It’s time for Jack to make his final choice.
This is one of those books where I am so FREAKING happy for Jack, yet at the same time, I feel so horrible for him as well. So while I was reading it, I felt kinda like a brat since I was enjoying his suffering.
As I continue reading further and further into this series, I just become more amazed at the writing ability that Ms. Knight has. She has the ability to bring her characters to life, to make you feel like you are actually PART of their story, and is able to create a whole world that she shares with us in her stories. The attention to detail that she gives everything is just amazing, I didn’t want to put the books down once I started them because the world she created was so great, I didn’t want to ever leave it.
It was great to follow along with Jack’s character in the course of these books; watching as he grows from the shy innocent boy that he was, into the man that he is now. In this book he is faced with some pretty difficult situations, and he has to figure out how to deal with them on his own. The struggles that he went through were so lifelike; it’s almost as if you know someone who has personally went through them.
As Jack is dealing with heartbreak, a blast from the past happens that causes him to re-think quite a few things. I did really like how his past came back, but at the same time, I was so disappointed at how quickly he was able to forgive and forget everything that happened. I was hoping for more of a fight and a beg for forgiveness than there was.
Overall though, this was a really great read to me personally. Even through the ups and downs emotionally that I went through while reading it, I just couldn’t get enough of
Jack and Nick’s story. I’m so glad that they both got what they deserved and I really can’t wait to start reading the next book in the series.
