Can you live a lie?
It’s a ghost town, this place that haunts me, the one that made me. It’s clear to me that I’ll never outgrow Triple Falls or outlive the time I spent here.
I can still feel them all, my boys of summer. Even when I'd sensed the danger, I gave in. I didn’t heed a single warning. I let my sickness and my love both rule and ruin me. I played my part, eyes wide open, tempting fate until it delivered. There was never going to be an escape.
All of us are to blame for what happened. All of us are serving our own sentences. We were careless and reckless, thinking our youth made us indestructible, exempt from our sins, and it cost us all. I’m done pretending I didn’t leave the largest part of me between these hills and valleys, between the sea of trees that hold my secrets. It’s the reason I’m back. To make peace with my fate. And if I can’t grieve enough to cure myself in my time here, I’ll remain sick. That will be my curse.
But it’s time to confess...to myself more so than any other, that I’d hindered my chances because of the way I was built, and because of the men who built me.
At this point, I just want to make peace with who I am, no matter what ending I get. Because I can no longer live a lie.
The Ravenhood trilogy is a gritty, modern-day take on Robin Hood filled with suspense, thrills, and all the feels.
I felt every word x2
The narrator is amazing, i love how i feel so connected to the characters. This is most definitely not your typical love story & i love it more for that reason.
I absolutely loved the first book, so I automatically assumed I would love this one as much. However, I did not. Not even close.
Don’t get me wrong, it was still a good read (or listen lol) and continued on with a good story. It just felt extremely repetitive. I don’t want to spoil anything, but I often found myself irritated with the repetition of things, the time jumps, and the turn the story took as a whole. I also often found myself bored because of the repetition and turned it off and didn’t turn it back on for a few days. I actually told myself I was not going to finish it many times lol. However, I did finish it and I am glad that I did. Overall, a good read and still probably going to be one of my favorite series.
I love this book so much. The emotions, the story telling. The narrators make this book come to life. On to next one!
