Description: Seventeen-year-old Alexandra Tate sits outside Nate Foster's house, clutching a gun. After serving ten years for the drunk driving accident that killed Alex's family, Nate has been released from prison. Every night, Alex waits out of sight, building up the courage to exact her own justice. There's just one problem: Forgiveness. Alex has been able to see personified Emotions for as long as she can remember, and Revenge is her best friend. But when Forgiveness suddenly appears, he offers Alex a choice--getting even or moving on. It's impossible to decide when Revenge whispers in one ear . . . and Forgiveness whispers in the other.
I Give This ...
I've been early awaiting this next part of the series. Part of me really wanted more of Fear, but realizing this was more of a companion book I was just happy to back with these characters.
Alexandra is one angry teenager. I'm not discounting her anger, because I think part of it is very justified. She's been through hell and back at a very young age. But, part of me wonders if those raising her shouldn't have been doing more to help her. I think they might have been afraid to push to hard. She makes reckless choice throughout this story. Since I've never been in her position, I found it hard to agree with many of the. Granted I don't think it helped that her companion since childhood was Revenge.
I truly love the concept of this series. For some reason that idea of emotions and elements being able to take on human forms in fascinating to me. I love how Revenge and Forgiveness battle it out in this one. They have to be constant enemies vying for the top prize. I loved each of them, even when I knew in my heart that it would be better for Alexandra to pick Forgiveness. I love the other elements that we see and how they perfectly embody the emotion they represent.
I hope Kelsey Sutton write more of these books. I don't think I would tire of getting to know different emotions in this light. Plus, I really enjoy the humans they interact with.
