The Book Junkie Reads . . . Review of . . . SECOND STRING SAVIOR (False Icons, #1) . . . Now color me happy when I heard the opening of this one. I was tickled that one so young was out on the hunt for someone so bad. Color me surprised when the truth of what she was doing was revealed. Call me surprised by Phil, Gary, and some of the other wonderful characters that colored the entire read. This was entertaining from the beginning all the way to the end. This was found to be fun for the younger ones that listened with me. I have a habit listening out loud to my audio books. This was the audio that I was listening to on a long journey. The younger ones in the car were just as entertained as I was. They would even ask for section to be repeated when we would return to the car from a break in the drive. No one wanted to miss what was going to happen next. 

I found the narrator voice at double speed was just a good fit for the story. The narration was light airy in places and fun, spirited in others. This allowed for the flow of the story and the various pitches of the characters to have their own impact on the story. 

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Andrea Emmes. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.


Jessie Flores is having the ultimate bad hair day.

Imagine going to bed with mousy brown locks and waking up with a headful of supernova scarlet. It's a hot new look for me - literally, because it bursts into flames whenever I'm threatened.

My magical makeover is all Gary's fault. I knew there was something off from the moment he transferred to my school. Go figure. He's a wizard with a trust fund and an inferiority complex. 

Now, thanks to him, I've graduated from high school bullies to supernatural terrors and that's not all. Fate has chosen me to face the legendary vampire destined to destroy the world.

If I want to survive, I'll have to dig deep and discover whether I'm truly worthy of this new power. Because if not, everything I hold dear will soon burn even hotter than my hair.

Add to Goodreads

Rick Gualtieri loves to write adventure, mayhem, and snarky dialogue. His bestselling Tome of Bill series combines all of this into a world of supernatural danger with hard-hitting action and plenty of sharp-tongued geeky humor. Rick lives alone in a dark, evil place called New Jersey with only his wife, three kids, and countless pets to both keep him company and constantly plot against him. When he’s not busy monkey-clicking out words, he can typically be found either playing Dungeons & Dragons, losing at video games, or jealously guarding his collection of vintage Transformers from all who would seek to defile them. Defilers Beware!

E. Carr likes to split her time between the alien (well resident alien) she married, her two adorable offspring and the vast army of characters who constantly argue in her brain. She uses her past life as a video game reviewer to remind herself just how awesome it is to be writing novels now. Rachel writes because she knows so many people and places that never quite made it into this version of the universe. It’s her duty to let them out. Writing also gives her mind a certain peace and calm rarely felt in this multi-tasking, wired world.
