Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family, but instead of fighting off a turncoat uncle and crooked cops, this time she finds herself on the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and pale white skin chasing her through the streets in ice cream trucks; they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They're terrifying and hell bent on killing her, but they're also a link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them.
While she battles these new pursuers, she's also discovering more about her own cold fury and more about the Chicago Outfit, how the past misdeeds--old murders and vendettas--might just be connected to her present and the disappearance of her family. But connecting the dots is tough and time-consuming and may finally be the undoing of her relationship with the handsome Max--who's now her boyfriend. But for his own safety, Sara Jane may have to end this relationship before it even really starts.
Her pursuers who've shown her her mother's amputated finger and the head of the Chicago Outfit who's just whistled her in for a sit-down make a romance unthinkable. The only thing that matters is finding her family and keeping everyone she loves alive.
I really enjoyed reading Flicker & Burn by TM Goeglein. It is a fantastic book with lots of action. It had my attention from the very beginning all the way to the end.
Sara Jane Rispoli is a young beautiful teenage girl who lives in Chicago. Something has happened to her family and is looking for them. She wants answers to what happened and why. Ever since their disappearance, Sara has been watched and followed by these strange looking creatures. She doesn’t know why and what they want from her. Sara has a special ability that only certain people know about. What could her special ability be?
The Rispoli family has a long history of being involved in the Chicago Outfit, an organization (The Mob). Their history goes way back with her great grandfather. Sara has been involved helping the Chicago Outfit so the mob boss doesn’t get suspicious about where her father has been.
Sara Rispoli’s adventure continues. She isn’t alone in this, she has her friend Doug helping her figure things out. Will Sara ever find her family and get the answers she is looking for?
As I was reading this awesome book, I felt like I was right there by Sara Jane Rispoli’s side through all the action and feeling her emotions of trying to find her missing family.
TM Goeglein has done an amazing job writing this action/adventure book. Flicker & Burn is book 2 in the Series. I am looking forward to going back and reading book 1, Cold Fury where it all began. I definitely recommend my friends to read it.
I give this awesome book 5 Dandy's!
