It’s a full adrenaline ride from beginning to end with the usual kick ass heroines and sweet, dirty talking alpha heroes.
Usually I can guess how storylines play out, but I was shocked (in the best way) more than once as this story played out.
Since this world is in the world we’ve already established, I was also a little afraid this would stray too far from what we know and love. Well, it doesn’t. Not one bit. Just more proof this writer is flawless at connecting with her characters and then, connecting them with her readers like no one else I’ve ever read.
It simple, read this. You won’t regret it. - just make sure you’re prepared to pull an all nighter!
Finn carefully pushes you along bit by maddening bit with Jess and Kane, raising you to emotional heights that drive you insane with frustratation because of the ratcheting pace at which the unfolding story causes your heart to pound within your chest. Yet with every addictingly suspenseful word, with every glimpse of Jessie's spitfire sass and Kane's explosive, brooding yet tender determination, you continue to propel forward page, after page, after spine tingling page, despite said frustration.
But, oh boy, does Emila Finn reward you for that patience, because holy hell what a ride it becomes once it crests! During every one of the first thirty chapters you will ask, "what's really going on here?". With every exchange between Jess and Kane, Kane and Abel, etc., you will wonder about what you're not seeing. You will be greeted by secondary characters that make you pause and arch an eyebrow in curiosity. You may, like me, even go back and re-read pages to see if you missed something along the way. Because during the entire ride up this literary rollercoaster you are left grasping at what it all means. That is until you crest the very top of the chaos and sit breathless and crying, staring at the page at the unfolding events that seem to mean the end of it all. A tentative ledge of understanding from which you are violently dropped.
And once tipped from the crest you plummet, gasping, into the realization that you knew nothing at all! You will be left hiccuping back anguished cries at the outcome once full understanding of all that takes place is reached. You will be stunned. Holy hell what a ride!
Finn here is masterful at laying down a painstakingly intricate web of foreshadowing that creates a worried buzzing in your brain you simply cannot escape from. This book is written like a chinese puzzle box, every chapter provides a piece, but not in a straightforward order affording you an ability to see true reality until well beyond the point all is lost. It's a heartpounding, gut wrenching, must read.
Kane is ... I don't even have words for what Kane is! He's that good!
I can't even talk more about him without giving out some spoilers so just know, YOU NEED THIS BOOK IN YOUR LIFE!!!!
And Jess, oh my god she is so freakin badass! I want to hug her, be her friend and be her too! You will not regret reading this book ever! The addiction and obsession that will follow is not my fault though!
