Dark Eyes #2
Release Date: March 21st, 2013
Number of Pages: 352
A vigilante fights for justice at any cost. Wallis Stoneman isn’t like other teenage girls. She’s beautiful, fearless, and deadly.
Wally lives alone in her Brooklyn loft. She’d be a regular teenager, except that she’s the daughter of a Russian assassin. Crime is in Wally’s blood, but she uses her legacy for good: she solves missing persons cases for the Ursula Society, an under-the-radar organization that uses oft-illegal tactics to find people the police have given up on.
The person Wally most wants to find? Tiger, her own fugitive brother. But the closer Wally gets to finding Tiger, the more dangerous her search becomes. And Klesko, Wally and Tiger’s sadistic father, is again at large. With two highly-skilled con men against them, Wally and Tiger band together to destroy a conspiracy in which they—and their hearts—are mere pawns.
I fell in love with the addicting writing of William Richter in Dark Eyes. I was more than excited to read the sequel, and I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next to Wally and, of course, Tiger. We are brought back into the action packed world we first go into in Dark Eyes. I’m happy to say, this sequel was far from disappointed for me. In Tiger, Wally is getting her life together after the loss of her mother, and the news of her brother’s existence. Yet, life can’t be easy with a brother on the run, and a powerful and dangerous father with enemies just as powerful and dangerous.
We follow once again Wally as she finds herself caught in a dangerous situation. If one thing is for sure, it is that Wally is stubborn. Not only that, but her heart is in the right place. She can’t help wanting to find her long lost brother, and she can’t help wanting to help Kyle. She can’t also help getting herself in trouble, but our Wally can certainly take care of herself. Then, there’s Tiger. I was happy to once again have an insight on what is going on with his life. I found Tiger to be such an interesting character, and I almost wish we could have seen more of his life. He is caught in his father’s legacy, and he has no other choice but to live a life of crime. We are also introduced to a new character, Kyle. He comes to Wally looking for help, but his appearance brought more trouble than she could have expected.
Tiger was addicting as its predecessor. There might not have been as much action as there was in Dark Eyes, but it didn’t make this book boring. Instead, we get a better insight on Wally’s life and thoughts, letting us get to know her better. Fans of Dark Eyes will enjoy Wally’s new adventures. The ending leaves us thinking there will be another book coming, which I do hope is true. I have loved both novels by William Richter, and I cannot wait to read more from him.
