How can one chance meeting set the course of your life? Hard to say really. But it does.
A young girl; confused, alone and hurting. A young boy; singled out, isolated in a hard life. One moment that changed them both and set things into motion for the rest of their lives.
What can I say about this book? Well, it has all the feels! this will literally take you through every emotion you have and put it through the wringer. I was so angry for Mae, angry at the treatment she endured, angry at the misunderstood ignorance, angry that people think they can just close their eyes and ignore things like this. Heartbroken at her loss, so much loss. Not only physical loss but that of her faith, the confusion of finding out who she is and what she truly believes to be right.
Styx ... OMG Styx! The broken boy, who had to be twice as cruel to maintain his place within the lifestyle he was born into. That boy is still locked inside this hard uncaring man that we meet. And boy do you know when he comes out! He is fierce! Fiercely loyal, Fiercely protective and passionate!
I love the twists and turns in the story and the big finale is amazing! There are enough secondary characters to inform and give plenty of scope for more books in the series without overwhelming the flow.
Looking forward to seeing what is next!
