Review:

I had mixed feelings about this book. As last books in the series go, it was a great ending! One of the best in a trilogy I have read in a very long time. (or like ever) Danielle covered all the questions, and everything was answered and you felt fine about closing the book and sitting back. Unlike most third books where you're like, "what the heck happens to so and so?" So it was a great ending to the triology.

BUT, there were some things that I didn't enjoy. Tyler was one of them. I liked Tyler a lot before this book, even though he wasn't the guy I didn't think Jenna should be with, I liked him. But in WAVES OF LOVE the whole time he was complaining about Jenna not loving him enough, and all he wanted to do was take off all her clothes, which I mean...if they were married, I wouldn't have minded too much, but for me, you don't want a guy who just wants to take off all your clothes. You want someone doesn't even think about that. At least not until you're married.

Another thing was, I was very confused about what was happening. In HEART WAVES, and Jenna having that one power, it was easy to follow, and it made sense. And then all of the things happened in BREAKING WAVES and then in WAVES OF LOVE and I was just staring at the pages like "What is happening?" it became too confusing for me to follow. And it didn't feel like it flowed well. 

Also Jenna was annoying me often in this, by the time the book was almost over, I was like "Jenna, PLEASE just pick someone and MOVE ON." I know it can be confusing, but most of her thoughts were just all jumbled.

But, in the end, everything was all good again. And I did enjoy the whole...*cough SPOILER* Past lives thing, I've always liked things about that, it makes the story exciting, and I've always loved Romeo and Juliet, I mean, who doesn't? And by the end, everything made sense with all the confusingness, and I could close the book and I was all good.

I enjoyed this book, but not as much as the first and second, but I loved how everything was all cleared up at the end, and that little tibid of Tyler at the end as well!

Rating: 3.5 stars.

Two Rings #4's title and cover reveal!!

The moment I have been waiting for...and maybe you too!! The final book in the Two Rings series is revealed today!!! (I know it's the first day of NaNo, but I wrote Shadow Future all those years ago, on this very day, so I thought it fitting. :))


Paperback full


Summary:

Pearl Underwood just wants it all to be over. She escaped the OverShadowers, and Adskhan. But not without a price. She’s still Fastened to him, and the memory of what he did to her haunts her. Giving her nightmares, and not even being able to say his name. The only thing that seems to be holding her together is, Max. She tries to learn more about her powers, keep them balanced. It keeps her sane, keeps her hoping for a better future. But she still feels like she belongs nowhere, even in the place with all the other people like her.
Max just wants Pearl to be herself again. Adskhan took everything from her, and all that’s left of his Pearl is an empty shell. He wants to be there for her, holds her when she cries, and tries to make everything better. But when his brother says that it’s time to start gathering the Hybrids again, he knows he has to leave her. He knows that Adskahn will come for her again, and when he’s suddenly thrust into being head of the Hybrids, Max faces his biggest challenge yet.
Will Pearl and Max be able to get past all their fears and worries and be together? Or will those who took everything get what they finally want?



Pretty right?! Hope always makes the best covers!! This is my favorite in the series, I love the combo of the black and white with the gold. :) It's a dual POV again. Pearl and Max. I'm sad to see the series end, but there are still a lot of books and stories yet to come. And possibly a short story for the Two Rings series? Maybe? We shall see. Thanks to everyone who helped with the reveal! :D
