Review of Necessary Evil of Nathan Miller

So I decided I’m going to start posting reviews on my website. That way, I can maybe help market for some authors out there. 

I just finished my review on Necessary Evil of Nathan Miller by Demelza Carlton. This is the sequel to the Nightmare Series (the first one was Nightmares of Caitlin Lockyer).

My review:

4 STARS!!!

After reading the first book of the series, this one helps answer some of the lingering questions. The first one had many loopholes and the reader was left filling in many of the blanks.

That being said, I have to admit, I enjoyed the first one better. As much as I do like Caitlin, I don’t connect with her like I do with Nathan. This sequel is basically the same story as the first one, but with Caitlin’s perspective. She had horrifying things happen to her, but she is definitely a survivor. But again, I just had a hard time getting attached to her.

Perhaps, I enjoyed the first one more because it was from Nathan’s perspective. Or perhaps, there was more suspense in the first one (the readers weren’t sure how the book was going to end)- in the second one, we basically know what is going to happen (the general plot of the story). However, we do find out some surprises in this one that were not revealed in the first book.

I really like Nathan- I think he is a very deep character and the author has just touched the surface of his personality. I’m hoping we see the full depth of Nathan’s character in the third book.

I’m still left with a lot of questions. I’m hoping that the author gives her readers a nice closure in the third and I believe, the final installment of the series.

This is a unique story with a bit of everything- suspense, thriller, romance, horror, and action. I am looking forward to the third book, hoping Nathan’s story has a happy ending.

As dark as the series are, the story is definitely intriguing. 

The book is available on Amazon. Start with Book one- it all comes together, trust me! 

Oh, and here’s how I visualized Nathan and Caitlin…
