***From NYT bestselling author Jasinda Wilder comes a standalone prequel story to the international bestselling The Falling Series.***
I wasn’t always in love with Nell Hawthorne; I was in love with a girl named India before I ever met Nell. India? She was my first love, the girl who made me want to be better than my past, better than the blood and violence.
Live by the sword, die by the sword, that’s what they say, right? It should have been me, that day. But it wasn’t. It was her. And that changed me. Sent me down an even darker path than I’d been on before.
Until I met her. Nell Hawthorne. The girl who changed everything.
You know that story. But what you don’t know is everything that led up to that rainy day under a tree, at a funeral.

I got this book in a promo from BookBub and started reading it without knowing it was the 5th book in a series! I was hooked immediately, right on the very first page, so I didn't bother reading the blurp first. When I was almost at chapter 4 I read the blurb of the book on Goodreads and then I was like, WTH?? How could I have missed the first 4 books? And since I ALWAYS like to read the books in a series in the right order (even if they're like standalones), I was... Unhappy (to put it gently) when I found that out. But then I read the first reviews saying that this book is a prequel and tells the story that happened before the first book. That encouraged me to keep reading and I loved it. I didn't particularly like all the graphic details on the fighting scenes (it turned boring after a while) but I liked the story so much that I'm giving it 5 stars despite of that. I loved Colton's journey, his relationship with India, his friendship with Tilda, all so sweet and awesome! Of course, I'm going to read the first 4 books now, even though the author's note at the end of the book was like a "You know the rest of the story, so goodbye", LOL! To me it should have been more like "welcome to a hell of a ride", which I can't wait to get in! ;)
He is amazing. Thank you for sharing his story!
Falling for Colton
The most depressing book I have ever read. Full of street language, and horrible characters doing horrible things. I thought I was going to read a love story.
