Tommy Nightmare (The Paranormals #2)- Book Review Thursday
*SPOILER WARNING!!* If you haven’t ready Jenny Pox yet, then you might want to skip this.
Tommy was nothing more than an orphaned boy forced through the foster care system, cursed with the ability to make people feel fear. After a life time of running cons and committing serious crimes with his power, Tommy landed himself in jail. After seeing a television show featuring Fallen Oaks’ own Ashleigh Goodling, Tommy realizes that she is his opposite so he sets out to find her. When he arrives in Fallen Oaks to join forces, he learns about what Jenny did, and decides to make her pay for murdering Ashleigh. When he reconnects with a childhood crush with the ability to listen to the dead, Tommy and Esmeralda set to bring Ashleigh back and bring Jenny down.
After the massacre, Jenny Morton and Seth Barrett are trying to find a sense of normalcy in the nearly empty town. Insecurities and family duties threaten to tear the couple apart. When Darcy Metcalf suddenly starts acting like Jenny’s friend, Jenny beings to wonder if she and Seth will truly be okay.
A serious epidemic sweeps through Fallen Oaks and Dr. Heather Reynard of Center for Disease Control, along with the National Guard are brought in to find the source of the devastation. With no leads and so many people either missing or unidentified, Heather is concerned about finding the source. After meeting Darcy Metcalf, Heather is persuaded to look deeper in to Jenny Morton. When the evidence begins to pile up, Heather has to decided what to do next.
Tommy Nightmare is a great sequel to Jenny Pox. It was very well developed and mostly a page turner. It lagged a bit for me in certain spots, but the over all story was fantastic. J.L. Bryan has truly built a world and a mythology here that is second to none. My one of my favorite New Adult series thus far. I definitely recommend it!
