To talk about Sightlines, I have to first talk a little bit about Insight and Oversight. This all started with Insight, a story about a kid from the Black family, finding his way to NYC to look into the death of his twin brother. That’s the simplest description of a book that was so much more. What Insight does along with that main love story is start readers off on an adventure learning about The Community, what it is, what they do, who the people are that are running it, the good that they can bring gifted individuals, and also the bad. Insight is a stepping off point that leads us to Oversight.
Oversight is all about this club owner, son of a founding member of The Community, starting to realize things he’s been blind to. Again, that’s the simplest description of a book with so much more. In Oversight we learn more about The Community. More adventure, more realization of betrayal, mistrust, misuse of power, and horrible things that are happening on The Farm. What Oversight does is take the stepping off point of Insight, and move an overarching storyline forward in a huge way.
And yes, the romantic stories that are the other focus of these books are really well written, the characters are compelling and feel real, their connection perfect. I love this about these books. But the main story arch is what has pulled me along the most. I LOVE Nate and Trent, Holden and Six… and I REALLY LOVE Chase and Elijah. But I love a good suspense story that will pull me through three books, keep its momentum, hold my interest all the way through, and finish with a bang. THIS… This is what Hassell did for me with Sightlines. It finishes with a bang, answers almost all of my questions, delivers on a damn good happy ending for all the characters I love in this series, and it has me craving more.
I do have a couple minor quibbles… of course I do. But they’re so minor that they never took away from the story. Still, I would be remiss if I did not mention them. There are a couple characters I’d have liked to either see more of, or not see at all. I think these characters as written felt more filler than anything else. I understand the need for characters that don’t really play a huge part in a story, but sometimes they feel a bit too much like filler and I either wish for them to not exist, or have just one more little scene. My other little quibble is that because the story is so compelling and there are many facets that made up this series, there are still things I want to know. I want to know how things in this series will impact the Black family. I want to know what happens to some of those minor characters like the Ex Com brothers. I want to know more about a new character Shelby. I’m inquisitive and just want more. Le Sigh… such is the problem with being a Santino Hassell Fan. When I really fall for his characters, however major or minor, I fall hard and yea, I want more.
In the end, Sightlines is a fantastic ending to this trilogy. I deeply enjoyed the relationships, the connections between everyone, learning about The Community and how it worked (or didn’t). I very much enjoyed Chase and Elijah… these men are so vulnerable and beautiful, loving and special to me. I cheered and screamed, raved and shook my fists. This series was a rollercoaster that finishes with the big splash of water at the end. It was a hell of a lot of fun to read something so in-depth and full of mystery. Recommended for all fans of paranormal romance.
The events from the further books are in great action and the group around Holden, Nate and Co are planning to destroy the Community, and especially disarm Richard and to stop his crazy actions about creating an army of powerful psychics.
Without laying low the book is one event after the other and especially Chase is a hard, tough nut to break. He is guided by the believes he got infused over all the years in imprisionment and finally he sees through the layers over layers of lies his father have told him.
It is from the first to the last page a thrilling, captivating and infatuating story. Full of broken character.
I really loved how we see Chase getting though the whole mess and how he reflects more and more and how he finally develops his feelings he have for Elijah, the kind of sassy, fierce "partner in crime" and at first the "boy toy" to cover their plan up.
The whole book is filled with twists in the story and through all the mess, Elijah and Chase find a way to develop their feelings. Their bond is strong although Chase is still hesistant and full of doubts - his damaged believe in others is keeping him at first at distance, he is snarky, behave like the biggest douchebag on earth with giving his kinda trademark sarcastic remarks. But behind all this a vulnerable soul lies deep, and it is heart breaking and so bittersweet to see that Chase only want compassion, persons who see him like he really is. With Elijah he has it all, although their way to get their happy end is literally rocky and covered with debris, violence, fire and blood.
Santino Hassell is doing an amazing job in combining the thrilling events he build up in the first and second book in the series, Insight and Oversight, and end it with a literally blow. The book is full of cool, snarky, but also vulnerable and truly lovable characters. Santino Hassell shows also he is pretty well capital of writing amazing and engaging paranormal books - an earlier glimpse of it was given with Stygian - and if you love his other books, you definitely want to read these books too. :) Also grab, if you haven't already his new football themed book, Illegal Contact, if you want to see a different side again. ;) The next book in The Barons series, Down by Contact, is coming January 6th, 2018. :)
The whole series and this book in particular gets 5 out of 5 stars. Deeply satisfying with great character and an engaging, thrilling plot. Amazing vulnerable and therefore human and believable characters.
