I fell head over heels in love with the More series almost a year ago with More Than This and have anxiously awaited each addition to the series as they were released. You know how most series start to lose steam with each new book? Yeah, not Jay McLean’s More series. Each book just keeps getting better and better, the characters stealing more and more of my heart that I didn’t think I had left to give.
I don’t want to summarize the story and try to tell you all of the wonderful awesome things I loved about this book because 1) Like I said, I wouldn’t do it justice and 2) You need to experience this story all on it’s own– the friendship, the falling in love, the heartache, the hilarities, the passion, the EVERYTHING…God, this book is so good!!!!
I will just tell you that this is the kind of book that stays with you for days, months, seriously years later. The kind that makes you feel like you got your heart pulled out of your chest, stomped on, tore into a millions pieces, and then perfectly, intricately had it put back together again and placed right where it’s supposed to be. If you haven’t read this series yet, I’m telling you that you NEED to go right now. You can thank me later.
I see her wobble on her feet before she slowly tumbles to the ground. Her knees give out first, then the rest of her. It feels like I should’ve gotten to her earlier, but seconds of panic took place before my mind kicked into gear. And the rest is a blur.
Her friend’s standing over us while I rest her head on my lap. “Lucy,” I say. And it’s the first time I’ve said her name out loud. It’d been over three weeks since I’d learned it.
“What happened?” Logan asks her friend.
“I don’t know.” She’s as panicked as I am, if not worse.
“Is she dehydrated?” Logan picks up what looks like an uneaten sandwich. “Is this hers? Has she eaten?” I don’t know why it annoys me that Logan is asking all the right questions and all I can do is stare down at her. She’s breathing, so I guess that’s something.
He drops down on his knees on the other side of her and pours water from his bottle into his hand, and then he runs it across her forehead and into her hairline.
“Is she alright, mate?” Jake asks. He’s new and has a weird accent but Logan seems to think he’s cool so we keep him around.
Logan does the water thing again, and this time her eyes slowly flutter open.
And I release the breath I was holding.
“It’s okay,” Logan says to her, “you just passed out.”
He’s in her face now, and I want to punch him for being the first thing she sees when she comes to. I was here first; I was the one watching her when she fell. It should have been me.
We live in a world of darkness and shadows,
where monsters hide and aim to ruin.
And they did.
They ruined us and turned our dreams into nightmares.
But now we’re back.
And we’re fighting.
Not just for us, or for each other, but for our light.
