Picking up where The knife of Never Letting Go leaves off, The Ask and the Answer is an emotional roller coaster full of action, suspense and a love worth dying for.
This sequel builds on the foundation of the first book and turns events that seem simple into something extraordinary. Separated and longing for each other, Todd and Viola have to endure trials and tribulations that will test their devotion to each other and their loyalty to themselves.
I loved this book even more than the first. Patrick Ness has a way of making you feel so much for his characters. My heart breaks for Todd and Viola through every test they have to endure. The story’s twist and turns really kept me guessing. What else could possibly happen to these two? How much more pain and suffering will they have to endure? Will they ever find the peace they so deserve?
The introduction of new characters creates a larger world and the way characters from the first book evolve was surprising. My thoughts on certain characters totally changed during the course of the book.
Next up book 3. I’ll be so sorry to finish this series. I don’t want it to end! It’s that good!
