I haven’t been checking my Microsoft email account due to switching to Gmail for a good few months now. Just yesterday, I decided to check it as I’ve invested in a new laptop and needed to make sure I had links to all my accounts set up properly. I found an email from Cynthia written back in June giving me a link to my latest review for Miedo 2: A Reckoning with Fear.
Miedo 2: A Reckoning With Fear concludes the Miedo story. As Miedo comes into young adulthood, he is confronted with new demons while he searches for answers to his past first through Spiritualism and then through Christianity. But, rather than finding answers, he is left with more questions as a plethora of paranormal experiences occur in his life yet again.
I love this book.
The storytelling has a freshness to it, a lack of writerly airs and pretenses, that is brilliant — perfect for a story that starts with a boy going through adolescence and becoming a young man, when everything is new and being figured out.
Especially when Kevin Cooper writes about his adolescence and young adulthood, the story shines. His description, for example, of his relationship with his first girlfriend has an authenticity that many writers yearn to achieve.
I gladly give it 5 stars. Keep writing, Kevin Cooper! — Cynthia Reyes
Thank you, Cynthia!
