Althea if at all possible, is even more alone at the start of this book than the start of the last one. I felt so bad for her. But at least she found Wolf. I love that she has a dog companion with her, because I am such a huge dog person. And Wolf is such a great dog, I smiled every scene Wolf was in.
Lucas wasn't in this book too much and that made me sad. I knew he would be scarce the second the book started out in winter, but he does make an appearance later on. This is really Thea's story and she is such a great staring character. I got to see her really be a true survivor in Winter Omens, and I am so ready to cheer her on in the next book. Thea is pretty darn awesome.
We did get to know Pax as a new character though, and I have to say I loved that he used the seasons as nicknames. I thought that was adorable. I was all set to hate Pax just on principal but he did find a way to worm into my heart. I have no idea what I am going to do about these guys in the next book but it is something that I don't even want to think about because I like them each a lot.
Winter Omens is an awesome follow up to the first book in the Last Year series, Whispers in Autumn. This series is addictive, and I just can't get enough from this terrifying world. I just NEED to know what is going to happen. Do yourself a favor, and read this series. Please.
*Disclaimer- I got this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review.
This is the second book in the `The Last Year' series, and picks up where the first book `Whispers in Autumn' left off.
Althea finds herself in Iowa in her winter family's home. Her note from Cadi explains her situation, and she quickly gets her things together and leaves her home for the wilds.
Alone and stranded, Althea isn't sure where Lucas is or what she should be doing, until a boy stumbles upon her who smells like apples and cinnamon, and shows her that he can control the wind.
Althea recognises the boy - Pax, as a dissident, son of the air elemental, and joins him as he journeys towards Portland, desperate to not be alone anymore and knowing that the dissidents are stronger together than apart.
Can Althea and Pax find Lucas though, especially as they are now in winter, a season that Lucas has never seen? Can they ever hope to find out what the `Others' need from the humans, and before the earth is destroyed? And where is Deshi, the fourth dissident, and what have the `Others' done to him?
I really enjoyed this book, it picked up right where book 1 left off and the tension continued to mount as the story progressed. Pax was a great addition to the team, and the feelings between Pax and Althea although confusing for her added that little extra something to the story (even though I hate love triangles, this didn't have that sort of feel to it at all.)
I love the intriguing world that the author has created here, and I love the storyline with the ties between the different seasons and elements.Read more ›
This series takes place in Lowa at first, where Althea wakes up from escaping the Others. She isn't with Lucas and she has to get out of the town before the Others locate her. Soon she meets up with Pax, and they travel across the country to get to Portland.
After escaping the Others and being separated from Lucas, Althea is by herself. She runs away from the town of Lowa, where she wakes up in and flees into the wilds. In the wilds, she meets a dog that she mistakes as a wolf at first, and a boy name Pax who she realizes is like her. Though they are weary of each other at first, they soon come to trust each other with their secrets as they travel together. At first Althea tries to convince Pax that they need to find Lucas, but soon gives up when Pax only has one thought and that is to get to Portland. As they travel they learn more of each other and grow closer. It doesn't help that Althea is being targeted every time she sleeps by the Others who have found her in the hive of their minds.
Althea is more trusting in this book then the last. Though it still took time for her to trust Pax, it was a lot faster then when she first met Lucas. Probably because she learns that there are three other season elements beside her. Finding Pax, who is autumn, makes her glad that she isn't alone any longer. Despite the fact she found a dog to keep her company, finding someone like her made her relax about not being alone anymore.Read more ›
