“‘Your noise reveals you, Todd Hewitt.’
A voice -
In the darkness -
I blink open my eyes. Everything it shadows and blur and it feels like the world’s spinning and my blood is too hot and my brain is clogged and I can’t think and it’s dark -
I blink again.
No, wait -
just now, just now we were in the square -
Just now she was in my arms -
She was dying in my arms -”
Todd and Viola were being chased by a vicious madman. They believe they had outrun him, but they hadn’t. They killed him but it wasn’t enough, for as soon as they killed him they came across another, one that wanted to kill them. Carrying Viola into Haven Todd thinks he has found safety. But all there is in Haven is yet another madman, and this time he’s in charge. Separated the pair know nothing about each others whereabouts - or even if one another is still alive. They have to take the word of their worst enemy - Mayor Prentiss; who has declared himself President. One day when the bombs start falling things get even crazier than before. The two of them must remember that they are the choices they make.
Ok so I’m going to try and refrain from gushing nonsense in this review... if I had it my way this entire page would be full of “ghautpauoebrfals vjkla” but I can’t do that can I? I mean I have to be a little comprehensible at least!
The Ask and the Answer is the second book in the Chaos Walking series. It was published in September 2009 by Walker. My copy was purchased within a gift set of the trilogy.
