What's there to say? I was PERFECTION. The growth that Charlie goes through in this book makes me root for her even harder. She has gained awareness, and that makes her much more powerful. The story just keeps getting more intricate. We have all these political plots going on, and most probably a revolution on the rising, and I'm here for it. I have so many questions and theories. It is a story that will, most definitely, keep you thinking about it for days. I know I definitely will, until I can get my hands on the last part (which I hope is long and emotional).
THERE'S NOT ENOUGH NOAH FOSTER IN THE WORLD AND THAT'S THE REAL TRAVESTY. And that's all I'm gonna say about that.
"My hand reaches for the mascara wand again. I unscrew the cap, lean forward, and reapply the dark ink. When I sit back and look at the girl in the mirror again, she’s different than she was at the beginning of the night. Her eyeliner swoops outward like a raven’s wings, flying strong and certain through the sky. She is not anyone’s pawn. She is not a victim. And she’s not afraid of waking up anymore."
I feel like Charlie is really coming into to her own. She's growing as a character. I love that she and Noah grow closer in this volume. I love that we get to see a different side of Noah. We didn't get any new answers to anything, though, and I still have so many questions. I don't know how everything will be wrapped up in A Sacrifice in the Smoke.
PS: Why did that ending give me QAF season 5 vibes?
Every installment of this story completely blows me away. Kelsey and Jessi can do no wrong, as far as I'm concerned. The tension in this volume is AMAZING! Like.. from the emotional conflicts to the sexual tension to the out-of-their-control events that impact the characters.. I just.. It was a whirlwind. I am so very, very invested in this story. My only complaint is knowing that eventually, this wild ride will end.
