In Everwild, we pick up the story from where it left off in the previous book, with Mary travelling around the world trapping unsuspecting ghost children and Nick doing his best to set those children free. Allie, meanwhile, has become obsessed with the idea of going home and sets off with her new friend Mike McGill to find her parents and try to let them know that she's OK.
If I'd read this book as a teenager I just know I would have loved it. The story switches around between the charcters, which gives the book a great sense of pace, and it has some great plot twists, including one about Allie that really caught me by surprise. The book manages to draw the various threads together nicely, making for a really exciting climax and a cliffhanger ending that's going to have you rushing straight back to the bookshop for volume 3. Unfortunately you'll have to be patient though, because it's not out (at least in the UK) for another month. I'll definitely be getting it though, as I can't wait to find out how the story ends.
