WENT ROGUE, IN ALL THE RIGHT WAYS!
So I admit that though this series kept coming up in my suggestions, I just sort of glazed by, even when friends on Facebook suggested it. I am not sure why exactly, but I just wasn’t into it.
And then, I was.
If you haven’t read the first two, block out some time and binge them because they are wonderfully written, inventive, and though they have a romance arc, it isn’t hitting you over the head.
Then read this one.
Rogue is impressive on so many levels. How do you end a well-loved series, giving people what they want while still surprising them, keeping things moving AND heating up the romance, all while keeping it decidedly PG-13? I don’t know. Ask Karen Lynch – the chick is a literary magician!
In this final escape to a universe in which demons live in some minds, and vampires terrorize an unknowing world whilst werewolves run Maine, you find yourself really BELIEVING this could be real, this could happen, these characters could exist. You WANT them to exist. You want a Nikolas who can slice and dice the bad guys and then come and hold you and cuddle you under a blanket, where your BFF is the most badass Mohiri chick ever, where you know amazing guys who hung out with Mozart.
You want all of it, and you don’t want it to end.
And then it does.
The good news is that when it DOES end, you aren’t disappointed. You feel satisfied, and full of awesome and you want to start from the beginning and read it all again… and you just might do it because it’s just that good…
It really is.
Thank you for this journey, Karen. I am mourning my loss of Sara and Nikolas but I hope that someone else can start this thrilling ride now too. =)
