My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I need to process this… I think… I um, well… wow… I’m not sure where to even begin on this one. It was definitely a 4.5 star read for me. The author stated that she had some trouble connecting with Ara and David and I think it showed in this book. David took such a far departure from the man that we fell in love with that at times I was not sure if I was going to be able to continue the book. I did feel as some readers stated that it felt like we were being pushed to want Ara with Jason and it did not feel right the way it was being done. However, what did take place in this book and the consequences of some of those actions was outstanding. I prefer a book to make me uncomfortable and angry and upset rather than for it to stick to the cookie cutter formula of doing things. This one hurt and if you’re picking it up after reading #3… it’s going to both be better and worse than you thought… I love this series and cannot wait to see how the last two books wrap things up. We’ve been with these characters for so long and loved them for so long that it is most definitely bitter sweet knowing that the end is upon us.
