Passionaries

Author: Tonya Hurley 
Pages: 400 
Publisher: Simon & Schuster 
Format: Paperback (ARC) 
My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


Summary (from Goodreads): Agnes, Cecelia, and Lucy watched as Sebastian sacrificed himself for what he believed in. Will the girls trust that their destiny as saints and martyrs and perform the miracles as Sebastian instructed? Or lose faith in themselves and each other in his absence? Time is running out for them to make a decision, and the fate of the world lies in the balance. 









Disclaimer: I received a copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.

My Summary: Agnes, Cecelia, and Lucy are destined to be saints and martyrs - or so they've been told. Now, with Sebastian gone, they'll have to rely on each other more than ever in order to do as Sebastian wanted and perform the miracles they've been entrusted with. But with him gone, it's harder than ever to believe in themselves, their faith, and their mission ... and time may be running out.  

My Thoughts: Having read the first novel in the series, I knew that the second was going to be a wild ride. There's nothing worse than a sequel that doesn't live up to the first in the series, right?

I loved the dark, creepy feeling of the group hunting the girls. The installment definitely upped the ante of the series (even if I did miss Sebastian). I loved the atmosphere of the novel, and I felt like the setting fit the story perfectly - who knew Brooklyn could be so creepy? 

The author's signature dark humour really made it easy to connect with the girls, and the characters were written perfectly: you felt their struggle to accept their destinies, and you watched them come to terms with knowing that they were no longer just normal teens. 

Final Thoughts: Having finished this novel in one sitting, I can say without a doubt that anyone who enjoyed the first installment will devour this one. I recommend this series to anyone who enjoys paranormal YA with a twist.
