Twilight Prisoner by Katherine Marsh

This book was suggested for inclusion on our blog but I do not have a copy of it in hand to jot down the first sentence. If anyone has a copy and wants to let me know the first sentence, I'll be happy to jot it down here, otherwise -- be patient -- I'll put it in as soon as our Library receives the book or the ARC is returned.

The abstract is hidden because it may contain spoilers. If you would like to read the full summary, simply use your cursor to highlight the next few lines and it will magically appear.

In an effort to impress a female classmate, high school sophomore Jack Perdu endangers both of their lives by taking her to New York City's Underworld, where those who died in New York reside until they are ready to move on.

Publisher: Hyperion; 246 pages

"The Twilight Prisoner was just OK. The prequel to this story was a lot better so it made this story lose a bit of its wonder because of all of the fabulous things that happened in the first book. A lot was used again in the second book making it somewhat boring in comparison to its fast-paced companion.

Having not read the first book, I was slightly nervous going into this book that I would not get a lot of what was going on. However, I only felt once, when Jack refered to a promise to Euri, that I felt a little lost. So, I guess I felt the other side of what Mary felt, that it was nice not to be completely lost coming in on the second book. I don't have a real desire to read the first book though, so I guess that says something for this one. I agree with Mary, it was just OK.

Thanks for your comment, Jill. Just to be clear... it was actually Peter's comment to which you were referring.

Thanks Mary, you are right, I did not correctly reference what I was talking about. I went back and found the sentences I was referencing: "He (Jack) had made a promise to Cora, and now he would keep it. He wouldn't fail her the way he'd failed Euri." I am not sure what Jack is speaking of when he said he'd failed Euri, so I am assuming that is something I missed from the first book.
