Drawing is her world...but when she's pushed into the In-between and thought lost forever, it's his world too.Thoughts on Darkest Designs: It's been a while since I read book 2 in this series (you know, like, a year) but I had no problems jumping in and falling back into Storey's world. Or, not her world, as the case may be. With all the fiddling she accidentally did when she didn't understand what the stylus was capable of, her world is all weirded up. Plus, she's making crazy waves in the other worlds/dimensions.
Her... Storey Dalton wants her life back. Her home back. Her world back. The way they were before she messed with time. She does not want to become a living dead lost In-between. She thought she'd known the worst that could happen...but she wasn't even close.
Him... Eric thought he'd seen the worst that his father could do...but he hadn't...unfortunately. Heartbroken and panicked, Eric tracks Storey to the misty dead space - and follows her in. There is a way out - but not a way that anyone would willingly choose.
It... The stylus has no way to help with Storey's latest predicament. But survival is paramount. Only this time it can't do it alone. There might be help available...if they can save someone else...first.
Them... Storey wants to save her world. Eric wants to save Storey. The stylus wants them to save someone else. But can anyone save them all?
Because Storey's motto is "Go big or go home!" (I'm just kidding about that. While I'm sure Storey has some sort of internal motto, that's probably not it. Although maybe it is. One never knows with a girl who can play with reality.)
Anyway. Big things are uncovered. Things that have the potential to alter the beliefs of many, many people. Eric's father has betrayed the trust of his people (not surprising) and Storey learns more about the styluses and the divide between the Torans and the Louers.
All in all, it was a very satisfying ending to Storey's, umm... story. She helps an entire civilization look at the world differently and uncovers something that had long been forgotten. Fun with some inter-dimensional craziness thrown in. I liked it!
