The Long Way Home
Book 2 of The Homelanders Series
By Andrew Klavan
From Edgar Award winning and best-selling author Andrew Klavan comes the second novel in the Homelanders series.
Charlie West was an ordinary high school kid who went to bed one night and woke up in the clutches of terrorists and wanted by the police for murder.
Now, with both the terrorists and the cops on his trail, Charlie makes his way home to find some answers. Holed up in an abandoned mansion, Charlie is joined by his high school buddies as he tries to find the truth about a murder he can’t remember–and recover the love he can’t forget.
My Review: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
This is the second in a series of three young adult novels called “The Homelands”. If you haven’t read the first book in the series, I recommend you read it first. The three novels make one story, and although the writer does a good job getting us up to speed, I felt I missed something by not reading the beginning of the adventure.
This novel was an adventure. It was riveting from the first page to the last. The main character, Charlie West, came alive in the pages through his struggle to do the right thing when it wasn’t always clear what that was. The only thing I didn’t like was the simplistic villians. I felt they could have been developed a little better. But overall, I loved this novel and will go back and read the first. I’m looking forward to the last novel in the series.
I recommend this book for teenagers and young adults.
