Review: Tick, tock, tick, tock. The last few minutes of Callum Ordman’s life are fading away. In this exciting sequel to the first book January in the 365 series, written by Gabrielle Lord, Cal is still on the hunt to solve the Ordman riddle. His sister still in a coma and he is still being blamed for it. Cal struggles to keep going on. This book is guaranteed to keep you reading.
Cal is struggling in a tank of oil to keep his head above the surface. He knows he’ll either die of lack of air or die from the oil. At the last second the cover to the hole is opened. Cal climbs out to see a girl named Winter. Winter helps him and Cal goes back to his hideout in an old house. He hangs there for awhile then his friend Boges comes by. He suggests a blog for Cal for some public appeal. Cal goes with it and does get some support from people. Later Boges tells Cal that his mom moved into his uncle’s house. Days later Cal thinks his hideout has been compromised so he moves and finds a part of a sewer where he thinks no one would look. Wandering around, he finds a familiar house. He finds out it was where he was interrogated by the first gang. He runs, and after a series of hair-raising events, you won’t believe what he falls into. He barely escapes his latest predicament and is chased by the goon. He ends up in a railway station. Cal looses the goon but gets stuck on a train track, seeing a train bearing down upon him. Could he be at death’s door once again?
This sequel deserves 5 stars. It releases suspense from the first book, but adds more in the end. So when you think Cal would die from the oil, you find out he won’t. But then you know he is stuck on a train track. The pages and chapters are in the same format as the first book. I couldn’t just put this book down once I started. I recommend this to thrill lovers and people who read the 1st book. Do you think Cal can outwit his pursuers once again?
