Book Review: Second Death by Emily Reese #50BookPledge

About the Book:

 When Meghan Monroe went missing, her twin brother Mike swore to find her. The harder he looked, the less he seemed to find until he came across a book called The Collector. If his hunch is correct, his professor, Claire Wallace, holds the key to finding his sister. But no one knows better than Claire that finding Meghan might be the least of Mike's worries.

After he ignores her warnings to go home and forget about the book, Claire must make a choice: let Mike's discoveries lead him to certain death, or face down her own demons to help him. Knowing The Collector is much more fact than fiction, Claire must decide whether to protect the secret she has kept for eighty years, or reveal her true nature to save another girl from sharing the same dark fate.

First off I do have to say that I really do like the cover for this book.  I love the colours and the warmth that they bring to the book.  Outside of the cover of the book I am please to say that the pages within are quite entertaining.  The book was not by any means perfect as there were times when I wished the writing would grab me or I would hope it would pick up a bit, but overall I do have to say it was a good read.  The characters are entertaining and I do have to say I had no clue at all by reading the synopsis of the book what Claire's dark fate actually was.  I was pleasantly surprised and found that I kept reading to find out what other sort of surprises would be within the book for me!  I do not want to give too much away so do yourself a huge favor and grab yourself a copy!
