Just when Cooper Reynolds and Lou Whittaker think they’ve weathered the worst of their trials, they come face to face with the most dangerous, clever villain they’ve ever experienced. One Wyatt brother was bad enough, but now that Archer has called on his brother Christopher for help keeping Lou and Cooper apart, the young couple is about to learn what real trouble looks like.
Christopher has come home determined to get Lou away from Cooper once and for all, and he isn’t afraid who he hurts or what bridges he burns to get the job done. With Cooper’s time running out and Lou struggling to control her growing powers, the last thing they need is more conflict. Too bad things are never as easy as they hope.
With a mysterious pair of FBI investigators in town and the clock ticking, Cooper and Lou need to learn to work together before they’re torn apart forever. (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)
Please note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review courtesy of YA Bound Book Tour.
In this book, I felt that the story recovered from “Winter” which I mentioned felt a little like it was a repeat of “Autumn”. Not necessarily a bad thing as the story was good, but it did get slightly repetitive. The one thing that held strong throughout the book was Lou and Cooper’s love. It was refreshing in a YA book as often the main characters start to question themselves, which can feel quite fickle to me.
The book is very much a bridge between the beginning of the series and the finale. There is a lot of set up and all of the characters are starting to come into their own power. I wouldn’t recommend folks starting this book unless you’re willing to commit to the final two at the same time!
Warning: Contains violence and sexual content.
Rating: 4 stars!
Who should read it? YA paranormal fans who are looking for something a little different, but I’d recommend starting at the beginning.
