A whisper came beside Tony. Jenn glanced back at the porch at her sister. The moonlight haloed May, and she looked like a midnight angel sitting in the chair beside Jenn’s. May rocked and rocked, but the chair didn’t make a sound. She was silent these days, at peace. It was what Jenn had always wanted for her.
The second book of the Supergirls series finds survivor Jenn at a remote cabin, together with two kids. An intruder threatens to destroy this idyll.
With Night Without Stars, Mav Skye presents the second instalment of the Supergirls series. It is a very unusual read. Jenn, Tina and Tony each have to face their own inner demons; May still watches over Jenn. Mav Skye once again paints a pretty clear picture of the protagonists’ minds – considering what they have gone through it may be disturbing the respective reader’s mind nonetheless. Night Without Stars is entertaining à la Tarantino with more than a shade of horror, a fast read, appealing not only to Tarantino fans.
This book is the second instalment of a quite different horror/suspense series.
