REVIEW: TWO FOOTSTEPS BY BELLE BROOKS (THE GAME OF LIFE #2)

“My life is in the Wolf’s hands.”

He is the Wolf. I am his Red. The game has begun and he wants me dead.
But who is the Wolf?
And why has he chosen me?

He whistles a tune that’s haunting. He glares at me through eyes that are vacant. I feel his heart beating, yet I know he has no soul. He moves like the wind…I can’t hear his footsteps. I want this to end. He’s playing with my mind. He branded me with ink. He wants to destroy me.

“I, Reid, take thee, Morgan, to be my wife. To have and to hold, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, till death do us part…”

I have a reason to keep running.
There’s no time to blink.
Don’t look back. Don’t make a sound.
I know he’s behind me.

Oh my goodness. This is the second book in the Game of Life series and we still don’t know who the Wolf is or why he kidnapped Morgan.
I’m desperate to know everything!

Here’s what we know/what happened in the first book:
The Wolf hates Morgan. We don’t know why.
He kidnapped her and wants her to play this crazy game that we know nothing about but will probably end pretty badly.
Reid, Morgan’s husband, is doing everything in his power to find his wife.
Also, no one knows who the Wolf is. Is he even a real person?! Who knows?!

There’s not much going on in this second book. It is too short for anything major to happen. But we do get to discover secrets both Morgan and Reid have been hiding.
Because of Reid’s secret, police/detectives consider Reid as a suspect and I have to admit I’m starting to think he’s not as innocent as he pretends to be. There’s something shady going on with him.
As for the Wolf and Morgan, he’s still playing/torturing her. It doesn’t seem like the police are even close to rescuing Morgan and the Wolf is not letting her go anytime soon.

I would have loved for this book to be a little longer and for it to give us some more clues on the Wolf’s identity. But at the same time I have to admit that I’m liking this slow build up to the conclusion. Makes everything even more exciting.

All in all, a great short thrilling read.
As always, Belle’s writing is impeccable and amazing.
Can’t wait for more!

  1. Wow that is a short read! I had to look up its page number on Amazon and it is only 92 pages. I can understand why you feel like you are left hanging a bit. Makes me wonder how many of these are planned since they are so short. It definitely sounds interesting since it is a short read.
