Secretly Sam (October Trilogy #2) by Heather Killough-Walden

It’s been a week since Logan Wright and her friends managed to defeat Samhain, the Lord of the Dead, and put an end to the death and destruction he caused in his relentless pursuit of her.

All has been quiet.

But it’s always quiet before a storm, and as the October wind picks up once more and red eyes peer from the darkness, it becomes clear that “Sam Hain” is far from finished. He’s after something precious, something that can only be found here, and he isn’t going to go away without it.

In this second installment of the pulse-pounding young adult series The October Trilogy, Logan and her companions face an enemy that has grown more powerful, more determined, and more dangerous in spades. Samhain, who has once more become Sam Hain the indomitable god-turned-vampire, has his mesmerizing sights set on Logan Wright, body and soul.

Nothing is going to sway him this time. He’s learned his lessons and adapted. Time is running out. And nothing is more deadly than a Death God on a schedule.

So I finally read Sam I Am and wasn’t surprised at all that I found another Heather Killough-Walden series to become enamored with. Then I read Secretly Sam and I’m officially hooked. Wow! Talk about a roller coaster ride. Just when you think you know where this book is going everything gets turned upside down.

This is really a hard book to review. Mainly because I really don’t want to spoil it for anyone. Logan is thrown for a loop in Secretly Sam and not in a good way. The supporting characters in the series are front and center in this book and have as much to do with the action as Sam, Donovan and Logan.

The only bad part about this book is that I have to wait an entire year to find out what happens next. Yikes! Talk about cliff hangers. The perfect part about the wait is that I know what I’ll be reading next October. The October Trilogy is nothing if not the perfect Halloween read. If this doesn’t get you in the spooky, eery, Halloween holiday spirit, nothing will. Enjoy!
