Malorie by Josh Malerman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
In a world so eerily similar to our own, fast-forwarded 17 years after our facemasks became a permanent fixture to our eyes rather than our breathing orifices, Malorie from the original Bird Box has teenagers of her own, raised in fear and a constant litany of "no, no, no" begins a new tale of discovery.
Or rather, rediscovery. Her parents might just be alive. Is this a blind-call to adventure?
This is undeniably a good tale of suspense. I don't think it is QUITE as suspenseful as the first, but living in terror for almost two decades can put a damper on your fight-or-flight response. Or does it? I think I most liked the creepy idea that the enemy might possibly have left. Who would know? :)
This is definitely our modern world right now. We can't see the evil, but we fully expect it to be right on the edge of our consciousness...
