My Review

My apologies for not posting the past few days, and also getting to this story. I had a wisdom tooth pulled and I was in between groggy in bed and ‘where the hell am I?’ state. My mouth is still sore, but at least the problem is gone now. Anyway…

If you haven’t already guessed, I’m a fan of this series. I’ve written reviews on both Book 1 and Book 2. The fourth book releases this month and I am a bit behind, but I’m so close now!

Afton cannot catch a break! I enjoy how these are quick reads, especially when I have to be bed ridden for a few days. I can understand at first why she was hesitant about her sister, but then I’m like ‘okay, yeah she’s gotta go.’ I’m just morbid like that, like Animus is.

And poor Twinkie!!

I won’t tell you why I say that, but damnit, I’m just as upset about it as Afton was.

It’s difficult to not review this book without giving away spoilers. But you wanna talk family drama? I think Afton has everybody beat at the current moment. Finding out she had a sister, twin sister (spoiler, sorry), and said sister hates her guts (damn!) and now poor Twinkie!

I’m anxious about the fourth book and to see what happens with Afton. So much has happened with Afton so while you could pick a series and read it, why would you want only the limited edition of Afton when you can have her awesomeness from the beginning?

  1. How did I manage to miss this review until now?

    Did you happen to catch this Instagram post of mine? Kristin James, who narrated the audiobook, made and sent me this Twinkie coaster. Notice the eyes. 😉

    I’m looking forward to your review of book four.
