The fabulously creepy story of The Ring takes a side step from the plot of the original Japanese film, taking the reader into life after all of that tragedy and mystery. And guess what? Sadako, the psychic killer, isn't so easily disposed of. Drafted wonderfully by the adept Meimu, Ring 2 takes the reader into the life of Mai Takano, after her beloved Professor Ryuji is killed by Sadako. Adding to the sci-fi element, both Mai and little Yoichi, son of Ryuji and Reiko, have developed psychic powers and are often haunted by the powerful Sadako. Ring 2 takes on the kind of sci-fi action and horror reminiscent of Steven Spielberg's Poltergeist.
