Jess's Review ~ Sick Remedies by Natalie Bennett

Sick Remedies (Pretty Lies, Ugly Truths 2) My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This is the follow-up to Sweet Poisons and it held most of the answers I was waiting for. You must read book one first and I actually had to go back to it because it had been a while between the two books.

This does pick up where book one leaves you hanging and does answer many of the questions that had been left, I do feel like this are not all resolved though. The book ends fairly abruptly and I was left unsettled. It was like a happy for now, while not really happy because the book is not sunshine and roses it is more like blood and thorns.

We had two very dysfunctional characters who are both a bit twisted and tortured in their own ways. Together Nova and Rhett are like a bomb going off. Nova is not the innocent girl she let people believe she was. Rhett is still the deadly leader he was before, but his story a bit more fleshed out. This book answers some of what everyone was hiding, it was bloody and held the right amount of suspense and darkness.

I have read a number of books from this author and I come to expect the craziness she puts on paper. This world is far from done and the other characters have stories to tell. I look forward to seeing what kind of havoc they will cause next.
