Book Review: Rothaker

Title Rothaker

Series Everett, book 2

Author Jenifer Ruff

Release Date April 1, 2015

Another school… another disappearance…

Brooke is thrilled to be a first-year medical student at Rothaker. Committed to winning a coveted scholarship for future surgeons, she has vowed not to repeat the “necessary”, but extreme acts from her years at Everett College. She is also intrigued by a classmate, the mysterious Xander Cross, a former college football player and veteran of the war in Afghanistan, hiding dark secrets of his own. Thanks to her single-minded obsession with excellence and achievement, Brooke’s plans are rolling along smoothly, until her integrity is questioned by Rachel, a rival student.

Does Brooke discover a soul-mate when Xander is forced to confront the truth of his haunting past? Or, will her determination to vanquish all obstacles, remain unscathed, and come out on top be her undoing?

This chilling mystery of psychological suspense will have readers wondering just how well they actually know their friends, neighbors, or classmates.

It's rare that a second book is better than the first, but I think that's the case here. Everett paved the foundation for a great suspenseful and thrilling series and Rothaker is continuing on the same path, but in a more pronounced way.

Brooke has a goal and she will do whatever it takes to accomplish it. Her incredible ambition has lead her to do some rather devious things, but that's okay. None of it bothers her anyway.

Without a doubt, I am looking forward to the continuation of Brooke's story. I just can't wait to see which obstacles she encounters next.


5 out of 5 stars
