Away by Teri Hall: Book Review

Away (The Line, #2)
* this book is a sequel to The Line
Rating: 3/5 stars
Summary (via goodreads): After crossing the Line, Rachel finds herself in a world where survival is never guaranteed - a world where bizarre creatures roam the woods and people have strange abilities. Everything has gone to ruin Away and the survivors have banded into warring clans. Rachel finds her father being held prisoner by a tribe of Others, and she and her new friends set out to rescue him. But when they cross back over the Line, Rachel and Pathik make a foolish decision, bringing them into further danger that can only be resolved with an unthinkable sacrifice.

An adventure filled with life-and-death choices, dark conspiracies, and heart-poundingly suspenseful moments, this sequel delivers.
Review: I was neither excited nor thrilled to read Away. I only read it because it happened to be at my local library and I was short on books. As with The Line, this book was very boring and short. This book was too short but if it was any longer I would have probably abandoned it so I am not really sure what to think. On the bright side, this book was not altogether disappointing. There were some parts of the book where I found myself smiling. On the other hand, there was no romance between Rachel and Pathik and I really wanted something to happen between them. It was really sad. Even though this book lacked suspense, it was well-written. I really enjoyed the writing style of this book. However, while reading this book, I felt practically no emotion (except the occasional smile). Overall, this book was well-written but it was unsuspensful and it lacked romance.
