My Opinion:
I had no idea this was a sequel.
Doesn't matter, it was still a decent audiobook.
There are parts in the story that are slightly disturbing so prepare yourself. I have to tell you though, I'm the type of thriller reader that loves the disturbing stuff. It's what scares you and keeps you reading. I've also learned not to do this kind of reading, home alone at night. Just sayin'.....
I felt bad for the main character in this story. His life, so tragic. I couldn't imagine how someone like that would feel if it was real life, and yet, I believe stuff like that happens too.
There were some very dramatic moments and I liked that. 
With it being an audiocopy, I'll tell you the narrator had a very hypnotic voice. Like one you would hear on the radio. Deep and nice. Very easy to listen to. Though I found myself drifting off in the very end. Maybe too dramatic at that point... 
Definitely an author I will look out for. Though maybe next time I'll start with the beginning of the series.... 

3/5

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
