OKAY WHAT JUST HAPPENED.
*tries to gather self*
Uh, first off. WARNER JUST WANTS TO BE LOVED. Is that so hard everyone? Why can’t he have the things that he loves? Why the will they / won’t they? WHY. I mean, I get it, it’s the start of the ‘second half’ of the series, so ya gotta up the ante. I will sit here until I get the next book though because Mafi BETTER NOT LET ME DOWN.
Okay, after that caps parade, this book was great! I was super nervous when I heard that she was adding on more to the original trilogy, but this one rose above. It had all of the twists and turns that make for a wondrous novel. It had everything the first group did. So many emotions were put in, and I loved feeling for all of the characters. The emotions were raw. They were powerful. And I could barely handle it half the time.
When I figured out where Mafi was taking us, I was flabbergasted. That is such an amazing twist. I have no idea where the roller coaster will take us next, but I am buckled in for the rid.
Definitely some language. There were a few love scenes. I’d call them PG-14+. Nothing too descriptive. You did truly get the love between characters though. I always applaud an author who can convey that kind of emotion without it being raunchy. Minor violence compared to the battles from the previous books.
