I was a bit afraid of reading this book -- I loved the first installment of the series, and there's nothing sadder than a disappointing sequel -- but it came through! This is an excellent sequel to the original "Numbers," but can also stand on its own. Like the first book, it has a great combination of action, appealing characters and believable but not mushy romance. Also -- a black protagonist! Yay! My one quibble -- Adam, your grandmother is awesome and we all know it. So stop with the misdirected adolescent rage, ok?

I really loved the whole series!! it was really exciting and interesting.. I think the first one is better but I still liked the rest. it was something really different. it was just as exciting to me as the hungergames and the barcode tattoo books

i had predicted that Adam would receive the power that Jem had. the trilogy continues and i think that the second book was better than the first. Adam and Sarah together faced many problems but i feel Adam had it worse. he had to see the numbers of his loved ones.

Really confusing, especially if you haven't read the first book. Took me a while to understand anything. Also a little scary, with a big slap in the face by reality. Nothing wrong with that, just be prepared.

made me disappointed really; not that the first book was amazing or anything, but this sequel just wasn't up to par in my opinion. personally, I really liked her original idea, that some people have "powers" and can see the death date of anyone else just by looking into their eyes, but this book just seemed like it wasn't enough. I was practically skipping through lots of pages, especially passages from Adam's perspective.

More action and more complicated plot than the first book in the series. A bit repetitive at times but the plot is solid with a few twists along the way. The few pages at the end of the book from the third book signal that the last book will be the darkest one in the trilogy.

mvkramer Sep 27, 2013

Adam has inherited his mother's ability to see "numbers" -- he sees the dates people will die when he looks into their eyes. When he and his grandmother move back to London, Adam knows immediately that something's about to go very wrong, very soon. Thousands of people have death dates within days of each other, most on the same day, New Year's Day 2027. Sarah has, as she puts it, a small problem that's becoming a big problem. She is pregnant, and her father is the cause. Also, she keeps having the same nightmare, where she's trapped in a burning house, and a man takes her baby from her into the flames. When the two meet at school, Sarah realizes Adam is that man, the one she's been dreaming about. And Adam realizes that they were meant to be together. Can they somehow stop the catastrophe that will hit London before it's too late?
