The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2)
By M.K. Harkins
Rated 5 stars!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. This is a great sequel!! It blends well with the first one (The Reader). The beginning starts out two years after the ending of all Jacks. Archer is living a life he doesn’t want. He secretly watches Ann and her family from afar. Since he is supposed to have perished and possibly committed murder he can not approach or he will be committed to prison after Devon works him over. So when a slip of a girl approaches Archer to warn of impending doom for Ann and her family. What will Archer do? Give himself up for Ann again? Or let her perish? What a great start right?!
I enjoy hanging out with these characters. It started in The Reader and it continues here in The Jack. We still get to see Devon and Ann but we are able to learn more about Archer (yes!) and Lucy. Lucy is a force to be reckoned with..I can’t wait to get her story (Hopefully). Archer…..well he can’t catch a break! He seems to be in the same position as the last book. Love triangle! Grrr! That poor boy! He has skills and is cute with his blond looks. He is fun and that smile is charming. When it isn’t covered by sadness and guilt.
There are new characters (good and bad) that we meet. They all add some fun and adventure to the story. A few we get more insight as they have a more active role. My favorite was Sadie. She has some fire and stubbornness to her. Plus she is a forward thinker which will help out the main crew. Her and Archer are kinda like oil and water….at first.
The story drew me in and kept my interest. I loved the idea of the Readers, Jacks and Seers. Plus they live in a mountain! Seriously how ingenious! The gadgets they have are so cool! It’s a fascinating world these people live in. The story moves forward nicely and I struggled to figure out who the bad people were. Which was awesome! I enjoy stories that intrigue me and keep me guessing. Ha ha that’s what makes me speed through….so I can figure it out. The author keeps me interested by giving information out but not too much. Very well done!
This is easily a favorite series and I look forward to reading more. I can’t wait to see how Archer, Sadie, Devon and Ann fare in future stories. Oh and I don’t want to forget Lucy!
