Review: Every Second Counts by Sophie McKenzie

The heart-stopping sequel to Split Second. Nat and Charlie are on the run, and in more danger than ever . . .
Nowhere is safe for Charlie and Nat. They have each other, but Roman Riley's networks could reach them at any time. Charlie believes the only option is to go undercover in Riley's team, and sneaks away from Nat to pursue her plan alone. Nat is desperate to find Charlie, but his family are in danger and Riley is coming ever closer. Even if Nat and Charlie can find each other again, could being together be even more dangerous than being apart . . .?

My thoughts
A fast paced and exciting sequel to Split Second frighteningly realistic and insightful throughout. I must admit I suck at sequels on the whole and rarely get round to reading them but I found this series really easy to slip back into. Where it is particularly insight is where it looks at a future political system which has been radicalised by the poor economic circumstances a not too distant future Britain is facing. Definitely a series I would happily recommend


I am dying to read this one - it's getting pushed up towards the top of my pile as I type. Loved the first one too! :)

Great review!
