super loved the book. first one was much better (like most are) but the second kept with the plot and didn't take too much time recapping in the intro. it's very action packed, and i'm happy that Ariana's consistently written as a strong female main character, who isn't a super whiny teenager like many female leads are. She's very smart and has a wonderful vocabulary (minus a couple editing/spelling errors). She does her best to help everyone, and for a 17 year old she's very motherly and nurturing to her siblings. The love triangle between Zane, Cal, and Ariana is still interesting, though a little over-done, though I know this is likely for the younger audience and not someone in their mid-20's reading a YA novel. My only small complaint is that every other page is some new huge plot twist and it even got me tired reading all of it happening so fast (but yet was never boring, just a lot to take in). Also the romantic dialogue of "i love you" "no i love you more" " no *i* love YOU more" could have been cut out a bit... otherwise my attention is still peaked and I'm starting the third book!
possible spoiler review:
as mentioned above, i know the excessive love triangle is mostly for the younger audience, it got to the point where i'd skip whole sections. there'd be pages of them talking about how much they love each other. Cal needed to be reassured of Ariana's love every 12 minutes, and though he was my favorite choice for her, if my boyfriend was that clingy and needy I'd be concerned. Same with Zane. With the previews of him in Ariana's dreams and visions he seemed mysterious and loving, but oh my god he's just a whiny, clingy baby, and honestly creepily obsessed with her. Again if he were a real person, I'd run far away from him. But I was torn because half the time he was a normal guy who genuinely cared for her and is very level headed, but he's so clingy and it was exhausting to read. He quickly became my least favorite choice for Ariana. I think the author added his narration way too soon.
One thing I liked throughout this series, is how Ari stays true to her character. She has a strong will and I love that she knows what she wants and sticks to it.
I'm team Cal, all the way. I prefer brunette's, but Cal is one of the rare blonde's that I've made an exception for. Cal is charming and so full of life. He's also funny and kind of a bad boy, so you can't help but fall for him.
So when I 1st started this novel, I was on pins and needles. Then I was taken aback that the government tried to turn Cal against Ari. It reminded me of Mocking Jay, but it was refreshing the way the situation played out.
Part 2 with Zane was both good and frustrating at the same time. I liked the sequence of events and the conflict that happened in Part 2. I was appalled Zane ran and told about Ari's pregnancy. Regardless if he only thought that the government was behind it. He definitely should have talked with Ari 1st. It would have saved a lot of heartache. I also was frustrated with Zane's inner turmoil. Maybe I'm just bias when it comes to men, but I wanted Zane to grow a pair. Being in his head was depressing. And if I'd had a gun, I would have blown my head off.
I get it, I really do. But I don't have a lot of tolerance for guys acting like girls. It was very unfair what happened to him and Ari. But sometimes you have to accept things and try to move on. Ari told him so many times that she loved Cal and that's who she wanted. In one scene I remember saying, "Damn!" out loud. Ari was blatantly honest with him. But Zane was still hoping for a miracle. I would have preferred if Zane had not pined over Ari so much and attempted to move on. However, being in Zane's head did allow me to get to know him better. I actually think he is a good guy. He makes some bad calls, but had good intention, and his heart was in the right place.
Author Siobhan is the queen of cliff hangers. I have all the patience of 5 seconds, so I only like a cliff hanger if the next book is available. Praise Sonar the next installment was ready because I think
I would have lost it.
The ending of this novel was action packed. It left me dying to know how it was going to end. Love triangles are my favorite kind of romance, if they are done well. This triangle is by far one of my favorites. I can't wait to read the final installment.
