Title: The Risen: Margaret
Author: Marie F. Crow
Release Date: May 29th 2013
The Risen: Margaret is the second book in The Risen series by author Marie F Crow. This book is a complete story unto itself. Readers of Marie F Crow’s first book, The Risen: Dawning, will find an interesting parallel as the two stories complement each other with the interaction of Margaret Erikson and Helena Hawthorn. The main character, Margaret Erikson, is a kindergarten student who experiences an unimaginable horror. This book is told from her point of view as she details the events of her day. Synopsis: “It’s just a simple shot, right?” Margaret Erikson will ask this question many times today. What is suppose to be a basic school wide vaccine will go horribly wrong. It is not a simple shot and the lives that are lost to it will not become simple monsters. “I would have really liked a good-bye hug today” ~Margaret Erikson
Margaret. Oh Margaret….I was both intrigued and sadden by this story. Intrigued because you got like a behind the scenes look into what was happening. Tying it with some scenes from the first book. Sad because…well if you read this, you’ll know what I’m referring to. I love the author’s descriptive words and her ability to pull many emotions from you but keep you captivated at the same time. I was warned going into this book, but I’m doing good and ready for more. I give this 5 stars.
