Recommended Read: Try Darkness, James Scott Bell

Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Just finished reading James Scott Bell's second book in the Ty Buchanan series, Try Darkness (the initial was Try Dying).

I absolutely loved the first book so entered this one with a bit of trepidation. Despite the fact that books in a series are a very common occurrence in the publishing world, it is very hard to make the consecutive books as interesting as the first. Often times the follow up books in a series lose their sizzle and spark and the repeat characters aren't strong enough to carry additional stories very well.

Not so with Try Darkness. My trepidation was dispelled soon after beginning the book. Colorful distinct characters were created in the first book, and built on in the second with an engaging story and just enough derring-do to keep you reading without it going over the top.

And the Iprod still cracks me up. Worth the read for that alone.

Great read. Definitely recommend. I'm looking forward to reading the third in the series.
