Entombed and doomed to digestion down the bowels of hell itself, Billy and Amber must escape or die.
The orphans, abandoned again, must set aside their differences and put into practice what Billy has taught them. Or starve.
I picked up Bowels of Hell right after The Orphanage. What a cliffhanger! I was on the edge of my seat wondering how Billy and Amber would get out of this mess. The reaction of the orphans when they see that Amber and Billy are missing was really poignant to me.
I loved getting to know more of Amber’s backstory in this one. And there’s such a cute moment between Billy and Amber when Billy is just in awe of something she has done. I like how their relationship is developing. They have such great chemistry together and yet they argue about things that girls and boys often do. I just find them endearing.
Billy, an Aboriginal Australian boy, is very non-judgmental even when he has culture shock and just can’t understand something. I was touched by how unselfish Billy is. When Billy is faced with death, all he thinks about is his clan and how they won’t be able to pass on their traditions. Billy is a joy to read about and so easy to like.
Overall, I really enjoyed learning more about the characters and seeing their relationship grow. I can’t wait to see where the story goes next!
