The Ask and the Answer

The Ask and the Answer  - Patrick Ness 3.5/5

After reading The Knife of Never Letting Go, I knew I needed to read it's sequel, The Ask and the Answer. Picking up right where The Knife of Never Letting Go ends, the sequel is action-packed, intense and highly addictive.

Todd and Viola remain two of my favourite characters in recent years. I was once again drawn into the wonderful world Ness has created because of the voices he's given to these two characters. The world building of this series just seems to get better and better. There's layers and layers that kept being peeled away through The Ask and the Answer, and I can't wait to see where the author takes it in the final book.

Overall, a highly satisfactory sequel to The Knife of Never Letting Go. I'm desperate to finish the series soon, and have high hopes for the third and final book, Monsters of Men.
