Althea if at all possible, is even more alone at the start of this book than the start of the last one. I felt so bad for her. But at least she found Wolf. I love that she has a dog companion with her, because I am such a huge dog person. And Wolf is such a great dog, I smiled every scene Wolf was in.
Lucas wasn't in this book too much and that made me sad. I knew he would be scarce the second the book started out in winter, but he does make an appearance later on. This is really Thea's story and she is such a great staring character. I got to see her really be a true survivor in Winter Omens, and I am so ready to cheer her on in the next book. Thea is pretty darn awesome.
We did get to know Pax as a new character though, and I have to say I loved that he used the seasons as nicknames. I thought that was adorable. I was all set to hate Pax just on principal but he did find a way to worm into my heart. I have no idea what I am going to do about these guys in the next book but it is something that I don't even want to think about because I like them each a lot.
Winter Omens is an awesome follow up to the first book in the Last Year series, Whispers in Autumn. This series is addictive, and I just can't get enough from this terrifying world. I just NEED to know what is going to happen. Do yourself a favor, and read this series. Please.
*Disclaimer- I got this book for free in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any compensation for my review.
I admit that this installment didn't grab me like Whispers in Autumn did. The first half is quite slow; Althea is laying low trying to come up with a plan to find Lucas. Winter Omens has an Ashes feel to it; survive in the wild and walk indefinitely hoping to find what you're looking for while avoiding the Others. I was apprehensive about a possible love triangle, but I loved meeting Pax. He is quite different from Lucas, someone whom Althea might need just as much as Lucas. Althea and Pax are faced with tough moral choices concerning their role in the world. I love it how Trisha Leigh's love for animals shines through in both books. The scenes including the skunk and deer in Whispers In Autumn, and Wolf in Winter Omens warmed my heart.
I mentioned that this one was rather slow for me, but holy smokes, when the action starts...there's one moment that I'm eagerly looking forward to, and that is when Althea, Lucas, Pax and Dash will stand together. (Imagine me flailing my arms and hyperventilating.)
I enjoyed both the first and second book in the series and there's no doubt whether or not I'll buy and read the rest. It's an exciting series with a fresh concept, well-thought out and well-written. Bring on Betrayals in Spring!
This is the second book in the `The Last Year' series, and picks up where the first book `Whispers in Autumn' left off.
Althea finds herself in Iowa in her winter family's home. Her note from Cadi explains her situation, and she quickly gets her things together and leaves her home for the wilds.
Alone and stranded, Althea isn't sure where Lucas is or what she should be doing, until a boy stumbles upon her who smells like apples and cinnamon, and shows her that he can control the wind.
Althea recognises the boy - Pax, as a dissident, son of the air elemental, and joins him as he journeys towards Portland, desperate to not be alone anymore and knowing that the dissidents are stronger together than apart.
Can Althea and Pax find Lucas though, especially as they are now in winter, a season that Lucas has never seen? Can they ever hope to find out what the `Others' need from the humans, and before the earth is destroyed? And where is Deshi, the fourth dissident, and what have the `Others' done to him?
I really enjoyed this book, it picked up right where book 1 left off and the tension continued to mount as the story progressed. Pax was a great addition to the team, and the feelings between Pax and Althea although confusing for her added that little extra something to the story (even though I hate love triangles, this didn't have that sort of feel to it at all.)
I love the intriguing world that the author has created here, and I love the storyline with the ties between the different seasons and elements.Read more ›
It felt more real in this book.
So well written and easy to follow.
I don't think you should have had to read the first book to be able to follow this one. It quite simple and has the re-cap at the start and all threw out if you forgot anything and didn't read it as a continued series like I did.( one straight after the other)
I loved this story and I know you will to.
Light romance but heaps of adventure so I recommend to all ages.
