What a Sequel! (The
Sperling Chronicles: Split Images)
In Dreams Thrown Away, Dilsa
introduced us to Kali and the Sperling men, and this sequel starts us in an
unexpected place. In the middle of Colorado, a man who is beaten within a few
inches of his death is found and nursed back to health. This man does not
remember his identity or anything else about his life before Colorado. After
meeting a “random” man at a store and following his instinct, this mystery man
finds his way to New York City.
begins to see this strange, homeless looking man around her kids and
justifiably she is terrified for their safety. Her brothers in law (the
Sperling men) seem to not think that this man is not a threat and puts him on
their payroll. Kali becomes suspicious why the men seem to be so comfortable
around this stranger and the more and more she really looks at him she begins
to wonder if he could be her presumed dead husband, Ashton.
Split Images is mainly about
vengeance and revenge and it is a rather dark read and makes you wonder to what
lengths you would go to get your family back. Despite, it primarily being a
dark read as mentioned previously, overall, it is a love story. Once again,
Dilsa Saunders Bailey knocks it out of the park!
