So I went down a deep deep hole of reading Lindsay Cross’ books and I love it so much! So I’ve read Redemption River, Resurrection River, and Rebellious River and I loved them so much and I have high expectations for this!
Also, I love the fact we get a dossier of who is who at the start of the book, it always helps and I’ll never stop loving that!
I think it’s important to say that almost immediately this book was darker than the others and I liked the change and Lindsay Cross wrote it perfectly she manages to find a balance between the light and the dark and she did it so well! I think there is one thing I can say for definite and that is all of Lindsay’s books that I’ve read send me in a spin emotionally and she can apparently get me crying within a few chapters which not many authors can do that to me!
Jared I loved his character I felt bad for him so many times his conflicting feelings over Sparrow about Hoyt. He was such a great character and seeing him going all badass was so hot. I also loved how he had a caring side especially when Sparrow got hurt after trying to escape.
Sparrow oh I felt so bad for Sparrow after finally deciding to leave the mountains with Jared shit happens and he thinks she hurt Hoyt. She had such a shit time and was trying to survive in a world she didn’t even want to be in.
I loved the moments that Jared and Sparrow were together it was so cute and I loved that they built their relationship and they had some cute moments and he was so conflicted about liking her at one point. I loved that they essentially got their happy ending. It was interesting watching how they were being that not only was Jared a strong Alpha Male like the other females in this serious Sparrow was badass and strong and she had much more to prove.
I loved the plot I did not see where this story was going at all and my heart broke for Hoyt. One thing I didn’t see coming was Hoyt and Hayden but I think I totally ship it. So I am very excited for the next one!
