Sweet Escape picks up almost where Seet Oblivion left off. Not much has changed for Nariella since the fateful day when Rydan was lost to her. But when Mycah decides to try and find Rydan her heart and patience are truly tested. It is clear that she is in pain as she wallows in despair and crumbles in on herself, closing herself off to her friends and her life. Now I admit, though I am glad I got a look at her pain and a good idea of what it was like during Rydan and Mycah's absence, I do think too much time was focused on it. I kept thinking, okay, she is in pain and doesn't know if she can go on without him, I get it, now let's move on.
And that ends anything negative I have to say about this book. Once Bailey Ardisone takes us out of Nariella's internal despair we are delivered to a world where anything is possible, dreams can come true, lives are lost, and lives are gained. A place where the truth is blurred, the past is revealed and magic is real. It is in this place that the best of the story takes place.
Suddenly we find ourselves in the middle of a war. Kingdom against kingdom, elf against elf. But there is also a secret war being raged within the false King's walls. The savior has returned and battles his way to take his rightful place upon the thrown. But there are those that fight to stop him. And in what seems like a wicked twist of fate the savior becomes a pawn to the false king, a tool to win the war and rightfully take the thrown. Now the savior, a once noble elf, with the heart of an angel shows a heart of black despair.
In Sweet Escape these moments of despair, these moments when the saviors heart is blacker than black are the darkest and hardest to read. It will make you rage, make you cry, cause you to curse out a certain little elf, and possibly consider throwing your kindle across the room. I know I had to actually step away from the book because I was so pissed off. And while you rage and yell at the sky, author Bailey Ardisone is making magic happen behind the scenes. She is winding secrets and hiding truths so that they can later be revealed.
Bailey Ardisone is definitely a magician at weaving a tale. When she lays a bomb on you, you never see it coming. You never see the signs. Because she makes you believe the lies she has told. I know while I was reading I kept thinking, no. There is no way that this is happening. Any moment this is going to change, any moment someone is going to tell me April Fool's, because that's what we have come to expect. But it doesn't happen and so you believe it with your whole heart. And suddenly you don't know who is more crushed, the character in the book or you.
Sweet Escape gives us truly amazing characters that grow leaps and bounds in this book. With many of those growths shocking the hell out of you. But I think the biggest changes were with Nariella and Rydan. They both grew so much in this book and they both take control of their life, becoming fierce warriors. Each character in this book gives you something to route for and something to believe in. And Sweet Escape definitely gives us a story that you can sink your teeth into. It was an absolute delight. And if I thought for one second that I would get all my answers and my hearts desire, than I was wrong. Because the ending that Bailey Ardisone gave us only left me with the shattered pieces of my heart that I taped together with hope.
The first book was the essential "sweet" book where you learned all that you needed to about the characters personalities so that you could fall in love with who they were. I couldn't wait until the 2nd book to see them develop and conquer the evil in their lives so that they could have peace. However,Sweet Escape didn't do that.
Set in a fantasy land of Elves and monsters, Nari, Mycah and the crew experience more abuse, pain, suffering, and torment than Ray could ever DREAM of dishing out. My heart broke over and over again for these characters as the things they went through in the new land changed them forever. They're never going to be the same and things are never going to be OK. Seriously though, I wish Sweet Requiem was the final book as I would like to see these poor wretches torment end.
As the series progresses, it turns into a book more suitable for adult than teens. I did sneak a look into the 3rd book by a few chapters and the F-Bomb makes it's first printed appearance instead of being alluded to. I am assuming this is a sign that the book is getting more grown-up as the characters mature. Also, book 3 promises to be just as intense as it starts off with a heartbreaking murder.
Also, I am not a fan of Tolken or Elves or even Fantasy but I am so involved now that I have to finish the series.
I am taking a break before I really dive into Book 3 because my heart is just broken for these characters. It hurts too bad to continue right now.
Again, Bailey brings her magical touch. You can feel Nari’s pain, it’s like you are actually seeing through Nari’s eyes. This poor girl, her world has just been turned upside down, and she has to figure out things on her own. But her love for Mycah, will never fade. I LOVE Mycah, but he made me so mad, I just wanted to slap him, okay…several times I wanted to slap him. I understand, why Mycah did what he did, but STILL!!!!!! There was one part in the book, that I just did not understand, why Mycah did what he did!!! Once you read the book, you will understand what I am saying.
Even, though my heart was breaking for Nari, I couldn’t help to cheer for Rydan! And Namine too! Hehehehe! Oh, did I forget to mention…there is one scene, that you will praise Bailey for! SWOON! SWOON! SWOON!!!!!!!!
Of course, there is another cliffhanger! And it’s a big one!!!!
Bravo, Bailey for writing another fantastic book!!!
