Chain Letter 2: The Ancient Evil, by Christopher Pike

Cover ImageFinished 4-13-08, rating 2/5, YA, pub. 1992

This may seem like an odd book to review, but I read it on the airplane so here goes.

This book picks up a few months after Chain Letter ends.  Neil is dead and everyone believes that he was the Caretaker-the evil behind the letters they had all received.  The book begins as Fran receives a letter telling her she must drown her new puppy or she will be killed.  She ignores the letter and is beheaded.  Allison and Tony lose faith in each other and one falls prey to an evil force.

I remember reading the first book, Chain Letter when I was in eighth grade and loving it.  Christopher Pike was always a reading staple of mine, but this was not enjoyable.  The main themes of this were satanic worship and evil coming to life, which are not topics I find fun.
