So I am a bit at a loss as to what to say about this series. I may even have to even edit this review because I'm not sure how I feel. First off I am not rating or reviewing each book separately. I am doing the series as a whole.
So lets start with the basics. This book is dark. Now I love love love dark books, so when I heard that this one is super duper dark I was all in. I can honestly say books 1 2 and 3 are possibly the darkest books I have ever read in my life. Ever! If you have anything that triggers you (which I don't) this series is not for you. My thoughts during the dark portions were so confusing. I kept thinking it couldn't get darker but it did and my heart just hurt for Anna the main character. I really felt hopeless for her. I don't even know how to describe the darkness to you but if you can think of the worst possible things that a man, actually many men, could do to one girl it's in this book. There is stuff you couldn't even think up and it's in here. Through books 1,2 and 3 I kept thinking I'm not sure how I can rate this. I'm not sure I want to even finish this. Crap the author is going to be at a signing I'm going to and I have no words...what would I say to this author. I wasn't sure if I liked or hated the books. At that point I wasnt sure I could give more than a 3 star and yet I wasnt sure of that either.
So why when I felt so conflicted did I keep on reading? I kept thinking there had to be something that gives here. There had to be some sun that will show through the darkness...maybe even just a peak. I had to see how it ended.
I'm not sure where the rays of light actually began, I think it was somewhere in book 4. When you get the box set, obviously, you have all the books of the series in one and of course you can see when you are on a new chapter but I was on such a binge that I don't know where the I can deal with this and where it is going started but it was in NY. I don't want to say more but anyone who has read it will know what I'm talking about. Thank goodness for the last book it really brought everything together and tied everything up and actually softened my view of the series as a whole. Although I wanted it to not let me forget how I felt through 3 whole books, because this in not some series you willy nilly recommend to just anybody. Honestly I'm not sure if I would recommend even to dark readers because those 3 books were soooooo dark. But yet I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading it either. See this series has left me dumbfounded.
Also I would be remiss in not mentioning that this book has "other worldly" stuff in it. I'm not sure what the right term is. Paranormal? I'm sure there is a right definition. I didn't know that going in and had I, I might not have read it because that's just not normally my thing. Did it bother me? Not really. There were some interesting factors with this other world type of thing going on. But yeah, know that it is in there just in case you don't like that stuff.
Also know that even though it is dark and brutal it is really well written. I have read a ton of books some of which was crap. Whether I liked the series or didn't like the series I did realize that it was a well written series
Standalone: Obviously not. It is series and needs to be read in order
Characters: I can't even talk about them. I feel like I would give to much away. Let's just say thank goodness for Anna's friends.
Sex: There is hot sex. But there is brutal sex, forced sex and stuff you just cant even imagine
1) It has every trigger you can imagine if you can not handle DARK, you should not read it.
2) It is tragic most of the time and you will be disgusted.
3)It has a happy ending that you will love and enjoy.
So,with all the trust in the world that my friends would not steer me wrong, I dove in.
First, I am so glad that I did not have to wait for the next book, I would have died.
Second, there are so many moments that I wanted to cry, throw my kindle, and kept thinking,"I can not read anymore!" but kept reading.
Third, there were some really amazing tender moments that let me breathe.
and Fourth, the ending is perfect.
I do not want to give anything away and if you need some support while reading it... Facebook has support groups. Not kidding...
Seriously, this series is amazingly dark and unbelievable painful to read but in the end the Happy Ever After has never been more appreciated or deserved by any one character.
If you can handle the warning that this book has straight up abuse on top of abuse, this book is amazing. Marissa Honeycutt weaves a tale that can not be forgotten and it has nothing to do with the darkness. The unforgettable is all about the light of Anna that glows in the darkness that I thought would never end.
Was one of my top picks of 2015.
Strongly suggest reading it!!
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!
