The Time Will Come is a weekly meme hosted by Jodie at Books For Company, where we can spotlight those books that we've had sitting on our shelves for too long. Books that we really want to read but never seem to get around to.
Book Two block strikes again! I always start reading a new series, love it, but then start another new series and never get around to finishing a series. I really liked Numbers by Rachel Ward (read my review of it here) when I read it back in August, about a girl who can predict the date people will die by looking them in the eye, and meant to read the sequel as soon as possible... but of course never got around to it. I do still really want to read the next book, which is set years after the events of book 1, to see how the story develops and grows, and hopefully I will... one day! I have too many books!
Numbers 2: The Chaos by Rachel Ward.
Adam sees 'numbers' - when he looks in peoples' eyes he can see their death-dates, just like his mum Jem used to. Adam has trouble dealing with his awful gift, and when he realises that everyone around him has the same series of numbers, he becomes deeply afraid of what might happen in 2025.
Desperate to find out what could be about to go wrong, Adam spends hours researching possibilities - war, nuclear accidents, killer viruses. He knows something big is coming, but what? And is there anything he can possibly do about it?
