Flicker & Burn (Cold Fury #2)
Author: T.M. Goeglein
Genre: YA Contemporary/Mystery
Release Date: August 20, 2013

Sara Jane Rispoli is still searching for her missing family, but instead of fighting off a turncoat uncle and crooked cops, this time she finds herself on the run from creepy beings with red, pulsing eyes and pale white skin chasing her through the streets in ice cream trucks; they can only be described as Ice Cream Creatures. They're terrifying and hell bent on killing her, but they're also a link to her family, a clue to where they might be and who has them. While she battles these new pursuers, she's also discovering more about her own cold fury and more about the Chicago Outfit, how the past misdeeds--old murders and vendettas--might just be connected to her present and the disappearance of her family. But connecting the dots is tough and time-consuming and may finally be the undoing of her relationship with the handsome Max--who's now her boyfriend. But for his own safety, Sara Jane may have to end this relationship before it even really starts. Her pursuers who've shown her her mother's amputated finger and the head of the Chicago Outfit who's just whistled her in for a sit-down make a romance unthinkable. The only thing that matters is finding her family and keeping everyone she loves alive.

Teardrop (Ice Cream Creature) – Impossible…who knows if it’s a girl or guy?
Flicker & Burn is the second book in a young adult contemporary mystery series that continues with our heroine, Sara Jane Rispoli, still searching for her family and still on the run. This time she's up against what she calls Ice Cream Creatures - pale white creatures with red eyes that seem determined to kill her at all costs. On top of dealing with these creatures, Sara Jane is still coming to terms with the information she has learned about her cold fury and the Chicago Outfit - and how it may be connected to her family's past and present. Sara Jane's fresh relationship with Max is being strained by her pursuit of the truth and her concern for his safety may be the end of their relationship. Will Sara Jane be able to figure out her family's connection to the Chicago Outfit before it's too late? And just what are the Ice Cream Creatures and what do they want from her?

This was a thrilling second novel in an exciting YA series. The plot continues to be intriguing with tons of twists and turns that had me eagerly reading to see what was going to happen next. The characters continue to be well rounded and I liked seeing Sara Jane's character continue to mature and grow throughout the book. The plot is a fascinating one that keeps you guessing and on the edge of your seat - it's different from most other books in the genre right now. The writing shows the author evident talent with a fast pace, vivid detail and descriptions, and an exciting story line. Highly recommended for fans of YA contemporary mysteries and suspense fiction.
