    I really loved Nancy Springer s Drawn Into Darkness, so when I finished it I immediately searched for her other books to read another one of hers She s a prolific author who writes in many different genres and her only other thriller on Audible as far as I could find is this one I liked it too, a lot, but certainly didn t love it as much as Drawn Into Darkness.I think it s mostly because the 2 stories are really similar There is a central structure that follows both and the main characters I really loved Nancy Springer s Drawn Into Darkness, so when I finished it I immediately searched for her other books to read another one of hers She s a prolific author who writes in many different genres and her only other thriller on Audible as far as I could find is this one I liked it too, a lot, but certainly didn t love it as much as Drawn Into Darkness.I think it s mostly because the 2 stories are really similar There is a central structure that follows both and the main characters all have a remarkable resemblance Both books are extremely well written and original in their core their plots and characters are greatly constructed and the action keeps the reader on the edge all through the novels, but there was a faint sense of d j vu Not really a problem I still recommend both novels, and for what I ve read so far, the author in general I plan on readingby her in the future.The narrator does a great job here I could really feel Dori through her voice and appreciate the whole story, with its twists and turns in her intonation
