Afflicted II  - Brandon Shire
I really don't know what to say about this series except that if you haven't read it you should. I loved everything about this book, and the previous book as well. I've never read anything by this author before, but I will definitely be putting him on my must buy list. I have two more of his books on my currently reading list that I am going to start reading next. I can't wait to start them.
