Hello all, it’s Dani again.
I’m having a pretty good birthday so far guys. I had breakfast with my best friend Signy Cullen, and then I went and finally bought my own copy of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Now, it’s time for me to once again share a review for a book series that I dearly love.
Last week I posted a review for Colorworld, and this week I am turning my attention to book two, Teleworld.
After a month of living a semi-normal life with her condition, Wen would rather not think about scary things like the fact that her ability became more powerful all on its own. Or that Louise is still roaming free. Or that she’s about to be married to Gabriel and she has no idea how they’ll manage being unable to touch each other. But the questions won’t leave her alone and she’s desperate for answers.
Wen believes those answers begin with Subject Number Three, the only person known to have survived touching her lethal skin. When her Uncle Robert finally locates the woman, Wen is sure that an end to her problems is within her grasp.
She’s wrong. They’ve only just begun.
Now, hope for a cure to Wen’s condition is crumbling, Kaylen is missing, and a horrifying accident with her brother leaves Wen desperate and terrified. Just when she thinks she can’t take much more, Gabriel, the one person Wen thought she could count on, suddenly becomes the one person she fears the most.
This book was an absolutely amazing read. As much as I loved Colorworld, this book was just so much better. I love the depth of the characters and their emotions. They really drive the story/plot forward, not a bunch of random action sequences or anything. Sometimes I actually find character driven stories to be so much more entertaining than plot driven tales, though both are still good.
In many ways this is a difficult book for Wendy and Gabriel. They have to deal with a lot together and apart, and it makes them grow in so many ways, making them even stronger in the end. This book is like that stage in most romantic type movies and such where the speed bumps, detours, and road blocks threaten to ruin the happiness of the couple. Plus, they still have a lot to learn about each other since they’ve only known each other for a few months.
Also, Ezra is a lot more present in Teleworld, now that we aren’t spending most of the time at the compound, and we even get some more action-y type scenes thanks to Kaylen’s telekinetic ability. Ezra and Kaylen are wonderful secondary characters and I love what they add to the story. Ezra’s love of comic book superheroes continues to be adorable and something I greatly enjoy. And Kaylen is proving just how capable she is as both a friend to Wen as well as when it comes to her own abilities.
So many secrets and revelations fill this book and it honestly leaves me wondering what could possibly happen next. Books three and four continue to amaze and it leaves me desperate for book five, but I’ll leave the discussion of Lumaworld until next week, and Shadoworld has to wait until the week after that.
Oh, and this book is also available in an Illustrated Edition and it is fabulous, because it sort of allows us to see into the Colorworld like Wen does.
All I can say is that I am so incredibly glad that I found these books at Comic-Con, and I will continue to recommend these books to absolutely everyone I know.
Where to Buy
Again, this can be picked up from Amazon or Barnes & Noble, but I highly recommend just going to the Colorworld store and buying there. Not only does this give the author a bigger profit margin, but the book will also come signed and you can even pick up some awesome metal bookmarks, paper art prints, or metal art prints, to go along with your already fantastic order.
