"I feel like I've been split open and stuffed with sunshine."
Can I just give this book a MILLION stars? Because it deserves them! I'm completely and utterly in LOVE with this book, this whole series, the characters and just EVERYTHING! ♥
I feel like I don't even have the right words to describe the current state of my emotions but I need to try! I HAVE TO WRITE DOWN HOW PERFECT THIS BOOK WAS! I finished the whole series in a week and I feel so attached to all those beautiful characters and their stories and I already miss them.
But how about we start with AARON WARNER!
It's official now. He is definitely one of my alltime favorite characters - such a complex and confusing character but with lots of emotions and a sad, cruel background and I just love him lots! I fangirled whenever he appeared in the book and all his scenes were beyond perfection! He made me laugh and cry and being confused and understanding - IT WAS A ROLLERCOASTER WITH HIM! The whole book was a freaking rollercoaster of emotions!
I was so happy to finally find out about his mother and the story behind her and his ring ... but damn it was so sad and I was emotional, really emotional! I felt so sorry for him after she died and I just wanted to hug him very tight!
I wasn't really sure about the brother-thing in my previous review but now? I love the idea of Adam, James AND Warner being brothers! I was surprised how happy Warner was when he found out and to be honest I'm glad everything turned out well! And let's not forget WARNER AND JAMES!
I LOOOOVED their scene where James asks him a lot of questions and ugh it was too cute and I was so happy! I'm just a little sad they didn't tell James ... I wanted more interaction between the 2 of them.
JULIETTE AND WARNER WERE BY THE WAY ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS OF THIS BOOK! I was sooooooo happy when she finally admitted that she LOVES and WANTS him! And damn ... let's be honest, their sex scenes were sexy and hot as hell! I loved how intimate and how happy they were - I FEEL LIKE MY HEART IS GOING TO EXPLODE! I HAVE SO MANY WARNETTE FEELINGS RIGHT NOW! ♥
"I am no longer afraid of fear, and I will not let it rule me. Fear will learn to fear me."
Juliette was really BADASS! She was so cool and tough & I really liked her - she finally accepted who she is and what she's capable of and it was so good to see her being confident and sure about everything. The scenes with Castle, Kenji and the rest of their group were all superb! I'm glad they finally became friends and ESPECIALLY Juliette's scenes with Kenji were AMAZING! I think it isn't a secret that he's also one of my favorite characters and well, I didn't think I could love him more! His relationship with Juliette and James are one of my FAVORITES! Gosh, he loves that kid and J. A LOT and it makes me so emotional! Their scene on the roofs, their talks and their jokes and that Juliette talked so openly with him ... I loved everything about it! Their friendship means so much to both of them and ugh ugh ugh FEELINGS! ♥
"Words, I think, are such unpredictable creatures. No gun, no sword, no army or king will ever be more powerful than a sentence."
Adam was a totall douchebag! I liked him in the first book but then ... I was annoyed. Very, very easily and by almost everything he did. The talks Juliette and he always had, over and over again, ... they were always the same and I didn't want to read it anymore. When she finally wants to be clear with him about everything, her feelings and their whole situation he throws her out. Seriously? I wanted to slap him so badly! I didn't understand WHY he acted like that ... he didn't even want to look for her or save her, he even said he felt better when he thought she's dead and STILL he was so upset and angry and annoying and and and.
BUT. I liked the ending ... that he finally "found peace" and accepted Juliette's decision. That he and Warner (and James) maybe become REAL brothers, without wanting to kill each other. I'm glad they want to try and get along together.
My conclusion? Well, I'm actually really sad it's over now but also incredibly happy because the ending was just beautiful! Anderson is finally dead, the soldiers (at least from sector 45) are on their side and maybe everything will be alright ... sooner or later. I will miss those amazing characters so, so much!
Oh, and a HUGE, HUGE THANK YOU to Melissa for recommending me this series! I'm in love with it and the characters - FEEL HUGGED AND KISSED! :D ♥
