Great characters. Primary and secondary.
Sucked me in right away. Kept me up until nearly 2 a.m.!!!!!!!
My heart ached for Ash ....
And Peter . . . I do NOT blame him. The dance of mental illness is a tough one. One many do not realize they are engaging in until they are fully caught up.
This was beautiful . . . .
I did sit worried that co dependency and fear kept them together, but was eventually convinced otherwise.
I worried that Ash and Peter would have an obstacle they couldn't overcome . . .
The epilogue was intentionally cliffhanger-y. but I knew this was a series when I started so that did not surprise me.
was this perfect? no.
do I care? no.
The sequel holds much hope for me . . .but it could also hold much disappointment. I am hopeful the sequel in not about another character but how Ash learns to care for himself. And how Pete learns to love him in their new space . . .without the elephant. Great review.
I need the sequel. Like now. Right now.
