Evie's mother sent her to the mental institution after she found her journal depicting all the terrible hallucinations. She's kept Evie and her mother apart since she was 8 years old and her mother tried to kidnap her and tried to teach her everything that she knew. Evie finds out that many of her terrible hallucinations have happened. But she keeps seeing a Red Witch who kills so many people. She starts meeting other kids and hearing their voices in her head. After the apocalypse has happened, her mother is pretty depressed because she didn't believe her own mother and had her sent away then she is attacked by some bagmen and she doesn't get better. Jack comes back for Evie and meets her mother and her mother sets it up so Evie will go with Jack. He's doing everything he can to get her to her Grandmother but the world has completely changed and there are so many terrible people left. And there aren't many women/girls around. Evie has such power but she doesn't want to become the Empress and hurt others.
Jack had a pretty rough childhood and he did alot of things to protect his own mother and the people he cares about. His past and life has prepared him for what is to come and he's smart and resourceful. Evie was beautiful and he knew there was so much more to her than how she appeared. He's seen and experienced so many terrible things but it's only made him better and prepared. He's moody and says some terrible things to Evie in their time together but I think alot of that is because he cares about her and is trying to fight it.
Definitely worth reading.
I really liked this book, and I look forward to reading the rest of the books in the series. It started out a little slow for me, but I kept reading, and was pleasantly surprised as I went.
I thought the world building was excellent throughout the book. The way Jack describes the world to Evie is chilling, and rightly so.
I do wish that we might have gotten to know some of the secondary characters better though, before they died in the Flash. I also would have been interested in learning more about the secondary characters who came after the Flash, but I guess that will happen in future books. I do think this book could have been a bit longer, and that space could have been used to give us more info on some of the secondary characters.
I also have a question that I am wondering about, and I hope it will be answered in future books; Is Jack and Brandon's father the same guy? Brandon's father it seemed was a lawyer, according to the name of his boat (Billable Hours), and according to what Evie thought, it sounded like Jack's father might have been a lawyer also.
Favorite quotes- Jackson- "Evie, if you ever get taken from me again, you better know that I'm coming for you." pg. 340. " You and me can get through anything just give me a chance." pg.340.
Evie- I liked the fact that Evie's character really felt like that of a sixteen year old girl. She was so unsure of herself in many ways, that made her seem like a real person. She had her doubts, but she also tried to be brave in a world that had gone crazy. She really was trying to grow up, but she was afraid of this crazy new world, as we would all be. I also liked that she was brave enough not to give into Jackson when he wanted to have sex with her, and wanted to take it slow with him.
Jackson- I liked that he was very brave, and could handle the new world. He would take care of her until she could handle this new world. I liked that he did try to make her see the problems of the world, even though he wanted to protect her from them at the same time.
Evie- I would have liked to have seen her be more secure about Jacksons feelings for her, and to fight harder for the man she cared about.
Jackson- I would have liked to see Jackson be more aware of Evie's feelings for him, and her concerns about that. He was so used to girls just giving him what he wanted, that I'm not sure he knew what to do with Evie.
Selena- I'm still not sure how I feel about her. She seems like she might be a bad Arcana, but I'm just not sure as we do not know enough about her story yet.
Mathew- He seems so sweet and innocent.
Finn- I can't say much about Finn yet as he came into the story late.
