June 2012 Read of the Month Review

I just finished my June 2012 Read of the Month, Num8ers by Rachel Ward.  I thought the book was an average.  I really enjoyed the two main characters, Jem and Spider.  My main letdown was with the plot.  I thought the novel was going to be about Jem and Spider working to prevent and/or solve a terrorist attack on the London Eye.  It turns out, most of the novel was about the two characters running from the London authorities.

Jem's ability to see everyone's "number" or date of death was very interesting to me; I just thought it would play a larger "part" within the novel.  The end of the book had a pretty good "twist" that I will not spoil.  There also appears to be two more books in the series.  I will normally read other titles in a series if I "love" the first book.  I do not find that to be the case with this series, so I am going to stop here.  I really do not care to see how things progress.  Has anyone else read this book or series?  Am I missing anything by not reading The Chaos or Infinity? 

Now I am off to find my July Read of the Month and hopefully purchase a new computer.  I hope everyone is having a great summer!
