This transmistion makes this book difficult to read - I was quite unprepared for the departure from the fun inquisitive nature of book one and two and the trauma filled voice of this novel. As earlier stated this novel is in no way bad or uninteresting, indeed it's message is both important and necessary, however I could not enjoy it. I found it too dark, too true perhaps and not in keeping with the read I personally expected.
Give it a go if you like novels that are quite dark and trauma filled but if you prefer the lighter all's well that ends well vibe of book one then this is not for you
I just wanted to write a quick note about my rating… If I was basing it completely on the thrill and my inability to put this book down it would be a solid 5-stars! I was on the edge of my seat THE WHOLE TIME and I’m so invested in these characters. BUT there were decisions made that lessened my enjoyment in terms of plot and that’s why it’s at 3.5-stars. I would still recommend it though!
Just as in the previous books, I was immediately engaged in the story. Pippa is suffering her PTSD in silence and has turned to take drugs (specifically Xanax) in order to suppress the overwhelming sensations and flashbacks that are now her constant companions. She has lost complete faith in the justice system and herself to the grey area between good and bad and doesn’t know where that leaves her. Jackson has written Pippa’s tumultuous thoughts and experience of PTSD so incredibly well it’s as if you are experiencing it alongside her—the fast-paced drumbeat of nerves, the cold sweats, the flashes of bloody hands, and the inability to breath was shockingly visceral. I was completely twisted up in anxious knots as Pippa’s story took an unprecedented and absolutely insane direction and continued steamrolling chaotically until the very bittersweet end. At one point I thought my heart would beat out of my chest because I was so anxious for Pip! 🙈
I have to admit that figuring out who DT was before Pip did was such a satisfying feeling and I was literally shouting at the pages at that point! 😂 However, that satisfying feeling didn’t last long because there were a few more turning points in the story that really had me suspending my disbelief because it is WILD, y’all. Seriously. W-I-L-D! I mean, I greatly admire Pippa’s character and wow, did I learn a lot from her situation and how she handled it (cough you know, for if ever I find myself in a similar situation one day—JOKES cough) but this was not the direction I thought her story would go and neither was I really keen on it? Without giving anything away, the situation escalates very quickly and then continues to escalate to the point that it’s no longer realistic. That said, a small part of me did understand (to a point) how it escalated the way it did especially considering how bad Pip’s PTSD is. It was heartbreaking to see her struggle to cope though.
The ending is where another star was deducted for me because I felt like by that point Pippa had really been through enough and she deserved better than what she got. It was an overall satisfying conclusion though with the stories told in the previous books tying up pretty neatly and all the questions that were asked were also answered. I’m sad to see this series end because it has been one heckuva thrilling ride but I’m so looking forward to seeing what else Jackson comes up with in the future!
That's all, hope this helped! Happy reading! 😊📚
