A story of two people who find light in their lives after one-night changes everything for them.
Gregory Scafoni is hurting and angry after he feels that he has been rejected by Helena Willow. His place in the Scafoni family gives him certain rights, but his older brother Sebastian has changed the rules and the legacy of the Scafoni family. Gregory still wants a woman of his own, and he has set a plan in place to attain her. Little does he know that his life will be changed again, but in so many good ways.
Amelia Willow is one of the Willow girls, she is the sister of Helena. Her life was changed the night of the culling, and she can’t seem to get the images out of her head. Even after she has drawn them so many times. She is a special Willow girl though. Even more special than her sister Helena, and Gregory is beginning to see this.
I enjoyed reading Taken and Torn, the first two books about the Scafoni and Willow families. This one was just as good if not better in my opinion. I loved how Gregory and Amelia drew out the best in each other. Not that they have a fairy tale story, but that their story starts from a legacy that they can’t shake and ends in a life of light and happiness. Amelia draws the good out of Gregory and they fit perfectly together.
I like how the characters grow in this story, even Sebastian and Helena grow more in this story and the siblings are able to find peace after such a hard start to their relationships. The rivalry for the Scafoni’s and the differences in the Willow’s are pushed aside and the siblings find life and happiness as a family.
I give this story a 4.5-star review and recommend it to anyone who likes dark, suspenseful, and stories of finding the light in life out of the darkness.
