I haven’t felt this way about a book since The Fault in Our Stars. I LOVED this book from the first paragraph and it just kept getting better and better. The lump in the throat also got bigger and bigger.
This is a book about death, but more about life. It’s been masterfully written about people who just go through life just existing are no better than those who are dead. This book is both beautifully haunting and sad as it is uplifting and inspiring.
Parker is a survivor. A bitter survivor but a survivor. Everett is a stranger but knows how to push her buttons to bring out the worst, which is actually her best. He’s managed to bring her from existing – to living. Everett has his own demons and is heartbreakingly worn down.
Original characters, original voice and the ending – just divine.
I honestly predicted a different ending. So I sat there, wiping my cheeks dry, thinking how am I going to review this – and I can only say I need everyone to read this book so I have someone to discuss it with. This book is truly a glaring reminder that there is always something to be grateful for.
This would have been five full stars but there was just one character I wasn’t sure about – Mira. Since speaking to the author about this book, silly me thought this was a standalone – and it is – it’s also part of a series and that I had read them out of order. Originally, I had no idea why Mira was in the book and it distracted me because I was coming up with a lot of questions about her and her role in the book.
Now that I have read the books and have them in the right order, I am super keen for Mira’s story which is told in He Saved Me.
As you know, I don’t do spoilers but I’m sure Parker would tell me … that’s just rude!
