.
Not sure if I'll finish this series, not the best for me, but I'm sure it'll be amazing for others.
