This is the second story in a trilogy, following Rebecca Danced. I say it is a trilogy because the fourth book, although started, is incomplete and inactive. Personally, I believe it could have been better served by making it all one story so far, but then what would you have called it? Frankly, the main reason I say that is due to my preference for longer stories. This one inserts some ugly realities of life, as the cousin of one of the characters has been subjected to some serious abuse.
Although it is a good story, I rated it lower than the original due to the fact that it simp!y cannot stand alone. If you did not read Rebecca Danced first, you would be lost completely in this one. It is still a good read, with few errors technically, but don't make a mistake and skip the first story.
The first story of the trilogy is the stronger story because it gives you the necessary background to understand what happens in this one. Without that, it would be like trying to read Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire without first having read the preceding books. Great read, but you would be left asking "what the heck?"
The cast and crew of CHAOS are back.
Take one filthy rich guy who is probably one of the nicest guys around, his girlfriend and his totally devoted (did I mention talented?) sister. Mix well with a lot of good folks and parents who are improbable and you have the makings of another FD type of tear jerker.
Two things EzzyB and Frank have in common are successful teens who grow up with their heads screwed on straight and music. I find it interesting that Chaos plays nothing from the Boss.
Ok enough comparisons.
Anita's Rescue not only deals with her physical rescue but her emotional rescue. The physical part only took a chapter or a portion of one. The rest takes the rest of the story. Along the way another Damsel is rescued but that could become an entirely different story.
Confused? Well I started out that way. The plot is good and pie-in-the-sky believable. The situations are definitely believable. The solutions are out of this world but then throw enough money at it and you'd be surprised what happens.
It's a great journey of not only discovery but being discovered. Of sorrow and being helped by the ones you trust and love.
No explicit sex but EzzyB doesn't need that to tell a story. There IS sex but it's off the page and only briefly visited. It is NOT the reason the story is told.
All in all FD 4
Read Rebecca Danced first so you'll know the cast. Enjoy the ride.
