Review: Rating- 5
I cannot wait until this fall to have the next installment of this! Wow! This was a phenomenal novel!
I have to admit, the first half of the novel was a bit overwhelming, but I promise if you get through it you'll see what a beautiful piece of work this story is. Each chapter you're introduced to more characters which I kept thinking was too much to start with. I mean, we're introduced to Aaron, August, Phillip, Lara, Greg, Cybil, and Linda. That's a lot of characters! The only way this worked as well as it did is because each character was so unique, strong, and believable.
This story didn't fully capture my heart until chapter 10, which is when all the information about each of the characters finally begins to weave together. From there, as the chapters progress you're sitting there aching to find out what's going on. I greatly enjoyed how captivating and suspenseful this story is.
This is a hard review to write because the last half of this story has a lot of twists and turns that I can't spoil for you. I will say, I'm always skeptical about reading serials because they usually end at awful cliffhangers that have you wanting to hunt down the author and demand the next part... This story doesn't end in a cliffhanger. However, it does end with a few questions unanswered, especially that epilogue!
Overall, I enjoyed this story so much that I'm forcing my husband to read it next. I need someone to talk about how amazing everything wove together... it's really a piece of art!
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
