Hanna's on a mission to corrupt Rosewood's youth-starting with a very attractive sophomore. Aria's snooping into her boyfriend's past.Spencer's stealing...from her family.And pure little Emily's abstaining from abstinence. Tsk, tsk, tsk. These pretty little liars should be careful.Sure,the old A is dead, but there's a new A in town turning up the heat.And this time Rosewood's going to burn. ~A.
Killer is another great installment(No.6) in the Pretty Little Liars series.
It picks up exactly after Wicked left off.Aria is still trying to cope with her mother's new love interest while finding one of her own,Hanna wants to prove once and for all that she is the queen bee by choosing to date someone you never thought she'd date,Emily comes head to head with her new beloved's mother and their family's beliefs and Spencer....just does something really, really bad.
I really loved this book!I cannot believe that the series is still going strong after the 4th book which appeared to hold the conclusion to the story.But the story has not faltered one bit,I can safely say it's even better now!Shepard's writing drags you in and is so addictive that there is no way you'll put the book down before it's finished.It's taunting and tormenting,especially when you think of so many possible suspects that your brain is about to blow up!So many things are happening,situations keep changing, things that you thought were solid are starting to collapse and people you had in mind as suspects are completely innocent.You're always changing your opinion about who really did kill Ali,
never really deciding even after the book is over.
The only thing that put me off a teeny tiny bit is Hanna's sudden and no way anticipated,date.She never really expressed any romantic feeling toward him,in fact she said in previous books that she didn't like that kind of guys.I don't know, it seemed a little rushed and awkward.I secretly wished she stayed together with Lucas.Also, what's up with that?When will people stop breaking up so...easily?Come on, talk to each other, discuss and then decide.You're supposed to be with a person that you love,you at least owe him/her that.
Overall, I thought this book was fantastic and I can't wait for Heartless!
One useful tip:The book ends with a ginormous cliffhanger, the biggest in PLL history!
