I read this series in about a week. I am so glad that I started the series now (after they were all out). I don’t think I would have been able to wait for a year in between the second and third. This is truly a series in the sense that you will need to read the whole thing to get the big picture. I don’t recommend you pick up the second or third book before reading the first. You will not get the full effect. Anyways, that being said….
At first, Lyle House is not so bad. Chloe is told she is schizophrenic, but how is it her mind can create a hallucination of someone she has never met? Dealing with these issues is complicated enough but add a cute and charming Simon, his hulking and disgruntled brother Derek, obnoxious Tori, and fire obsessed Rae and suddenly Lyle house starts to seem like it hides a secret of its own. Escape maybe the only option…
Plus it turns out they were not the only group that was experimented on…I can’t wait to read the next series Darkness Rising. The Gathering is scheduled to release in April of next year.
