What if staying alive means saying goodbye to your family?
Kade may have prevented an attack on his Captain’s family, and worn the brunt of a brutal beating, but he’s running out of time to escape a job he’s starting to detest.
Caught in a no-win situation, he’s forced to choose between his own happiness or his sister Meg’s. No matter what he does, his decision will tear his remaining family apart.
Still homeless but accepting refuge with the Stormers, Hadley is given permission to travel into rival Stormers territory to find her missing brother.
Things go from bad to worse when Kade’s health deteriorates and she’s forced to watch him face a threat that might just kill him.
Hadley may get what she wanted, but at what cost?
This was a beautiful conclusion to an amazing series. This book was definitely worth the 9 months of waiting I had to “suffer” through before finding a friend who had a copy of the book. This book just confirmed my love for Kade and Hadley. It also confirmed my love for this series and Mrs. Fox’s writing in a whole. Seriously y’all if you have not read one of her books before what are you waiting for read one now!
I read the first two books again before I read this one so I could remember ever small detail and I am thankful that I did. I was able to reconnect with these broken but lovable characters. I was able to see even more into their past in this last book. I don’t think I can pick a favorite in the series because every book was just as good – well maybe even better – than another.
Everyone’s character growth grew so much in this book, I was happy that Carl finally get his head screwed on straight. He actually was a really fun character when I didn’t want to punch him. Kade’s character just continue to grow and we got to see deeper into this poor boy’s life. I was very happy with Hadley’s character development in this book. I loved how she finally found herself.
Kade and Hadley’s relationship bloomed so much in this book I was squealing and jumping around. They are just too cute together and I love their relationship as a whole. They were there for each other through the good and the bad. They had a deeper relationship than just physical touches and other junk that you see in most YA today. They were serious about their relationship. Yay, for real and authentic relationships!
The plot thickened and was resolved wonderfully in this novel. I had a hard time putting it down. I love how Mrs. Fox wrapped everything up in this novel. She did a wonderful job at it. I can definitely say that she is one of my all-time favorite authors.
Overall, I highly enjoyed this book. I am super sad that this wonderful series is over, but I know that I can always go back and read about these characters’ adventures again.
