Return Fire (Moving Target #2)
In Return Fire, Cassie and Asher must regain the spear. This time, however, it's not enough just to find it: Cassie realizes that when she used the spear, she set the world down a path that could eventually lead to serious trouble. Can she find a way to stop the terrible chain of events that she set into motion?
As she tries to re-shape her own destiny, Cassie takes off on a breathless adventure across Italy, leading her to a forest outside Rome, a Caravaggio painting full of clues, and a villa by the sea. There, in the ultimate showdown, Cassie has to decide who she can truly trust. And when the chance to use the spear presents itself again, she has to figure out if she can even trust herself.
Kids will be clamoring for this sequel after finishing Moving Target, and this has even more thrills, riddles, and page-turning excitement!
There are a lot of chase scenes, and lots of suspense. There are also twists and turns, and it's hard to figure out who is on Cassie's side and who isn't. She also has trouble figuring out exactly what her relationship with Asher is-- does he stick around because he has to, or because he likes her?
The ending of this book makes it very clear that there is at least one book necessary to figure things out, and I'm sure it will be as action packed and adventurous as this one. Return Fire and the Moving Target series is a great choice for readers who like mythology, travel, and plenty of explosions!
