- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2013 January #1
Brian's staple milieuâstylish teens living soap operaâworthy livesâgets a supernatural twist in this uneven series opener. When Rory escapes a vicious killer, the FBI assures her they will catch him. In the meantime, she and her family are given new identities and sent to a secret location. They arrive in Juniper Landing, an idyllic vacation island, seemingly without incident, though Rory is troubled by nightmares of the killer murdering them on the road. Rory and her sister, Darcy, join a crew of insouciant, beautiful people who party all the time, but Rory senses something is wrong. People keep disappearing, and while she is sure the killer is responsible, everyone else seems suspiciously unconcerned. Many readers will figure out the paranormal twist long before the reveal, and while Brian builds a strong sense of menace, the abrupt ending leaves most of the interesting questions unanswered. Plot improbabilities, such as the stunning ineptitude of the FBI, and undifferentiated characters hamper what could have been a compelling mystery. Brian's fans will nevertheless find much of what they're looking for. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.
