I am consistently impressed by the way Jay Crownover approaches potentially sensitive subjects. The way she juxtaposed the corrupt officials against the inherent goodness of the people who genuinely love The Point – even when they were not wholly lawful – was compelling. It was also handled in a way that made it feel like even in the darkest, most hopeless situations have a solution.
Snowden Stark and Noe (pronounced ‘NO’) Lee were fascinating together. I loved the way they pushed each other, both intellectually – there is a reason they say the brain is the most important sex organ – and emotionally. The tragic circumstances they’d both experienced in relation to their families may have been vastly different, but they both dealt with it similarly. Watching them begin to peel back the layers of the things they’d long buried within themselves, in order to develop something more significant than either of them had ever hoped for, was engrossing.
The plot of Dignity was intense and enthralling. I appreciate how Jay Crownover relates her characters to one another and uses their past pains and traumas to their current struggles. It’s also amazing how she allows those experiences to inform how they relate to the people they encounter and help them to recover from their own pain. Watching Noe and Stark battle against the worst humanity has to offer while also battling their own demons made me happy, for them and for the people who were unable to fight for themselves.
Jay Crownover has been a go-to author for me for a long time. Each of her characters feels fresh, while still having an inherent strength that feels uniquely Jay. She can take the darkest corners of the earth, the most unlikable characters and turn them into places and people that speak to your heart in soul in a way you never see coming. Dignity was utterly in keeping with her style; it’s all hard edges and interesting dynamics. I can not wait to see what Ms. Crownover has in store for us in the next book in this series, Respect, due out summer 2018.
This one has been a long time coming, once again we are back in the Point and it's as always a shyt show. Stark the massive inked computer genius has been in the series since the beginning and of course we really saw him in Honor when the Devil went looking for his mate. Stark is now even more firmly entrenched in the family's games and on the Devil's payroll. Noe Lee is a new one, we did see her before in Honor because she has the same campaign going as does Honor except she goes about it a little differently. She's a hacker who aides women who want to leave the Point.
I absolutely loved this one because even though the Point has no real geographic location it can be where ever the 'bad' side of town is in any state, we know very little about the whole town. This story really fleshed out the town and made us more aware of how large an infrastructure the underground criminal class truly is. For me Lee was my favorite character, she was well written and awesomely fleshed out as a woman and a character. Even though she was scared & she had plenty of reason to be, she still fought anyway she could to aide those in worse situations than her, even if she did it from the shadows. I loved that Stark shared a similar mission and that he was a hero on the low.
I really enjoyed that they lived in Race's fortress, and that we got to see so much of the original group in this one, even though it was really about Lee and Stark's journey and their fight, both individual and together. I loved that all this time later Titus is still fighting to clean up the city. The romance in the story wasn't as front and center for me, even though it was good. I liked that they didn't immediately fall for each other, they danced around it and fell in like with each other's brains and genius abilities first. I also liked that even as they discovered that they were better together than apart they weren't immediately healed by being int he relationship, it's something they acknowledged would take time.
For Stark being a genius carried a heavy burden,m one that cost him so much. Reading that it makes me understand why some parents don't push their kids into the special programs because if this is how they handle it, my gad no. I wasn't expecting the ending because in the last few chapters secrets just came tumbling out and I can't wait to see the full fall out of all of that in the next book. I really enjoyed those ending scenes as well because it was beautiful to see them all together and know where they were coming from and knowing that they shouldn't have these happy moments and yet they do. It's beautiful to read and see how this found family has expanded. Noe Lee was a pretty bad ass who knew how hide from even Nasser when he was looking, and even in a full blown panic she was vicious.
One of the few things I do have to call this series out for is that this is known as an urban city, and in all their interactions there are few to little with characters that are minorities. Also you live int he underbelly of the city and beyond Nassir and Lee you have no minorities as friends?? More of than not in reality the reverse is the truth, whites are truly the minorities in the 'ghettos' and 'hoods'. I just wish we had more characters of color within the main group. Especially because Bax had been to jail, he didn't meet no friends in there the whole time?? I would really love to learn more about Benny and who he was fighting for. Even if it's just a novella.
Once again the "bad" guys take aim at the Hill and bring down terror on their own. Secrets shake out, pasts are revealed and we are pulled under by the grime, but Hope blooms here. It's messy and it's revenge at it's best.
I loved it. I highly recommend.
Happy Reading my loves,
