Series: Birthday Trilogy, Book 2
*Book was provided by author for honest review*
Cameron Martin has a huge problem: he’s aging a whole year of his life with each passing day… again. And this time... he's going backward! When Cameron proposes to his beloved witch of a girlfriend Liesel, he thinks life can’t get any better. But when he reluctantly breaks off the engagement just days before the wedding, Liesel angrily unleashes another curse on the unlucky guy, this time making him age backward, from eighteen, all the way to zero. Making matters worse, Liesel mysteriously disappears, leaving Cameron with no options, except watching himself rapidly shrink into a helpless child. Will Liesel be able to save his life again? Or will Cameron ultimately fall prey to his girlfriend's wicked spell?
What I thoughtThis was a little hard to rate. I liked the first book but I wasn't so sure about this one when I realized everything was going in the opposite direction as last time. As in, Cameron is now aging backwards. I'm glad it is a trilogy and has a plan for the series. When I wasn't feeling to great about where the story was going, it actually made me feel better knowing that the series had a direction and in the next book, we should see something pretty great stuff.
Things seemed a little harder as Cameron aged backwards. Getting shorter, finding clothes that might fit his new, smaller body all while trying to find his missing girlfriend. It was obvious something was up but I wasn't sure how it all fit into the story.
Mostly, I think it was the ending that left me feeling a little weird. In the previous book, we didn't get a cliffhanger, but in this one, we get two very big cliffhangers. Maybe it was the glimpse of the impending doom and not having the next book to read and see what happens or just the massive scale that things have been taken to. But, I do look forward to finishing the trilogy.
