There are so many parts in this that make you hold your breath as it is so intense!! Alexandra really did outdo herself this time!! It felt as if I was in the book and that I had known all the characters my whole life!!! I cried so much in certain points in this book and everytime I hear their name I always think of this book!! There were some points in the book that I had to re-read because I didn’t get my head around but I think it was an amazing book and leaves you on heart stopping cliff hangera!! I’ve been waiting for the last book of the trilogy (in the after light) to come into the library for 3 days and I am lost because all I think about is what might happen in the third book!! I can’t wait any longer so I might just buy the book!! Honestly another one of my favourite books!! ❤️❤️❤️
