…………Thank you Alexandra Bracken………… .
”It rained the day they brought us to Thurmond. And it rained the day I walked out.”
Reading this series with its three main books and two novellas was a surprising journey, that like many journeys has come to an end. Not all journeys have a beautiful ending but this one did, this book was perfect. There were some bumps along the road, but there is no journey free of them. Alexandra Bracken has taken our hearts and guided them along this journey, giving us many sad, funny, romantic, tearful moments. At the end of the road there was just one thing left to do: release her hand and watch the long road ahead of Ruby, Liam, Chubs, Vida and Zu…
”I brought my window down, letting my free hand drift out to catch the wind.
And the open road rolled out in front of us.”
I don’t even know why at a certain point I was starting to think their would be a love triangle when it’s so obvious that Ruby’s heart only beats for Liam, and that Cole’s love for his brother is the most pure feeling we find in the entire book. [spoiler] When Zu actually started talking my heart just lost a couple of beats, and the scene of Cole watching his brother with proud eyes was just beautiful, perfect. That’s why I couldn’t stand the idea of Cole dying… but at least he faught till the end. They didn’t win!
“what they don’t tell you about forgiveness is this – you don’t give it for the other person’s sake, but your own.”
The love relationship between Liam and Ruby got a little tensed in this book, there were moments where I just wanted to punch Ruby in the face for the way she was treating Liam, my poor, adorable and tenderly Liam! But at the end we knew the reasons to why she was acting the way she was… pure love brings the fear of losing the people we love…
Everything was perfect… just read this series and you will love it. You can’t love Alexandra’s style, world building and plot. She is capable of making us wonder on all the bad sh… that keeps on happening in a world were we have come to consider ourselves “loving persons that respect others”… the truth is a little different, there will always be a man that want MORE power, there will always be a population knelt down in front of hunger and dispair, there will always be an idiot who can’t stand the difference that makes us precious, there will always be a bloodshed… because humans JUST aren’t capable of learning from their mistakes. BUT there will always be hope, and this is what this book is really about. Hope for the future!
“I love you. With my whole heart. My whole life, however long I’m lucky enough to get, nothing will change for me”
“I LOVE YOU”
“Yeah? he said ” The ol’ Stewart charm finally wear you down?”
I will never forget this series, I will shelter it in my heart and I will always remember the characters that have made me smile, cry, laugh and love!
Ps. Vida/Chubs awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww ❤
