The Skulls, #9

Whizz gets his name because he is a whizz with computers. Whizz has had a rough life and Lacey seems to have had the same kind of rough life. It makes Whizz want to help her. Lacey is at a cross roads, this club took her family and now she wants one of the members.

Whizz is the eighth book in The Skulls series by Sam Crescent. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel.

The beginning of the story leaves you interested and wanting to know more. By the end of the first chapter, I could not put the book down, even if I wanted too. Ms. Crescent created a vibrant and lifelike world and managed to pull me into the story. The pace of the story was a bit slow at some points. The main characters and the secondary characters were captivating and unique. Whizz’s brokenness coupled with Lacey’s vibrancy makes this couple not only interesting but realistic.

The point of view alternated between Whizz and Lacey, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The main issue of the story is Whizz and Lacey falling in love with each other and overcoming each of their pasts. The dialogue between the characters was authentic and unique. Each character in the book and the series has an individual voice that was distinct from the other characters. The ending was a bit predictable but the author takes the reader on a journey filled with twists and turns. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
