Nora... oh Nora. Still one of my favorite characters in any book I've ever read, because she is so easy for me to relate to. She's not a proper lady. She swears and she's snarky. She will fight, if necessary. She's no waif, and doesn't need any help, thank you very much (except when she does). She's cold as ice sometimes, but not completely without any feeling, though she does try and make it appear so. She's just trying to survive in this crazy world, and this world has done nothing but make her life miserable. I want all the good things for Nora, because I feel like Nora and I would be best friends. Alas... the world is going to hate Nora because that's what this world does.
As I said, we see things from Diaz's POV more and I loved it. It broke my feels sometimes, yes, but it gave the story more depth. I want all the good things for Diaz too, because I can't be mad at him. I just can't. The world certainly hates him too, and I feel for him.
Just like Touch of Iron, this one grabbed me right from the first word and would not let go until I was finished. I read this book in more or less a day. I read all through work. I read through dinner. I read until my eyes hurt, because I could not end my day without knowing how this ended.
Touch of Iron resonated with me and easily became a favorite. I'm pretty sure I can safely say at this point that On the Wheel topped it. Topped it like a boss.
“I’ve killed men with this knife, Kenneth. Let’s say in self-defense, shall we? Butchered bad men, some good men, too, perhaps. Saved my life so far. But I couldn’t save my father, couldn’t save my brother. Couldn’t save **** all. But it doesn’t matter, does it? You know why? People think when you pull out a blade you’re answering a simple question. Yes or no. Mostly no. Life or death. Mostly death. Honor or no honor? Who gives a ****? The truth is, there are no simple answers in the world, boy. The two sides of a blade are an illusory answer. There are too many of them in reality. Each folded into the other. But you can make questions seem simple because you’re a kid, and you think this is a game you’re playing, and that somehow if you just grind through, acquire the right skill set, endure to the end, you’ll win. That’s fine. We all start out thinking that. But no one ever wins at life. Not me, and not you. Got it?”
