Review: Spectre by Phaedra Weldon

Spectre (Zoe Martinique, Book 2) Spec­tre by Phae­dra Weldon

My review

rat­ing: 3 of 5 stars
Hmm. Spec­tre feels less like a sequel to Wraith than a chap­ter two, if that makes any sense. Both books are full-sized nov­els, but they’re so close­ly relat­ed that book two would­n’t make any sense with­out hav­ing read book 1 (and the novel­la in between). Unfor­tu­nate­ly, Spec­tre ends on a cliff-hang­er. I hate that. 

At least I know (from her blog) that Wel­don is work­ing on the third book. I can only hope that it comes out soon and wraps up all the loose threads with­out intro­duc­ing new ones that aren’t left hang­ing again.

I do have to agree with anoth­er GR review­er who men­tioned that the main char­ac­ter car­ries on more like a 13-year-old kid than a 28-year-old woman. I have to agree. I under­stand that los­ing one par­ent ear­ly might, for some peo­ple, lead to a clos­er rela­tion­ship with the sur­viv­ing parent—but give me a break! Zoë appar­ent­ly needs to move across the coun­try to learn to live with­out Mom­my. Or maybe Mom­my should move?
