I loved this book. Because of heartbreaking events in book 2 we basically start with a new set of characters. Namely the mercenary sisters Rain and Snow Stormcloud. I love them and their sass and kickbutt ways. It takes them a bit to warm up to Aura, but then they completely take her under their wing. And so begins the transformation of Aura Morningstar. She learns how to protect herself, becomes so much more confident, all while trying to deal with the psychological fall out from what the super creeper Darien Stone did. I loved her character before, but in this book she really comes into her own. She breaks a few noses and has some hilarious internal monologues.
Which leads into one of the best parts of the story - her baby. It has a very good message as Aura decides that its not just the child of rape, its God's child and its going to be hers. Plus you get Rain trying to help her figure out a name for the baby (it's worth reading the book just for that scene), and you also get the prickly mercenaries being the cuddliest surrogate aunts in the galaxy.
The other thing I adored about this book I can't really talk about without major spoilers, but the last ~1/4 of the book was the middle of that dark truffle I mentioned earlier. So. Much. Happiness.
Only complaints - there were plot things we started off the book with and then a new plot line about the middle that never got wrapped up. And I'm pretty sure that there's going to be more books in this particular universe, so I'm sure its just setting everything up for those, but still I really wanted to know why things were happening and what the guy wanted the AL units for!!
So, if you've read any of the Destiny trilogy, finish reading so you can experience this book, because believe me, it's worth it. I still have a certain character shaped hole in my heart though.
Content Warning: Like the other two books, there's a fair amount of language, no profanity or really "strong" words like the F-bomb though. Sex is mentioned and there are some innuendos thrown around. Aura has some flashbacks and nightmares from when she was raped, but overall I'd say this book was a little tamer on that score than the previous two.
Going into this book, I was told that AC Williams does indeed believe in happy endings (to which I responded that she better after all the stuff she put us through in Namesake!). To me this ment that one very specific thing had to happen, and it did!! Plus more!! I was so overjoyed! So if you've just finished Namesake, hold on and read New Name! There is hope and happiness that redeems what you went through!
All that being said, at the end lots of plot holes are left wide open! Which suggests there are more stories to come in this universe, of which I am very excited for!!! I've already started thinking of theories of which characters the stories will follow and what will happen. So even though this trilogy wrapped up nicely, I'm thirsting for more!!
AC Williams took some risky moves in Namesake, but flawlessly continues the story here. It's beautifully and brilliantly done! A must read if you've read any of the other Destiny books. Especially to help you to forgive AC Williams.
They were awesome, hands down! I can't recall reading such intriguing characters that are so different and clash, but also love with everything they have. Rain was simply hilarious in the things she said (even if it involves some language) and Snow was a deadly ninja-assassin who pulled my heart strings.
Beside the Stormclouds and Aura, I immensely enjoyed the variety of settings in this book. It was incredibly cool to travel to all these different planets with different cultures, foods, and weather. I felt I traveled to at least 5 different places that left me reeling in amazement as much as Aura was. Her describing the food smells may have made it all the more better.
So though this book had some heavy language and some uncomfortable spots, I have been thinking how powerful Aura's faith affected others around her. It was interesting because there is not a big Christian message, BUT it showed the power our lives can have on others when we choose to trust God and let Him use us as a light through our actions and faith. That simple, yet powerful message hit me strongly.
Overall, a very good read that makes me want to dive back into the story because I'm not ready to leave the Stormclouds or Aura Morningstar.
