Mr. Winfield brought the Isle of Man to life in vivid color and made you feel like you were part of the games. Everything is so detailed, fresh and clean that you can’t help but lose yourself in his writing and descriptions. ~ Kitty, Guilty Pleasures
After learning the horrific truth behind the Park Service and overthrowing its leader, fifteen-year-old Aubrey Van Houten sets out with is best friend Jimmy and his girlfriend Hannah on a quest to take control of the drones and free his people from Holecene II.
Book Two of The Park Service Trilogy did not disappoint me in the least. I was looking forward to seeing how Aubrey, Hannah and Jimmy would accomplish their goal of freeing the people from Holecene II and explaining to them that the world was not as they were told. What I didn’t figure on was what they were going to need to do to move forward.
The journey to bring Aubrey’s people up was going to be a long and tedious one. A lot of questions would need to be asked and answered and trust, above all, was needed between the survivors after the flood. Book 2 brings us on a journey across the sea to find the secret of controlling the drones and stopping them from killing humans.
Aubrey places his trust in Hannah and Professor Benjamin Beckenbauer to bring him and Jimmy safely to The Isle of Man and to help him find “key”. But what he finds when he gets there is nothing as he would have imagined. Again, he has to question himself and those around him as to how far he will go to free his people. Between the “hunt” and the “games”, Aubrey finds himself in some very difficult situations and having to make decisions that will bring him either life or death. His feelings for Jimmy truly come through and he risks his life just to save him when he finds out what the winner of the “games” is expected to do.
So, you ask, what is it that draws me to this series and loving it the way that I do? The questions, the suspense, the superior writing of the scenes. I love knowing that Mr. Winfield traveled across the ocean to visit the places he was going to write about. In doing that, he brought the Isle of Man to life in vivid color and made you feel like you were part of the games. Everything is so detailed, fresh and clean that you can’t help but lose yourself in his writing and descriptions. Am I waiting for the final book in this trilogy? Most definitely! It should be very interesting to see what happens when they return home and what surprises Hannah and the Professor have in store for them. I am still undecided if Hannah is friend or foe and am looking forward to her showing her true colors in the final installment of The Park Service Trilogy.
