Review: Silenced 2: The Overtaking by Raebeth McGee-Buda

Silenced 2: The Overtaking (Book 2)
In life when one thing goes wrong, it can feel like everything goes wrong. Secrets come to the surface while friendships twist out of control, romantic relationships end, and even a dear loved one can die!
In Silenced: The Overtaking Amber’s life turns to chaos when she finds out Sarah, her childhood friend dies suddenly, her stepfather reveals another devastating family secret, and her boyfriend begins pushing her away.
After all the truth comes out, Amber turns to her darkness for comfort when her worst fear becomes reality. Her secret with cutting is discovered when she loses control and ends up in the hospital. Amber’s long journey to recovery begins with a battle. While she’s fighting her way to freedom, she discovers the one love she’s been missing her entire life.
Will Amber overtake her darkness of cutting or will the darkness overtake her?

You pick up exactly where book one left off. You have Amber who has found out her best friend has died, and she is taking it really hard that she is cutting herself.

Now she stopped when she started dating Landon, but as soon as her world tipped over because of Sarah it started back up again. You follow Amber through her journey of trying to stop hurting herself and others. She becomes closer to God which I think is just amazing. Amber also finds out who her real father is, and she learns why her mom hid it from her. But will this help Amber or cause her to cut herself even more?

Now there is a lot of talk about God in this book, but please do not let this stop you from reading this story. I gave this book 4 stars but it is more like 4.5, only reason being it was hard for me to connect myself with Amber this time around. I felt she became more outspoken quicker than she did in book one. Do not get me wrong I think her standing up, speaking her mind is great but it was like it happened so quickly in the story rather than build up. And the way her and Landon fought it just didn't seem real to me as far as the way arguments between couples go. But that is just me.

Amber gets a lot of support later on, and actually makes a new friend who helps guide her through what she is going through. We learn more as to why Amber feels she needs to cut and harm herself. The title of the book says it all. You can overcome anything through family, friends, support, and most of all Jesus.The ending was a great little twist for me and though it was perfect for this story. This author did a terrific job.
