The truth shall set you free.
My name is Calla Price and I’m drowning.
My new world is a dark, dark ocean and I’m being pulled under by secrets.
Can I trust anyone? I don’t know anymore.
The lies are spirals. They twist and turn, binding me with their thorns and serpentine tongues. And just when I think I have it figured out, everything is pulled out from under me.
I’m entangled in the darkness.
But the truth will set me free.
It’s just ahead of me, so close I can touch it. But even though it shines and glimmers, it has glistening fangs and I know it will shred me.
Are you scared?
Courtney Cole is seriously messing with me. And while I did predict much more in this than I did the first, I am still dying with anticipation with what exactly will be and will happen in book three.
Once again this was a crazy messed up ride and I loved every single minute of it, even the predictable parts and even the parts the contradicted each other, however frustrating it was at times.
I don't know how she does it, but she manages to suck me right into the story and I have to read it. I. Have. To.
In one sitting no less. Goodbye all those others things I needed to get done today.
None of it matters but this story and finally, finally learning the truth. Learning all the secrets and lies and horribleness.
And I did learn them. Most of them. Okay, not even close to all of them.
And now I want more. I want ALL of them. And I might go crazy because that ending about killed me. I won't accept anything less than a happy ending and now I fear I won't get it. Not at all. And I just might hate Cole for that. Just a little. And I might love her too, just a little.
So why the only 3.5 star rating? Because as much as I loved this, some of it was predictable and not a lot actually happened. Sure a lot was revealed but action wise, not so much. The hot and coldness of Calla towards Dare bothered me, a lot, and I am hoping everything with them will finally come to light in the last book, at least it better Ms. Cole, it better.
