My rating:  ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐

(by Goodreads)

Felix and Allison return from winter break with hopes of settling into the comfortable rhythms of college life only to find Portland College hasn’t escaped the wave of senseless violence sweeping across the land, from the malls of Minnesota to a small town in northern Maine. Amidst the chaos, a political movement rises, fueled by the turmoil threatening to tear the country apart. As the public’s discontent reaches a final tipping point, a new hope emerges from an unexpected figure, a man offering the promise of peace and security—the prospect of ‘freedom from fear’. When the line that separates allies from enemies blurs and good and evil becomes a matter of perspective, Felix must make a choice. But as the gears of a 2,000-year-old prophecy grind inexorably to the future, can Felix choose his own path, or is free will as illusory as the salvation promised by a man destined to set the world aflame?

Bill shook his head and said wearily, “Allison. It was Allison, right? Shit. Well, I don’t know if there’s anything I can do to gain her trust, but you need to trust me. We need to trust each other.”

Felix nodded, weakly. Maybe he should have told him, he thought regretfully. Then again, maybe Bill shouldn’t have lied about Lofton’s monsters.

My Opinion

This book reunites the readers with Felix, Allison, their friends, and Bill. Disturbing acts of violence occur throughout the country, not sparing Portland College.

With The Felix Chronicles: Five Days in January, R. T. Lowe has once again created a thrilling combination of mystery, paranormal, and urban fantasy. It is a compelling read, drawing you close to Felix and Allison – sometimes a little too close for comfort. In his first book, R. T. Lowe created a broad variety of believable and complex main characters, still leaving enough room for the personal imagination; in this second book, you learn even more about them when they are facing new challenges. Nicely woven situations and thrilling interactions kept me glued to my E-reader. There is violence, gore, magic, a bunch of interesting characters and an intriguing story for you to enjoy.

This is for you if you like characters with a mission, thrill with great twists, urban fantasy, masterly combined plot-lines, and food for thought.

The awesome second book in The Felix Chronicles series; I am eagerly waiting for the third book!

Highly recommended!

    • It is a great NA series, Ali. It is different, in an inexplicable way; perhaps it is the closeness to Felix and Allison. If you do not mind a little gore, this is a series for you.
