The conclusion of the mystery that began in What We Saw at Night could probably have been condensed into a few chapters and added on to the end of the first book, rather than being stretched out into a whole second book. Not even the change in extreme sports from Parkour to free diving made What We Lost in the Dark feel like more than an afterthought.
(This review is for the second book in the What We Saw at Night duology, so beware spoilers. If you want to check out Meghan’s review of the first book, you can do so here.)
