I waited a year for this second part of the series Nenetl of the Forgotten Spirits, and it was so worth the wait. If you did not read our first review of book 1, then go screaming over here to catch up on what we thought of that (and we thought it was pretty awesome). The good part is that the awesome does not miss a beat with part 2 of the book; it just has a pacing that keeps the awesome coming without cutting back on anything.
We are still working with the day of the dead and forgotten souls. If you are unlucky you will awaken a soul that was forgotten, and have to ensure that your soul is not taken to the other side when the veil between the worlds thickens. Over time we all face the real death, those times when we have been forgotten by history, by family and by friends. There is no one to know who we were, what we did, how good or how evilly we lived our lives. When we face the third death, it is often best to simply let it be, let it go, and don’t try to bring that soul back from their third death. If there is no one to light a candle for you, sometimes that is for the best. We eventually over time will all be forgotten, even our heroes and heroines.
The problem is now that the kids in the story line have awakened a spirit who has suffered the third death, and they will need some serious horse power to undo the problems that have arisen because of that. Sometimes the third death needs to be there, but my randomly choosing someone to remember; they have awakened someone they should not have. And that is where the kids need to step back and take a look, and see if the local priest can help them out. Something tells me as the story unfolds that the priest is going to be hard pressed to keep everything in line and on track with this while keeping the kids safe.
And that is where the story leaves off, and no I do not want to wait another year to get this story moving again. It is a worthy story, but it needs to be out there, in the public, the whole thing because this is an amazing story to read. Rating this one 5 of 5 stars, it has a place in my heart because this is the beginning of something beautiful. Vera and Laura have created something wonderful here; it deserves to be out in full, in public, as a full story. Maybe we can get a kickstarter going for this title? It is worth finding, worth reading, and worth the time you will spend with it.
