: Banished (): Sophie Littlefield: Books
It is hard for me to bbanished zombie books because of what they are – lifeless creatures. This gripping novel from thriller writer Sophie Littlefield blazes a trail from small-town Baniwhed to the big city as Hailey battles an evil greater than she ever imagined, while discovering strengths she never knew she had.
Hailey avoids using her ability and tries to live as a normal teenager. There is the sopuie of one in the next book, and I hope Littlefield handles it well, because I am currently in love with this woman, and I don’t want the honeymoon to end.
Like all magic, the power had a dark side and a light side. The motivations of the main bad guy were also quite shallow.
Those are big ltitlefield now. I don’t even mind Haylie, even though she makes one idiotic decision after another. Littlefield building suspense all the while, finally culminating in some absolutely stellar scenes and a whole lotta fantastic writing.
And I like Kaz, who seems like he’d be a great character to develop. Following a violent shoot-out and car chase, Prairie escapes with Hailey and Chub and takes them to Chicago, where they join forces with another Healer and her son. Hailey is not filthy rich or unbelievably popular.
But when Prairie saves both Hailey and Chub from armed attackers who invade Gram’s littleifeld in the middle of the night, Hailey must decide where to place her trust. Hailey never knew her dead mother, and she has no idea who her father was, but at least she has her four-year-old foster brother, Chub. In this sequel to Banished, Hailey, her Aunt Prairie, and Chub, her toddler, adopted brother escaped Chicago with their lives but had to change their identities. Or they could be if they became more than a thin pencil sketch on a page.
Also the book is really short its only pages, and t I really liked this book, all though i still liked the first book in the series better. There are people who will stop at nothing to keep Hailey in Trashtown, living out a legacy of despair and suffering. I think that I didn’t like it because I really couldn’t feel the spark for anything. And the thing that bothered me, aside from all of that I mentioned up there, is that there is no visible romance to me. Hailey figures she’ll never belong—not with the popular kids at school, not with the rejects, not even with her cruel, sickly grandmother, who deals drugs out of their basement.
All you hear about is witched and their magic and history, but not the other side of magic where some can heal. However I do remember that I liked the book, so I was interesting in seeing if I’ll like the second book.
Hailey’s voice is strong and believable. Even though he had a brief part I liked littlefieod instantly just for what he did for Hailey and I would have liked to have seen him more. After Hailey has begun her life with her aunt Prairie and brother Chub, away from Gypsum, Missouri and all of the Banished, she begins to get too comfortable with her life, and soon her past begins to catch up banidhed her.

Spphie isn’t much worth living for in Gypsum, Missouri—or Trashtown, as the rich kids call the run-down neighborhood where sixteen-year-old Hailey Tarbell lives. Sometimes sequels don’t live up to the first book and that’s definitely not the case here. However, sometimes the parts from the other persons point of view POV does confuse at times as you don’t know who they are.
Sadly, I felt that this book should not banishdd been written as the quality of the writing has gone down and there was no need to rehash other disputes that I was contented to let my imagination carry me away after Banished.
I’m going to have to read everything Sophie Littlefield has ever written now.
Hailey’s life is hard. Apr 18, AJ marked it as to-read Nov 05, Emory’s Defunct Profile rated it did not like it Shelves: Hailey escapes with Kaz, as they try to find a way to stop the zombies from rising, while at the same time saving Prairie and Chub from a fate worse than death.
Unforsaken (Banished, #2) by Sophie Littlefield
A very strong one in fact. He’s totally hot and dreamy! I personally didn’t care for the zombie element that evolved nor did I appreciate some of the more gruesome moments, particularly a painful situation involving a dog. If this doesn’t bother you, then go ahead and enjoy the first part of the story. Sometimes people had good intentions about using their powers, but did something they knew was against the rules, and paid for it dearly.
Dec 30, Haley rated it liked it. I love that her characters in the Banished series aren’t static, they grow and mature as you’d expect from their experiences. Sep 13, bex4mixxed rated it it was amazing. They have new names, new schools, new jobs.
