White Rabbit Society pt2 by Brendan Detzner

An AMAZING follow-up, White Rabbit Society pt2 by Brendan Detzner takes readers on an emotional ride, culminating in an ending that satisfies. This honestly is one of the best follow-ups I have read in a while. It continues a great, original story, and keeps its characters true to themselves. White Rabbit Society, both parts 1 and 2, make me sad that there aren’t more books in this sort of gritty magic realism genre (UNLESS there are, and if so, please point me to them ALL).

Detzner is great at using his words concisely, which only serves to maximize the impact of the situation at hand. You are never bogged down by descriptions, nor do you find yourself lost in an amorphous world. Everything is tethered to and dependent on the characters, all of whom progress in arcs that feel natural and appropriate, both for the world and the characters themselves. Time passes between the first and second book and we see Andrew, and Josh, mature into young adults wildly different from one another. Yet, they both age as you’d expect them to. Andrew, independent, strong, loyal, conscientious. Josh, power hungry, loyal to a point, wild.

With quick and steady pacing, fantastic character development, and a world-ending plot, White Rabbit Society pt2 by Brendan Detzner is a great sequel and ending to an amazing story. Definitely pick up both halves and enjoy this gem!
