The Gift - James Patterson and Ned Rust

When Whit & Wisty were imprisoned by the wicked forces of the totalitarian regime known as the New Order, they were barely able to escape with their lives. Now part of a hidden community of teens like themselves, Whit and Wisty have established themselves as leaders of the Resistance, willing to sacrifice anything to save kids kidnapped and brutally imprisoned by the New Order.
But the One has other plans in store for them: He needs Wisty, for she is "The One Who Has the Gift." While trying to figure out what that means, Whit and Wisty's suspenseful adventures through Overworld and Shadowland lead to a jaw-dropping climax and conclusion: the highly-anticipated fulfillment of the heart-pounding opening prologue of book one... The Execution of the Allgoods. --

Here's the thing about this book, or about how I read it. It was actually a Christmas present given to my grandma, but knowing that it looked like something I would read, she allowed me to read it before she even touched it. So I read the back which turned into the first few chapters, and the first few chapters became half the book, half the book became three-quarters, three-quarters became "What it's done already?"

But here's the thing, although there are some points in the book where it's hard to tell what's going on exactly, it's a really good read. And if you haven't read the first one, you can easily dive into this one. It works as well as a stand-alone as it does in a series, which is why I'm posting this review before I post, the first books review. Again, the only problem I had with this book, is the fact that sometimes when you're reading it, it's hard to tell what's going on. You're not sure if you're in one area or if you're in the next,and you can tell if something is really happening or if it's just their imagination. It gets a little confusing, if you can't keep track. But the end of the book is sure to make you want to read the next one. I know it's made me want to read it, but unfortunately we have to wait for it. Patience is not my virtue...
